Solid Strip Flooring
Boral tongue and groove solid strip flooring is precision-milled, providing a wear layer that can be refinished many times over, providing a lifetime of enjoyment. It is manufactured with a tongue and groove profile that is also end-matched for a tight board-to-board fit.
Boral solid strip flooring has the structural strength to be installed directly onto joists, battens or underply over concrete using secret or top nailing methods.
Boral Timber has produced an installation procedure for secret fixing wide boards, board widths of up to 130mm can be secret nailed into the tongue for a smooth and clean finish. See the Product Installation Guide for further details.
Boral Timber recommends that an experienced professional timber flooring contractor handles the installation as well as the sanding and finishing of a new hardwood timber floor. Ask a local timber flooring retailer for a recommended contractor.
Timber flooring is not recommended for bathrooms, laundries or other wet areas.

Boral 19mm solid strip flooring is available in four 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.
A subtle feature grade of timber flooring that provides a low level of natural features. The low levels of natural feature present the floor with a uniform look that is best suited to modern, minimalist styles.
Graded to include the most interesting and moderate natural features to enhance the look of a timber floor.
