Studley Newborn Oak 190 x 14/3mm Unfinished has a thickness of 14mm with a 3mm solid hardtop wear layer. This product comes in fixed lengths of 1900mm and is unfinished allowing the end user to finish it to how they desire, over recent years self finishing has become more popular as there are many different oils and lacquers on market, which are more precise to meet certain requirements.
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 prime, eliminating any knots of imperfections, so if you are looking for a clean board, this is the product for you.
The way in which engineered flooring is made makes it not only stunning, but practical too. This means that it is perfect for using in kitchens, where exposure to dirt is quite common. Unlike its solid wood counterpart, engineered wood is suitable to be used with underfloor heating. An excellent conductor of heat, engineered wood can retain and circulate heat leaving your rooms warmer, for longer. Underfloor heating is increasingly becoming the go to for heating in modern homes thanks to its ability to heat a room evenly. Therefore finding a floor that can work in conjunction with this is imperative.
The Studley Newborn Oak 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.
