We have an extensive range of solid timber flooring in hard and softwoods. Nothing can beat this natural timber product for look, feel and durability. View the photo gallery to see the timbers we have on display in our showroom and download the flooring availability guide to see what species we can readily source in the different boards width and thickness. Our flooring calculator below will allow you to calculate what quantify of timber your need and the Janka Hardness Rating Guide below will help in your selection of the timber that suits your lifestyle.
The owner, Perry, with his extensive connections in the timber business may be able to source other timbers so send us and email and see how we can transform your new build or renovation.
Download our Excel Spreadsheet, “Square Meter to Lineal Meter Calculator” below or from our download page to work out how much flooring you need or follow the below instructions.
Tip. To calculate how many lineal meters of flooring or decking you need first you must work out the total square meterage required. If you have a simple square space multiply length by width and this gets you the square meters. If it’s a more complex space break it down in to rectangular sections and multiply length and width and then add the total. Once you have this follow the below simple equation.
1000 x (Width of flooring board or decking board allowing your preferred gap between boards in millimeters) = How many lineal meters per square meter. Now multiply this by the square meterage you require and you have your total. For example. Your room is 2 meters wide and 4 meters long and you want to put down 108 mm Tasmanian Oak flooring.
2 x 4 = 8 Square meters
1000 divided by 108 = 9.259 lineal meters per square meters
8 x 9.259 = 74 lineal meters
Note; Allow up to 10% extra for wastage.
Janka Hardness Rating
The Janka hardness test measures the hardness of wood. It involves measuring the force required to embed an 11.28mm (0.444in) steel ball into wood to half its diameter.
This method was chosen so that the result would leave an indention 100mm² (0.16sqin) in size.
It is one of the best measures of the ability of a wood species to withstand denting and wear.
The higher the Janka Rating, the harder the timber is.
