A fairly light and beigey flooring where the grain of the wood stands out as lighter than the undertone. The wax oiling makes it durable, pleasant for the feet, and easy to maintain.
When choosing a wood species, it is important to consider the different characteristics of each species, such as durability and appearance. Read about tree species and their characteristics at the bottom of the page. The choice affects the price of the product.
Patterned wooden flooring is also available in this tone. The different patterns are shown on the patterned wooden flooring page. Due to the extensiveness of our product range, our website does not contain images of all the available variations. The choice affects the price of the product.
The product is available in several widths. The width affects both the price and the installation method. Examples of this are 230 mm products that are glued from the end tongue and grooves, and 270 mm products that are always glued to the underlay. Patterned wooden flooring is always installed by gluing it to the underlay. The choice affects the price of the product.
Knottiness – that is, the grade of the wood – refers to the amount of knots and natural variations in tone of the different tree species.
Select is an almost knot-free grade that is as evenly-toned as can be. Available for oak, ash and larch.
Classic is the most natural grade, with small and medium-sized knots and holes filled with wood cement as well as the variations in shade that are natural for wood.
Larch Natural grade is characterised by knottiness and significant colour variations. Filled knots, as well as round knot patches and oval patches are allowed within the grade. Available for larch.
Vintage is the knottiest and most coarse-grained grade, with no limit on the number or size of knots. Even cracks and large knot holes filled with wood cement are allowed.
Olive is an ash grade with a dark heartwood alongside a light sapwood.
The Design grade is its own grade of patterned wooden flooring, and is similar to the Classic grade.
Surface treatment refers to surface sanding or brushing. Brushing raises the grain pattern of the wood to the surface, exposing the structure. The brushed surface is comfortable to stand on barefoot and is recommended for families with pets and children, as scratches are not as visible as they are on smooth-polished surfaces. Sanded surfaces are flat and smooth, which facilitates cleaning. The choice does not affect the price of the product.
Our products are available with a choice of two finishes: hard wax oil or matte lacquer. Both finishes are UV-cured, making them moisture-repellent and easy to care for. The hard wax-oiled surface is not slippery and can be repaired in places if necessary. It does not require regular maintenance oiling (such as natural oiling), but is waxed according to wear. The matte-lacquered surface provides greater abrasion resistance, and is therefore an excellent choice for lobbies, hallways and kitchens, for instance. The choice does not affect the price.
The product is available with either 5G WiseLoc locking joints or conventional adhesive joints. Some products or widths are available with only a glued tongue and groove (e.g. 270 mm wide product and patterned wooden flooring). The choice does not affect the price.
The samples ordered from the sample shop are always tone samples only – they do not show the width, grade or pattern of the product. We recommend ordering a sample, as variations in the colour settings of different computer screens can cause the image to differ from the actual colour of the product.
Arctic was Timberwise’s first-ever shade, and has remained a popular standard shade from the beginning. Arctic is available for both oak and larch. The Arctic shade clearly shows how much the particular wood species affects the appearance of the product, even when the shade treatment is the same for the different species.
In the Oak Arctic shade treatment, the white tone is rubbed into the grain pattern of the wood, making it stand out beautifully as a whitish tone on the beige surface. When applied to larch, the Arctic shade is more even, and balances out the inherent variation in the reddish to light-yellowish colour of the larch.

All types of wood can be damaged by excessively dry indoor air. If the relative humidity of the indoor air falls below the recommended level of 35 to 60%, cracks may appear in the floor. To prevent this, remember to monitor the humidity of the indoor air, especially during winter and other dry periods. Add moisture to the air if necessary, for example with a humidifier. Larch reacts most sensitively to dry indoor air, and hairline cracks or fissures may appear more quickly than with other woods. The optimal relative humidity level for wood, 35 to 60%, is also the optimal indoor humidity for humans.
