When laid, an ELKA real wood floor is virtually indistinguishable from a solid wood floor. This is thanks to the product's unique structure, which includes a generous surface layer of between 2.2mm and 6mm of real wood, making it possible for some engineered floors to be sanded and refinished.
The strength of each board comes from three or more layers of wood laid in opposite directions. This helps to avoid any issues with contraction and expansion, making it a perfect choice for use in areas where traditional hardwood flooring cannot be used, such as conservatories or in conjunction with underfloor heating. The simplicity of it's construction makes it perfect for use in DIY projects and thanks to it's strength, it can easily be installed as a floating floor.
ELKA have introduced some UV oiled wood floors to their engineered range. Advances in UV cure technology have resulted in a finish that is more versatile, hardwearing and easier to maintain whilst retaining the natural aesthetic look of the wood. Oiled wood floors require an intermittent maitenance programme. Cleaning the floor with ELKA Clean and applying a coat of Elka Protect Oil at least once a year won't just remove scuffs and scratches, but will improve it's durability and it will also restore your floor to that vibrant piece of nature you fell in love with first time round.
A choice of 4 designs all with a UV Brushed Matt Lacquered finish and 2.2mm real wood wear layer. With the added confience of knowing that your floor has full certification from the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) which means that the materials used to manufacture the floor were sourced from a sustained forest.
A lovely little selection of 11 decors including 2 Herringbone designs. Depending on the effect of the decor they come with either a 4-sided bevel or a 2-sided bevel (only on the long edge of each board). All come with a 3mm wear layer and 7 decors in the range are available exclusively with the patented Uniclic joining system for ease of installation. The other 4 decors in the range come with a tongue and groove joining system and are primarily designed for secret nailing or full stick down to your subfloor (please refer to the installation instructions). All the decors in the range are also suitable for use with underfloor heating.
A range of 4 decors to provide choice and variety for both modern and traditional settings. Each decor has a 4mm wear layer and a 4 sided bevel to each board. They all come with random length boards between 400mm and 1800mm in length. Suitable for use with an embedded underfloor heating system and with excellent thermal and acoustic properties these decors will enhance any room in your home.
A choice of 6 decors in a range of finishes that will enhance your home. These structural engineered boards are load bearing and as such these floors can be fixed directly to joists. With excellent thermal and acoustic properties these floors can be laid over embedded underfloor heating. With a 4mm wear layer on the 20mm floors and a 6mm wear layer on the 21mm floors these can be resanded, but hopefully with everyday care and attention these floors will enhance your home for many years to come
