Gorgeous old teak gratings reclaimed and reconditioned from one of the Royal Navy’s most esteemed ships, HMS Hermes (R12)

These were used as anti-slip flooring in several areas of the ships. Constructed of beautiful old Burmese teak by British craftsmen during the swansong period of British ship-building in the ’50’s. Customers use these gratings in a whole range of ways from presenting floor standing antiques to shower drying off areas

As you can see by the photographs there is a small notch in the framework of the teak that was made to fit around a stanchion. this does not impair structural integrity in any way and can be considered part of this pieces charm

These items are exclusive to Trinity Marine, as we were the only company that was allowed onboard to salvage significant quantities of artefacts from the Hermes in the same way as we were with other RN carriers we were appointed to, such as; HMS Ark Royal and HMS Vengeance, as well as other ships of the Royal Navy, HMS Cornwall, Plymouth, LLandaff, Fearless to name just a few

Along with the teak you will receive a Certificate of Authenticity to accompany your investment. Keep that safe as the value of this item will only go up in time
