Boral Timber announces the launch of metallon XL, a new engineered flooring collection in Australian hardwood, featuring contemporary finishes, and a wide board format. The metallon XL is the updated version of Boral Timber’s popular metallon engineered flooring collection and offers large format 186mm x 14mm hardwood timber boards in a new range of modern colours for contemporary appeal.

Designed to make a distinctive statement in residential interiors, the new metallon XL boards are inspired by the aesthetics of precious metals, transforming the beauty of traditional Australian hardwoods into the original metallon colours of Copper and Tungsten, as well as three new colours – Aztec White, Sterling and Quicksilver. The metallon XL collection is simple to install, with the click-lock system allowing the boards to easily join for a tight board-to-board finish.

“The metallon XL range has been developed in response to the trends we are seeing in the local flooring market. We understand consumers appreciate the durability and feature of Australian timbers, so we have used these as a base, finished in a choice of light and darker tones for modern room makeovers, renovations and new builds,” observed Boral Timber general manager – sales and distribution, Leon Travis.

Stained engineered boards are a versatile and multi-dimensional timber flooring solution that aligns with evolving Australian architecture and design trends. With a 4mm nominal hardwood top layer, the hardwearing Blackbutt timber can be sanded back for a more natural finish. Alternatively, the board can be re-stained to suit evolving design preferences.

Supplied prefinished for minimal fuss and mess, the engineered timber boards can be laid over a level subfloor, including a concrete slab, particleboard or plywood sheeting or old timber floors, ready to walk on almost immediately.

Boral Timber’s metallon XL is a sustainable engineered timber flooring choice with its Responsible Wood Chain of Custody certification providing peace of mind that the timber has been sourced from sustainably managed and legal forestry.
