This lacquered, engineered oak product has been pre-finished with seven layers of pearl satin lacquer giving it ample protection while maintaining the timber’s knots and natural imperfections beneath the shiny surface. As this engineered oak product has been finished with Osmo’s pearl satin lacquer, you are able to sand down and re-finish localised areas that give the floor a new lease of life.
Each plank has a width of 190mm (19cm) and a length of 1900mm (190cm) making product Studley Spring Oak 190 x 14/3mm a fixed length product (FL). A plank width of 190mm is considered a fairly wide plank width – ideal for open plan spaces and/or larger rooms within your household.
190mm Pearl Satin Lacquered Engineered European Oak Wood Flooring 14/3mm Thick hasan overall thickness of 14mm with a 3mm wear layer (real oak). This floor can be sanded down up to 4 times in total, however this shouldn't be necessary for the first 15-20 years or so.
Multi-ply backed engineered flooring is extremely resilient to temperature and humidity changes, which makes it well suited for use over under floor heating systems; both electrical and water based. Due to the thickness of this product (14mm) the under floor heat transfer will be near its maximum efficiency when coupled with a low tog underlay. Please see our accessories section for more information on the underlays we offer.
Here at Luxury Flooring, all our oak is sourced from a sustainable European forestry ensuring the best quality timber whilst safeguarding the future supply and most importantly, the environment.
The grading of this engineered oak product is ABC meaning there will be some knots and natural imperfections on the surface of the planks, as you would expect with any natural wood product.
Unlike solid oak products this particular product is relatively easy to lay, as you are not required to fully bond it to the subfloor. The two most common methods of installation when it comes to engineered products would be either to lay it as a floating floor above an underlay or alternatively secret nail the floorboards directly to the wooden subfloor beneath.
If you require any matching accessories for your project, please see our accessories section above where we offer thresholds, beading and other accessories in the same lacquered finish.
If you’re looking to install solid or engineered wood flooring by hand, here are a few things to bear in mind:Tongue and Groove vs Click
Before you purchase your solid wood flooring, check which installation system it uses. There are two main types: ‘Tongue and Groove’ and ‘Click’.
• Tongue and Groove is more traditional, ensuring dimensional stability and strength. Along one edge, a ‘tongue’ protrudes from the centre of the board, whilst on the other, an indented groove is cut into the wood. This allows each board to fit together securely.
• Click installation is quick and hassle free. Like tongue and groove, click boards fit together, however, the click method allows the boards to lock into place, snapping together with a single movement.Floating
Many fitters prefer floating their boards due to quick and easy installation. Floating does not require you to fix your flooring to a subfloor. Both click and tongue and groove planks can be fitted this way.
Adhesive is applied to the groove for added stability, and underlay is fitted underneath the board. This cuts down on labour, whilst ensuring that your boards are comfortable and strong underfoot.Fixing
Fixing your flooring to the subfloor will encourage a long lifespan and minimal movement. Both Tongue and Groove and Click boards can be fitted this way, however, it is more popular with the former.
Depending on the material of your subfloor, boards can be fixed in a variety of ways. For solid surfaces such as concrete, adhesive is applied directly under the board. For wooden subfloors, the boards can be ‘secret nailed’ along the tongue. Both methods are equally beneficial, giving you outstanding results.
