Thermally Enhanced Blue Gum Sizes and Specifications
Thermally Enhanced Blue Gum
With the knowledge and skill acquired from ten years of thermally modifying Australian Hardwood, Hurfords has now developed a process known as Thermally Enhanced Hardwood. This process uses a unique temperature schedule through the drying process to create a colour palette that reflects the more traditional tones in the species, altering the blush lightness of Sydney Blue Gum to a more timeless deep scarlet intensity. Another advantage of Thermally Enhanced Hardwood is the transformation of the traditional lighter sapwood to a more natural and attractive warm undertone.
- 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.
