Studley Earth Oak 125 x 14/3mm has a total thickness of 14mm, a width of 125mm and a wear layer of 3mm. This product comes in random lengths between 300-1200mm.
This Pearl Satin Lacquered Oak is elegantly pre finished with seven coats of chocolate stained UV lacquer giving it ultimate protection, durability and a gorgeous look. Each plank has a V Groove, bevelled edge giving each plank more natural definition. 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, the most popular in the industry, meaning the plank has more knots giving the product much more natural character.
Engineered wood, unlike solid wood, is able to tolerate fluctuations in temperatures, meaning that it is compatible with under floor heating, something that is increasingly popular in the modern home. This ability to withstand temperature changes means that this floor will be able to be used in nearly every room in your house, including conservatories and basements. Engineered wood flooring is made from layers of plywood stuck together and finished with a layer of lamella on top.
The EO2102 can be installed using one of three techniques. Option one, ‘floating floor’, is achieved by gluing the tongue and groove parts of the board and allow the floor as a whole to float, usually cushioned with use of an underlay. Option two would be to secret nail the tongue part of the plank into a wooden subfloor. Finally, option three would be to stick the timber directly onto the subfloor with use of flooring adhesive. Please see the full, downloadable installation guide in the installation tab above for more information.
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.
