Flooring Wood Species
Coswick flooring is manufactured from 5 different domestic and tropical wood species. White oak and ash flooring are classic choices that will fit most contemporary interiors. Flooring from American Walnut, Jatoba and Santos Mahogany is distinguished by exotic color tones and make flooring the focal point of any space.
In woodworking and hardwood flooring manufacturing, different wood species are compared to one another using the Janka method. Janka is a test which measures (in pounds) the force required to drive a metal ball (11.28 mm in diameter) into the wood to the depth of ½ the ball’s diameter. The hardness of a given wood species is directly proportional to its Janka value: the higher the value, the higher the wood hardness.
Janka hardness test is calculated as an average between plain sawn and quarter sawn cuts and is meant to inform about structural properties of a given wood species, its resistance and durability.
The table on the right shows how wood species used to manufacture Coswick flooring compare against one another according to Janka scale. More detailed information about each of the wood species is found under the corresponding tabs above.
