Australian Cypress is the ideal flooring choice wherever a warm, rustic country look is desired. It’s the hardest commercially traded softwood in the world, about as hard as maple. Given its hardness and durability, Cypress offers a pine-like appearance that can stand up to heavy traffic without the dents that softwoods accumulate. This flooring has a smooth surface with a clear finish on a 3mm wear layer. It’s suitable for above and below grade installations and additionally over water-based radiant heat systems. It can be nailed, glued or floated. Natural variations and knots are present in this grade. The finish wear-through warranty is 25 years for residential applications. The structural warranty is lifetime.
