Thermally Enhanced Hardwood

Transforming Australian Hardwoods into Deeper, Richer Hues with Lasting Impact

Building upon a decade of experience in thermally modifying Australian Hardwood, Hurford’s has pioneered a revolutionary process known as Thermally Enhanced Hardwood.

This innovative technique utilises a precisely controlled temperature schedule during the drying process to craft a rich and varied color palette that reflects the traditional tones found in the wood species. By seamlessly blending these tones together, we achieve a more uniform and visually appealing look that enhances the overall aesthetic of the flooring.

One of the significant advantages of Thermally Enhanced Hardwood is its transformative effect on the lighter sapwood. Through this process, the lighter sapwood is imbued with natural, warm undertones, creating a more cohesive and attractive appearance. This not only adds depth and character to the wood but also elevates the entire ambiance of any space where it is installed.
