The use of smaller wooden battens or blocks to create intricate flooring patterns goes back hundreds of years and is currently undergoing a huge revival. The Versailles pattern was created to help transform a humble hunting lodge into the famous Chateau de Versailles for Louis XVI; nowadays designers are mixing colours, creating their own patterns, and even introducing other textures with tiles of ceramic, glass, or even rubber.

Havwoods herringbone, chevron and Versailles pattern blocks originate from quite a number of different mills but, to make your search easier, we have brought most of them together under one collection. Here you will find both solid and engineered products, reclaimed, replica reclaimed and painted blocks, as well as unfinished ones for completion on site: all are of excellent quality, as you would expect, and more detailed construction information can be found in the introduction to the ‘Design from Havwoods products’ section.

USEFUL INFORMATION

Many of Havwoods products are suitable for use on floors, walls and ceilings. Ask for details.

In recent decades, just as modern finishing techniques have dramatically reduced the need to use exotic timbers to achieve certain shades and textures, modern lacquers and oils have ensured a level of durability which allows them to be specified even in high footfall locations.
Durability limitations are due, not to technology, but to the cellular nature of wood itself. Indeed, wood floors coated with aluminium oxide lacquers were found to achieve quite amazing abrasion resistance in laboratory conditions, but proved unsuitable for practical use – the lacquer proved to be harder and more inflexible than the wood underneath which resulted in a surface with a tendency to shatter on impact or go white when scratched. Our Fusion range provides a solution.
Fusion is produced by recreating our favourite floors on perfectly prepared High Density Fibre Planks. These engineered wood planks are considerably harder than hardwood, are totally consistent in their level of hardness, and, unlike wood in it’s natural state, are not cellular in nature. This means that they will not compress on impact and so can be successfully finished with the very latest aluminium oxide technology. The result is a beautiful, warm, matt lacquered 14mm bevelled plank which is installed as a floating floor, exhibits excellent acoustic and slip-resistant properties, and is virtually impossible to accidentally scratch, mark or dent. It may be fitted over underfloor heating and is backed by an exceptional 25-year residential, 15-year commercial warranty.

The Havwoods’ Hand Grade collection redefines the spectacular. It essentially reinvents oak flooring by offering the most magnificent planks up to 4m long and almost 1/2m wide in a choice of eight sensational shades. Three of these are wholly contemporary, whilst the remainder display the unique characteristics of a time-worn floor.

All Hand Grade products are supplied as pre-finished engineered boards, their enormous size enabled by superior stability provided by a triple layered construction with a base and lamella of European oak and core of WBP birch ply. They are finished with Hardwax Oil and the entire collection may be fitted over underfloor heating.

This is wood to reawaken your delight in wood flooring; to revise your preconceptions and revitalise your vision. We call it wood flooring reimagined.

HENLEY

Henley Designer Wood Flooring from Havwoods

USEFUL INFORMATION

Many of Havwoods products are suitable for use on floors, walls and ceilings. Ask for details.

Henley was originally devised as a collection suited to the needs of the hospitality industry, the criteria being fashion forward with interesting finishes which are still tough enough to withstand heavy footfall (we always personally test each and every one). The range is the ultimate designer’s tool: a pre-finished engineered collection from a number of different mills, all of which combine wonderful aesthetics with practicality, durability and structural integrity.

Now Henley is one of the three ranges to consider (the others being Relik and the Hand Grade collection) if you specifically want a pre-finished plank with texture. It is a quality, high performance engineered board, usually 19 or 20mm thick, with a hardwood surface layer which account for around 25% or more of the overall depth. It features a traditional tongue and groove profile but sawing, brushing, burning and planing techniques add character and tremendous visual interest without going to the extent of a reclaimed board.

Most Henley planks feature an oiled finish and are suitable for use over underfloor heating. And, as per the original definition, they remain particularly suitable for applications where damage from heels and/or pets are more noticeable on a smooth surface board.

PAR-KY

FREE SAMPLES

We provide a free sample service for the majority of our products. Call now for more details.

TPar-ky is a wood veneer plank. This means that a thin layer of real wood is bonded to an HDF (High Density Fibre) core.

HDF is compressed wood. It is considerably harder than hardwood, is totally consistent in its degree of hardness, and, unlike wood in its natural state, is not cellular in nature. This means that it will not compress on impact and is thus less likely to indent. It also means that it can be finished with an extremely hard lacquer without fear of it shattering.

Havwoods’ Par-ky planks are available in two thickness, one of which incorporates a layer of cork for extra acoustic and thermal insulation. They offer excellent value, making a real wood floor an option on even the tightest of budgets. Furthermore, all Havwoods’ Par-ky planks utilise prime grade wood, meaning that the surface is virtually free of knots and other natural characteristics and show very little colour variation. This makes them particularly suitable for those who prefer a very clean-looking floor.

PUREPLANK

Pureplank FSC Certified Wood Flooring

These pre-finished, FSC® certified, 14mm engineered planks utilize a click system and triple layered construction involving two layers of softwood with a European oak lamella. From a European mill established since 1973, they now have an annual production capability of 6,000,000m2. This huge capacity, combined with their insistence on maintaining in-house control of all aspects from the forest right through to the packing room floor and highly sophisticated quality control programmes, ensures consistent deliveries of excellent quality and makes this range perfect for the largest of projects. In addition to the standard 180mm width boards there is also a small collection of 130mm wide planks, whilst PurePlank Wide provides a more impressive, 207mm board with a 3.5mm lamella, which makes it more durable for commercial applications.

PurePlank offers lacquered, oiled and UV oiled finishes within the range, the lacquered planks being particularly tough with seven layers of UV-cured acrylic. We recommend a further coat of finish after installation for oiled boards (UV oiled boards do not need this). All carry a 20-year residential warranty and may be fitted over underfloor heating (please ask for details before specifying).

