Engineered Wood Flooring

Engineered wood flooring is wood which is made up of more than one layer, and it is absolutely perfect for floors, cladding and even joinery projects like special doors and tabletops. By placing each layer so that the grain runs at 90° to those on either side, it becomes virtually impossible for the wood to swell or shrink with changes in humidity, and so dramatically increases the wood's stability.

The top layer of an engineered wood flooring board is known as the wear layer or lamella. This is solid wood, usually hardwood, and may be anything from 2 to 6mm thick; obviously the thicker the surface layer the more times it can be sanded and refinished to remove the ravages of wear. The thickest wear layers are equivalent to that above the tongue on a traditional solid wood tongue and groove board, meaning that it will wear equally as well. The lamella is securely bonded to one or two further layers - this may be a multi-layered plywood or a sandwich with differing combinations of softwood and hardwood cores and bases.

Engineered wood flooring is now the most common type of wood flooring used globally and the technology has enabled the production of much wider boards. The vast majority of our engineered wood may happily be fitted over underfloor heating. Engineered wood should not be confused with laminate or veneer. Laminate uses an image of wood on its surface whilst veneer uses only a very thin layer of wood over a core of some type of composite wood product, usually fibreboard.

​Finally, since most engineered wood flooring boards are also pre-finished, they come in an enormous variety of really interesting finishes, as you will see here. Obviously this makes for an ecologically sound proposition since, in addition to reducing the amount of slow growth hardwood needed for every plank, the wide variety of exciting finishes produced from readily available oak has significantly reduced demand for exotic tropical hardwoods.
