Painswick Rabbit Oak 150 x 600 x 14/3mm Click Herringbone Engineered Oak Wood Flooring – product code HE1196 - has a total thickness of 14mm with a 3mm hardtop wear layer. This product comes in fixed lengths of 600mm and is lightly brushed and finished with a pearl satin UV lacquer 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 4 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. Additionally, the herringbone floor is on trend this year and will help to immediately modernise your home and keep it in style.
Engineered wood floor is incredibly resistant and can therefore withstand splashes, spillages and every day wear and tear. However as this is a natural product we would always advise you to mop up any spillages or splashes as quickly as possible. Engineered flooring is also able to withstand fluctuations in temperatures which means its compatible with underfloor heating, something that is increasingly popular in modern homes. This ability to endure temperature changes also means that this product can be laid in rooms such as conservatories or basements, where other flooring could damage itself.
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 recommended for most click-fit boards. The exception to the rule is if you're installing your click-fit floor over underfloor heating. In this case, adhesive can help keep the floor stable with fluctuating temperatures and can reduce creaky floorboards.
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.