Relik embraces Havwoods’ rapidly expanding collection of reclaimed timbers under one brand. Sourced from a variety of specialist mills, it includes both reproduction and genuine reclaimed planks (reclaimed chevron and herringbone blocks are included in our Design collection).

Aged timber is visually inspiring and frequently comes with a fascinating history too. The unpainted solid oak products, for example, hail from the Maramures region of Transylvania, a region with a rich tradition of building in wood and where massive load-bearing timbers from vintage barns and houses are crafted into planks and blocks with the regular dimensions. The painted pine comes from North America, and still wears the remnants of the original paintwork from centuries old barns and farmhouses left empty in the exodus to the cities. All are planed and profiled and sanded using 21st century production techniques to produce boards which are straight, level and of a consistent thickness.

But the bulk of the Havwoods’ Relik range is made up of pre-finished engineered products. Engineering makes better use of the finite resources of timber which is reclaimed from barns, quays, docks, etc, and results in commercially viable, consistently sized boards which are easy to fit and so stable they may even be used over underfloor heating. And if you want something which looks the part yet is ultra tough, the engineered reproduction reclaimed ’weathered’ planks provide the optimum solution, since the processes involved in creating this texturing actually strips out the soft tissues between the grain.

Call 91 (0) 22 24938633 for your copy of our exciting new Italian Collection brochure.

Intricate flooring patterns using narrow planks and blocks, are a long-time feature of Italian design and are increasingly featuring in contemporary interiors internationally. In the most adventurous designs they are being mixed with tiles of earthenware, stoneware, ceramic, stone, and even rubber or glass for a truly unique, stand-out look. A narrower, thinner timber product provides more flexibility for these patterns, so this collection of glue-down engineered tongue and groove planks, herringbone and chevron blocks is no more than 11mm thick

Featuring a 4mm wear layer of the finest European oak, slow grown in cold northern forests for a dense, even grain, this range is milled in probably the most sophisticated and highly automated facility we have encountered, ensuring a quite remarkable consistency. Only select grade timbers are chosen, and these are bonded to layers of quality spruce or birch ply to form a strong and stable board which is FSC® certified.

The Italian Collection boards feature techniques which include brushing to open the grain and emphasise its natural characteristics, fuming and thermo treatments which darken it, and all are completed in-house. We stock three sizes, especially selected for producing the complex designs which are becoming such a strong feature of fashion-forward interiors. We also now stock a couple of 15mm thick products (a plank and a herringbone block) from the same mill: these were originally ordered especially for use in Southbank Tower.

TRAPA

This Austrian range is genuinely the creme de la creme of engineered timber flooring, so stable that it will withstand temperatures up to 60°C, requires no expansion gaps for stretches of up to 40m, and may even be fitted in a sauna!

An exclusive mill working in Italian chestnut, elm, larch, fir, French oak, American and European walnut, Trapa boards are mainly of a symmetrical, triple layered construction with a 4mm wear layer and quarter sawn inner core. Materials are always sourced from the same region to ensure consistency of tannin, colour, etc, and the wood is both air dried and then kiln dried before being cut. This is a costly and time-consuming process and Trapa is the only mill in the world who produce wood flooring in this way, but the result is exceptional. Crystallising natural oils, lye, heat & pressure are used to generate a variety of light-stable colour shades out of each wood species, the planks are sanded with an ultra-fine grit paper, saturated with oil and buffed with the grain instead of using a circular motion. The result is an exceptionally flat, exceptionally stable, exceptionally fine board with PEFC™ certification, suitable for use over underfloor heating and ideal for high footfall areas, and available in several interchangeable dimensions right up to gigantic planks measuring 8m long and over 400mm wide.

The Trapa products shown on our website are held in stock and we are delighted to announce that we have worked with the mill to offer them at even more attractive prices. The remainder of the 160-strong range is available to order, with a four-week lead time and only from Havwoods. Please note: Trapa grades do not correspond with our Havwoods standard grading and that the warranty is invalid if their own glue, trowel and maintenance kits are not used (never use micro-fibre materials).

With over 1000 timber products in our portfolio our passion for wood is indisputable, but occasionally we find a non-wood product which impresses us enough to include it. TrikBrik is one such product. You can recreate the Servian Wall overnight, emulate the Arc de Triomf in under a week, or simply turn pillars of plaster into pillars of stone in a day; if you’ve a mind to do something special, this is the product which will enable you to bring it to life.

Contemporary design is all about textures, so brick and stone now feature strongly in interiors. The downside is that they are heavy, messy to fit and require a skilled labour force; brick slips make use of any existing structure, but are equally as messy and are still best left to a bricklayer. TrikBrik is completely different: designed as a metre square interlocking cladding panel system, it comes complete with mastic and paints (sometimes several to achieve the effect) to hide the joins, and it enables you to achieve authentic-looking brick and stone walls and other features, quickly and cleanly using unskilled labour.

The patented manufacturing system is the result of no less than 30-years research. High density polyurethane, polyester resin and crushed marble stone produce an exceptionally light yet durable, highly realistic panel, with excellent thermal, acoustic and flame retardant properties. TrikBrik is water repellant and non-permeable, so will not be affected by humidity; nor will it fade in the sun. The panels are easily cut to size, requiring no special tools, and can be treated with anti-graffiti formula if required. Furthermore, they can be repainted with a polyester resin paint; so when your Arc de Triomf starts to pall in red, you can always paint it purple.

The vast majority of Havwoods’ products may be used as cladding as well as flooring, but the Vertical collection has been complied from products designed quite specifically for this purpose.

Once again, they have been sourced from a number of different mills and so have varying construction methods – details of which can be found in the introduction to the product section – but they include both solid and engineered products.
