Fourteen developed for people who love the look of wide hardwood boards but don’t want the traditional top-nail appearance in their floor.
Fourteen has been fully designed and tested with the support of the “Australian Timber Flooring Association” for optimal performance as a floor covering. Fourteen’s unique attributes have been designed to work in harmony with the fixing methods and the subfloor to ensure a balanced stable floor is achieved.
Fourteen has been specifically designed for secret fixing to plywood or particleboard using adhesive and concealed mechanical fixings. Fourteen has been pre-straightened using a proprietary method which Hurford’s have developed and enables clean straight lines to be achieved when the flooring is installed, as well as assisting in a faster installation process
Hurford’s have developed unique product specific drying and processing techniques that assure the quality and stability of all Fourteen floors.
Fourteen Secret Nail Wide Board Overlay has been specifically developed and manufactured to provide a wide board flooring product with improved stability. Due to the board being thinner we are able to achieve better drying with a more consistent moisture content through the floor board. With thinner flooring fully trowel glued, the adhesive has a greater ability to hold down the top shoulders minimising cupping and movement.
The Fourteen series is pre-straightened and flattened for ease of installation. With today’s fixing technology a balance between the timber, fixing & subfloor is important and it should not be presumed that thicker boards will be more stable.
Blackbutt is a species that grows in abundance in the coastal forests in New South Wales and southern Queensland.
The common name is derived from the distinctive black, charcoal look that is only on the base of the trunk. The
timber is renowned for both its strength and versatility of application. Blackbutt is a straight grained timber, with a warm nutty hue which will compliment a range of interior designs where a lighter neutral palette is required.
Sydney Blue Gum is a popular species that grows on the New South Wales Coast. A large tree that has a distinctive
bluish tinge to its smooth bark, it is very common in the Sydney and Blue Mountains area, thus the origins of its

The beautiful colour and its strong and hard natural attributes make Sydney Blue Gum sort after for both domestic
and commercial flooring project the world over.
