Select grade is valued for its versatility and simplicity. It has a clean and uniform appearance, perfect for modern, minimalist and traditional settings.
The rustic oak grade contains knots, pith ray, some sapwood and color variation enhancing the wood character of a herringbone pattern. The purpose of rustic grade flooring is to create a floor where character and contrasting appearance is desired. The rustic and random nature of rustic grade oak is perfect for those who prefer a more organic appearance.
Antique grade oak is a hand scraped rustic grade oak with minor cracks, defects and extra knots to create a flooring with old wood character.
The amount of waste varies with the pattern. The more elaborate patterns creates more waste.

When you choose an oak plank floor, you can base your choice on a mix of look, feel and design. You want that genuine, natural look that only oak can give you. The floorboards should be wide. In fact, the wider the better. Our floorboards are extra wide – from 223 mm to 283 mm. The wood provides the room with a warm feeling of comfort, and the click locking system makes the floor easy to install. The brushed finish of the extra wide plank brings the natural vibrancy of wood to the surface. This oiled oak plank is engineered to support an extra wide board with a selection of oak grades: Select, Rustic and Antique. Rustic Oak The rustic oak grade contains knots, pith ray, some sapwood and color variation enhancing the wood character of the plank and adds a distinctive rustic or vintage character to a room. Antique Oak Antique grade contains larger knots, pith ray and sapwood and allows strong color variation. The parquet has an antique look with mesh sides. Filled and plastered cracks in the oak top layer gives the floor both charm and character. Select Oak Select grade oak is highest grade of oak we provide. It has less color variations and low knot content which provides a clean and uniform look. The surface of the plank has been made harder and easier to maintain by applying the top layer of oak using a patented curing method under high pressure and heat.
Wide planks in hardened oak are a durable and low maintenance alternative to traditional flooring. Flooring with cured wood surface leaves you with less worries. No more indents from high heels, toys or dropped objects, and no more scratches from running pets. With outstanding impact and wear resistance, these easily installed floors are suitable for virtually any room in a home or commercial area. With that said, you still experience a warm wooden floor to walk on, barefoot or with shoes on. You could feel the naked grain by touching the top of the surface and you don’t have to worry about humidity, scratches or marks. By curing the wood it is exposed to reveal the true structure and feeling without compromising it's durability. No need to cover the wood with thick layers of varnish or lacquer. The curing process shields the oak from staining, but a thin layer of hard wax oil is added to make the flooring easier to maintain and clean. The hardwax oil applied on this product range is offered with a selection of pigments. From no pigment to white, grey and black. If you would like to increase the glossiness of the floor, it’s possible to add layers of oil or hard wax oil after the installation.
In addition to its technological advantages, cured wood is also a sustainable way to bring real wood interior decoration into our homes. By using thin wood sheets instead of thicker wood layers, a considerably larger amount of products can be produced from every cubic meter of wood. Bjelin also reuses the sawing dust as filler and as raw material for the WoodFiber products. This, in combination with Bjelin's carefully managed source of wood, makes us proud to present these hard oak wood floorings as a great alternative on the market with our new concept of sustainability.
