The flooring industry is known as “PRIME GRADE” or” AB GRADE”.
Knots and any voids (that is hollows associated with them) are permitted within limits in all three grades. The knots
must be sound (will not fall out), however in Select Grade the splits that can be seen within these knots, known
as knot checks, are not permitted. For this reason even though the size of the small knot in the first photo may be
within Select Grade limits, the knot check would cause it not to meet grade. Due to this, even small knots are often
not found in Select Grade boards. Knot checks are permitted in both Medium Feature – Standard Grade and High
Feature Grade. The knot in the second photo meets Medium Feature – Standard Grade requirements and the knot
in the third photo meets High Feature Grade.
