AVILA Special Rift White Oak
As luxury custom flooring manufacturers, we have continually faced the challenge of procuring high quality rift sawn flooring over 5” wide for our clients. We searched for many years to find just the right logs and just the right sawmill to custom cut the finest rift sawn lumber. Many suppliers shrugged their shoulders and said it could not be done. But we carried on, and finally found our sources to produce Virtu Special Rift.
The elegance of Virtu Special Rift lies in its uniformity of color and linearity of grain. Rift sawn is a naturally more stable cut with less movement than the more commonly used flat cut white oak. And rift cut wood is less susceptible to checking and gapping. Marrying the unique beauty of Special Rift with natural stability of rift cut lumber makes for a uniquely beautiful floor that will maintain its appearance year in and year out.
Engineered to the same exacting standards of our 2-layer flooring, Special Rift can be manufactured in widths from 5” up to 9″ and in lengths 4’ up to 10’. It can also be provided as 100% FSC certified, qualifying for LEED points in several categories.
We have manufactured hundreds of thousands of feet of beautiful rift white oak flooring and we can honestly say this is the most impressive rift cut flooring we have ever seen.
Avila is setting another benchmark with Avila Special Rift. Unparalleled beauty, quality and custom made in the USA.
