New to the UK: Exquisitely crafted timber flooring from Austria
We are pleased to announce yet another new and utterly beautiful range of wood flooring available only from Havwoods. Trapa is a relatively small and exclusive mill working in ash, elm, larch, Douglas Fir, French oak, American and European walnut. Crystallising natural oils, lye, heat & pressure are used to generate a variety of light-stable colour shades out of each wood species and many are available in several interchangeable dimensions, right up to enormous planks measuring 8m long and over 400mm wide.
The quality is exceptional. Most Trapa products are of a symmetrical, triple layered construction with a 4mm wear layer and quarter sawn inner core. Particular care is taken over the drying process, with several separate, highly controlled air and heat drying stages; the planks are then sanded with an ultra-fine grit paper, saturated with oil and buffed with the grain instead of in a circular motion. The result is an exceptionally flat, exceptionally stable, exceptionally fine board with PEFC™ rating.
We aim to hold in stock a limited selection of the 160-strong Trapa by Havwoods collection, with the remainder available to order. For a taster follow this link to see the current Trapa brochure.
