What does ‘grading’ actually mean? 

   

In nature, no one tree is like another, and even within one tree, the wood can look very different. Exactly the same applies to parquet and Lindura wood flooring: As a living piece of nature, no plank is the same as any other; every single one is characterised by its structure, its variety of hues, and its surface treatment and finish, resulting in different styles of floors that significantly shape the overall impression of a room. 

Our Longlife parquet is available in eleven different gradings and opens up a whole variety of options for you to find the most beautiful foundation for your home. Each grading has its own unique characteristics: The ‘harmonious’ grading, for example, is defined by its calm, balanced look, whilst the ‘rustic’ grading has knots and cracks that have been partially filled.


An overview of our four parquet gradings: 

Harmonious
It's all about the natural mix: For the ‘harmonious’ grading, we choose woods with a calm look as well as a balanced and natural variety of hues. They contain a few tightly intergrown knots and brownwood and do not have any sapwood. Occasional, professionally filled cracked knots may appear in the Penta PD 450 collection.

Lively 
In this grading, we deliberately offer surfaces with strong colours and structures, which emphasise the wood's natural character. Healthy knots, sapwood and brownwood are part of the overall lively image. Our oak planks and oak maxi strips do not have any sapwood. Cracked knots are professionally filled. Small cracks that cannot be filled and knots may appear.

Vital 
Real woods with a distinctive variety of hues and structures provide the basis for this grading. Larger knots and occasional cracks enhance the overall lively appearance. There is no sapwood in this grading. Cracked knots and cracks are professionally filled. Small cracks that cannot be filled and knots may appear.

Rustic
In this grading, we deliberately offer surfaces with strong colours and structures, which emphasise the wood's natural character. Larger knots, occasional cracks and sapwood are part of the overall rustic look. Cracked knots and cracks are professionally filled. Small cracks that cannot be filled and knots may appear. 

Lindura wood flooring is available in four different gradings: 

Rustic 
This grading provides a rustic appearance with an interesting variety of hues and structures. Isolated sapwood elements and healthy distinctive knots are not limited in their diameter or frequency. The raw, natural character of the floor is emphasised by larger knots and varying degrees of cracks, which are individually filled using wood powder technology.

Authentic 
This grading creates an authentic look that comes very close to the look of rustic grading. A variety of hues and structures, isolated sapwood elements and healthy knots are not limited in their diameter or frequency and create an authentic and natural look. Cracked knots and cracks are filled using wood powder technology. The deep brushing creates a whole new surface feel and rounds off the natural, authentic overall look.

Lively 
In this grading, we deliberately offer surfaces with strong colours and structures, which emphasise the wood's natural character. Healthy distinctive knots and splints are part of the overall lively image. Like in the ‘natural’ grading, cracked knots and cracks are filled perfectly using wood powder technology.

Natural 
For the ‘natural’ grading, we choose surfaces with a balanced variety of hues. Healthy tightly intergrown knots and occasional cracks are part of the floor’s overall natural look. The wood powder technology ensures perfectly filled cracked knots and cracks.
