Wireworks London approached The Solid Wood Flooring Company looking for a modern industrialised Oak to clad onto a winding staircase in a beautiful London home.
Amongst the options the team presented was the CH-E780. This a White Oak with a brushed and band sawn surface giving it a clean yet worn texture. The rustic grade Oak allows for some knotting to appear without it overpowering carefully detailed floorboards.
These boards are finished with a commercial grade UV cured oil that makes it hard wearing and easy to maintain. This particular product has also been fitted throughout the busy, modern offices at 3 Shortlands, Hammersmith. It is easily one of The Solid Wood Flooring Company’s most popular surfaces and finishes.
Wireworks didn’t want a separate stair nose component, instead opting for mitring the length of the boards to a 45-degree angle and jointing them together with a biscuit and high quality PVA glue.
The effect is a stunning cascade of band sawn Oak which looks like it was purpose built in a specialist workshop or factory. This an excellent example of the ingenuity of the team at Wireworks and the adaptability of wood flooring.
