The Chateau Collection antique hard-wax oiled floors are manufactured to reminisce the styles found in Europe centuries ago. The Chateau Collection recreates the same time worn look that showcases the natural character and longevity of a hardwood floor with natural changing grain patterns that exemplify vintage artistic design. The free forming elements of natural wood are what give The Chateau Collection floors it’s wonderfully worn character and exceptional beauty. The wood has straight, long grains from trees cut from large stands, and it’s texture is course and characterized by large open pores. It is wood that is harvested in the northeastern areas of the species distribution zone which is denser and tougher while the wood taken from the central regions tend to be straighter and more uniform. The Chateau Collection styles include: Antique white, Kasteel, Lyon, Montserrat, Natural, Old Dutch, St. Moritz, White Oiled, Windsor, and Yves, each has it’s own distinctive look so be sure to take a look at each one to find the style that suits your lifestyle.
“DuChateau hardwood flooring brings together old-world craft and traditions with modern technology. Bringing an innovative design product to the market that marries nature with fashion and architecture.”
Each of the styles has its own particular color range in the DuChateau Heritage Timber Edition. For instance, Lintel is a light-colored floor while Coal is a richer, coffee toned flooring. All of the Heritage Timber Edition floors have the same basic construction of a European Oak species hardwood floor. Like all DuChateau floors, it is an engineered floor and uses a Hard-Wax Oil for the surface instead of a
chemical polyurethane finish. The Lintel has a Janka rating of 1360. The Janka hardness test measures the resistance of a sample of wood to denting and wear. It measures the force required to embed an 11.28 mm (.444 in) steel ball into wood to half the ball’s diameter. This method leaves an indentation. A common use of Janka hardness ratings is to determine whether a species is suitable for use as flooring.
Lintel, and the other floors in the Heritage Timber Collection is suitable to use with radiant heating and can be installed with a variety of methods ranging from nail-down to floating floor. The engineered wood for Lintel is straight, long grain from trees cut from large stands. The wood’s texture is coarse and characterized by open pores. Wood harvested from the northeastern areas of the species’ distribution zone tends to be denser and tougher while wood from the central regions tends to be straighter and more uniform.
Engineered floors use the same wear layer as solid hardwood flooring and wood from a different species for the substrate, helping to conserve important natural resources, using a quarter of the trees of solid hardwood and incorporating other species that are easily
renewable. As a major proponent of sustainability, DuChateau is committed to the environment and ensuring its future.
