Osmo UK, the eco-friendly wood and finishes expert, offers architects and interior designers with a unique looking and aesthetically pleasing wooden floor. Pre-finished with Osmo Polyx®-Oil, the Harfa flooring range from ESCO flooring is the ideal choice for anyone who is looking for a statement floor.
ESCO flooring is available via Osmo UK, following a partnership between the wood finishes expert and ESCO Group in 2014.
The ESCO collection includes nine flooring options, including Bohemia, Chateau, Moravia and Kolonial. A favourite amongst architects and interior designers is Harfa flooring. This flooring surface has been designed with a rough-sawn treatment and has been enhanced with cross-wise cuts that are grooved in the surface with great care. Harfa can be combined with many different styles and colours, providing endless possibilities.
Harfa flooring is available in eight colours, including natural, natural white, double smoked black, smoked tobacco, smoked natural, washy grey, smoked white and stone grey. There is also the option to choose between two or three layer parquet and your desired wood style – elegance, superb, classic or original.
Harfa Vintage is the so called used old version of the Harfa collection. The boards have a special optic in square saw lines in trendy unique colour variations. The surface can be rough as well as smooth; the lines of the blade of the saw are irregular and give Harfa a vintage look. Harfa Vintage is also available in eight tones, including slate stone, cappuccino white, forest honey and dark chocolate.
As with all ESCO flooring, Harfa is finished with Polyx®-Oil, Osmo’s renowned wood finishing product. Polyx®-Oil both protects and accentuates Harfa’s traditional and character filled rough-sawn solid oak flooring. As a premium wood finish, Osmo guarantees to keep wooden surfaces in top condition. It is a high quality, water-repellent and tread-resistant wood finish based on natural ingredients.
Offering all the professional features of a traditional oil-based finish, Polyx®-Oil combines the smooth surface of conventional lacquers, and the ease of application of a water-based finish, while managing to eliminate the inherent disadvantages of these other types of finish. Unlike ordinary oil finish products which form a film on the wood, Polyx®-Oil’s natural components penetrate deeply into the wood to create a micro-porous finish. This allows the wood to breathe, moisture to evaporate and ensures a flawless finish both upon application and for many years to come.
Thanks to Polyx®-Oil, ESCO flooring is strengthened from within and retains its elasticity. The surface is water repellent, stain resistant and more hard-wearing, and because it meets the wood’s natural demands and does not crack, flake, peel or blister.
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.
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 (three-layer, two-layer multi).
