Viridian Reclaimed Wood expands line of engineered reclaimed hardwood flooring

doug fir naily-rusticPortland, OR – Viridian Reclaimed Wood today announced the introduction of several new products to its line of engineered reclaimed hardwood flooring, according to Viridian co-owner Joe Mitchoff.

The line extensions include American Classic White Oak, Old Growth Douglas Fir, Fishtail Oak, and the in-demand Rustic Jakarta Market Blend.

“Engineered hardwood flooring is especially hot in commercial interiors,” Mitchoff said. “And we now have local manufacturing partners who can meet our demanding standards, enabling us to expand our line substantially.”

American White Oak, originating from the Northeastern United States, is derived from reclaimed white oak used to ship heavy cargoes via railcar across the country.  It possesses a time-tested traditional look, precision milled with just enough nail holes, knots and other character to indicate it is reclaimed.

Old Growth Douglas-Fir flooring features rich character from its prior life as a structural beam in an old warehouse. It provides an unmistakable vintage look with the performance of a smooth surface, precision-milled to be foot-friendly while remaining true to its industrial origins.

Derived from shipping crates carrying imported railroad track, Viridian’s flagship Jakarta Market Blend comes in long lengths, punctuated by vertical jet-black lines where the tracks sat on the crates.  The company precision-mills the face for tight-fitting installation while retaining the best qualities of the weathered original rustic face.

Viridian’s engineered flooring is 5/8” thick, with a thick wear layer suitable for residential and commercial applications. Old Growth Douglas-Fir is 5” wide, White Oak is 4” wide, and Jakarta Rustic and Fishtail Oak are 2-½” wide. Lengths are random, from 18” to 96” on all products.

Viridian’s engineered flooring is made with an FSC® Mix Credit, VOC-free, CARB 2-compliant, NAUF, nine-ply birch. The prefinished option features a 1/32” microbevel on all four edges; the unfinished option has square edges.

Viridian flooring can be used as wall paneling, and it can contribute points toward the U.S. Green Building Council’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. Viridian sells direct through its website and ships throughout North America and beyond. For more information visit http://viridianwood.com or call 1-877-909-WOOD.

Viridian Reclaimed Wood introduces paneling derived from reclaimed cedar and redwood fencing

Portland, OR – Viridian Reclaimed Wood today announced it has launched a line of paneling derived from reclaimed cedar and redwood fencing, according to Viridian co-owner Pierce Henley.

“Robert Frost’s musing verse, ‘good fences make good neighbors’ was the inspiration for our newest product,” Henley said.  “Our pet project to keep old fence boards from going to the landfill has grown into an extensive recycling operation and a gorgeous new paneling line called Good Neighbor.”

Available in Weathered Redwood, Fresh-Sawn Redwood and Multi-Toned varieties, Good Neighbor paneling is lightweight and easy to work with.

Good Neighbor Weathered Redwood has been exposed to years of sun, rain and snow to create a patina that is unmistakable and genuine.  The wind-worn color palette emphasizes charcoal and brown tones. It can also come as gorgeous fresh sawn redwood with just a hint of character from its prior life as a fence board. Either face can be used exclusively or mixed and matched to create unique looks.

Good Neighbor Multi-Toned embraces the variability of backyard fence boards.  It contains a broad spectrum of reds, charcoals, grays, browns and moss greens.  Some retain the vintage look of faded paint or sun-bleached whitewash. The years of fencing use create an instantly recognizable look.

All material is kiln dried, goes through a brushing process and can be milled many ways for easy installation. Paneling is 1/2” thick, with a 5” face, in lengths of 12”-70”.

Viridian Good Neighbor Paneling is FSC® Recycled 100% (post-consumer reclaimed) and can contribute points toward the U.S. Green Building Council’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 introduces range of flooring and paneling derived from truck decking

Portland, OR – Viridian Reclaimed Wood today announced the introduction of Truck Deck, a line of domestically sourced flooring and paneling derived from reclaimed red oak and white oak truck decking, according to Viridian co-owner Joe Mitchoff.

“The giant tractor-trailers used to goods from coast to coast typically contain wide planks of heavy oak decking, but the hard-driven miles take their toll on these truck decks,” Mitchoff said. “Even though they are plenty thick they have to be replaced at regular intervals. We upcycle them into flooring and panels of unparalleled character.”

Viridian’s most rustic products by far, Truck Deck’s top face has deep gouges, a thick patina and jet-black openings where the bolts were literally torched out of their holes. The underside also can be used; it is less rough and features unique rust bands where it rested on a truck’s metal trailer frame. Viridian squares up the edges and puts it through a brushing process to remove loose dirt and major catches, but Truck Deck requires additional sanding on site if it is meant to be touched. It is ¾” (or 1”, if requested) thick, 5-1/2” wide, comes in 3’ to 6’ lengths, with a Class A fire rating. The flooring and paneling are designed to be face nailed or glued and are available prefinished or unfinished.

Viridian Truck Deck can contribute points toward the U.S. Green Building Council’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 introduces line of Siberian Spruce paneling

Portland, OR – Viridian Reclaimed Wood today announced the introduction of Siberian Spruce paneling milled from reclaimed Russian crating material, according to Viridian co-owner Joe Mitchoff.

A mix of slow-growing spruce and pine from the frigid climate of subarctic Russia, the paneling is reminiscent of the walls of an alpine lodge, but its refreshingly light color also lends itself to contemporary interiors.

“This paneling’s rustic character hints of its rough-and-tumble past,” Mitchoff said. “But it’s really beautiful, and it’s an extremely affordable way to use reclaimed wood on a project.”

Siberian Spruce is available in 5/8″ or 3/4″ thicknesses, with a face width of 3″, and in random lengths from 4′ – 8′+.  The material accepts stains very well, making it extremely versatile to color match to other woods.  Viridian offers it prefinished and in custom stains and profiles.

Viridian paneling can contribute points toward the U.S. Green Building Council’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 introduces line of premade 4’x8’ architectural panels

Portland, OR – Viridian Reclaimed Wood today announced the introduction of a new line of 4’x8’ premade architectural panels with rustic and reclaimed wood faces, according to Viridian co-owner Joe Mitchoff.

The new 3-ply engineered panels were developed in response to recent demand from the commercial interiors segment, particularly store-fixture designers. Designed for reliability, durability and quick and seamless installation, they are perfect for wall coverings, store fixtures, signage and casework. Custom graphics and CNC designs can be applied to any panel.

“These panels are incredibly versatile and they can be customized in limitless ways,” Mitchoff said. “And the slimmer dimensions make them ideal for store fixture design.”

Viridian’s premade panels are available in the company’s popular Jakarta Market Blend tropical and rustic series; circle-sawn American Classics; Rustic Old Growth Doug Fir; and Doug Fir Glam™, a glue laminated product.  The panels can also be fire rated, custom stained and pre-finished.
