If you’re hoping for durable and gorgeous floors, you’ve found them. Our Malted Ale eucalyptus flooring is a shade darker than our natural Tupelo Honey Eucalyptus Flooring, but still retains the beautiful and unique grain style that defines our strand engineered eucalyptus flooring.
Eucalyptus from well-managed farms can be harvested for flooring in under 5 years. This makes it one of the most environmentally friendly hardwoods available in today's market. Our eucalyptus wood flooring is many times harder than traditional hardwoods, so these floors are extremely durable and completely gorgeous.
Please note that while eucalyptus flooring is almost 3 times harder than oak, it is not water-resistant and should not be installed in kitchens or areas where liquid spills may occur.
With Janka hardness ratings up to 5,300, our eucalyptus wood flooring can handle all types of wear and use, plus you get the industry leading lifetime structural and finish warranty. Get a sample today and check it out for yourself!
As a disclaimer, many fans of malts and ales will be disappointed to find that our Malted Ale flooring is NOT made for human consumption. The great news is that our eucalyptus flooring ranks well above toxic emission standards such as EPA TSCA Title VI & CARB Phase II. We wouldn’t recommend taste testing these floors, but you can rest assured that the air in your home is safe!
