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.
Grades: Select grade shows more variation in the natural colouring and grain of the wood, and allows for small character markings, pin knots and mineral streaks. This grade is most often the preferred choice for builders. Some stains, checks and splits are allowed in the Select grade.
