European Beech

All Pollmeier hardwood flooring products are crafted from specially selected European beech wood – majestic, rich in character and harder than either red oak, birch or cherry*. We only use the finest cuts of wood from mature European beech trees that range in age from 80 and 200 years. Our steaming process adds a subtle salmon tone to the wood and eliminates all moisture pockets giving us a more uniform product for a flawless installation.

* The Janka hardness test measures the force required to push a steel ball with a diameter of 11.28 millimeters (0.444 inches) into wood to a depth of half the ball's diameter. It is the standard test for determining a wood’s suitability for flooring. European beech has a hardness rating of 1,450.
