Our wood floor is not just any floor. The rough-sawn timber must first pass our strict selection procedures. We work with trustworthy European sawmills who only use wood harvested from sustainable forestry projects. Seeing is believing, which is why we regularly visit the sawmills to check.
After arrival at Schijndel, the rough-sawn wood is checked for size, grading and quality before being further processed.
Moisture content very much determines the stability of a wooden floor.
At OakHeart, we only use state-of-the-art drying kilns, operated by highly skilled staff. This ensures our wood always has the optimum moisture content for installation in any country worldwide.
After the drying process, the wood is calibrated and selected in various grades and sizes, and is then put on stock in one of our climate controlled warehouses.
This wood will later be profiled into solid boards or top-layers for engineered floors, Once a perfect solid or engineered board has been produced by state-of-the-art machines, it is time for the surface and color finish. This may be carried out by machine or, in many cases, by hand. We use various natural coloring process to achieve our beautiful color range.
During each production stage several quality-control checks are carried out. After air drying of the oiled finish, a final quality check is carried out by skilled staff before the floor boards are packed. The result? A unique floor to be proud of.
Packaging is chosen depending upon the transport method. Whether by road, sea or air your floor should arrive in perfect condition.
