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.
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.
