Elgin Burrow Oak 150 x 20/6mm has a thickness of 20mm with a 6mm solid hardtop wear layer. This product comes in varied lengths of 300-1800mm and is brushed and lacquered, helping to give the product not only a hard wearing and durable finish, but also looks beautiful.
This floor can be sanded down up to 4 times however it shouldn't be necessary to do so for the first 15-20 years. Additionally, this product comes with our 25 year guarantee so you can relax knowing your floor will look stunning for years. Each plank has a 4V Groove bevelled edge which gives incredible definition to each individual plank. This product has a rustic grade, the most popular grade in the industry, meaning the product will have some knots and imperfections that help in creating a sense of warmth and character that can really help to bring life to any room.
Engineered wood flooring has many applications thanks to the way in which it is made. Layers of plywood are stuck together and then finished with a layer of lamella to create an engineered wood floor. Because of this, the product is extremely versatile and is able to withstand fluctuations in temperatures. This means it can therefore be used with underfloor heating and can also be installed in rooms such as kitchens, conservatories and basements.
The Burrow Oak can be installed using one of three techniques. 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.
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. Floating Floor
- 2. Gluing
- 3. Nailing
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.
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 suitable for any type of click-fit boards.
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.
