Original Chateau Planks

Original chateau planks: Premium, unique room-length wood flooring

Original chateau planks are floorboards with especially large dimensions that only nature can create. These traditionally handcrafted floorboards are exceptionally wide and as long as rooms, and they are truly one of a kind. Whether they are made of solid timber or three-layer oak, these magnificent long-timber floors leave nothing to be desired. The majestic chateau planks were originally used in churches and castles. To this day, enthusiastic devotees cherish them in public buildings, offices, houses and exclusive flats.

Three-layer chateau planks

The original chateau planks that feature a three-layer structure are especially popular when floor heating is installed or when customers have little installation height at their disposal. Three-layer chateau planks are also good alternatives to solid timber chateau planks if you have decided to use a type of wood for your surface that is not available in solid timber form. You can obtain original chateau planks with a three-layer structure from us to fulfil requirements like these. This three-layer structure guarantees your floor will be durable and retain its shape, even if it is laid on top of a floor heating system. These boards are completely glued or screwed to the existing or to be created subfloor, depending on the situation.

Our three-layer chateau planks are available in impressive dimensions:

  • Lengths exceeding 10 metres
  • Thicknesses from 16 to 40 mm
  • Top layers of up to 12 mm
  • Falling widths of up to 50 cm
  • Planks with consistent widths upon request

Chateau planks made of solid timber planks

Tradition, massiveness, volume and the sound created by every step – these unmistakable properties unite all solid timber chateau planks. The solid timber floors have stood the test of time for centuries and have proven to be “floors for life”, so there is a good reason why they are highly valued in the field of monument conservation.

One thing that distinguishes solid timber chateau planks is their production. They are manufactured primarily using parallel cuts sawn at falling widths. This process makes it possible to incorporate different plank widths into a given floor. Upon request and after consulting us, you can also obtain solid timber planks with consistent widths.

The planks are laid on top of sleepers or screwed directly on top of the beam structures. This traditional, time-proven manner of laying floors gives them an appealing look. Nowadays it is also possible to glue solid timber planks directly to mineral substrates, such as concrete topping.

What makes our original solid timber chateau planks unique?

You can order our original chateau planks with parallel cutting in very large widths and lengths, whether falling or consistent. The parallel cuts have allowed us to minimise the amount of sapwood. That also saves you from having to twist and turn the planks extensively. The tongues milled into our wooden planks make it possible to secure them in place very quickly.

In particular, customers prize our original chateau planks because of how we manufacture them: We re-finish all the planks ex-factory by hand – a true sign of quality. We repair and fill both natural cracks and cracks caused by drying, as well as any open knots, by hand. As a result, our chateau planks retain their natural and authentic character.

  • Oak

Tradition meets modernity

Once you have seen an original chateau plank, you will understand why we give our planks the attribute “chateau”.  You will feel and recognise why: Each and every chateau plank will show you just how lively the material wood can be. The individual character, special grain and finely tuned nuances make each chateau plank unique and venerable. Nature – not humans – conceives every chateau plank and thus determines its design.

The large-dimensioned wooden planks were highly prized back in the Middle Ages. They were laid in large halls in castles, churches and palaces and spanned the entire length of the rooms. Wide plank flooring became established in country houses as well, owing to its material properties and durability.

This magnificent floor covering’s enthusiasts know to this day that floors made of chateau planks are timeless and match every furnishing style. You can combine these floors with classic, rustic or modern furniture to design rooms and flats according to your own wishes and visions. A noble chateau plank floor perfectly highlights furniture, collector’s pieces, rugs and other treasures.
