Oak is a highly popular species that is a real classic and is suitable for a wide range of finishes and appearances, so that you can achieve the style you want.
If you’re looking for a floor that delivers on character and vibrancy, narrow boards are a great option. Narrow boards can be used effectively in all rooms and look particularly stunning in open warehouse style apartments and rooms with high ceilings.
With an engineered oak floor, you get the same look and feel of a traditional solid oak floor but with the added benefits of more efficient use of precious materials, superior construction, and compatibility with under floor heating.
Unsealed Oak products provide the flexibility to finish the wood in any colour once the floor is fitted. This gives you the option to have a completely bespoke floor, tailored to your personal preference.
Engineered board has been produced using a Russian WBP birch ply, manufactured to European standard EN 326-2. The adhesive used to bond the board is an E1 category, PUR adhesive (formaldehyde free) to DIN/EN 14257 and DIN/EN 204 low emission glue which is heat and water resistant in accordance with BS EN 14342:2005+A1. The top layer is kiln dried to between 8-12% moisture content.
The formaldehyde emissions are: 0,01 ppm, pentachlorophenol emissions: <0.8 mg/kg.
Thermal conductivity (W/mK) is 0,10W/mK.
Suitable for secret fixing to ply, battens or joist subfloor, floating on an underlay or a fully bonded installation to a screed subfloor. The unsealed board is supplied with a micro bevel along the length of the board, pre- sanded requiring only a light 100/120 grit sand to finish.
Compatible for use in conjunction with underfloor heating the board complies with BS 8201:2011, rated in accordance with BS EN 13501-1, and is classified D fl -S1 when laid as a fixed floor on a structural subfloor or E fl- S1 when laid on battens or joists for minimal smoke production.
Suitable for underfloor heating: Yes
Nail Fitting Nail fixing is usually done via a nail gun, e.g Porta-Nailer, where a serrated nail is inserted through the tongue at 45 degrees.
Stick Down Sticking involves the use of an adhesive to bond the wood flooring to either a concrete/screed sub floor or to a ply/chipboard sub floor.
Floating A floating floor is not physically connected to the sub floor. Normally laid on an underlay, the floor is joined by gluing the tongue and groove together or by using a click system.
Profile All floors are Tongue and Groove with Ends Matched unless stated otherwise.
Micro Bevelled Micro Bevelled means a very small v shape can be seen on the long sides of the boards. The ends have no bevel.
