The Chamonix Pale Oak 90 x 600 x 18/4mm 60 Degree Unfinished Chevron Engineered Oak Wood Flooring is 90mm wide x 600mm long and 18mm thick with a 4mm wear layer. It has beveled edges for greater depth and definition to help make a room look larger. The fact we offer a 25 year guarantee demonstrates the faith we have in the quality and your satisfaction with this product.

The chevron pattern can be used to make a room look larger, or direct the eyes towards a feature piece of furniture for example. Being vintage, it also adds an air of sophistication to your home, and is something unique to other wood floors. It would work well with vintage furniture or in Victorian houses. This particular shade would also look wonderful in well lit rooms due to its lights shade, that has the additional benefit of again making a room look larger.

The floor has an unfinished appearance, meaning it is in its natural state, and brings a more vintage authentic look to your home. As being unfinished makes it less protected, we recommend this floor in rooms that are not so busy or where spillages do not occur. However, it is possible to finish this floor yourself however you desire meaning you can enjoy some DIY and add a personal touch to your home. You can see the accessories section of our website for a quality range of products to finish your floor.

The ABCD grade is also known as mixed grade, meaning it is rustic, with knots, heavy grain, some colour variation and mineral staining. Surface cracks may also be visible. All of these properties make it as authentic looking as possible, not dissimilar to the original parquet designs that were first used centuries ago. As aforementioned, the floor is unfinished, meaning its risk of scratches for example will only enhance the rustic look rather than hamper it.

As the planks are engineered, they use solid wood as surface layer, but the materials underneath this have greater stability and can handle humidity changes better. This makes them suitable for underfloor heating, and more resistant to warping or shrinkage in such conditions. They are also therefore suitable in rooms where spillages occur, or there is lots of heat and natural light.

This floor can be installed using a ‘floating floor’ method, involving gluing the tongue and groove parts of the board, usually cushioned with use of an underlay. Alternatively, a ‘secret nail’ in the tongue of each plank can be used to attach the planks to a wooden subfloor. Finally, a flooring adhesive can be used to stick it directly on to the subfloor. Please see the full, downloadable installation guide in the installation tab above for more information, and to find out which would be best for your home.

Our Engineered Flooring can be installed in three different ways, so it depends on your joining method, the subfloor and what sort of method you prefer.

  1. 1. Floating Floor
  2. In a floating floor, the boards are joined to each other, instead of to the subfloor. If you have a click-joining floor, floating is the way to go. If not, you could still use this method by gluing the tongue and the groove joint together. Either way, we'd advise you to have underlay installed and prepped. We wouldn't recommend this method for tongue & groove parquet as it won't be as sturdy.

  3. 2. Gluing
  4. 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 & groove parquet flooring but isn't recommended for most click-fit boards. The exception to the rule is if you're installing your click-fit floor over underfloor heating. In this case, adhesive can help keep the floor stable with fluctuating temperatures and can reduce creaky floorboards.

  5. 3. Nailing
  6. With this method, secret nails go through the tongue to secure the planks to a wooden subfloor. Because of this, nailing is only suitable for tongue & groove floors, not click-fit. 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.
