Elgin Moon Oak x 20/6mm has a total thickness of 20mm with a 6mm solid hardtop wear layer. This product comes fixed lengths of 2200mm. This product is lightly brushed and finished with a UV oil which gives the plank more texture and character. Each plank has a 4V Groove, bevelled edge giving each plank 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 with our 25 year guarantee you can rest assured that your floor will look beautiful for years.
The way in which engineered floor is made makes it incredibly durable, which makes it ideal for using in kitchens where water exposure to dirt is more common through food spillages and other day to day wear and tear. It is also suitable to be used with underfloor heating, something that is increasingly popular in most modern homes. Engineered wood flooring has the ability to withstand fluctuations in temperatures and can therefore also be used in rooms where a solid wood could not, such as conservatories or even basements.
The grade of this product is rustic, which gives the plank a lot of warmth and character and can help your floor look that bit more expensive. The rustic grade is the most popular grade in the wood flooring industry thanks to its ability to offer a huge amount of depth to the material.
The Elgin Moon Oak can be installed using either a floating, nailing or glueing technique. 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.
