European Larch Flooring
European Larch Flooring
Native of the mountains of central and Northern Europe, European Larch experiences all manner of weather effects, adding to the characterful appearance of the flooring. Cherished for its unique, natural look which links your project to nature, this is a unique species for residential and commercial projects.
Larch was typically used as a building material in the 19th century, during the growing influence of the British Empire. Despite its perception as softwood, European Larch is durable and reliable. This means the wood will last a lifetime in your projects and is easy to maintain with our intelligent Floor Care Systems.
What is European Larch Wood Flooring?
European Larch has naturally characterful featuring throughout. Wide grain patterns, knolls, knots and burrs, as well as some weather effects, can be seen on every piece of this wood. Natural variation should be expected and celebrated, giving your spaces a feeling of natural relaxation.
European Larch wood is sustainably sourced from the beautiful mountain ranges of Europe, these engineered flooring options feature creamy light sapwood and light ruby brown heartwood which either bring cool or warmth to a room.
We have also crafted a number of our Carbonised floors using fine European Larch, as apposed to the Reclaimed Swiss Pine used previously for much for the collection. This is due to the Larch being more malleable when charred, meaning our masterful artisans can sculpt a much deeper surface texture with heavier brushing techniques.
Benefits of European Larch Wood Flooring
Larch species 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. Being light in tone, they can providing a relaxing sense to spaces.
Elsewhere, in the Carbonised collection, our European Larch floors have been handcrafted into floors of unique colours, with black Carbonised accents running throughout. These are high impact, high design floors that require an important sense of style to be successfully implemented into projects.
