Solid hardwood floors and decks Western Cape | The Finest Hardwood Flooring and Decking

In 1952 a worldwide enquiry was instituted that explored every possible timber to find the most suitable material for making the floors of the London Corn Exchange. It had to be of particular hardness and durability because of the heavy use to which it would be put and the damaging effect of the corn kernels ground underfoot. After much deliberation and a series of stringent tests, a decision was reached to make the floors out of Zambezi Teak. It is quite simply the best material in the world to make floors from.

Solid hardwood floors and decks Western Cape | Timber Source for Zambezi Floor

At Zambezi Floor we pride ourselves in the fact that we are responsible for the preservation of one of Africa's great forests near the resort town of Victoria Falls. Through our community projects and careful management of this resource we guarantee the survival and growth of this wonderful African hardwood forest and that our timber comes from a fully sustainable source. Our policies and practices ensure optimum carbon fixation for this resource and therefore assist in reducing global warming.

There is a massive expanse of ancient sand (the largest expanse of sand in the world) in Central Africa known as the Kalahari Sand Veldt. It covers great areas of Zimbabwe, Botswana, Zambia, Namibia, Angola and the Democratic Republic of Congo. On this sand grows a most beautiful tree referred to as Zambezi Teak, since many of the greatest forests occur along the banks of that famous river. During the early months of the year each tree produces thousands of sprays of exquisite purple flowers.

The timber that makes up your Zambezi Floor is of exceptional density, and therefore far more resistant to damage than other solid wood floors. In addition, if the surface does eventually get worn after many years of use it can simply be sanded down and refinished as the floor starts out 20mm thick and if carefully sanded will not lose more than a millimetre per sanding. Properly looked after a solid wood Zambezi Teak floor will last hundreds of years.

However, there are actions you can take to preserve the finishing coat used to seal your floor.

Placing a doormat either side of an entrance door will help prevent grit being carried in which can damage the surface coat badly. Sweep or hoover as often as necessary to remove loose dirt and dust.
