13MM SOLID STRIP FLOORING BY BORAL
Boral 13mm Solid Strip Flooring Timber Flooring
Boral 13mm is designed to be glued down directly over concrete, existing timber, plywood or particleboard flooring, as long as the old floor is clean, dry and flat. It has been designed for those who love the style and warmth of a solid timber floor, but don’t have the traditional bearers and joists subfloor structure.
Features & Benefits
Ideal for installing in ground floor renovations over a concrete slab or second storey refurbishments where carpet has been removed and subfloor is still in place
Boral 13mm flooring still offers the same depth of wear (top layer thickness) as traditional 19mm flooring. This allows for a number of refinishes over the lifetime of the floor.
Solid hardwood floors are excellent for asthmatics as they do not harbour dust mites or other allergens
A timber sub-floor gives easy access to the underfloor for plumbing or ducted heating, or to repair wiring
Timber is one of the world’s few truly renewable resources
Building a sustainable future - Boral Timber hardwoods have full Chain of Custody certification aligned with the Australian Forestry Standard (AFS).
Precision milled to 13mm thick, Boral 13mm solid strip flooring is thinner than 19mm traditional solid strip flooring but the top layer is the same thickness. Because Boral 13mm is laid directly over a structural surface such as concrete or plywood, it is well supported and the additional 6mm in thickness is not required.
Boral 13mm solid strip flooring should be glued onto a concrete slab or directly onto Boral plywood or particleboard. Boral Timber Flooring recommends that an experienced professional timber flooring contractor handles the installation as well as the sanding and finishing of a new hardwood timber floor. Timber flooring is not recommended for bathrooms, laundries or other wet areas
For further information on installation see the Boral Timber Flooring and Decking Installation Guide.
Underlays provide floor levelling, cushioning and acoustic properties. Boral Timber Flooring has a variety of quality underlays, such as Boral RV-4 Acoustic Underlay that can be installed with a solid timber floor to provide a range of quality flooring solutions. See the Boral Underlay brochure for more information.
Boral 13mm solid strip flooring is available in two grades. Boral Timber Flooring meets Australian Standards and uses the aesthetic Boral Timber grading system. Grading is distinguished by selective gum veins, spirals, burls, insect trails and other natural features that give timber floors a unique character, as individual as a signature. Boral Timber Flooring is not graded for colour variation or grain patterns as they form part of the natural beauty of timber flooring.
Australiana Grade is carefully graded to include the most interesting and moderate natural features to enhance the look of a timber floor.
Classic Grade is a subtle feature grade of timber flooring that provides a limited level of natural features. The lower levels of natural feature present the floor with a uniform look that is best suited to modern, minimalist styles.
