HRC3000 Chione 250mm Engineered Oak Cladding

  • Range: Vertical
  • Havwoods Code: HRC3000

Chione is a triangle-shaped plate with sides of 25cm length. This is a 3-dimensional form in the shape of a conical, irregular tetrahedron. Due to the lack of symmetry the plate can be laid in many different ways. The geometric shape makes it ideal for modern interiors. Each wall casts a shadow at various angles.

Chione is an engineered wood tetrahedron - a three-dimensional triangular pyramid with sides of 25cm length. Milled from prime grade European oak and finished with a matt oil, this wooden tile it is perfect for creating drama in a contemporary setting.

What is meant by prime grade?

Whilst you are no doubt aware that wood is graded according to its appearance, you may be surprised to learn that there are no international grading standards. At Havwoods we deal with many different mills, from many different countries, so for consistency we have defined our own grading rules.

This board uses prime grade timber, which is the cleanest of all the grades. There will be few, if any, knots and they will be of minimal size. There will also be minimal sapwood and relatively little colour variation.

If you prefer a board with more visual variation then refine your search to look for a character, natural or rustic grade board.

What is the species?

This product is milled in Europe from European oak. European oak is actually a generic name for two different species, both of which are classified as white oak and exhibit essentially the same characteristics. Also know by their country of origin, e.g. English oak, French oak, et cetera, they have a warm golden, honey colour, slightly richer and less pink-toned than American Oak and with more even colouring. They also have a distinctive wavy grain pattern with scatterings of pips and burr and are particularly suited to the fuming process, ensuring more consistent results.

In general, European mills utilise a technique known as live sawing. This results in a mixture of plain, quarter and rift sawn cuts all in one wide plank of wood. Capturing all parts of the wood in one cut like this gives the floor a unique and notably beautiful appearance, and because at least a third of the cut is quarter sawn, the planks themselves are particularly stable.

What is meant by engineered wood?

Some people confuse engineered wood with laminate, but nothing could be further from the truth. Laminate flooring may look like wood, but it is not, it is simply a photographic image under a clear protective layer. Engineered wood, however, is the real thing. And once laid it is virtually impossible to distinguish it from solid wood. But instead of being milled from a single piece of timber, engineered boards consist of several layers, and this construction results in a number of very sound advantages.

In an engineered board, the top layer is, of course, solid wood, whilst the other layers may be plywood, softwood or yet more layers of hardwood. Each layer is bonded to the next with the grain running at right angles, which makes it virtually impossible for the board to swell or shrink. So when it is laid it is highly unlikely to warp and gap, or otherwise suffer in the same way as solid wood flooring can when exposed to changes in humidity through the use of heating and air conditioning, or simply due to a change in the weather.

In addition to being far more stable, engineered wood offers several other benefits. It may be laid as a floating floor, as well as being nailed or glued down, and some planks even come in an easy to fit 'click' system. It is usually pre-finished, meaning you see exactly how your floor will look before it is fitted and ensuring a faster, easier installation with no mess and no fuss. And, because it isn't affected by changes in humidity, it is available in much wider, longer, more imposing planks. Finally, it is particularly kind to the environment, because every beautiful, stable, hard wearing engineered timber floor fitted uses less of the slow-growth hardwoods. Little wonder that engineered timber is now by far the most popular type of timber flooring fitted around the world.
