What is commercial wood flooring?

Solid or engineered, commercial wood flooring is not too dissimilar to the ones installed in residential properties. It can be the perfect solution for a range of commercial properties i.e., museums, gyms, pubs, offices and large public spaces. It is important to note you must base the decision on choosing wood flooring for your commercial property on the property settings. The factors that should be considered are footfall, likely spillages, and what furniture will be put on top of the floor. For example, an office setting would benefit from commercial wood flooring with high footfall carpet would wear down very quickly, spillages would be easier to clean up off wood and can easily move chairs and other pieces of office furniture easily. 

Different types of wood

Oak is the go too wood for solid commercial wood floorings, due to the fact oak offers a variety of width options. However, oak is not the only type of wood that can be used for office wood floorings, Cumaru and Wenge are becoming more popular in recent years. If the commercial space you are looking to floor is in an area of significant humidity / dramatic temperate change and has a high footfall Cumaru or wenge might be more useful.

Cumaru is the more common out of the two, they are both exotic woods and naturally durable however cumaru comes in a broader range of natural colours. You can decide on a reddish/brown colour all the way up to a golden tan colour. A fact to know about cumaru wood after time the flooring will age to a natural silver/grey patina.
