Grades

Rivara is available in our different finishes: Relief 3D, Astig, Classic and Elegant.

Structure

We use birch plywood with waterproof glue as base material with a sawn, solid oak layer on top. The connection consists of a traditional tongue and groove system to avoid unpleasant creaking noises of click connections. The edges on the long side are slightly chamfered. For aesthetic reasons, we do not use a bevel on the front side, because this make planks appear shorter, a very unwanted effect.

Finish

Rivara consists of a layer of deeply penetrating, purely vegetable natural oils and a layer of oil seal reinforced with resins, air-dried. You can also refresh the oil seal yourself if necessary. The surface is practically maintenance-free in everyday use, which means that you do not have to constantly re-oil and also do not have to constantly maintain with floor soap to avoid visible soiling. The stain resistance of Rivara is extremely good. Even coffee, cola, wine or kernel oil cannot harm Rivara.

Maintenance

Maintenance consists primarily of vacuuming and mopping. Make sure that you use vacuum cleaner attachments that are suitable for parquet. You can find our cleaning and care instructions → here.

We manufacture color matching skirting boards for you.

Installation

Production

We finish our oak floors in Graz. Raw planks originate from sustainable forestry. More about this under: Environment.
