Chocolate Hand Scraped and Lacquered Solid European Oak Wood Flooring (product code SO5051) is a highly durable and stunningly attractive product. Each 20mm board provides impressive resistance against heavy foot traffic, preventing scuffs and scratches from becoming noticeable. Whilst no damages should surface for 10-15 years, any blemishes that do appear can be sanded away, restoring your boards to their former glory. With boards of this thickness, you can sand and re-finish up to a total of 9 times. To assure you of the incredible lifespan of this flooring, we issue a 25-year guarantee from the moment of purchase.
The surface of each board has been sculpted during the manufacturing process. This effect, known as hand scraping, accentuates the natural grains of the solid oak, allowing for variations in height and interesting textures underfoot. To enable every plank to have individualistic character, a 4V Groove has been cut into the surface, creating a small slope at each edge. As a result, the boards have a distinctive physical border, delivering another dimension of attention to detail. A chocolate stain has been applied for a rich, elegant appearance, and a coating of lacquer has been introduced for added protection. Sitting above the surface of the wood, the lacquer makes for easy cleaning, and provides excellent light reflecting properties.
This choice of flooring comes in single strips, measuring at random lengths of 400mm to 2000mm. Although plank length will vary between boards, each one remains at a width of 150mm, proving to be a wider alternative to other styles of solid wood flooring. This allows the rustic grade of European oak to demonstrate a varying range of intricate grains and complex knots, contributing to a warm and welcoming aesthetic.
Each single strip board has been fitted with a ‘tongue and groove’ installation system, reducing the difficulty of labour. Designed to fit together like a jigsaw puzzle, this flooring proves incredibly secure without additional nails or adhesives. Whether you decide to use the floating method, or want to fit your flooring the old fashioned way, you can rest assured that this product will stand up to the test of time.
If you’re looking to install solid or engineered wood flooring by hand, here are a few things to bear in mind:Tongue and Groove vs Click
Before you purchase your solid wood flooring, check which installation system it uses. There are two main types: ‘Tongue and Groove’ and ‘Click’.
• Tongue and Groove is more traditional, ensuring dimensional stability and strength. Along one edge, a ‘tongue’ protrudes from the centre of the board, whilst on the other, an indented groove is cut into the wood. This allows each board to fit together securely.
• Click installation is quick and hassle free. Like tongue and groove, click boards fit together, however, the click method allows the boards to lock into place, snapping together with a single movement.Floating
Many fitters prefer floating their boards due to quick and easy installation. Floating does not require you to fix your flooring to a subfloor, however, only click planks can be fitted this way.
Adhesive is applied to the groove for added stability, and underlay is fitted underneath the board. This cuts down on labour, whilst ensuring that your boards are comfortable and strong underfoot.Fixing
Fixing your flooring to the subfloor will encourage a long lifespan and minimal movement. Both Tongue and Groove and Click boards can be fitted this way, however, it is more popular with the former.
Depending on the material of your subfloor, boards can be fixed in a variety of ways. For solid surfaces such as concrete, adhesive is applied directly under the board. For wooden subfloors, the boards can be ‘secret nailed’ along the tongue. Both methods are equally beneficial, giving you outstanding results.
