HØRNING Castle plank is an extraordinarily strong, slat-constructed special flooring made of carefully selected materials. Castle planks come in ash, Douglas fir, oak and smoked oak, untreated, oiled or varnished, and with a 3.5- or 5.5-mm wear layer on a core of multiple layers of solid plywood in the finest birch. Waterproof plywood is available on request. Castle planks are 15 or 20 mm thick and 130-300 mm wide, and lengths are staggered up to 2400 mm. Castle planks come with tongue and groove on 4 sides and are generally polished and untreated. Further treatment such as varnishing, oiling, brushing and smoking are available on request. Castle planks come with sharp edges or with micro bevel in the longitudinal direction or in both the longitudinal direction and at the ends.

HØRNING Castle plank comes in several gradings, which vary according to type of wood and dimension. Castle planks are made of fresh wood tailored to the dimensions of the plank floors. On the whole, large dimensions will include the most variations, knots, fillings etc.
Wood is a wonderful natural material, so variation vis-à-vis descriptions and photos will always occur. Any samples show only dimension and texture and cannot show the grading. Variations will certainly occur between small samples and actual deliveries.
A consistently very uniform interplay of colour and the wood’s texture. Growth-related variations occur. A very few small, healthy knots may occur. A minimum of whirls, small scratches and cross grain and brown core may occur. Another aspect of this grading is that the wider and longer the planks, the greater the occurrence of larger variations, knots etc.
Vibrant appearance with natural interplay of colours and the wood’s texture (natural growth rings acceptable). Small, healthy knots acceptable. Scratches in the surface occur rarely. Open knots and large cracks are filled. Mirroring, whirls, insignificant open scratches, insignificant chips or brown core, cross grains and silicon stains may occur, depending on the type of tree. In principal, free of dead knots, chips, ingrown bark, pith etc.
Consists of equal parts Living and Country gradings – see them.
Very vibrant appearance with all the natural colour variations and textures. Healthy knots are acceptable.Black knots up to approx. 30 mm. Chips acceptable up to approx. 20% of the width. Knots, chips, brown core are acceptable. Filling of knots and cracks occur. Open knots, cracks and fillings may occur.
