Osmo UK, the eco-friendly wood and finishes expert, continues to provide architects and interior designers with oil-based wood finishes that work without a primer. Since summer 2014, Osmo UK has been proudly partnered with rustic European oak flooring specialists, ESCO. The partnership provides a selection of ESCO flooring pre-finished with Osmo Polyx®-Oil, making ESCO wood flooring the ideal solution for anyone looking for a stand-out wood floor.
For over a year, Osmo UK and ESCO have worked together to produce stylish oak wood flooring with Osmo’s renowned wood finishing product, Polyx®-Oil. Anyone embarking on an oak wood flooring project can select from a collection of nine solid oak flooring styles that come pre-finished with Osmo, such as Bohemia, Chateau, Kolonial and Harfa. Favoured by architects and interior designers, buyers are also able to select the surface texture and colour of the flooring, offering high-quality flooring with individual tailoring.
One of the most popular flooring choices is Moravia. Known as a ‘3-Dimensional’ cosmetic optic, the combination of the rustic oak and the specific brushing treatment used makes the wood’s knots and cracks appear deeper in the board, creating a stunning and unique texture. Filled with an ecological filler, the wood’s enhanced natural cracks and growth rings offer a very rustic option that is set to add a whole new dimension to any traditional or contemporary room. Moravia is available in eight light to dark shades, ranging from honey-coloured Moravia Natural to the deep Moravia Smoked Tobacco.
Supplied completely finished with Osmo Polyx®-Oil, Osmo’s ESCO solid wood flooring requires no additional coatings and can be ready to walk on in hours, not days, after installation. Osmo’s Polyx®-Oil enhances the floor’s performance with a durable finish that is created with natural, environmentally friendly ingredients. Quality assured, Osmo Polyx®-Oil guarantees hard-wearing and durable protection, as well as offering resistance to stubborn stains such as coffee, wine and cola.
Founded in 1997 in the Netherlands, ESCO Group has grown from a trader to all-round trading and manufacturing company with official partners, such as Osmo, all over Europe and the rest of the world. The company produces flooring for architects, real estate, builders and wholesales within the wooden flooring markets, specialising in rustic oak flooring in both solid and engineered (3-layer, 2-layer multi).
Established over 25 years ago, Osmo UK is one of the leading suppliers a natural and environmentally friendly alternative to wood finishing. The products are based on rapidly renewable, natural vegetable oils that penetrate deeply into the wood, keeping it elastic and healthy, whilst preventing it from drying and becoming brittle. As the range is not produced for the mass market, more time can be spent on ensuring all the products are of the highest quality.
