Portland, OR – Viridian Reclaimed Wood today announced the introduction of European Beech, a new line of flooring reclaimed from beech shipping crates, according to Viridian co-owner Joe Mitchoff.

Viridian Reclaimed Wood Debuts Reclaimed European Beech FlooringEuropean Beech is derived from large-scale crates used to ship wind turbines and other steel cargoes from northern Europe and reclaimed locally from the Port of Vancouver.

“The grain pattern in this beech flooring is more subtle than our other reclaimed flooring options,” Mitchoff said. “Mostly it’s mellow golds, tans and peaches, and black veining in some boards creates a marbled look. Small iridescent figuring adds another level of depth to this incredibly durable wood.”

European Beech has a hardness rating of 1,300 on the Janka scale, making it suitable for commercial environments. The flooring is milled in a thickness of ¾”, in 2-1/2”, 3”, 4”, 5” and 6” widths.
