8.1 - Rustic Grade - Also known also as Millrun or ABC contains vibrant colourful patterns, unlimited knots of varying sizes and unlimited colour variation. Floor can display heavy grain markings, figuring, mineral staining and some sap.
In rustic grade flooring black knots and surface cracks as well as occasional machining defects can be seen. These are typically filled with black/grey filler or orange/cream filler to match the oak grain.This flooring offers great value for money, as the majority of the raw material will contain this type of grade, without compromising on the quality, wear and stability of the floor.
8.2 - Prime Grade - Also known as Select or AB grade is the highest of the grades of flooring and will usually have the following characteristics:
Slight colour variation between the boards and more uniform look, except for timbers where variation in colour adds to its beauty and is the main feature of the wood. The grain is straighter than in other grades and sometimes the boards have very few, infrequent small knots, as these are specific to the beauty of the timber. Prime grade wooden floors are the most expensive due to the limited supply in the raw material, accounting for approximately 10% of an oak tree.
