Berkeley Nightfall Walnut 130 x 18/4mm Engineered Wood Flooring – product code EW2036 - is 18mm thick with a 4mm solid hardwood wear layer. This product comes in random lengths between 400-1500mm.
Walnut wood flooring is one of the most luxurious products on the market, it doesn't have the most modest price tag but once laid the true beauty and quality is evidential completely transforming any room. This walnut product is elegantly pre finished with 7 coats of pearl satin UV lacquer giving it ultimate protection, durability and easy to maintain. The lacquered finish, makes the surface layer resistant to water splashes or spillages, so if you do happen to have an accident this will simply just mop up without seeping into the surface. However as this is a natural product we would always advise you to mop up any spillages or splashes as quickly as possible.
Thanks to its build, engineered floor can withstand fluctuations in temperatures, making it perfect for use with underfloor heating. This means you can get the great look of a wood floor and experience the benefits of an underfloor heating system. EW2036 can be laid using either floating, nailed or glueing method, making it easy and quick to install. Option one, ‘floating floor’, 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.
Each plank has a 4v Groove, beveled edge giving each plank more natural definition individually. This floor can be sanded down up to 5 times however it shouldn't be necessary to do so for the first 15-20 years. The grade of this product is rustic meaning the planks have more knots and imperfections giving the floor a more natural aesthetic. The rustic grade is the most popular grade in the wood flooring industry.
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.
