THE CHÊNEOAK DIFFERENCE
the story of unrivaled quality and unparalleled luxury
A CUT ABOVE THE REST
why our french oak is so special
French Oak is considered the most finely crafted, luxurious, and hardwearing species of solid flooring. Unlike generic oak our French Oak has a higher tannin content, the benefits include stability and ease of colour application in a variety of finishes. Plus, the oak gets better with age, resulting in improved colour and more pronounced grain patterns over time.
THE IMPORTANCE OF SINGLE ORIGIN OAK
commitment to sustainability and excellence
Simply put, Single Origin means peace of mind. Peace of mind that the Oak you purchase is high-quality, with a great level of consistency. Peace of mind that it is responsibly sourced. And peace of mind that you are receiving the most beautiful product available.
Our Single Origin range of French Oak flooring is exclusive to Chêneoak. What makes them unique? Our French Oak wide planks (220mm wide) are milled from a single piece of oak responsibly sourced from French forests that hold PEFC certification.
importing genuine french quality-controlled oak
Some companies use French Oak as a generic term to claim authenticity. When in actual fact, they’re actually selling European Oak, an inferior timber of unknown origins and questionable quality.
At Chêneoak, your order is carefully selected from over 3,000 cubic meters of curated old growth, Single-Origin French Oak trees.
Our French Oak is air and kiln dried, and tested at our own in-house facilities, to ensure they perform brilliantly in the Australian and New Zealand climate.
ASTHMA & ALLERGY FRIENDLY
Timber flooring is renowned for its hypoallergenic properties. Our French Oak is no exception.
A LABOUR OF LOVE
French Oak is processed and graded under strict guidelines by the NFO (National Forests Office).
Different sections of the log are used for different purposes. For this reason, only the B & C section (middle of the tree) is used to create joinery or flooring.
Our boards are 220mm wide, 20mm thick and up to 2.5m long so you can create a wonderfully elegant, floor.
AIR AND KILN DRIED
for lifelong shape and consistency retention.
QUALITY & SUSTAINABILITY
Our French Oak is subject to the quality and sustainability measures outlined by the NFO and the Pierre family.
The NFO (National Forests Office) inspects the oak every 15 to 20 years. They clear away slow-growing oak so that only the fast-growing, straightest, and healthiest trees prosper, making it a renewable slow-growing resource.
Before the oak is cut down it must be a minimum size of 25 inches. Most oak trees grow approximately 2mm in diameter per year.
Every tree cut down is replaced with at least one new tree
