Reclaimed Flooring – Douglas Fir
We’re really proud to be able to present our full collection of Reclaimed Douglas Fir Flooring. From a rustic Charcoal, with a combination of honey, auburn and black tones. To Nordic White, a beautiful whitewashed Douglas Fir. Whatever your interior project, our colour palette will have something to complement.
What is Douglas Fir?
It’s an evergreen conifer, native to western North America. Part of the pine family it can live for more than 1000 years. It’s one of the most popular choices in commercial projects. Used to make beams, veneers, furniture, cladding, and flooring.
All of our Douglass Fir timber has been acquired from old mills. When a mill is being demolished we salvage timber beams. These wood beams are then machined to make all of our Reclaimed Douglas Fir Flooring Collection.
Why Purchase Reclaimed Douglas Fir?
Reclaimed Douglas Fir has been seasoned for 50-120 years which allows the timber to gain a great depth of colouration. The age of the timber also means it is harder, stronger and more stable than newly harvested Douglas Fir. The reclaimed timbers are environmentally friendly as well as individual characteristic running throughout each plank such as bolt and nail holes which makes each piece of timber truly unique.
The Technical Bits
All of our Douglas Fir flooring is manufactured on site in our Yorkshire workshops. This gives us maximum control when producing your floor. The majority of or collection is finished with a raw lacquer, giving the flooring an unfinished and natural look. A lacquer sits on top of the wood surface providing protection, yet is low maintenance.
The Reclaimed Douglas Fir Flooring collection is all priced as an engineered product. The Douglas Fir is machined to 6mm(+/-0.5mm) and then engineered on to a 15mm birch plywood. This creates an extremely stable product, making it suitable to use with under floor heating systems. That said, if you require your flooring to be solid, this can be accommodated.
With all reclaimed products, no two pieces are the same. This means that each board length can vary. On average the boards are 1600mm, but please bear in mind they can be anywhere from 400mm up to 2450mm.
Please note that our flooring is a natural product. The colour, grain knots and markings will vary from batch to batch, as well as from one plank to another. This makes our flooring a truly unique natural product.
We’ve been lucky enough to supply our Douglas Fir Flooring to numerous projects around the UK. A firm favourite has been Nordic White, supplied to one of our kitchen clients. If you would like to see the full project it’s Bespoke Kitchen Project 25.
