Elgin Maze Oak 240 x 20/6mm has a total thickness of 20mm with a 6mm solid hardtop wear layer which comes in fixed lengths of 2200mm. This product is pre finished with a UV oil which gives the flooring an ultra strong protection from any damage as well as a gorgeous look.

Each plank has a 4V Groove, bevelled edge which gives each plank a high quality individual 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 plus this product comes with our 25 year guarantee. The grade of this product is rustic, the most popular grade in the industry. A rustic grade means the planks come with natural knots and imperfections which help to add a great sense of character and warmth to the product.

The Elgin Maze 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.

Engineered floor doesn't only look beautiful, it is also incredibly practical too. The way that it is built makes engineered wood hard wearing so is ideal for using in kitchens where high foot traffic is common. This also means maintaining your floor is noticeably easier as there is no need for special cleaning materials. Engineered flooring, unlike some other flooring, is able to endure fluctuations temperatures. Because of this, it is also suitable for use with underfloor heating and can be used in rooms such as conservatories and basements without damaging.

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.
