To create texture, the boards are machine brushed to remove the soft spring wood, exposing the harder summer wood with some appealing knots. This accentuates the grain and figuring, resulting in a beautifully textured surface. Supplied unfinished, you have the option to finish the floor as you wish.
The boards are meticulously planed to produce a perfectly even, smooth surface. Supplied unfinished, you have the option to finish the floor to your specification.
Recommended Oil Finishes
We recommend finishing your unfinished floor with an Osmo Polyx® Hardwax Oil. Doing so will provide long-lasting protection whilst increasing the floor’s durability and stain-repelling properties. Due to the depth of penetration achieved, Osmo Polyx® Hardwax-Oil preserves the character and appearance of the wood and ensures that your floor is easy to clean and requires minimal maintenance. Osmo Polyx® Oil is widely regarded as the highest quality Hardwax-Oil on the market and is available to buy through our shop.

Brushed Maritime Pine Colours
The alternative to hardwax-oil is a lacquer or oil-based system, which in our experience do not protect or enhance the natural beauty of the wood to the same extent as a hardwax-oil. In addition, chipping, scratching and cracking have traditionally caused issue when using these systems; issues which are not easily rectified without recoating the entire floor space. For further information on hardwax oil versus lacquer, and instructions on how to oil and maintain your floor, please go to Technical Support.
