The Janka rating is the hardness level given to each species. The higher the number, the greater the hardness.

The natural colour variation within a timber species is normal and one of its most appealing attributes.

It is recommended that large samples of the species be viewed in a timber flooring showroom when deciding on the species for a new timber floor.
