The Forest Oak is a stunning classic medium oak solid wood flooring product, which has been elegantly finished with multiple layers of UV pearl satin lacquer protecting the natural oak surface from any day to day usage. A lacquered surface works particularly well if any liquids are spilled, as this finish holds the liquid on top of the surface not allowing any water to seep into the grain leaving any marks; however as this is a natural product we would always advise you to mop up any spillages or splashes as quickly as possible.
This natural product will showcase some knots and imperfections as the grading of this product is ABC, often know as rustic. The rustic grade is by far the most popular wood flooring grade simply because knots are one of the main attractions when purchasing solid wood. All our solid oak timber is sourced from local European countries as this allows us to offer consistency and continuity on all our products, so if you require more material later on down the line, you can rest assured the same quality will be provided. As we source the highest quality timber this allows us to offer a 25 year manufacturers guarantee on all our solid and engineered flooring products.
The plank width of this lacquered flooring product is 125mm (12.5cm) wide which is deemed as a standard width in solid wood flooring, making it ideal for both large and small rooms. The total plank thickness is 18mm (18cm) making it possible for you to sand and refinish the product approximately seven times. Once you have sanded down the top layer you would then need to apply a few more coats of pearl satin lacquer to achieve the previous finish.
The joining system on this lacquered oak flooring is tongue and groove giving you a few different installation options such as; a floating floor where you simply glue the tongue and groove and then allow the floor to float, secret nail, where you nail through the tongue into a wooden sub floor or fully stick the flooring to the sub floor using an adhesive. Which ever option you decide to proceed with we would always recommend you make sure the sub floor is level prior to installation.
