Oak Natural Oiled 180 x 15 mm: clear Oiled Oak accentuates the natural characteristics of the species, letting the golden honeyed tones come through. Oak is a versatile species that takes pigments very well, so it lends itself well to pre-sealed flooring. The physical characteristics that give Oak its charm are still visible through the finish, so this floor has a naturally charming character and can be matched with the desired design scheme.
Our overlay boards are designed to be laid over a subfloor, whether concrete or an existing wood floor. Once laid, this floor looks and feels the same as all of our beautiful wood flooring but cannot be used as a structural floor.
Oiled finishes are very popular as they have a natural look and feel, so simply add to the appearance of the wood. Oil finishes penetrate into the wood to protect the timber and in doing so, enhance the grain. This adds depth to the wood's natural appearance in the process.
Engineered wood floors are suitable for kitchens, bathrooms, utility rooms, and any other room in the house because of their greater stability and lower moisture level in the wood. Engineered wood floors are appropriate for installation over under floor heating because of their stability and moisture content.
This finish retains the natural characteristics of the timber, letting the lighter hue of the Oak speak for itself.
With an engineered floor, you get the same look and feel of a traditional solid wood floor but with the added benefits of more efficient use of precious materials, superior construction, and compatibility with under floor heating.
The 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.

Specification: Bevelled Edge
Unit Weight: 11kg
Size: 180 x 15 mm
Width: 180 mm

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.
Under Floor Heating: This product is compatible for use over an electric or water under floor heating system. The maximum temperature must not exceed 27 degrees Celsius at the floor surface.
Engineered: 2 part Engineered floor with a Hardwood top surface bonded to a multilayer waterproof Russian Birch Plywood. Can be Nailed, Stuck Down, or Floated depending on the sub floor. 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.
Pre-Oiledd: This product is supplied with a Factory UV Oiled surface. We recommends that an additional coat of oil is applied to the surface prior to regular use.
