ViridianViridian Reclaimed Wood introduces a new line of engineered reclaimed hardwood flooring in four different species, according to Viridian co-owner Joe Mitchoff.

Available in the company’s popular Jakarta Market Blend (made from reclaimed shipping crates and pallets), European Beech (derived from crates used to ship wind turbines), White Oak (made from domestic industrial shipping crates) and CVG Douglas-fir Gym Bleacher (old-growth fir recycled from gym bleachers), Viridian’s new engineered flooring has a thickness of 5/8” with a 4.0 mm wear layer and can be used in commercial applications.

“We’ve made engineered flooring on a special-order basis for years,” Mitchoff said. “But demand for FSC-certified product has dramatically increased in the commercial interiors segment, and this is a great way to get reclaimed wood into larger commercial installations.”

Viridian’s engineered flooring is made with a VOC-free, nine-ply birch core in widths of 2-1/2” to 7-1/2” and long average lengths of 4’ to 5’. A UV-prefinished option features a 1/32” microbevel on all four edges; unfinished has square edges.

Viridian flooring, which can also be used as 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 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.
