Characteristics of European Beech Wood Floor Perth

This wood is not a hard wood, with a janka rating of 6.4kn. Mark’s opinion is that it is one of the softest floors he has every sanded. The colour of the timber’s sapwood is hard to distinguish from it’s heartwood, both being a pale yellow/creamy brown. It is commonly found in Europe, with a scientific name of Fagus sylvatica. It has a straight grain profile with a uniform texture. These characteristics mean the timber accepts stain well, enabling you to manipulate the colour to suit your aesthetics.
