Our Studley Bloom Oak 150 x 14/3mm has been very popular amongst visitors to luxuryflooring.co.uk since its introduction. This product has a total thickness of 14mm. 11mm of which is made up of multi-ply backing (cheaper species such as birch are used when constructing the multi-ply backing) and 3mm of real European oak on top, this is also referred to as the wear layer. The plank width of the Studley Bloom Oak is 150mm, which is deemed a moderate plank width considering we offer other products with plank widths ranging between 80 - 300mm. A 150mm plank width is perfect for most rooms/spaces within a residential property.
With a 3mm wear layer you are able to sand down the surface up to four times in total should you ever feel it necessary. Once the oak has been sanded, you would be required to reapply a lacquer (or another choice of finish if you wish to change the appearance of your floor i.e. oil or wax) to the surface area in order to refinish it.
Once the material has been constructed into individual floorboards, approximately seven coats of pearl satin lacquer are added to the surface of the planks. This ensures the timber is completely sealed, protecting the material from any spillages and/or splashes, which are likely to occur over the years.
The Bloom Oak comes with a tongue and groove fitting mechanism offering you two different installation options - gluing or secret nailing.
The grade of this flooring is ABC, which means you are likely to come across natural knots and imperfections within the batch. This grade of timber is often referred to as ‘rustic’ on other supplier’s websites and is seen as the main attraction when purchasing natural products. If you require any matching accessories for your project, we offer a full range of accessories in the ‘lacquered’ finish including door profiles, scotia beading and skirting boards.
