This classic mid to light oak lacquered product is amongst the most popular engineered options available here at Luxury Flooring and in our option it’s easy to see why.
Elgin Royale Oak 190 x 20/6mm has a plank width of 190mm. Although this width is considered fairly wide, 190mm floorboards are extremely popular in the UK has they tend to suit the average sized room (20-30m²). Our Elgin Royale is a fixed length product. The fixed lengths in this instance are 1900mm (190cm) long.
Our 190mm Pearl Satin Lacquered Engineered European Oak Wood Flooring 20/6mm Thick is elegantly prefinished with 7 layers of pearl satin lacquer that make it easy to maintain and incredibly durable. A lacquered finish will offer a smooth, glossy finish that makes it the ideal finish for contemporary properties.
This product has a total thickness of 20mm. 14mm of this total thickness is made up of multi ply backing that increases the stability of the product. The remaining 6mm is solid European oak sourced from Germany. A wear layer of 6mm is considered extremely hardwearing. You have the option to sand down and refinish this product up to 7 times in total but we don’t believe this will be necessary for the first 10 years at least. If you do decide to sand down this product, you would be required to refinish it with more lacquer or another finish of your choice. Please see our ‘Oils, Waxes and Lacquer’ tab in the ‘Accessories’ section.
All our engineered products are compatible with under floor heating, both water and electrical based systems.
Here at Luxury Flooring, all our oak is sourced from a sustainable European forestry ensuring the best quality timber whilst safeguarding the future supply and most importantly, the environment.
The grading of this engineered oak product is ABC meaning there will be some knots and natural imperfections on the surface of the planks, as you would expect with any natural wood product.
Unlike solid oak products this particular product is relatively easy to lay, as you are not required to fully bond it to the subfloor. The two most common methods of installation when it comes to engineered products would be either to lay it as a floating floor above an underlay or alternatively secret nail the floorboards directly to the wooden subfloor beneath.
If you require any matching accessories for your project, please see our accessories section above where we offer thresholds, beading and other accessories in the same lacquered finish.
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.
