Oak

We take pride in producing wooden floor planks that respect and preserve the personality of the oak tree. Oak trees are always an impressive sight in nature. They have more personality than any other wood species, and their vitality is unparalleled.

Dinesen HeartOak

The gravity of a hundred years of growth is evident in Dinesen HeartOak. The planks come from the core of the trunk and reflect the full vitality and strength of the oak tree. In HeartOak we use as much of the large trees as possible to produce oak planks in extraordinary dimensions and allow nature to unfold in all its beauty. Natural cracks are preserved and locked with elegant butterfly joints of oak, which lends the planks a unique and powerful expression. HeartOak planks are available in extraordinary dimensions – up to 6 metres long.

Wide planks have a special expression and represent the very best that the forest and we have to offer. Although we source the largest and finest trees from the forest, few planks have what it takes to become Dinesen GrandOak. With widths of 35 to 50 centimetres, GrandOak planks are exceptionally wide. Equally remarkable are the scarcity of knots and the calm structure of the wood. Together, these features produce a stately, stylish and highly exclusive expression. GrandOak planks are available in lengths up to 5 metres.

Depending on our stock of raw wood and the requested delivery time, several varieties are available in full lengths. Depending on the requested type of flooring, the planks are available in lengths from 1 to 6 metres, widths from 13.5 to 50 centimetres and a thickness of 22 or 30 millimetres.

Each plank is made as long as possible.

Finishes

Dinesen planks are delivered unfinished, which lets  you choose the finish that is right for your project and your expectations of the floor. This also lets you add your personal touch to the colouring of the floor, as the same floor will look very differently if it is finished with either dark or white oil, for example. Contact us for more specific advice.
Finishes

Oil

An oil-finished floor has a beautiful, warm and rich expression. The floor should simply be washed with floor soap as needed, as the oil finish seals the surface. In case of especially heavy wear, partial sections may be re-finished with oil as needed. The entire floor should be regularly refinished with a new coat of oil to maintain the seal. An oil finish makes it possible to choose between a variety of colours. Please note that the floor needs to be sanded and refinished if you wish to change the colour tone. We offer a choice of natural, light and white oil.
Oil

Lacquer

A floor with a lacquer finish has an elegant, uniform expression and reflects light beautifully. Lacquer provides a very durable surface and is a good choice in restaurants, e.g., where the floor is subject to heavy traffic. The floor should simply be washed with floor soap as needed, as the lacquer seals the surface. Please note, however, that if the lacquer is penetrated the area should be repaired immediately to prevent damage to the floor. The floor will occasionally need a new coat of lacquer. Scratches and dents will be permanent until the floor is sanded and refinished with lacquer again.
