Introducing Our Timba 5G Engineered Oak Collection

Timba Floors originated over 10 years ago when they saw an opportunity to develop a core range of flooring in the UK market. Since then, they have continuously innovated and evolved to build upon their stunning collection of flooring.

Utilising a network of meticulously selected manufacturing partners in Poland, Ukraine, China, and the United Kingdom, they have adopted a position of continuous product development. These carefully managed facilities play a crucial role in producing high-quality products for markets in mainland Europe, the UK, the USA, and Asia.

As well as their sophisticated distribution network, Timba Floors is also an FSC member. This means that they ensure their products are as sustainable as possible, that raw materials are purchased from well-managed and sustainable forests that are compliant with global standards which include FSC® and EUTR.

The Timba Floor 5G Engineered Oak Flooring Collection is European made, manufactured from the best locally sourced timbers and utilizes the market-leading Välinge 5G LOC system. Most engineered floors use a tongue and groove system, which requires glue and the services of a professional fitter more often than not. But with the 5G LOC system, boards are able to click together to be installed with ease like a jigsaw puzzle, saving you money due to the faster fitting times, or if you choose the DIY option.

Suitable to be fit over underfloor heating and floated over underlay, these engineered wood floors give more versatility when it comes to installation.

The 5G collection is made with the popular 14mm engineered planks, with widths varying from 130-207mm, suitable for both domestic and commercial installation alike. Whether you’re looking for a classic natural finish or a premium style of flooring, the Timba Floor 5G collection will keep that feeling of natural elegance, style, and beauty no matter which floor you select.

All of these real wood floors feature some of today’s most on-trend colours and finish techniques. With a veneer of solid oak, floor styles for every room are accommodated for, be it a narrow and streamlined look or a wide board finish, classic natural oak, natural warming tones, or contemporary shades like greys. All are enjoyed among designers and clients keen on flexing their designer skills. A Timba floor is an investment in a better space, bringing all the warmth and beauty that natural wood has to offer.

Brushed & Oiled - Brushed & Oiled Timba floors look incredible, the oil finish bringing out the natural grains and knots of the wood, really giving each board character. They have practical merits too, a wood floor with an oiled finish will prevent dust buildup, and is spot repairable. They do have to be refinished with a new layer of oil every 10 years or so, or in areas where some damage to the boards has occurred.

Brushed Matt Lacquered (or Lacquered) - Brushed Matt Lacquered floors are traditionally known to offer a more glossy finish, giving the wooden boards a smooth gleam. However, there are many matt and satin finishes available which produces a less glossy effect. Matt Lacquered floors tend to look similar to oiled floors, prioritizing the wood’s more natural look rather than looking to add shine, but they are easier to maintain.

Patterned flooring: Herringbone & Chevron - The Timba Floor parquet collection features two distinct parquet floors, chevron and herringbone. These floors boast timeless patterns deeply rooted in history, once used to decorate the castles and palaces of kings, now available to everyone; it's not hard to see why parquet flooring has made a resurgence in modern interior design.
