Our Lesiure Projects

What is leisure wood flooring?

Wood flooring for restaurants and other leisure flooring types require completely different specification to those you’ll find in residential and personal areas. These floors can’t simply be beautiful, they must fight back against the challenges the sector presents them, with thick boards, sizeable wear layers and finishes that are unafraid of potential damage. They also need to be easy to maintain, fire resistant and slip resistant, all of which are covered throughout our Ted Todd and Woodworks by Ted Todd portfolios. For exceptional gym flooring, restaurant flooring and beyond, we cannot recommend our Strada collection enough. Hardwearing for high-traffic areas, each of the floors in this collection hosts a thick 6mm wear layer atop a 20mm European Oak board. Plus, with 7,000 taber resistance and a twelve-coat finish for maximum protection, these flooring solutions are almost impossible to bear for the leisure industry. Bernini for example, is 20mm thick, hosts a 6mm wear layer and is double satin lacquered for lifelong protection of the almost-white tone, meaning you can easily maintain the floor with a simple brush and a polish every now and then. Available in herringbone as well as long 2.2m planks, you don’t have to compromise on design either, making Bernini both a functional and impactful restaurant flooring option. Elsewhere, consider wood beyond the floor for your restaurant flooring ideas, with our Bold Surfaces portfolio. These reclaimed timbers are packed with character, adding texture and personality to walls, ceilings, dividers and other surfaces with ease; and being so uncommon, they are floors you are unlikely to come across ever again, making your project unique. Don’t feel restricted to only these two collections however, we have floors featuring thick wear layers, impressive dimensions and beautiful colours, so regardless of your specification, you’re certain to find a fitting flooring or cladding for your upcoming projects. Should you still struggle to find something you desire, why not go down the bespoke route?

What areas of the leisure industry benefit from real wood floors?

Whether you are looking for commercial gym flooring, cladding for a bar or need to cover and entire dining hall expanse you’re certain to find benefits when working with Ted Todd.

For restaurants, we have a range of family-proof floors with lifetime lacquer and oil finished floor, meaning you can cover any surface with texture and character without having to worry about the colour and feel being worn down over time. Likewise, for commercial kitchens you can rely on the splash resistance and 25-year guarantee that comes with every Ted Todd floor to ensure that your project pushes back against the tests of time.

We have a vast stock of strong engineered timbers, including the rare and wonderful, so you can really throw out the rulebook and create a design exactly as you have visioned, and if you’re looking for a little inspiration, be sure to take a look through our case studies too.

Why choose real wood flooring over alternatives like vinyl flooring?

A Ted Todd fine wood floor is only ever crafted from real timber meaning you always have that genuine touch, look, sound and even smell. All of which adds up to make a space comforting and warm, something flooring tiles and vinyl flooring simply cannot stand up against.

Not only aesthetically are wood floors superior though, they last much longer, and are a lifetime investment rather than a single-use, value engineered solution. That means less expense, less carbon emissions and ultimately, less hassle over the lifecycle of your project. You simply know when it’s real and you know when it’s Ted Todd.
