Try wide board timber flooring

Open plan interiors and larger living spaces are ideal for integrating the wide board look and timber is a good choice for building because it is a natural and renewable resource.

Open plan interiors and larger living spaces are ideal for integrating the wide board look and timber is a good choice for building because it is a natural and renewable resource.

Boral Timber has introduced a wider board option to its engineered flooring portfolio, available in the popular Australian hardwood species of Blackbutt and Spotted Gum.

The new Boral Engineered Wideboard Flooring comes in 186mm wide, one strip boards featuring a matte sheen brushed finish that highlights the natural colour and features of the timber.

Boral Timber national sales and distribution manager, Leon Travis, said open plan interiors and larger living spaces were ideal for integrating the wide board look.

“Engineered flooring has become a popular choice for both new build projects and renovations, delivering a striking timber floor with the benefit of a quick and easy installation over many surfaces,” he said.

“Homeowners now have the option of two popular widths – 134mm and 186mm wide boards – to create a stunning room makeover, or update flooring throughout their house or apartment (excluding wet areas).

“Pre-finished with seven layers of 10 per cent matte sheen UV cured acrylic coating, the 4mm nominal hardwood top layer allows resanding and recoating for a long service life.

“The board has a four-side Uniclic 14mm profile for a tight board-to-board fit and a smooth consistent finish.”

The new wider boards are also offered in a 2.2m length which is longer than the 134mm boards.   

Boral Engineered Wideboard Flooring can be laid over a level subfloor such as a concrete slab, particleboard or plywood sheeting, old timber floors and tiles. 

A variety of quality underlays can be installed with the flooring to address floor levelling, cushioning and any acoustic concerns.

Boral Engineered Flooring is a sustainable engineered timber flooring choice. It is Chain of Custody certified by the Australian Forestry Standard, which has mutual recognition by the world’s largest forest management certifier, the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Scheme. This means the timber is produced using certified, legal and sustainably managed sources.
