The 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.
Unsealed products can be used to introduce a particular shade into a design scheme and are also ideal for colour-matching with an existing look.
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.
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.

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.
