Note: The availability of some species is state specific and some additional species may be available on request. The width is dependent on the species.
Precision milled to 13mm or 10mm thick, Boral overlay solid strip flooring is thinner than 19mm traditional solid strip flooring but the top layer is the same thickness. Because Boral overlay is laid directly over a structural surface such as concrete or plywood, it is well supported and the additional 6mm in thickness is not required.
- Boral overlay solid strip flooring should be glued onto a concrete slab or directly onto Boral plywood or particleboard.
- Boral Timber recommends that an experienced professional timber flooring contractor handles the installation as well as the sanding and finishing of a new hardwood timber floor. Ask a local timber flooring retailer for a recommended contractor.
- Timber flooring is not recommended for bathrooms, laundries or other wet areas.
- For further information on installation see the Boral Timber’s Product Installation Guide.
Underlays provide floor leveling, cushioning and acoustic properties. Boral Timber has a variety of quality underlays, such as Boral RV-4 Acoustic Underlay that can be installed with a solid timber floor to provide a range of quality flooring solutions. See the Boral Underlay brochure for more information.
Boral Overlay solid strip flooring is available in two grades. Boral Timber meets Australian Standards and uses the aesthetic Boral Timber grading system. Grading is distinguished by selective gum veins, spirals, burls, insect trails and other natural features that give timber floors a unique character, as individual as a signature. Boral Timber is not graded for colour variation or grain patterns as they form part of the natural beauty of timber flooring.
- Australiana Grade is carefully graded to include the most interesting and moderate natural features to enhance the look of a timber floor.
- Classic Grade is a subtle feature grade of timber flooring that provides a limited level of natural features. The lower levels of natural feature present the floor with a uniform look that is best suited to modern, minimalist styles.
