big night of awards for hydrowood

Hydrowood Oak took centre stage at the Australasian Timber Flooring Association (ATFA) Awards for excellence last week taking out three awards including Overall Winner Floor of the Year. 

The award was won for the Lewisham Pod floor that was recently showcased on Grand Designs Australia. In addition to the top award of the night, Hydrowood won Recycled Solid Timber Floor of the Year and Avant Garde of the Year for the Lewisham Pod Tasmanian Oak couch designed and made by Simon Ancher Studio. 

Hydrowood is unlike any other recycled timber, because it is reclaimed from the depths of a hydroelectric dam. The forest beneath lake Pieman was submerged over 50 years ago, and the timber has laid dormant beneath the depths, preserved. It is now being repurposed as Hydrowood, with an incredible story of provenance embodied in the timber. 

ATFA is the peak association for the timber flooring industry including flooring installers, sanders and finishers, manufacturers, suppliers and retailers

 
Tasmanian Oak has the most incredible torsion. It’s ability to stay straight is unmatched. I have never come across a timber that has the stability that Tasmanian Oak possesses
— Jon Goulder, Designer-Maker

“It’s exciting to see Hydrowood Tasmanian Oak recognised at the highest level as a flooring timber. Tasmanian Oak is beautiful, durable and incredibly stable, which makes it an ideal flooring timber,” said Hydrowood Director Andrew Morgan.

“It was an honour for Hydrowood to receive these awards amongst very tough competition.” 

While hardness is often used as the key benchmark for flooring through the JANKA rating, stability, which is equally if not more important, is often overlooked. 

Hydrowood flooring is available for order in Oak and Myrtle in both 19mm solid and 13mm overlay profiles in 85, 108 and 133mm widths. Other profiles are available upon request - email sales@hydrowood.com.au to find out more.
