Viridian Reclaimed Wood introduces Truck Deck, a line of domestically sourced flooring and paneling derived from reclaimed red oak and white oak truck decking. Viridian upcycles the wide planks of heavy oak decking used in giant tractor-trailers into flooring and panels. Truck Deck’s top face has deep gouges, a thick patina and jet-black openings where the bolts were torched out of their holes, says Viridian. The underside also can be used and is less rough but features rust bands from resting on the truck’s metal trailer frame. Viridian squared up edges and uses a brushing process to remove loose dirt and major catches and does additional sanding when needed. Flooring and paneling is ¾” thick or 1” thick if requested, 5 ½” wide, and 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 LEED credits: MRc3 (Materials Reuse), MRc4 (recycled content), MRc5 (Regional Materials) and MRc7 (Certified Wood).
