WHY WILD OAK IS SUPERIOR

WHY WILDOAK IS SUPERIOR

SUPERIOR MANUFACTURE

WildOak is constructed in one of two of the world’s leading, most technologically advanced facilities.
Consistency in incredibly high standards of manufacturing parameters can only be ensured through the use and continued investment in R&D and technology. Leadership and vision come from the top of our organisation and is shared throughout our entire organisational structure including those on the production lines.

french-oak

FRENCH OAK

Only 100% French Oak from managed plantation forests with a chain of custody can provide the prerequisite of high density timber and tannin content to produce such amazing natural, deep colours. You can also be sure that WildOak is legally logged.

good-wood

CORE (GOOD WOOD) Hevea Brasiliensits

The core is literally the backbone of your floor board. Greenpeace Australia rated Good Wood Hevea
is used for our hardwood core – not only is our Hevea sourced from plantations, but the trees are initially used for other products and only felled for WildOak at the end of the 30 year productive cycle. Hevea has superior strength and stability – other products need up to 21mm thickness to achieve the same. If it’s not Hevea you simply won’t have a strong stable floor.

hand-crafted

HAND CRAFTED BOARDS

Each and every single board of WildOak is hand crafted – no two boards will ever be the same. Our skilled artisans use a variety of techniques – hand scraping, tool marking, saw marking, nail marking, wire brushing – to achieve a floor that will be uniquely yours and yours alone. No one will have a floor just like your WildOak.

5gc

5Gc VÄLINGE CLICKING SYSTEM

Välinge 5Gc Click patented locking system is superior to traditional T&G with life-long locking. However, 5Gc can be unclicked for repairs or replacement or even to re-use in another location. Installation time is 40% faster and mess is minimal. No other locking system has the technology and secure lock of the glass fibre reinforced tongue and locking profile. Be sure you get our Välinge 5Gc patented locking system.

gasco

CASCO GLUE

Casco adhesives are world leaders and WildOak uses Casco specifically for its high bond strength and environmental friendliness. Your health is our priority so we use adhesives with proven low VOC emissions and proven high bond strength – keeping your floor together through all of life’s pressures.

klumpp

KLUMPP COATINGS

While WildOak’s colour tones and depths are unequalled, we want to preserve the beauty for years and years. KLUMPP coatings not only enhance WildOak’s natural beauty but give you a tough anti-scratch UV protective coating that is easy to clean. WildOak exclusively uses KLUMPP technology not only for durability and beauty but also for the health of our customers – KLUMPP is free of hazardous materials such as formaldehyde and heavy metals.

proven-result

PROVEN RESULTS

From initial design through to final installation, WildOak undergoes an exhaustive testing regime to give you peace of mind that we have done everything to provide a floor that is strong, durable, environmentally friendly and kind to your health. European, Japanese and Australian Testing Standards are all applied throughout WildOak’s journey from the forest to your floor.

good-to-the-planet

GOOD TO THE PLANET

Beginning with the managed plantation French Oak and then the managed plantation renewable Hevea hardwood core, WildOak’s entire creation is centred around being kind to our home – planet earth. WildOak’s non-hazardous super strong Casco bonding adhesives and beautiful, durable non-hazardous KLUMPP coatings almost complete the environmental story – but thanks to the Patented Välinge 5Gc Locking system you can even re-use or recycle WildOak. No illegal logging or child labour is used and neither are any hazardous chemicals or wasteful manufacture practices tolerated in any part of the WildOak creation process.
