Specifier Review


Thanks to James Latham’s flooring brand, Bausen, maintaining an on-trend and contemporary range of quality wood flooring – which is still competitively priced – can be achieved while also adhering to strict environmental guidelines.

Bausen’s full range of solid oak flooring is now 100% FSC American White Oak and also carries the highly respected BM TRADA Q-Mark. In addition, a selection of Bausen’s most popular engineered wood flooring is also produced from 100% FSC American White Oak on a Poplar multiply core.


Available directly from stock through James Latham’s 10-strong network of depots, strategically located across the UK, the American White Oak range includes Bona Lacquered, Brushed and Fiddes Wax Oiled as well as Super Matt Lacquered and Antique Hand Scraped Gold finishes.

Paul Latham, Director of James Latham commented, “Obviously, as signatories to the TTF Responsible Purchasing Scheme (RPP) all of our flooring has always been subject to a rigorous screening process.  However, it is very much our policy to provide affordable certified timber flooring and working closely with our suppliers, we have been able to achieve this.”

Paul added, “For now, as well as the full range of solid oak flooring being 100% FSC American White Oak we are introducing certified material for our most popular lines of engineered flooring but work is already underway to expand it across the entire portfolio.”

As well as ‘on-the-ground’ technical expertise from Latham’s fully trained staff, the company also has a specialist free-phone helpline which customers can call for additional information and advice on 0800 917 7056, plus, James Latham also has a dedicated website for its range of flooring at: www.bausen.co.uk.
