Tasmanian Oak Flooring FAQs

01What are the advantages and disadvantages of Tasmanian Oak flooring?

Tasmanian Oak flooring is highly regarded as one of the best choices due to its numerous benefits, including resilience, long-lasting properties, and excellent resistance to water and sunlight. This hardwood timber possesses a moderate level of hardness, making it easy to work with without compromising its integrity.

However, one drawback of Tasmanian Oak flooring is its tendency to expand if not properly acclimated before installation. Insufficient acclimation and exposure to excessive moisture can lead to undesirable consequences

02 Is Tasmanian Oak classified as a softwood or hardwood?

Tasmanian Oak is indeed classified as a hardwood with respectable resilience. However, on the Janka scale, it ranks 5.5, making it one of the lighter hardwoods commonly used for flooring. Its workable quality makes it a favored option for crafting cabinets and tables.

03 Can Tasmanian Oak be considered a versatile flooring option?

Tasmanian Oak is indeed a versatile flooring option, thanks to its color variation. You have the flexibility to choose designs that lean towards cream and straw-colored tones, perfect for complementing decor. On the other hand, you can create a warmer ambiance by opting for shades with hints of pink or reddish-brown.

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.
