Wood Grading

Rustic Grade – This grade of flooring is also referred to as ABC or Millrun. The flooring of this grade comes in different patterns of striking colours. It is characterised by a huge number of knots of different sizes.

Floors of this wood grade can be figured and may feature heavy grain markings, mineral staining, and a little amount of sap.

Rustic grade floors may come with machining defects, and can feature black knots and cracks on the surface. Fillers of black-grey or orange-cream colours are usually used to cover the defects. These colours also go with the floor’s oak grain tone.

A major proportion of flooring raw materials is rustic grade. This flooring type provides superior stability and tolerance to wearing. It offers best returns on investment too.

Prime Grade – This grade is the highest-ranking flooring grade. It also goes by the names of AB or Select grade. Floorings made of this grade of wood are the costliest because raw materials are available in highly limited quantities – supply comes from just 10% of an entire oak tree.

Floors of Prime Grade feature a uniform look though slight colour differences exist among boards.

An exception to the uniform look is timber, which features colour variations; these variations serve the purpose of enhancing the look of the floor. These variations form a distinct and key feature of this type of flooring.

Prime Grade floors feature grains that are straighter than grains found in other wood grades. Flooring boards may also feature a few small knots here and there, which forms another distinct and appealing feature of timber.
