Venture Plank is a quality, high performance, engineered board characterized by a comprehensive spectrum of interesting shades and a smooth finish. It is ideal for most applications.
A two-layered construction comprises of a hardwood surface, which accounts for around 25% or more of the overall depth, backed by a technically superior birch ply which ensures greater stability. It has a traditional tongue and groove profile with a beveled or micro-beveled edge and is milled to exceptional machining standards.
Venture Plank boards range from 13-21mm (1/2"-7/8") thick, and from 180-260mm (7 1/8"-10 1/4") wide and all are suitable for use over under-floor heating. Some products feature the new, ultra-tough Valour oiled finish whilst others are finished with a fourth generation UV cured Hardwax Oil. Both finishes provide exceptional durability whilst maintaining a natural appearance.
The Venture Plank range is sourced from superior European mills. The 19mm (3/4") pre-finished boards feature a 4mm (1/8") wear layer with particularly interesting finishes, especially those which are thermally treated (fired). This ecologically sound treatment process uses no chemical additives to produce a dark timber with the color running throughout the lamella, offering a genuinely viable alternative to tropical hardwoods. Furthermore, the process reduces the moisture content, increasing decay- and water-resistance, and can increase stability by more than 50%.
The 13mm (1/2") and 20mm (3/4") feature a particularly thick lamella (4mm (1/8") on the 13mm (1/2") products and 6mm (1/4") on the 20mm (3/4") products). Those denoted by an asterisk are Cradle to Cradle CertifiedTM Bronze and are also available as FSC® Certified (FSC-C009500) as a special order.
NB Packs will contain mixed length boards and we recommend a further coat on all oiled products (except UV oiled) after installation.
