Timber

European parquet Timber floors are a luxurious choice in any home.

European Oak parquet is a stylish wood floor creating aesthetic appeal. What's more, this engineered timber is a stable, dense substrate, ensuring optimum performance and resilience. A fact the French have known for centuries.

Engineered parquet timber is popular for its ability to remain in shape in various climatic conditions – which solid timber can’t do. What’s more, it exudes warmth and character, lending timeless appeal to your property.

So, whether you prefer a traditional or modern style, Signature timbers offer a wide range of options. The added benefit is installing these collections with underfloor hydro heating to a maximum of 21C. What’s more, these European style oaks are sourced from certified sustainable forests.

Timber Flooring Features

Features

Sustainability

Oak parquet planks use only a fraction of the valuable hardwood timber species compared to solid timber planks. This makes them a sustainable choice in home flooring. All Signature timbers come with international certifications and initiatives promoting sustainable forestry management. Timbers also comply with the strictest international standards – ISO 16000 – for indoor air quality emissions.

Parquet

There are many advantages to parquet timber. These include:

Stability: Since the parquet is mounted onto a solid baseboard, it keeps its shape under most conditions. In contrast, solid timber shrinks and expands with climatic changes.

Underfloor Heating: Install these parquet planks over underfloor hydro heating without worry. Unlike solid timber floors that do not offer this specific benefit. 

Multi-Layer: The top layer of hardwood timber is fixed to a solid core and a base layer. This helps create an incredibly strong plank. As a result, large planks remain dimensionally stable, unlike solid timber.

Artisans

The techniques used to create Signature's timber planks are the same as those used for centuries across Europe. In fact, talented artisans today, use hand filling and finishing to feature knots and cracks for an aged look that exudes character. By using brushes and hand saws, they accentuate the natural grain of the wood and add texture to each plank. They also hand finish planks with a light brush for a more refined surface.

Some oak boards are ‘smoked’ using a special vapour that reacts to the tannins in the wood. This ageing process darkens the wood and further brings out the natural grain.

Signature is proud to foster the skills of true artisans whose skills can still be enjoyed in Australian homes.

Finish

Protective lacquer finishes produce timber surfaces that are harder, more durable and scratch-resistant. In fact, the lacquer bonds to the top of the timber to form a hardened protective layer. This makes them easier to clean and maintain. Signature timbers offer both Bona Cure UV lacquer and Ultimtec® soft-touch lacquer.

Extras

V-Groove: Signature timbers' precision shaping delivers heaps of benefits. In that, the 4 sided V-grooves highlight each plank, whilst 2 sided V-grooves give the appearance of longer lines.

Core: A high-density fibreboard (HDF) provides excellent dimensional stability and withstands the rapid temperature and humidity change in Australia. That's why Signature timbers feature high-density cores for optimum quality control and performance. Hevea – used in a selection of Signature ranges – is a naturally sourced and renewable wood derived from rubber trees.  It's also an excellent core material for its mechanical strength and stability.
