As a flooring timber they don’t come much better than this. A beautifully coloured timber that is a warm nut brown colour with tinges of muddy yellowish brown. This Specie is proving to be one of the most popular and attractive flooring timbers around the country. One of the most appealing aspects of this timber is the interesting range of natural characteristics and insect trails that occur as a result of Australia’s harsh climate. The texture of Silvertop timber is medium to fine. The grain is mainly straight but occasionally interlocked and can show gum veins. Silvertop is often peppered with insect markings and gum veins which is a standard characteristic of Eucalypts grown in South-East Australia. These features blend just right with its closed grain allowing designers and home owners to create a stunning natural look, not dissimilar to recycled flooring.
Silvertop grows in southern NSW and Victoria and is kiln dried specifically to match the high demands of flooring. This timber is very hard with an above average Janka hardness rating of 8.5, making it a great choice for flooring and for Cladding and Decking in both residential and commercial applications.
