Everfloor Wirebrushed Hardwood offers a premium selection of engineered timbers in the two most popular species – Blackbutt and Spotted Gum. They come in an Australiana grade, mixing select and rustic planks for the perfect combination of natural features to capture the beauty of Australian hardwoods.
Differentiated by the 12 layers of UV-cured polyurethane lacquer, they offer greater durability compared to alternative engineered floors. Furthermore, the 3mm veneer thickness allows two cycles of sanding and polishing which extends the lifetime of these gorgeous timber selections.
Timber flooring with a wirebrushed finish is created when a rotary steel wire brush is used to brush the surface of the wood’s lacquer. This gives it a distressed and rustic look, helping the floors look more “antique” and “classic”. The oil used often has a matte type of finish so the floor is less reflective and more textured.
Wirebrushed timber flooring looks more rustic and can give any interior a more “traditional” and “authentic” wood look. Wirebrushed surfaces are also less reflective, meaning they are better at hiding scratches and damages that may be accumulated by hardwood floors over time. They also hide scratches in the brushes of the surfaces. Furthermore, wirebrushed surfaces are often more slip-resistant as they have a textured surface, compared to their semi-gloss or gloss counterparts.
Wirebrushed timber floors are slightly more difficult to clean beause the textured surface is more likely to trap dirt and sand. It may also be less desireable to sand and polish the floor, as you will lose the wirebrushed surface and its difficult to replicate on-site. However, wirebrushed floors are designed to look rough and scratches will only add to it’s style.
