First stained engineered flooring collection featuring Australian species
TO MEET the growing demand for European-inspired stained wood flooring, Boral Timber has launched its metallon™ flooring collection featuring Australian Blackbutt and Spotted Gum species.
As the first to market with a broad engineered flooring offering featuring local timbers applied with contemporary stained finishes, Boral has provided a stunning alternative in a category that until now has been dominated by imported species.
The high quality, easy to install metallon™ boards are inspired by the aesthetics of precious metals, transforming the earthy beauty of Australian hardwoods into the colours of Copper, Tungsten, Pewter, Cobalt (pictured) and Titanium.
“Stained engineered floors are extremely popular and when matched with the natural beauty of Australian species, prove to be a versatile and multi-dimensional timber flooring solution that aligns with evolving Australian architecture and design trends. metallon™ is the next iteration of the highly successful Boral engineered flooring range and will make a truly unique statement in residential interiors,” said Leon Travis, national sales and distribution manager at Boral Timber.
Incorporating the click-lock installation system, the hard-wearing Blackbutt and Spotted Gum boards are pre-finished for minimal fuss and mess, and can be sanded back for a more natural finish or re-stained as design preferences evolve.
metallon™ is the sustainable engineered timber flooring choice. It is Chain of Custody certified by the Australian Forestry Standard*, which has mutual recognition by the world’s largest forest management certifier, the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Scheme. This means the timber is produced using certified, legal and sustainably managed sources. As a building material, timber is a good choice because it is a natural and renewable resource.
Boral Timber has implemented AFS Chain of Custody certification to support responsible and sustainable forest management in Australia. Boral Timber’s Chain of Custody certification meets the Australian Forestry Standard (AFS) AS 4707-2006. AFCS has mutual recognition by the Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Scheme (PEFC) – the world’s largest forest management certifier. All Boral Timber manufacturing sites are Chain of Custody certified, this means all products from these sites are certified and can be traced from processing to distribution and are produced using certified, legal and sustainably managed sources.
