Strips are solid staves, which are more slender than our classic solid parquet staves. But the durability and degree of finish are still top notch. Unlike parquet staves, they come without tongues and grooves in a pattern on a mesh.

Types of wood
Standard Strips come in ash and oak. Inquire after other types of wood.
Strips come untreated and as standard in the Exquisite, Living and Country gradings.
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. In principal free of knots and chips. A minimum of whirls, small scratches and cross grain, chips and brown core may occur.
Vibrant appearance with natural interplay of colours and texture. In principal, free of open knots, cracks, pith etc. Whirls, healthy knots, small scratches, cross grains and silicon stains occur. Chips or brown core occur, depending on the type of wood.
