dddd Solid Parquetry Floors   solid parquetry    

Parquetry is a solid timber (see notes on sustainability in 'Solid Timber Flooring' section)

Solid parquetry is available in most Australian Timbers as well as European Oak and American White Oak. Southern Timber Floors use either 14mm or 19mm thick blocks. The traditional size is 260mm long x 65mm wide but other sizes are available including 390mm x 65mm, 400mm x 80mm and custom made sizes. Also available in European Oak are Chevron and French Panels.

Each individual block is trowel glued to the sub floor (see section on ‘Installation) into the pattern of your choice e.g. Herringbone, Double Herringbone, Marie Antoinette and Versailles etc. You can even design your own pattern. The finished floor is then sanded and polished 3 times in the polish of your choice (see Sanding and Polishing).

Parquetry was once considered the product of the aristocracy but is now being used in more and more Australian homes.

  bamboo floor   Solid Bamboo Floors    

Bamboo floors comes in both solid and laminated sections, but Southern Timber Floors only use the solid option.

Strand woven bamboo flooring is a natural product derived directly from the stem of the plant, which grows wild in the mountainous regions of China and is avidly eaten by Panda Bears.

Bamboo is an environmentally friendly, rapidly renewable resource that is self- regenerating and grows to maturity in 5 years. Processed bamboo has a tensile strength superior to cold rolled steel and is regarded as the strongest growing plant on earth.

Our bamboo flooring comes in 3 naturally occurring colours - Natural, Coffee and Suede and 6 stained colours - Antique, Flint, Gunstock, Sienna, Saddle and Autumn that greatly enhance design options. The colours draw their inspiration from traditional hardwood species.

Bamboo has a Janka hardness rating of around 15 compared to Grey Iron Bark, which is 14 and Jarrah which is 8.5. The product is factory finished with 6 scratch resistant UV coatings. Being pre-finished, it is installed at the end of the project prior to carpet.

Bamboo comes in 2 sizes - 96mm wide x 12mm thick x 1830mm long and 130mm wide x 12mm thick x 1830mm long. The 2 products are installed differently (see Installation for more info).

  engineered floating flooring   Engineered Floating Flooring    

Although Southern Timber Floors are a solid wood floor specialist we offer a range of pre-finished floating floors for consumers who want to avoid the disruption of sanding and polishing or want to install themselves.

Our range of pre-finished floating floors are constructed from 3 layers of cross laminated hardwood with a 3.5mm thick top timber layer in species such as Jarrah, Spotted Gum, Sydney Blue Gum and Tasmanian Oak. The middle and bottom layers are from plantation grown timbers. The 3 layers are laminated together producing a stable and durable product.

There are 3 different styles all with a length of 1820mm and a thickness of 14.5mm.
1 strip - wide board look - 127mm x 145mm wide panels.
2 strip - strip floor look - 170mm x 180mm wide panels.
3 strip - parquetry look - 190mm wide.

We can install a floating floor for you but experienced handymen have great success installing themselves - DIY instructions are available.


  Laminate Flooring        

As a service to our consumers, we offer a range of German made laminate flooring and quality underlay on a supply only basis. A laminate floor gives the appearance of a timber floor without the price tag and is ideal for homes when you are on a tight budget and for investors’ rental properties. Laminate flooring offers a wide range of colours and designs are not restricted by what nature cannot produce.

The product we supply is durable and gives resistance to scuffs, stains, scratches and burns. Laminated floors are made from ecologically sound and renewable sources but unlike a timber floor cannot be re sanded and polished.

The product is 1200mm long, 191mm wide and 8mm thick and is very easily installed by a handyman - DIY instructions are available.
