The White Ash tree grows rapidly, adapts to almost any conditions and is low maintenance. Ash wears well and bumps and bruises are less noticeable than in other species. There is a strong grain pattern in the Ash and this hides natural imperfections well. There is a lot of natural colour variation from a pale straw colour, to a dark brown, which gives it a livelier appearance than maple.
Featuring a premium wire-brushed technique, Legend Series is characterized by the distinct open grain presentation of the wood. The wire-brushed process enhanced the textural definition of each plank and highlights the natural texture of high-grain species. The natural beauty of knots and character impressions are emphasized and create an aged appearance. The soft sheen camouflages impressions, making this an ideal choice for high traffic environments.
