Preference Select – Blackbutt



Them Fiddleback Engineered Australian Hardwood Collection is available in the ever popular Spotted Gum and Blackbutt. Fiddleback wear layers combine the classic features of our Australian Eucalyptus bonded onto an ever reliable Plywood core. This creates an authentic Australia timber visual with the associated stability and durability of an engineered timber construction.

Fiddleback features genuine Australian Eucalyptus wear layers of either 0.6mm or 3mm thickness, over a stable Plywood structural core. This makes for an extremely stable product with excellent wear resistance! – Spotted Gum is Janka 11kN and Blackbutt is 9.1 kN.

Fiddleback will display natural characteristics such as knots, filled voids and gum veins. Slight checking in wear layer is acceptable. Rustic grade displays all that is unique about our wonderful Australian Hardwoods with knots and dark resin filled splits, pinhole and contrasting colour tones, along with spiral grain & fine saw marks for that enhanced rustic appearance.

Fiddleback employs a patented Uniclic installation system and some formats are also available as Tongue and Groove (T & G)
