Crafted hardwood flooring
High-grade hardwood engineered flooring up to top level 6,2mm of oak
Made to satisfy all kinds of tastes
Traditionally, 2 layer engineered flooring comes in either generous 21 mm or 16 mm total thickness. Such is produced by using either 6 mm top
layer bonded to 15 mm waterproof birch plywood, or 4 mm top layer bonded to 12 mm ply core. Custom constructions are available upon request.
A classic 3 layer flooring comes in 14 mm thickness and is made using 4 mm top layer, 1,5 mm balancing layer of birch veneer on the buttom. Cross
laid hardwood planks come in the middle section.
Tongue and Groove 4 Sides machined to a hundredth of a millimeter.
Bevelled tongue in a tongue & groove section for easy jointing.
Epi glued and cold pressed for the best bonding results. Every board is tested to check that it is properly bonded. A sample of boards are laboratory tested on a regular basis to monitor how
the bonding works in extreme conditions.
Top layer lamella
The hardwood wear layer is cut from a fresh sawn solid oak board and kiln dried afterwards. This gives a top layer uniform and light structure as opposed to cutting it from a dried board.
The process produces a top layer lamella that has the same grain appearance of a solid board.
The timber comes from FSC certified sources only.
Every wear layer is calibrated to a consistent thickness.
Core plywood layer
9 core layers bonded together.
Calibrated and sanded.
All birch layers, no mixed spieces.
Extra resistance and increased stability due to 9 layer construction of quality plywood.
FSC and CARB certified.
Thermal conductivity: λ=0,17 W/mK (applies to 21 mm thickness).
Thermal resistance: Rc=0,12 m2K/W (applies to 21 mm thickness).
Thermal conductivity: λ=0,17 W/mK (applies to 16 mm thickness).
Thermal resistance: Rc=0,09 m2K/W (applies to 16 mm thickness).
Widths: 120, 140, 160, 180, 200, 220, 240, 260, 280, 300 mm.
Lenghts: 2000/2400 mm packs with one nested layer.
Two coats of natural oil, properly dried between coats.
Eight coats of non-toxic lacquer. Light natural appearance with high durability.
Antique distressed, fumed, double fumed, neutral lacquered, brushed and oiled, french grey, white wash and many more to order.
Well balanced moisture content of the wear layer and core layer. Slowly Kiln dried 8-10% to British Standard BS8201.
True European Oak. Quercus Robur. Beautiful bright wood with proper characteristics of grain, knots and colour.
Only certified European oak and water resistant birch plywood is used.
Energy produced to kiln wood and heat warehouses comes from recycling wood waste.
Wood flooring is beautiful and unique. It is a timeless classic that looks simply stunning in any room or setting. Engineered real wood flooring
gives the best of both worlds - the luxury of a real wood finish plus the ease of installation.
A top layer of oak or ash gives you a highly individual floor with natural warmth and character. It can resist shrinkage or distortion because of the cross layer of plywood backing. But in
terms of physical appearance, it can look exactly the same as solid oak, retaining the beauty and authentic appearance of the latter.
Manufactured to the highest standards, this flooring can be sanded and re-lacquered 3 to 5 times to last even longer. It's a perfect solution that is resistant to swelling, warping or shrinkage
as opposed to solid wood floors.
Advantages of engineered flooring:
- Minimal shrinkage or warping;
- Very stable construction;
- Engineered wood floors are more dimensionally stable than solid wood floors;
- Suitable for use over under floor heating;
- Extended usage due to 4 or 6 mm oak wear layer;
- The best engineered floors have a Lifespan anywhere from 60 - 100 years;
- Using an engineered wood floor allows you to have a wood floor on any grade level;
- Engineered floors are very easy and fast to install;
- Engineered hardwood flooring can be used on wood subfloors or dry concrete slabs;
- Can be nailed, glued or laid as a 'floating floor';
- Better suited for humid areas of the country;
- Engineered floors are available in many different sizes, colors and styles;
- Multilayer floors can be sanded and refinished if ever needed;
- Hardwood flooring is the only floor covering that increases the value of your home;
- It does not cause allergies, recommended to use by allergists.
Thinking deeply, you will also realize that this is also environmental friendly. Not only will you use less oak wood, the fact that the flooring uses ply board means quick growing, sustainable trees are used for most of the parts. It’s perfect for the environment
and also good for the slow growing oaks.
