Malham Espresso Oak 190 x 15/4mm Click Engineered European Oak Wood Flooring has a total thickness of 15mm with a 4mm solid hardtop wear layer. This product comes in fixed lengths of 1860mm and 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 more definition individually. This floor can be sanded down up to 5 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 product much more character and warmth. The rustic grade is the most popular grade in the wood flooring industry.
The Malham Espresso Oak is installed using a click system. Similar to a jigsaw, click system floors work by fitting the planks together so that they 'click' in to place. This simple system is quick and easy meaning any DIY fan should be able to take on the job.
The way in which engineered floor is made makes it incredibly strong meaning it is ideal for high traffic areas. 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.
