Technical Specifications

Construction

Our parquet is made from an FSC Certified oak. 4mm wear layer with a birch and poplar cross ply backing layer of 14mm making a nominal thickness of 18mm*.

 

 

 

 

Grading

The grading of the oak is natural which means the majority of boards will be either prime straight grain or quarter-sawn with below 20% of boards displaying minimal sapwood (less than 20% of the boards surface). Occasional small knot holes and shakes where present, are sealed and filled prior to finishing.

 

 

 

Suitability

Commercial/hospitality e.g. Restaurants, Bars, Hotel Foyers, Boutiques, Receptions, Studios and Shops. Residential anywhere in the home excluding bathrooms, shower rooms, conservatories or wet rooms. Suitable for installation over under-floor heating up to maximum below floor (surface of the screed sub-floor) temperature of 27°C. See our under-floor heating guidance notes for fitting procedure and client care.

Installation

Can be installed fully bonded to a suitable sub floor with an approved adhesive e.g. F Ball & Co. B95 or Bona Kemi 850 . Can be installed floating method onto an approved heavyweight underlay e.g. Timbertech.  Plank flooring can also be installed using a flooring nail gun. See our guidance notes on installation.

 

 

Precautions

Our  Parquet & Plank flooring is suitable for installation in areas with an ambient temperature of 16-23°C and a relative humidity of 50-65% RH.

Adequate protection should be made to prevent damage from furniture e.g felt furniture protectors or gliders.

Adequate protection should be made to prevent damage by foot- fall abrasion e.g, the use of protective matting at entrances, protection from standing moisture, spillages etc.

Our bespoke  parquet & plank flooring is custom made and carefully checked at all stages of production. When despatched, it is regarded as being up to standards of structural integrity, tolerance and surface finish. As with all things hand made, minor variances, tolerances and defects of the forest should be regarded as part of its appeal.
