Quality European Oak engineered floorboards
Our Wessex oak floor boards are a quality engineered product, manufactured with European oak and machined in Europe. All our Wessex boards are FSC sourced, they are engineered to minimise movement in testing situations – for example, kitchens, utility rooms, rooms with under-floor heating and conservatories. We can also supply Wessex engineered oak floorboards with a UV oiled oak board finish
Wessex engineered floorboard specification
Each Wessex engineered oak board is a single strip 180mm wide and 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 can be used across timber joists as a structural floor without any sub-floor. The boards are carefully machined with micro-bevelled edges around both the long and short board edges.
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 the Wessex will provide an attractive and hardwearing floor but to finish the installation these unfinished boards require a durable finish. We recommend using a quality Hardwax-Oil hybrid such as Osmo Polyx or Treatex Hardwax. As with all types of floor surface some care needs to be taken with chairs, table legs etc. to minimise the scratching of the floor.
