The Elgin Flock Oak 240 x 20/6mm Engineered European Oak Wood Flooring is 240m(W)x2200mm(L) and 20mm thick with a 6mm wear layer. The fact we offer a 25 year guarantee with this product truly shows just how much faith we have in its quality and durability.

The micro beveled edges on this flooring add depth and definition, meaning they make a room look larger, but aren’t as extreme as other beveled edges. This means dirt will not collect as much between planks. The fact this floor is oak also adds atmosphere to a room - the grain and knots add elegance, whereas the shade fits in with modern dark and wooden decor.

With an ABC grading, this product has a stunning combination of natural knots, imperfections and variation which gives an unparalleled rustic look to your floor. This grade is often referred to as ‘rustic’ on other supplier’s websites and is seen as the main attraction when purchasing natural products.

The planks are engineered, meaning they have greater stability than solid wood and can handle humidity changes better, but look just the same. This makes them suitable for underfloor heating, and more resistant to warping or shrinkage in such conditions - so are bathroom and kitchen friendly too! They will also last longer than solid wood in rooms with lots of natural light, due to the temperature changes this brings.

This floor should 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. 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.
