Victorian Ash

Characterised by its incredible durability and resilience, as well as its ability to add warmth to any space, it comes as no surprise that Victorian Ash is one timber we continue to turn to for a wide range of projects. With pale blond and honey tones, it’s both cost effective and readily available.

 

Light in colour, Victorian Ash features warm honey and straw hues with cream and pink undertones – warm and resilient, it offers a subtle finish that suits any space.

This timber is known for its excellent staining, colours and oils can be used to match the Ash to other timbers or features throughout the home.

Interior Applications

In comparison with Merbau and Blackbutt, Victorian Ash is a far softer hardwood species. Whilst still durable, it is suited to interior applications where it is sheltered from our harsh weather conditions. It is ideally use for flooring and panelling, architraves and skirting boards, and even high-end joinery. If you have a project in mind and you’re interested in using Victorian Ash, speak with our team to find out if it’s suitable for your application.

Cost Effective Hardwood

For a hardwood timber that fits within your budget constraints, Victorian Ash may be the perfect choice. Used across Australian for many years, it’s a cost effective and readily available material that still offers the look and feel of traditional hardwood flooring. You can create an opulent and classic space without sacrificing the quality of the materials that you use.

Can I use Victorian Ash in fire prone areas?

Whilst many people love the look and feel of hardwood timber, they are often concerned that they can’t use it within their home as they live in a bush fire prone area. Victorian Ash hasn’t been tested for bushfire resistance, so it may only be suitable for interior use if you live in an area where fires are a concern. For information specific to the suburb you’re building in, or recommendations of a timber that may be more suitable, speak with our team today – we’re available six days a week with friendly advice and recommendations.

Are Victorian Ash and Tasmanian Oak the same timber?

Essentially. Tasmanian Oak is the common name given to three almost identical species of eucalyptus and are almost always marketed as a single timber. Victorian, Mountain or Alpine Ash, Tasmanian Oak and Stringybark are used almost interchangeably.
