Solid Wooden Floors
Solid wooden floors as the name suggests are made from solid pieces of natural wood. The thicknesses range from 8mm for the mosaic parquet to 20mm for the T&G strip flooring.
Solid wooden floors are supplied in two types i.e.
A) Unfinished-these require to be sanded and sealed (finished) on site after installation.
B) Prefinished-these are ready for use soon after installation, they do not require further work.
As technology has evolved so has wooden flooring installation moved with it. The
Elastilon system is basically a reinforced rubber mat that acts as an underlay
and an adhesive, bonding the flooring together and allowing it to move as a unit
during expansion and contraction of the wood. This system of installation
creates a “floating floor” and is the preferred method for prefinished floors
and is also ideal for all types of floors.
By far the most commonly used wooden flooring system. Mostly used when installing unfinished floors that will require sanding and sealing. The glue down system creates a fixed floor that has limited movement. It works better in low humidity climate
This is the oldest way of installing wooden floors. The floor will have a hollow sound and is used mostly with softer timber species
