WOODWORKS BY TED TODD FLOORING
European Larch Flooring
Native of the mountains of central and Northern Europe, this timber has already experienced a lifetime of weather effects before it lands in the hands of our Woodworks by Ted Todd handcrafting team. For instance, Larch was typically used as a building material in the 19th century, during the growing influence of the British empire.
Despite being a softwood, European Larch is secure and reliable. This means it doesn’t need as much frequent treatment, making it instead more like a hardwood such as European Oak.
What is European Larch Wood Flooring?
European Larch flooring has lots of natural features that cover the entirety of the planks. Wide grain patterns, knolls, knots and burrs, as well as some weather effects, can be seen on every piece of this timber.
The Larch wood is sustainably sourced from the beautiful mountain ranges of Europe, these solid and engineered flooring options feature creamy light sapwood and light ruby brown heartwood which either bring cool or warmth to a room.
Benefits of European Larch Wood Flooring
These woods are grown at a higher altitude than UK larches for example, giving them more hardwood characteristics, and making them more durable. These are tough timber, with high strength and rot resistant properties.
Rivelin and Peteril are both engineered with a 20mm thickness and a 6mm wear layer to last a lifetime, allowing you to sand the boards and keep the light tone maintained throughout. Each features a natural grain pattern that stretches across entire planks, which at up to 3m long, mean you can create a bold design statement across even the largest spaces thanks to a carefully hand-rolled edge.
Coated with a Naked Skin lacquer, these woods are splash resistant, making them appropriate for kitchens and hotel rooms, amongst others.
