The On The 9ine collection features a mix of American Hickories and European White Oaks, giving you a total of nine colors to choose from. These fashion-forward colors marry well with a wide array of design styles, and they do it on an incredibly affordable budget. Each species of wood has a finish specially designed to protect the wood and maximize its beauty over the years. Our European White Oak colors are coated with a protective hard wax oil finish, and our Hickory colors are coated with our aluminum oxide bolstered nano-tech finish. These finishes were developed and paired to bring you the quality and style of On The 9ine.
On The 9ine is a collection of nine fashion-forward colors. The different finishes on American Hickory and European White Oak deliver a wide range of tonal contrasts and add interest to any room.
• Vivid, Natural Look
• Grain Emphasis and Scratch Resistance
• Allows for easy professional touch-up
• Low Maintenance
• Protected with Nanotechnology
• Resists Scuffing
From monochromatic to high contrast, the On The 9ine collection offers a wide variety of tonal variance based on the color choice. A low color variance means each plank is relatively close in color to all the other planks delivering a monochromatic finished floor. A high variance color rating delivers a much more random assortment of contrasting planks to add interest and depth to your installation.
All On The 9ine products are Lacey Act Compliant, which protects against illegal logging around the world. Our American Hickory and European White Oak products are sustainably forested, which means the woods we use only come from forest managed under an environmental and socially responsible manner. Furthermore, On The 9ine is LEED Certified, which makes it easy for builders to distinguish between practical and green building design and construction. Our commitment to the environment is only topped by our drive to bring you the most beautiful and durable floors we can and deliver those on an affordable budget to help enhance any installation. On The 9ine products are also in compliance with the California Air Resources Board (CARB), Phase 2 Airbone Toxic Control Measure (ATCM), which keeps formaldehyde emissions from composite wood products. Our protective finishes are all low to no volatile organic compounds (VOCs). We strive every day to keep a light foot print to help maintain our beautiful surroundings.
On The 9ine hardwood flooring starts with an incredibly solid base consisting of our 7 ply baltic birch core with cross-grain construction. The rigid base is then topped by hand-selected American Hickory and European White Oak wear layers finished in designer colors to reflect today’s modern styles.
Our protective hard wax oil finish enhances the natural highlights of the wood’s colors. The oil seeps into the wood and brings out the inherent beauty and characteristics of the wood grain. To protect the surface, the tough protective wax coating creates a solid barrier that helps keep your floors beautiful through the years. In the event you do get a scrape or scratch, the hard wax oil finish allows for spot repair.
Our Titanium ScuffGARD finish gets its strength from the aluminum oxide nano-tech particles embedded in the urethane coating. Did you know aluminum oxide is almost as hard as diamond? With a Mohs hardness rating of 9 (diamond being 10), your ScuffGARD-finished floors are backed by our 50 year limited residential and commercial warranty. It will preserve the beauty of your floors for years to come.
Yes, just like other Regal Hardwoods products, we keep the ON THE 9INE collection in stock. This means no backorders, no wait times, and less hassle.
Because we are the manufacturer, we are able to set and maintain extremely high quality standards for all of our products and by being the manufacturer we are able to skip traditional broker / distribution fees providing substantial savings to the dealer and end user without sacrificing quality.
Engineered hardwood floors are more resistant to moisture and humidity than solid hardwood, so they can be installed below, on, or above grade. Under adverse conditions, solid hardwood floors can warp, cup, swell or split apart. Engineered hardwood flooring overcomes these problems by constructing a multiple-ply plank which counteracts twisting and remains flat and intact.
A Baltic Birch hardwood core is much more stable than soft wood. It provides superior structure stability and minimizes expansion and contraction of the floor. Most manufacturers use poplar, compressed fiber board or other soft wood options to reduce cost as well as reduce weight allowing them to ship more, due to freight restrictions.
There is no expensive equipment required. With proper care, a prefinished hardwood floor will never need to be professionally sanded or coated. Regular dust mopping or vacuuming is essential to the care of hardwood floors. A good quality dust mop or vacuum attachment is the most effective tool for cleaning dust and dirt off the floor. Always use Regal Hardwoods recommended cleaning products. We have put these products through tests on all our collections, and they have delivered the best results. Our European White Oak colors feature the Nature GARD hard wax oil finish; we highly recommend using Woca Natural Soap for post-installation maintenance and every day cleaning. Woca Natural Soap is made up of emollients extracted from soy beans and coconut oils, which also retain the moisture in the floor, just as quality soap would for your hands. As they dry and form an invisible film on the surface, the floor receives added protection against wear and dirt. Natural Soap is only to be used for cleaning and maintenance of oiled, waxed, and soaped surfaces.
We strongly recommend using Pro-Care Citrus Floor Cleaner for our Titanium ScuffGARD finish, and WOCA Natural Soap on our Nature GARD finish. We no longer recommend the use of Bona floor cleaners on any of our hardwood products. Never use wax on top of a non-wax surface finish. Do not use household all-purpose cleaners similar to Formula 409, Orange Glo, Old English, dishwashing detergents, and paste wax. Consult our Tips and Care sheet for more info.
Spills – Wipe up spills immediately with a lightly dampened cloth, then follow up with a recommended cleaning product. Stubborn Stains - lightly dampen a soft cloth with a Regal Hardwoods recommended hardwood floor cleaner (Pro-Care Citrus Floor Cleaner for Titanium ScuffGARD finish and Woca Natural Soap for Nature GARD finish). Apply directly to the stain and repeat as necessary. Scratches - On the European White Oak floors, it is possible to perform spot repairs. We highly recommend contacting a professional floor covering repair expert to address gouges and/or scrapes. If necessary, use WOCA Oil Refresher for restoring luster and beauty to oiled wood floors. This adds a protective moisture-resistant layer to the surface of the floor and will extend the life of the oil finish.
During installation of flooring pieces, push or gently tap boards flush to the previous row. To prevent damage to the finish, avoid tapping the face of the board with a rubber mallet. Please do not use any tapes on oil finished floors. Never adhere tape to finished flooring. Regal Hardwoods recommends an initial coat of Woca Natural Soap right after installation for maximum protection/resistance against stains/dirt/moisture.
We recommend InstaLay flooring installation system because it reduces sub-floor preparation and eliminates the need for wet adhesives, making installation quick, clean, and simple while saving significant time. With InstaLay, there is no need for tape. It can also be used as a self-adhesive acoustic underlayment for LVTs, solid, engineered and laminate wood floors, woven vinyl, and ceramic tiles, carpet tiles and carpets.
