HARDWOOD CORE

Hevea Brasiliensis commonly known as Rubberwood is a plantation species that yields natural latex during the harvestable lifespan. At approximately 25 to 30 years old the trees have reached an age where natural latex yield is no longer adequate and the trees can now be used as the core for our WildOak.

Three layer engineered floors are much stronger than other types of core construction. WildOak hardwood core produces a heavier product which is ideal for installation and creating a solid feel underfoot when walked on.

WildOak hardwood core’s greatest advantage is its dimensional stability to moisture ingress (moisture up take) delivering a more dimensionally stable floor when it is exposed to greater variations in humidity levels.

Hevea Brasiliensis is a hardwood with similar density and characteristics to Oak. This is the perfect hardwood for WildOak’s core. It is a generally known fact that a Hevea core in 3 layer-engineered floors is stronger than other species used in the market. We take great pride in the fact that the majority of our 3 Layer Engineered Flooring composition encompasses the usage of renewable timber resources. 75% of each plank composition is made up of plantation species and 25% is from precious timber veneers. Therefore, we proudly introduce to you an environmentally safe and beautiful product.
