This chocolate lacquered engineered product has a total thickness of 14mm (1.4cm) with a 3mm solid oak wear layer. A wear layer of 3mm enables you to sand down and refinish this product up to three times in total but we don’t believe this will be necessary for the first decade.
This chocolate lacquered engineered oak product is elegantly prefinished with seven coats of Osmo’s lacquer, which gives it ultimate protection, durability and makes it incredibly easy to clean and maintain. A lacquered finish offers a smooth, shiny finish to the surface of the material and in this instance; the timber has also been stained using Osmo’s chocolate tint/stain.
Our 150mm Chocolate Lacquered Engineered European Oak Wood Flooring 14/3mm Thick – product code EO2001 – is another of our random length products. This particular products comes in random lengths between 300-1800mm. This product uses the tongue and groove (T&G) joining mechanism. Each floorboard is manufactured with a ‘tongue’ and a ‘groove’ that are simply slotted together, creating a strong bond between individual floorboards. In addition, each plank has micro bevelled edge detail that ultimately gives each individual plank more natural definition.
Please note, a T&G product requires you or whoever is fitting the floor to first apply a small amount of PVA wood joint to both the tongue and the groove before individual planks are slotted together. This method of joining floorboards gives you three different installation options. Option one is a ‘floating floor’ and is achieved by gluing the tongue and groove parts of the board and allow the floor as a whole to float, usually cushioned with use of an underlay. Option two would be to secret nail the tongue part of the plank into a wooden subfloor. Finally, option three would be to stick the timber directly onto the subfloor with use of flooring adhesive. Please see the full, downloadable installation guide in the installation tab above for more information.
The most popular way of installing an engineered product would be to lay it as a floating floor, only gluing the joints and laying it on top of an underlay. Please note, this method of installation requires you or whoever is fitting your floor to leave an expansion gap around the perimeter of the room (approximately 10mm in total).
The grade of our EO2001 is ABC, which means you a likely to come across natural knots and imperfections within the batch. This grade of timber is often referred to as ‘rustic’ on other supplier’s websites and is seen as the main attraction when purchasing natural products. If you require any matching accessories for your project, we offer a full range of accessories in the ‘chocolate’ finish including door profiles, scotia beading and much more!
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.
