In larch, the natural grain pattern and colour variation of the wood are clearly visible. In addition to natural knots, larch surfaces also feature oval knots, round knots and knots that have been treated with brown wood cement.
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.
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 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.
Larch is a valued softwood species. The colour of its heartwood is a reddish brown, while the sapwood is lighter in colour. Larch withstands wear better than pine. Larch is characterised by its significant colour variations and knottiness.
In larch, the natural grain pattern and colour variation of the wood are clearly visible. In addition to natural knots, larch surfaces also feature oval knots, round knots and knots that have been treated with brown wood cement. The colour varies naturally from a light yellowish tone to a reddish colour. The rustic appearance of the wood evens out the variation.
