Boral Timber has released a 10mm overlay solid strip flooring product, designed to be laid directly over a structural surface, expanding its range of timber flooring solutions.
With an equivalent wear layer to the Boral solid strip flooring19mm and 13mm profile boards, Boral 10mm overlay solid strip flooring can be sanded three to four times during the lifespan of the timber.
The overlay does not need a bearer and joist sub floor and can be installed over a structural surface including concrete, existing timber floors or underply, with minimal impact to the height of the floor, proving an effective solution for renovation and refurbishment projects.
The new timber overlay comes in a choice of four popular Australian hardwood species including Blackbutt, Sydney Blue Gum, Brushbox and Spotted Gum, and is offered as a unique ‘standard and better’ grade, which combines Classic and Australiana featured boards.
Designed with no underside glue grooves, the boards have greater surface area contact between the timber and subfloor, resulting in better adhesion. To ensure stability and dimensional accuracy the 10mm boards are straight-line profiled, making them easier to install.
Boral 10mm overlay makes better use of solid timber resources, resulting in an alternative flooring option when the additional thickness is not required.
Boral Timber has achieved Australian Forestry Standard (AFS) Chain of Custody certification for its timber products. This means that timber used to produce Boral Timber’s hardwood flooring has been sourced from certified, legal and sustainably managed resources. The AFS is the only forest certification scheme that complies to an Australian Standard AS 4708-2007. The AFS is a member of the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Scheme Council (PEFC) - the world’s largest forest management certifier.
