Austrian range is the creme de la creme of engineered timber flooring,
offering products so stable that they will withstand ambient
temperatures up to 60°C and may even be fitted in a sauna.
Trapa boards are of a triple layered construction, many of them
symmetrical with a 4mm wear layer and quarter sawn inner core. Materials
are always sourced from the same region to ensure consistency of
tannin, colour, etc, and the wood is both air dried and then kiln dried
before being cut. This is a costly and time-consuming process, but the
result is exceptional. Crystallising natural oils, lye, heat and
pressure are used to generate a variety of light-stable colour shades
out of each wood species, the planks are sanded with an ultra-fine grit
paper, saturated with oil and buffed with the grain instead of using a
circular motion. The result is an exceptionally flat, exceptionally
stable, exceptionally fine board with PEFC™ certification (not HW10176),
suitable for use over underfloor heating and ideal for high footfall
areas, available in several interchangeable dimensions right up to
gigantic planks measuring 8m long and over 400mm wide.
The products shown here are held in stock. The remainder of the 160-strong range is available to order, only from Havwoods.
