QLD Silver Ash

The Queensland Silver Ash heartwood ranges from silver-white to pale yellow shades. There is no noticeable colour difference between sapwood and heartwood. The grain is open and predominantly straight. Slight grain deviation may occur associated with bumps on the log surface. There is no pronounced figure, but a characteristic of the species is its long straight vessel lines on longitudinal surfaces.

Grade Descriptions

  • Select Grade: The features that are present in Select Grade flooring are relatively small and few in number, and although they are visible the features do not dominate the appearance of the floor.
  • Standard Grade (Medium Feature): Flooring in this grade will be moderately featured. Gum veins, gum pockets, insect trails, burls and borer holes are some of the characteristics that will be more prevalent in Standard Grade.
  • Feature Grade (High Feature): Feature grade flooring is heavily peppered with natural features, particularly large gum veins.
  • Rustic Grade: A full featured floor to provide an old world charm. It may contain features that are more prominent than Feature Grade but with the structural integrity of a Feature Grade floor.
