A Jarrah hardwood floor feels like a rich red wine in front of an open fire – warm, enveloping, great for a both grand home steeped in history or for a smart, modern look. With its lush rose tones, this timeless, stunning timber is only grown in Western Australia’s South West, and will add an abundance of atmosphere to any home.
And your Jarrah floorboards will remain looking as stunning on day one, as they will forever, with Lifewood’s revolutionary Stabilised Solid technology. Scientifically developed and embodying years of experience with timber milling, a Stabilised Solid board has a patented, engineered core, which stops the boards and floor from cupping or warping due to the reaction of moisture with the natural timber product.
The Stabilised Solid core is secured between a thick layer on top of the best quality and most beautiful looking part of the Jarrah timber, and the base, which is a whole plank of the same uninterrupted timber. Using the same timber type for the whole floorboard creates balance and in harmony within the board, and incredible stability. It is also the most environmentally sustainable flooring practice in the world.
Throughout the boards construction are multiple moisture barriers, with all layers bonded together with emission-safe glue. On the finished product, all six sides of each and every floorboard are coated in an extra moisture barrier.
Your Lifewood Jarrah floor comes with a lifetime guarantee.
Jarrah is a dense timber, making it extremely durable and, very importantly, highly resistant to insect attack, including termites and marine borers. This makes it a favourable timber for outdoor use, and of course, for a beautiful floor in your home. It has good resistance to fire, and is a very hard-wearing so great for high traffic areas. Jarrah is used in fine-looking furniture and joinery, paneling and flooring. In the past, you would find Jarrah making up wharf’s and bridges, and also in many construction areas, to make railway sleepers, poles and piles. In the nineteenth century, it was widely used for rich red cobbles.
Lifewood also offers Jarrah staircases, which are a majestic compliment to Jarrah flooring in any home.
Born and grown only in Western Australia, just like Lifewood, means we can source our Jarrah flooring from mine site clearings, tree salvage operations from storm-blown trees and land clearings, taking our commitment to sustainability to another level.
Choose from satin or semi-gloss finishes that are scratch resistant and hard wearing, and which enhance the beautiful grain and colour of Jarrah without cloudiness or an overly-reflective high gloss.
