Tigerwood Pre-Finished Hardwood Flooring

The species Tigerwood is a dark orange colour with dark brown veins.  This flooring is named after the tiger because of its resemblance to the tiger fur.  We offer Tigerwood in both pre-finished and unfinished formats and in a variety of sizes specified below.



General Characteristics

Tigerwood is heavy and dense wood can be compared domestically to Beech Wood because of its unique appearance; however, Tigerwood is a much more durable and exotic choice.  Tigerwood is nearly 50% harder than Red oak.  (1850on the Janka scale vs. 1290 for Red Oak.)



Main Applications

Hardwood Flooring –Pre-Finished and UnfinishedAt Stonewood we offer consistency.  Your floors will match from job to job and the colour variation will be in an acceptable range.  Our tongue and groove profile will always engage properly and over wood will be minimal.  We encourage you to compare our quality to the current Tigerwood you are using.  Consistency is the key to avoid expensive callbacks.  We dry our Tigerwood to 8-10% and it is milled to NOFMA standards.



Pre-Finished Tigerwood

Pre-finished Tigerwood is a very exotic choice of hardwood flooring.  With the latest in milling and finishing technology, Stonewood is able to offer our pre-finished Tigerwood with micro-beveled edges on all four sides.

Our 7 –step UV finishing system offers the newest aluminum oxide finish with the last two coats being anti-scratch. 

This maximizes the performance of the finish and allows for easy maintenance and excellent recoatability. Within the last decade, the prefinished segment of the hardwood flooring industry grew to 70%.  With significant improvements in the coating technology and the speed of installation, prefinished hardwood has become the preferred application.

Tigerwood is nearly 50% harder than domestic oak and it is a great choice for residential and commercial applications.  We offer pre-finished Tigerwood in Natural.  See below for the sizes of our pre-finished hardwood product.

 

Finish

When finished in Natural there are coats of a clear aluminum oxide and two coats of anti-scratch that accents the true beauty of the Tigerwood.
