National floor show debut for Lathams

The UK’s leading timber distributor James Latham will be making its debut appearance at this year’s National Floor Show at Harrogate International Centre (4-6 September).

The exhibition, which brings together retailers, flooring contractors, interior designers and architects, showcases the latest in flooring products, from hardwood floors to accessories and tools. Lathams will be exhibiting its Bausen range of hardwood flooring, which is fast becoming the market leading brand in this quality sector. The flooring is offered in a range of finishes: lacquered, brushed and oiled and an increasingly popular super matt lacquer. Species available include white oak, cherry, maple, birch and walnut, plus a ‘distressed’ range of hand scraped golden, dark and bronze oak, to suit all sorts of construction or interior design projects for the domestic and commercial markets.

Lathams will also be exhibiting Thermo-fumed light and dark oak with oil finish, which is aimed at commercial pubs and clubs. This treatment is environmentally friendly and means the oak is fume coloured throughout the timber. The process creates a durable oak floor with a colour similar to fashionable walnut.

The Bausen range also includes Engineered One Strip Plank, available in a variety of species, while the Manor Oak range of solid flooring is FSC. Whenever possible, high quality third party certified products are added to the range to meet the demands of its customers.

Part of the Bausen range has recently obtained the Q Mark assurance of quality, the first producer in the world to achieve this, which is a third party certification scheme operated by BM TRADA Certification Ltd.

Richard Pickles, hardwood flooring manager at Lathams, commented: “We’ve exhibited Bausen a few times this year already with great success, but this is the first one that is dedicated to flooring so we are looking forward to showcasing the range to a new audience at the National Floor Show.”
