Tasmanian Oak took centre stage at the Australasian Timber Flooring Association (ATFA) Awards for excellence last week taking out three awards including Overall Winner Floor of the Year.
“It’s exciting to see Tasmanian Oak recognised at the highest level as a flooring timber. Tasmanian Oak is beautiful, durable and incredibly stable, which makes it an ideal flooring timber,” said Tasmanian Timber Chairman Shawn Britton.
Tasmanian Oak flooring is widely available in a variety of widths and products, including engineered flooring, solid and overlay, from distributors across the country. Tasmanian Oak flooring is available in two aesthetic grades, Prime and Classic, with varying levels of feature.
“There has been some concern in the marketplace that Tasmanian Oak volumes may have dropped since the Tasmanian bushfires earlier in the year, but that’s not the case,” says Program Chairman Shawn Britton.
“Tasmanian Oak is available in the same quantities as pre-fire levels and will continue to be. Those wanting to specify a Tasmanian Oak floor are encouraged to do so.”
ATFA is the peak association for the timber flooring industry including flooring installers, sanders and finishers, manufacturers, suppliers and retailers.
The awards were entered by Tasmanian Timber campaign contributor Hydrowood for the Lewisham Pod floor made from Reclaimed Tasmanian Oak that was recently showcased on Grand Designs Australia.
Beautiful, Durable and Incredibly Stable
Tasmanian Oak is readily available from the following certified Tasmanian Oak suppliers: Britton Timbers, McKay Timbers, Neville Smith Forests Products, Hydrowood, Porta, Oakdale Timber and Heritage Furniture Tasmania.
