Elka’s 14mm engineered flooring is a practical product, chosen for its durability, flexibility of installation and overall stability. It mimics a solid wood floor, but is constructed with a 3mm wear layer over a spruce and eucalyptus multi ply. These engineered oak floorboards can be used in most areas of the home including conservatories and in conjunction with embedded underfloor heating systems.
These oak boards are manufactured from mixed European oak sources. Because the flooring is made from a natural product there will be variations in grain and colour among the boards in each pack, with light brown heartwood and creamy white sapwood. All boards are tongue and grooved all round and there is a 1mm micro bevel on long and short edges. The softer grain in the oak is removed during the brushing process and this gives a textured surface to the boards.
These 14mm boards are 189mm wide and feature a 3mm oak wear layer over a eucalyptus and spruce multi ply. These engineered oak boards are supplied in 2.81 square metre packs, each pack comprises approximately 70% of board length 1860mm and up to 30% of each flooring pack will be starter boards of 600mm or greater length. Because these boards are 14mm thick they must be fitted over 18mm ply or chipboard when being fixed over floor joists.
Installation options are floating using a D3 adhesive over an underlay incorporating a DPM ; glued onto a wooden or concrete sub-floor, or nailed to wooden sub-floor or joists. When ordering your floor and calculating your requirements please allow at least 10% for wastage and should be ordered by the square metres rather than the number of packs.
Elka brushed and oiled engineered boards provide an attractive, hard wearing flooring solution for all types and ages of property. The boards are supplied ready coated, we supply a range of cleaning and maintenance products for the floor and easy to apply Treatex or Osmo hard wax oil finishes.

Last, but not least, the product comes complete with a 25 year domestic structural guarantee. These boards must never be installed in bathrooms, it is also not suitable or guaranteed for use in electric matting installations.
