Elgin Honey Pot Oak 190 x 20/6mm is 20mm thick with a 6mm wear layer which comes in fixed lengths of 1900mm. This product is hand scraped which is one of the most popular flooring finishes on the market offering each plank a distressed antique approach. This golden hand scraped product is elegantly prefinished with seven coats of pearl satin UV lacquer giving it ultimate protection, durability and easy to maintain.

Each plank has a V Groove, bevelled edge giving each plank more natural definition. This floor can be sanded down up to 7 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 much more natural character. The rustic grade is the most popular grade in the wood flooring industry.

Engineered wood flooring is made from layers of plywood stuck together before being finished with a layer of lamella for a high quality finish. Because of its structure, engineered wood flooring is therefore suitable for use with underfloor heating. Its ability to withstand fluctuations in temperatures also means that it is able to be used in rooms such as conservatories and basements, making its applications much wider than other floor types. This hand scraped 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.

The Elgin Honey Pot 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.

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. Both click and tongue and groove 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.
