Plumb-slate baked through and through engineered oak floor with highlighted oak wood grain.
From our masterpiece range comes this Slate oak floor baked through with a heat-treated plumb-slate finish, the colour of slate with a deep plumb background is impregnated throughout the oak veneer. Baking with modern oven techniques transforms the colour to high-grade oak with slate colour that drenches the pores of the wood, breaching the grain to burnish the hues into the fiery intensity of deep colour. This baking treatment brings out and accentuates the best characteristics of the wood – the colour is an intense slate colour, wth plumb overtones which exist throughout the wood – unlike a stain which finishes the face of the plank. The planks are heat soaked to a high temperature which causes the colour to darken. Only natural baking is used during this process – heat and steam. Then lightly limed to highlight the grain.
