Dinesen flooring is manufactured and distributed from their warehouse in Denmark. It is a family run company which was established in 1898 and is currently in it’s fourth generation. Dinesen create beautiful floors either in Dinesen Douglas or in Dinesen Oak in different quality grades. Dinesen flooring can be finished in a variety of finishes but Dinesen Lye and Dinesen White Soap are most common alongside Dinesen Lye and Dinesen Oil. Dinesen flooring comes in various lengths, widths and thicknesses. In length they range from 2 metres up to 15 metres. In width they range between 15 centimetres and 50 centimetres. In thickness they range between 28 millimetres and 35 millimetres. Today having a Dinesen floor in a residential property is said to bump the value of the house up due to it’s exclusivity and value. Dinesen flooring can be found in the Saatchi Gallery in London where Dinesen also has an office.
Floor Works: Floor sand and finish with Dinesen White Soap application
This Dinesen Douglas floor was a new install by others and we were asked to sand and finish the floor. As Dinesen floors are already presanded, the main objective is make the solid wood floor flush. We lightly drum sanded the floor using our Lagler Hummel drum floor sander up to a 100 grit sand paper belt. Once the sanding was completed we abraded the floor with a 120 grit mesh screen disc on a red contractor pad before vacuuming the floor to remove any residual surface dust. All of our equipment has dust extraction attached at all times to keep dust pollution to a minimum. We then applied one coat of Dinesen Lye followed by two coats of Dinesen White Soap using a Dinesen applicator.
