Grades available:

        Saddingtons Timber Flooring meets Australian Standards and uses the aesthetic Timber grading system. Grading is categorized according to selective gum veins, spirals, burls, insect trails and other natural features that give its unique character.  The grading for Saddingtons Timber Flooring is, however, not graded for color variation or grain patterns as they form part of the natural beauty of timber flooring.

The 19mm solid strip flooring is available in three grades:  

  •         Classic Grade – is suitable for minimalists since its subtle feature grade of timber flooring provides a limited level of natural features. The lower levels of natural features present the floor with a uniform look that is best suited to a modern style.
  •         Australiana Grade –  is carefully graded which enhances the look of a timber floor as it includes the most interesting and moderate natural features.
  • Natural Grade – is a rustic grade which highlights timber’s natural features. This grade is good for commercial interiors and traditional decors since it has a unique, aged look with extenuated natural features.
