Repurposed Truck Deck Flooring

Viridian Truck Deck

Viridian Reclaimed Wood's "Truck Deck" is a line of domestically sourced flooring and paneling derived from reclaimed red oak and white oak truck decking, according to Viridian co-owner Joe Mitchoff.

“The giant tractor-trailers used to goods from coast to coast typically contain wide planks of heavy oak decking, but the hard-driven miles take their toll on these truck decks,” Mitchoff said. “Even though they are plenty thick they have to be replaced at regular intervals. We upcycle them into flooring and panels of unparalleled character.”

Viridian’s most rustic products by far, Truck Deck’s top face has deep gouges, a thick patina and jet-black openings where the bolts were literally torched out of their holes. The underside also can be used; it is less rough and features unique rust bands where it rested on a truck’s metal trailer frame. Viridian squares up the edges and puts it through a brushing process to remove loose dirt and major catches, but Truck Deck requires additional sanding on site if it is meant to be touched. It is ¾” (or 1”, if requested) thick, 5-1/2” wide, comes in 3’ to 6’ lengths, with a Class A fire rating. The flooring and paneling are designed to be face nailed or glued and are available prefinished or unfinished.

Viridian Truck Deck can contribute points toward the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Credits: MRc3: (Materials Reuse), MRc4 (Recycled Content), MRc5 (Regional Materials) and MRc7 (Certified Wood).

Viridian Reclaimed Wood manufactures flooring, architectural panels, table/countertops, paneling, decking and beams. The company is headquartered in Portland, Oregon, and was founded with the purpose of upcycling dockside discards (shipping crates, pallets, scrap lumber) into useful reclaimed interior and exterior architectural products. Viridian sells direct through its website and ships throughout North American and beyond.
