Our Frozen Brushed and Oiled Engineered European Oak Wood Flooring combines the decorative flair of a highly favoured species with a bespoke choice of finishes. The 3mm wear layer of solid oak has been expertly chosen with character and strength in mind, and can be sanded up to 3 times to preserve the quality of the wood. We have chosen an ABC grade for the solid wood veneer, taking advantage of the natural blemishes, knots, and fine grains to create a perfectly balanced appearance. Added to this is a multi-ply base, measuring at 11mm. The thickness of the board provides effective defence against low-to-moderate foot traffic, and is suitable for areas with extreme conditions. This is due to the board’s superior construction of compressed timbers, making the flooring suitable for kitchens, conservatories, and over underfloor heating.
The outstanding visual qualities of European oak are enhanced by the width and varying lengths of each board. Measuring at 180mm, this flooring has a versatile appearance that brings proportion to both small and large spaces. In addition, with random lengths ranging from 400mm to 1500mm, every board is unique, exhibiting a varying spectrum of oak’s bespoke personality. This is enhanced further by the inclusion of a brushed and oiled finish. Each board has had new growth removed during the manufacturing process, creating a rustic aesthetic. Alongside this, oil is applied to strengthen the wood. Opposed to sitting above the surface, the oil is absorbed into the grain, preserving its naturalistic qualities. Finally, the boards are bathed in an elegant white stain, elevating the lightness of the oak surface to new heights.
For added depth, this choice of flooring utilises a micro-bevel. The sloping edges create a small indent in the join, giving each board distinction. Micro-bevelled edges also improve textures underfoot, making for a more authentic look and feel.
The Studley Frozen Oak comes with a tongue and groove fitting mechanism offering you two different installation options - gluing or secret nailing. Plus, this gorgeous floor comes with an impressive 25-year guarantee, assuring incredible longevity.
