QLD Spotted Gum


The heartwood color range of QLD Spotted Gum is quite extensive, spanning from a light tannish brown to dark browns, and sometimes displaying a deep reddish tinge. It is considered one of the darkest brown species found in Australia. In contrast, the sapwood is noticeably lighter. The grain often exhibits an interlocked pattern and commonly showcases a distinctive “fiddleback” figure, characterized by wavy lines. The colors can vary depending on the specific regions where it is grown. The unique variations of colours make it the perfect choice for matching any colour scheme within your home. Additionally, QLD Spotted Gum is truly hard-wearing and its strong nature makes it highly resistant to scratches and dints.

QLD Spotted Gum FAQs

01Does QLD Spotted Gum flooring require acclimation before installation?

Yes, like most hardwood flooring, QLD Spotted Gum should be acclimated to the environment where it will be installed. This process allows the wood to adjust to the temperature and humidity of the room, reducing the risk of warping or buckling after installation.

02 Can I install QLD Spotted Gum flooring in high-moisture areas, such as bathrooms or basements?

It is not recommended to install QLD Spotted Gum flooring in high-moisture areas as it is a natural wood product and may be susceptible to damage from prolonged exposure to moisture.

03How should I maintain my QLD Spotted Gum flooring?

Regular maintenance includes sweeping or vacuuming to remove dust and debris, and occasional damp mopping with a hardwood floor cleaner. Avoid using excessive water, harsh chemicals, or steam mops, as they can damage the wood's finish.

Janka rating, also known as Janka hardness test, is a measure of the hardness of wood. It is a standardized test that measures the amount of force required to embed a small steel ball into a piece of wood. The Janka rating is expressed in kN (kilonewton), and the higher the rating, the harder the wood.

The Janka rating is commonly used to determine the suitability of a particular wood species for use in flooring, furniture, and other applications where durability is important. Some woods with high Janka ratings include Brazilian Walnut, Hickory, and Brazilian Cherry, while woods with lower Janka ratings include Pine and Cedar.

It is important to note that while the Janka rating can provide a useful indication of a wood's hardness, it does not necessarily reflect other important characteristics of the wood, such as its resistance to decay, its stability, or its appearance.
