The THRUST FLOORS Group of companies, which includes both Australian Parquet Industries P/L and Australian Parquet Manufacturers P/L, is a 100% Australian company – family owned and operated.
The managing director, Gerald Roger Swindale is the current President of the “National Wood Flooring Association of Australia “ and Chairman of the Technical Committee and has been actively involved in the Design, Manufacture, Sale & Installation of Detailed Parquet & Specialised Wood Floor Systems for over 53 years.
Parquet and Parquetry Flooring offers many technical advantages over conventional one-directional Timber Board Floors.
As all wood is hygroscopic (meaning it both gives off and uptakes atmospheric moisture through a range of seasonal conditions) Parquet Flooring, because it is most usually installed in a multi-directional pattern, reduces by 50% the amount of movement that is experienced through seasonal conditions.
As most of the Sydney Basin is regarded as a “High Humidity” area, Parquet has always been selected as the preferred form of Timber Parquet Flooring especially anywhere that is right on Sydney Harbour.
Parquet Patterns and Designs are almost limitless and when combined with Contrasting Inlaid Feature Ribbons or Solid Brass Inlay Work stunning results can be achieved which significantly appreciates the asset value of these properties for a lifetime presentation of beautiful Wooden Flooring.
