Our Hand Grade Collection is designed for your most prestigious projects, comprising of enormous boards up to 4m (13 ft) long and almost 1/2 m (1 1/2 ft) wide, with diverse, spectacular finishes. They are Cradle to Cradle (Bronze) and FSC® certified (FSC-C009500).
Hand Grade is a high quality, high performance, pre-finished engineered board of triple layered construction, with a nominal 6mm wear layer of European oak, WBP core and European Oak base, which comes in a choice of two surfaces. One is a 19mm (3 ⁄ 4") thick plank with micro-bevelled edges and a smooth sanded surface; the other is a sculptured, rounded edge board, +/-23mm (+/- 7/8") , with a textured, highly characterful appearance due to natural color variation, undulations, and even visual scarring like natural water markings and those from the drying process. Both surfaces are finished with Hardwax Oil and the entire collection is suitable for use over underfloor heating.
Given their size it is not feasible to judge Hand Grade products on small samples, so these are not available. Instead the full collection can be viewed at all Havwoods’ showrooms, or we can arrange delivery of large samples at a cost of $27 per sample (call 1-844-808-9663). This charge will be refunded against future Hand Grade orders.
All Hand Grade products are available from stocks held in our UK distribution hub.
