The Briccole Collection
CoorItalia Architectural Elements offers Briccole, the groups of wood piles used to mark navigable channels, and sometimes mooring pylons in the Venice Lagoon.
These ancient timbers, primarily Chestnut and Oak, having been exposed to salty water and weathered for many years, offers a much higher resistance and particular characteristics than any other comparable wood. Of course, because of its origin, it can display nail marks, wood knots and sea mollusk holes. Its charm, character and fascination is immediately perceived by the world traveled client.
Thanks to the pre-treatment in desiccating oven and through the multi-layer sandwich paneling, the flooring material guarantees a high resistance to warping, which makes it perfectly suitable for any type of floor heating.
The surface can be further smoothed down at the factory before shipment and installation, to allow for barefoot traffic.
Typical dimensions are as follows (but customizations are possible):
Thickness: 5/8″ or 3/4″ (nominal, actual 17 or 20mm)
Width: 4-3/4″, 6″ or 7″ (nominal, actual 120, 150 or 180mm)
Length: 59″ or 79″ (nominal, actual 1500 or 2000mm)
Obviously the same modules can be used as wall covering, or for other type paneling.
