Viridian Debuts Two Oak Flooring Products from Shipping Pallets and Crates
Viridian Reclaimed Wood introduced a new line of reclaimed red oak, white oak and rustic oak solid-plank hardwood flooring. Like Viridianâ€™s other flooring lines, the oak is derived from industrial shipping crates. These domestic hardwoods are reclaimed from the southeastern US and are milled in Portland, according to the company.
The American Classics line is a sustainable option with “a hint of character to let you know it’s reclaimed,” says Viridian co-owner Joe Mitchoff.
The red and white oak have a classic look, while the rustic option provides a vintage look with saw marks, nail holes and gray patina “that calls to mind aged barns dotting the American landscape,â€ť Mitchoff says.
All of Viridianâ€™s oak flooring options are three-quarters of an inch thick and four-and-a-half inches wide, in random lengths of three to eight feet.
Viridian says its hardwood flooring products can contribute points toward the US Green Building Councilâ€™s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Credits: MRc3: (Materials Reuse), MRc4 (Recycled Content), MRc5 (Regional Materials) and MRc7 (Certified Wood).
Viridian Reclaimed Wood manufactures flooring, architectural panels, table/countertops, paneling, decking and beams. The company is headquartered in Portland, Oregon, and was founded with the purpose of upcycling dockside discards (shipping crates, pallets, scrap lumber) into useful reclaimed interior and exterior architectural products.
