Our 180mm pearl satin lacquered European solid oak at 20mm (2cm) thick flooring has an incredibly smooth surface and finish due to the seven coats of luxury pearl satin lacquer that have been applied to the timber. The pearl satin lacquer also seals the material, protecting it against any spillages or splashes that may occur in your home. We would still advise that the spillage or stain is tended to as soon as possible with a damp mop (not wet) but the liquid will not seep through into the material due to the seven coats of lacquer preventing any major issues or damage.
As opposed to an oiled or matt lacquered finish, a pearl satin lacquered finish will offer a shiny, almost glossy surface area perfect for rooms in the house that see a great deal of sunlight.
As stated in the product’s description above, the width of each plank totals 180mm (18cm) which is considered a relatively wide plank – perfect for open plan, spacious areas within the home. It is common knowledge within the flooring industry that installing a wide plank (between 180 and 300mm) product in a spacious area opens up the space and gives the impression that the room/area is larger than it actually is.
The total thickness of each plank is 20mm (2cm) – giving you the option to sand down and refinish the product up to seven times. In spite of this, we would still only advise that the sanding down and refinishing of this product is done just once every 15 – 20 years.
Our 180mm pearl satin lacquered European solid oak at 20mm (2cm) thick is a random length product. This allows you to stagger the arrangement of specific planks to give you a natural flow and feel which only natural, random length products allow you to do. The random lengths of this particular product are between 600 and 2000mm (2m) with an average plank length of 1400mm (1.4m).
There are three differing ways in which you can install this product; secret nailed through the tongue onto a wooden subfloor; glued down to the subfloor with use of a flooring adhesive or alternatively, as a floating floor on top of an underlay. Please note, if you opt to lay this floor as a floating floor; with it being a tongue and groove product, you would still be required to use a PVA based joint glue for the joints but the floor as a whole would be floating. When installing a solid wood product like our SO1095 it is vital that the subfloor, whether that is wooden or concrete, is exactly level. A level subfloor gives you the best opportunity to prevent any unwanted movement or noise when the flooring is walked over.
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.
