Get high contrast grains and exotic textures from our Brimham Tropical Acacia 120 x 18mm. Each ABC graded plank of Acacia is milled to a thickness of 18mm, proving highly durable and tremendously attractive wood. Suited to areas of moderate-to-high footfall, each board will exhibit a wide range of colour variations, intricate knots, and unique blemishes, preventing minor scuffs and scratches from appearing noticeable. For additional protection and an elegant sheen to match, up to 7 layers of lacquer are applied to the surface of this flooring. Not only does this make for an affluent aesthetic, the lacquer finish also reduces the overall maintenance required to keep the boards looking their best. Accidental spills and splashes won’t seep into the wood, and can be pacified with a damp mop or cloth.
Each board comes in random lengths ranging from 300mm – 1200mm, and have an accompanying width of 122mm. Utilising a single strip design, this choice of flooring achieves a perfect balance of uniformity and spontaneity, exhibiting a multitude of natural properties. One of the most impressive features of this product is its ease of fitting. A ‘tongue and groove’ installation system is cut into the centre of each board, allowing for adjoining planks to fit together. This process, known as floating, is highly secure, proving stable underfoot without the necessity of additional nails and adhesives. Because of this, this type of flooring has remained a popular choice amongst DIY enthusiasts.
The surface of this flooring has been given a micro-bevelled edge during the manufacturing process. This creates a small indent between the joins of each plank, improving the pronunciation of the boards. Whilst most solid wood flooring won’t see noticeable surface damages for at least 10 years, the overall thickness of the board permits sanding and re-finishing up to 8 times. As a result, this product can last an entire lifetime, and still retain the same stunning visual qualities it had when it was first installed.
To vouch for the longevity of our Brimham Tropical Acacia, we include a 25-year guarantee with purchase, so you can always rest assured that your flooring is built to last.
Our Solid Wood flooring can be installed in two different ways, so it depends on your subfloor and what sort of method you prefer.
- 1. Gluing
With this method, adhesive is applied to the top of the subfloor with a trowel and then the individual planks are laid on top. This is our favoured method for tongue and groove parquet flooring.2. Nailing
With this method, secret nails go through the tongue to secure the planks to a wooden subfloor. Professional fitters tend to prefer this method as the result is extremely secure. You'll need to fit a wood layer above any concrete because secret nailing cannot be done directly on top of a concrete subfloor.
