Ash is widespread throughout Europe and is one of the most predominant domestic hardwoods. Ash wood is a heavy and firm wood with remarkable strength properties. Therefore it is often used for plank floors. Ash floorboards are used especially when it comes to meeting high requirements in terms of strength, toughness and elasticity. Thermo ash floorboards are thermally treated and are therefore less susceptible to wood-damaging fungal or insect infestations and offer a long-lasting lifespan even outdoors.
If you would like to give your premises more character, a wooden floor made of ash planks is the ideal choice. markiewicz is your experienced partner for a noble and high-quality wooden floor tailored to your requirements and desires. We offer an individual custom-made solution - our offer includes ash floorboards in various lengths, widths and thicknesses, which can be selected according to your specifications.

Ash is also known as a deciduous tree and is used for a wide variety of applications. Ashes can live for up to 250 years - but as a timber tree they are usually cut down at the age of 80 to 120 years. The log diameter by then is approx. 50 to 80 centimeters. The trees have often grown in a straight line and show a cylindrical appearance. The wood has a light yellowish-grey to white-yellow-redish coloring. As it dries, the sapwood can take on a much lighter, almost whitish color. The heartwood may later have a darker light brown to light reddish color.
Ash wood planks are particularly elastic and stretchy while still retaining a high degree of durability. You can choose between plank planks, ship's flooring (falling lengths of one to three meters) or excessive chateau planks with a length of up to 6 meters as well as fixed widths of 20, 24, 26 and 28 centimeters or mix widths of 18 to 28 centimeters. The thicknesses are available in 15, 20 or 22 millimeters.
Our ash wood planks are laminated and have a birch plywood plank support (multiplex). You can choose between 2-layer planks with birch plywood beams and a top layer of three to six millimeters oak lamella or 3-layer planks with birch plywood beams (10 mm) and a top layer of five to six millimeters oak lamella. The backing is also made of five to six millimeter oak lamella.
From polished (homogeneous and smooth surfaces) to brushed and hand-planed, we offer you a wide range of different surfaces. The final treatment of the ash planks with oils, waxes or lacquers is possible in various degrees of gloss, from deep matt to high-gloss polished. Depending on your requirements and needs, you can also choose from other finishing techniques for the top layer, which can be implemented on a project-specific basis.
Wooden floorboards made of thermal ash are subjected to a process without chemical additives. When exposed to high heat and humidity, the cell structures are changed in a way that significantly reduces the water absorbency. Thermo ash floorboards are less susceptible to wood-damaging fungal or insect attack, while offering a similar lifespan of tropical wood and a significantly reduced swelling and shrinkage behavior. Therefore, thermo ash floorboards are also ideally suited for outdoor use.
The wood qualification of the top layer of our wooden floorboards made of ash / thermal ash can also be individually selected. There are three different options to choose from:
SELECT offers a calm wooden structure with an arbitrary grain pattern with subtle natural discolorations, small knots and narrow cracks.
NATURE shows a clear wood structure. Here you choose ash wood planks with a lively wood grain, natural discolorations, knots as well as shrinkage and wind cracks.
RUSTIC offers a lively wood structure with wood split pin and hard core as well as distinctive knots and shrinkage cracks.
