Duchateau Floors, The Chateau Collection
The Chateau Collection finish is UV Oil (colors Bravone, Lyon & Windsor are Hard-Wax Oil). Chateau collection is designed to reflect the styles found in Europe centuries ago. The Chateau Collection recreates the same time worn look that showcases the character and longevity of hardwood floor with natural changing grain patterns exemplifying true vintage artistic design. The ordinary free forming elements of natural wood are what give The Chateau Collection floors its unique character and exceptional beauty. This product can be costumed in two collections of parquet patterns: The New Classic and Palais.

As part of The Chateau Collection, this floor showcases an exceptional time worn look that brings out the unique character, natural variation and rich detail of the grain. Its all-natural hard-wax oil finish not only gives the surface its signature matte aesthetic, but is also safe for those who experience it firsthand. DuChâteau hard-wax oil is non-toxic with no biocides, no preservatives, and benzene-free, and because this floor is CARB-2 compliant – made with a formaldehyde-free adhesive – it also qualifies for the following LEED® credits:
MR 6 – Rapidly Renewable Materials
EQ 4.4 – Low Emitting Materials
Benefits of Hard-Wax Oil Finishes:
One of the secrets to the durability and beauty of DuChateau Floors is their hard-wax oil finish. The oil penetrates deeply into the wood to enhance the look of the natural grain while the wax remains on the surface to create a protective layer that helps the floors stand up to daily use and abuse.
Unlike the run-of-the-mill polyurethanes used on many wood floors today, DuChateau’s hard-wax oil creates a floor that is easily repairable—even for quick spot fixes—so there’s no need to do a major resanding and refinishing job if just one area of your floor gets damaged. Another bonus: the hard-wax oil is extremely water repellent and does not water-mark. That means DuChateau Floors are an excellent choice for homes where life happens (kids, pets and parties) and commercial spaces that see a lot of foot traffic.
By regularly applying our maintenance oils and parquet cleaner to your DuChateau Floors, they will last a lifetime and will always maintain their beauty.
Wire Brushed Hardwood Floor:
Certain styles of DuChateau Floors are wire- brushed to give them an extra accent. Using hard steel wire bristles, wire-brushing opens and enhances wood grain, removes the soft wood from the floor and brings out its texture. The floor becomes more durable and impact resistant. Minor scrapes, scratches and chips become less visible and give the wood flooring a slightly rustic look. Combined with Hard-Wax Oil, wire-brushing can give the floor a unique and characteristic appearance. Wire-brushed floors can be maintained using the same methods as a floor that has not been wire-brushed.
Micro Beveled Edge Hardwood Floor:
Some Du Chateau floors are manufactured with micro-beveled edge. Micro-bevel is a slight angled cut applied to the edges of each floor board. When two boards are fitted together, the micro-bevels form a small groove between the boards which gives definition across the whole floor. Micro-beveled edge is so small, it’s hard to notice it. The micro-beveled hardwood flooring is easy to maintain using the same methods as for flat or square-edged flooring. All you need is a good quality soft bristle broom and a soft mop. For vacuuming, attach a soft brush without a beater bar.
Nominal top layer thickness: measured prior to finishing processes. Finishing processes such as wire brushing or hand scraping will affect the overall thickness.Remember to include DuChâteau Maintenance Products on all DuChâteau orders. Use of non-approved products may damage the finish of the floor and void the warranty. Please refer to our official maintenance and care guidelines. All measurements are nominal. Custom sizes are available. Please contact us for more information.
