Malham Fluffy Oak 190 x 15/4mm Click has a total thickness of 15mm with a 4mm solid hardtop wear layer. This product comes in fixed lengths of 1860mm. This product is lightly brushed and finished with a UV oil which gives the plank an increased amount of texture to each individual piece. Each plank has a 4V Groove, bevelled edge which gives the floor more character and unique appeal.
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. And with our 25 year guarantee you won't have to worry about your floor perishing any time soon. 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 thanks to its natural aesthetics.
Because of the way it is made engineered wood flooring is durable. This makes it ideal for using in kitchens where general wear and tear is common. As well as this, engineered wood is able to withstand fluctuations in temperatures so can be laid in basements, conservatories as well as used in conjunction with underfloor heating.
Malham Fluffy 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. The click system makes it easy for any DIY project and makes for a quick process.
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.
