Studley Meadow Oak 125 x 14/3mm has a plank width of 120mm and is a random length product (between 300-1200mm). A 125mm plank width is deemed a fairly narrow plank and works better in smaller spaces such as bedrooms or hallways. Random length or RL products allow you or whoever is fitting your floor to stagger individual planks – creating a free-flowing look. Also, the 3mm wear layer enables you to sand and refinish the surface up to 3 times in total, however this shouldn’t be necessary for the first 10-15 years. Engineered or multi-ply backed products are incredibly resilient to temperature changes that make them suitable for the vast majority of rooms within your home – even the conservatory! Due to their stability, all of our engineered wood products are compatible with both water and electrical based under floor heating systems.

Our Meadow Oak uses the tongue and groove (T&G) joining mechanism. Each floorboard is manufactured with a ‘tongue’ and a ‘groove’ that are simply slotted together, creating a strong bond between individual floorboards. Please note, a T&G product requires you or whoever is fitting the floor to first apply a small amount of PVA wood joint to both the tongue and the groove before individual planks are slotted together. This method of joining solid oak planks gives you three different installation options. Option one is a ‘floating floor’ and 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.

The grade of our Meadow Oak is ABC grade - other suppliers may refer to this grade of timber as rustic. This simply means there will be knots and natural imperfections within the batch. This ultimately gives the product that natural, flowing feel and look – something, which is only achievable with a natural product.

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. 1. Floating Floor
  2. 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.

  3. 2. Gluing
  4. 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.

  5. 3. Nailing
  6. 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.
