Havwoods, a UK-based hardwood flooring company just entering the North American market, has launched the Hand Grade Collection. The planks measure 13 feet long and almost 1 ½ feet wide. Hand Grade is a high quality, high performance, pre-finished engineered board of triple layered construction with a nominal six-millimeter wear layer of European oak, WBP core and European Oak base, which comes in a choice of two surfaces. Both surfaces are finished with hardwax oil, and the entire collection is suitable for use over underfloor heating. Havwoods offers a choice of eight shades for the Hand Grade Collection. Three of these shades offer a contemporary style, while the remainder display the unique characteristics of a time-worn floor. All of the choices are sustainable as the collection has earned FSC and Cradle to Cradle (Bronze) certifications.
