Our Brimham Bramble Oak 150 x 18mm has remained a very popular product.
The Bramble Oak is made solely from solid European oak. Once the timber has been machined into floorboards, it is scraped with a brush, removing only the softer grain whilst maintaining the hard grain. This process creates a textured surface on each plank – giving the product a more natural feel.
Furthermore, here at Luxury Flooring we would strongly advise a ‘brushed’ product if you have small children and/or pets. The brushed markings make it hard to notice any scratches/marks, which are bound to occur over time.
Once the brushing process has been finished, seven coats of hard wax oil are added to the surface of the planks.
The plank width of this flooring is 150mm (15cm), which is deemed a moderate width considering we offer other products with plank widths ranging between 80 to 300mm. A 150mm plank width is perfect for most rooms/spaces within a residential property.
The total thickness of the Brimham Bramble Oak is 18mm (1.8cm) and the lengths are random between 300-1200mm (30-120cm).With a 18mm total thickness, you are able to sand and refinish this product up to seven times. Once the oak has been sanded, you would need to reapply some oil to the surface area or another choice of finish e.g. lacquer or wax.
Brimham Bramble Oak 150 x 18mm comes with a tongue and groove fitting mechanism offering you a few different installation options; glued, secret nailed or as a floating floor. The most popular way of installing a solid product would be to glue it directly to the subfloor, using flooring adhesive.
The grade of this floor is ABC, which means you are 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 buying solid, completely natural timber.
If you require any matching accessories for your project, we offer a full range of accessories in the ‘brushed and oiled’ finish including door profiles, scotia beading and more!
Our Solid Wood flooring can be installed in two different ways, so it depends on your subfloor and what sort of method you prefer.
- 1. Gluing
With this method, adhesive is applied to the top of the subfloor with a trowel and then the individual planks are laid on top. This is our favoured method for tongue and groove parquet flooring.2. Nailing
With this method, secret nails go through the tongue to secure the planks to a wooden subfloor. Professional fitters tend to prefer this method as the result is extremely secure. You'll need to fit a wood layer above any concrete because secret nailing cannot be done directly on top of a concrete subfloor.
