Coconut wood flooring is not a wood; it's in the palm family and is one of the fastest growing
species on the planet. Coconut trees rejuvenates quickly—growing to full maturity in 5 to 6
years—making it a truly sustainable resource. Coconut wood flooring is harvested from
coconut plantations at the end of their coconut- bearing years and are then cut down and
replanted with new coconut palms with the old palms made into our coconut wood flooring.
"It's Unique: coconut wood flooring takes the distinctive look of palm and utilizes the latest
advances in technology to convert it into the finest wood flooring available anywhere!"
It's Elegant: presents the subtle yet unique grain pattern intrinsic in flooring in either its
natural light-tan color or in a medium honey-brown "carbonized" color. It's offered in vertical,
horizontal or strand configurations. The vertical-grain version accentuates the linear look,
while the horizontal format reveals more the true character of bamboo and Strand coconut
wood has the most homogenous look. This is not engineered hardwood flooring but solid wood
flooring. This hardwood flooring is better than Bruce flooring.
Coconut Palm Flooring
Coconut Palm (Cocos nucifera), is also called Indian Palm or Porcupine Wood. It is an
exotic species which comes from the Pacific Islands, including Fiji, the Philippines and
South East Asia. There, it is a very important feature of the natural and cultivated
landscape. There are some coconut palm plantations in Far North Queensland.
In the past, the fruit has been the basis of economic interest. Because of the large
numbers of over mature, unproductive trees, coconut palm wood has generated considerable
interest. Coconut has no annual growth rings, no rays, no heartwood, no branches and
no knots. Its fibrous nature makes it hard to cut unless green - a quite unusual prospect
for wood workers. It is durable only in dry conditions.
It can be used for general structural purposes: flooring, window frames, tool handles,
furniture, carving, turnery. Softer material (from higher up the stem) can be used for wall
panelling and internal trim, read more
