The method we use for grading our wood flooring is unique to us and more selective than the industry standard. There are BS standards for grading timber which is BS EN 942 and numerous others.

Wood Flooring Specification Guide

When specifying our wood flooring you should state that any substituted wood flooring should conform to the same stringent requirements, to ensure that inferior products are not supplied which could compromise the integrity of the installation. Normal contracts state that no change to the specification can be made without the approval of the architect.

Wooden Floors & Underfloor Heating

All of our engineered timber flooring can be used with underfloor heating systems (UFH). However, the importance of controlling the surface temperature and that the subfloor meets the industry standards cannot be emphasised enough. We have a constructed a timetable for you to progress through that includes the commissioning the ‘UFH’ system as well as acclimatisation of hardwood flooring. It also discusses methods of installing the wood floor and ongoing maintenance. We have also listed potential pitfalls with underfloor heating and wood flooring as well as various options for installation. This document outlines the vital procedures for ensuring you get the best from both your UFH system and your timber floor.
