Victorian Ash Timber Flooring Sydney
Victorian Ash is the collective name for Mountain Ash (eucalyptus regnans) and Alpine Ash (eucalyptus delegatensis). Grown in south eastern Victoria, predominantly along the Great Dividing Range, these virtually identical hardwoods are renowned for their exceptional height and straightness.
Victorian Ash is sought after for appearance grade applications such as furniture, flooring, staircases, mouldings, window frames and doors. It is also valuable in structural use for frames, trusses and laminated beams.
Victorian Ash ranges in colour from a highly attractive pale blonde through to nutty brown tones. Natural features, such as gum vein, add decorative appeal to this species, telling the tale of the tree’s previous life in the natural elements.
A range of different finishes can be used to bring out the unique appeal of a Victorian Ash floor, including water or plant based finishes and traditional polyurethane, acrylics or tung oil. A highly appealing hardwood species for flooring, Victorian Ash can also be used to manufacture the flooring joists and substrate.
Victorian Ash’s botanical name is eucalyptus regnans, delegatensis. eucalyptus regnans and eucalyptus delegatensis have Janka ratings of 4.9 and 5.7 respectively.
