Engineered European Oak Flooring – Technical Specification

 

Your Engineered European Oak Flooring is milled and manufactured in Central Europe to the highest possible standard and finished completely by Hand in England by Craftsmen using traditional techniques.

Our engineered Oak is made up from a top layer of European Oak bonded to high quality Birch plywood to ensure the product is very stable and also suitable for underfloor heating systems (assuming standard guidelines are met).

There can be some elements of tension between the 2 elements of an engineered board which can create some bowing along the length, this is perfectly normal. The product is still suitable for installation if the bowing is within the allowed tolerance detailed within this section as correct fitment will ensure that the boards sit flat when installed.
