Natural Oak 190×3/14
The warmth and depth of tones in our oak floors, fill any area with light and subtle tones. With its brushed surface which removes the soft core revealing the beauty and form of the wood with its now exposed grains.
Oak has a tendency to be very hard wearing with the brushing the floor becomes more durable so damages such as scratches and dents are less visible than a flat surfaced floor. The brushed oak is always a favourite with clients due to the look feel and most of all the textures which gives you the true feel of a wood floor.
Our 190 wide Oak oiled boards are fixed lengths with 1 split board giving you a lovey sense of openness and an airy feel with the larger sized boards opposed to the smaller or random length products. An oiled product is always an advantage as you can repair these without having to sand a whole floor. Oiled floors can also be re-oiled or in many cases if hard waxed last longer and this will protect and prolong the longevity of your floor.

What is Engineered Wood Flooring?
Engineered wood flooring consists of two or more layers of wood adhered together to form a plank. Typically, engineered wood flooring uses a thin layer (lamella) of oak wood bonded to a core constructed from a ply base.
The increased stability of engineered wood is achieved by running each layer at a 90° angle to the layer above. This stability makes it a universal product that can be installed over all types of subfloors above, below or on grade. Engineered wood is the most common type of wood flooring in Europe and has been growing in popularity in North America
Tongue And Groove
Tongue-and-groove One side and one end of the plank have a groove, the other side and end have a tongue (protruding wood along an edge’s centre). The tongue and groove fit snugly together, thus joining or aligning the planks, and are not visible once joined.
Natural oak 90 tongue-and-groove flooring can be installed by glue-down (both engineered and solid), floating (engineered only), or nail-down (both solid and engineered).
Types Of Floor Finishes
Brushed and Oiled – Steel brushes are used in the direction of the grain which opens up the surface of the wood and removes splinters. The wood is then oiled.
Oiled – Oiled floors have existed for several thousand years and is the most common floor finish used globally. Oils used for floor finishing are natural drying oils of vegetable origin that are not to be confused with petroleum based oils and contain no VOCs. Pre-finished oil floors can be UV cured.
Lacquered – Lacquered floors tend to be more durable and resilient to scratching, the lacquer provides a flat and smooth finish to the wood flooring.
In line with industry standards, packs may contain one split starter plank to assist with the floor layout stagger.
