Hurford Hardwood has developed “Fourteen” for people who love the look of wide hardwood boards but don’t want the traditional top-nail appearance in their floor. Fourteen has been fully designed and tested with the support of the “Australian Timber Flooring Association” for optimal performance as a floor covering. Fourteen’s unique attributes have been designed to work in harmony with the fixing methods and the subfloor to ensure a balanced stable floor is achieved. Fourteen has been specifically designed for secret fixing to plywood or particleboard using adhesive and concealed mechanical fixings. Fourteen has been pre straightened using a proprietary method which Hurfords have developed and enables clean straight lines to be achieved when the flooring is installed, as well as assisting in a faster installation process
