Grades

Find your own style

The gradings of Timberwise floors tell about the quantity of knots and grain pattern. The rule of thumb is that the Select grades are of carefully selected, almost knot-free timber, whereas the Rustic grade allows knots, unevenness and fillings. Naturally, there are differences specific to wood species, meaning that the grades of different wood species are not necessarily comparable to each other. Our diverse selection ensures something for everyone, suiting every specific need and purpose.

Oak Select

The Select grade is carefully selected, evencolored and almost knot-free. The grade allows filled pin knots, mirror pattern natural for oak i.e. the pattern caused by the wood’s primary rays and color variation caused by the grain pattern.

Oak Classic

The Classic grade is a natural-looking range in which the wood’s natural grain pattern, color variation and small individual dark knots are clearly visible. The Classic grade allows the natural knots in wood, where the size and quantity of knots is small. Small groups of knots, the so called cat’s paws, are also allowed in the classic grade, as are filled knots.

Oak Rustic

According to its name, rustic is a rough knotty grade. Strong variation in color and an unlimited number of both small and large knots are characteristic of Rustic. Slight oxidation and small dents in knot fillings are allowed.

Oak Vintage

The Oak Vintage grade is similar to the Rustic grade, but it also allows large filled knots and cracks. A grade with an old and authentic appearance, comes in several different shades. The Vintage grade is only made for the Vintage Collection shades.
