New from Junckers – Driftwood Grey Oak solid wood collection

In association with

Junckers has launched a new collection of floors called Driftwood Grey, available on their full range of solid Oak floors; wide board planks, two-strip and Textured Oak floors. The new finish adds a distinctive, ‘worn’ look to the floor, creating the patina of a rustic, aged wooden floor without compromising on any of the benefits of a Junckers solid hardwood floor.

Junckers first developed Driftwood Grey Oil as a site finish product but it proved so successful it has now been incorporated into the main range. These new floors are delivered pre-finished, with the Driftwood Grey stain sealed with Junckers UltraMatt lacquer applied before the floor leaves the factory, achieving a perfect finish. A pre-finished floor also means the floor can be used and walked on as soon as it is installed.

Solid hardwood flooring, in addition to its natural beauty, offers a wide range of features, such as strength, durability and always feels warm and pleasant to walk on. A Junckers solid hardwood floor contributes to a healthy indoor climate without static electricity or degassing. Contrary to a commonly held belief, a pre-finished, solid hardwood floor is naturally stable and therefore works perfectly over underfloor heating, both electric or water based. As an economical as well as comfortable heating solution, underfloor heating is rapidly becoming popular. With a consistently low moisture content and unique drying process and quality control, Junckers floors are ideal for use with underfloor heating and guarantee their floors for use with UFH.
