Quality Oak engineered flooring
These Wessex oak boards represent a high quality engineered product, manufactured with FSC sourced European oak and machined in Europe. Wessex engineered flooring is designed to minimise movement in difficult situations, e.g. rooms with under-floor heating and conservatories.
Wessex engineered floorboard specification
Using European oak each single strip board is 180mm wide (other widths available to order) and is end-matched, i.e. tongue & grooved on all four sides, to minimise wastage. These boards are machined in Europe with a generous 6mm oak wear layer and are laminated to a top quality 14mm birch ply. The boards are 20mm thick and they are carefully machined with micro-bevelled edges around the long and short board edges. We maintain brushed & oiled boards in stock, usually along with some unfinished stock. Available to order are Cathedral, lacquered, Toffee and prime unfinished boards.
Board pack sizes
Each pack of 1.584 square metres contains two boards at a full 2.2 metres, 2 boards at 1.1 metres, plus a 700mm and a 1500mm board to make up the pack. When ordering your floor and calculating your requirements please allow at least 10% for wastage and remember to place your order in square meters not the number of packs!
Your oak floor boards should be stored on-site to condition before laying, all wet trades work must have finished and all surfaces dried out. After fitting we normally recommend the floor is finished with one more coat of Treatex or Osmo hard wax oil to provide an attractive and hardwearing floor, but as with all floors care must be taken with chairs, table legs etc. to minimise the scratching of the floor.
