What is an engineered floor?

An engineered wood floor is a wood floor consisting of several layers. The top layer, also called visible side or wear layer is made of solid wood. The base or bottom layer is made of a cross-bonded birch plywood. The layers are glued with one another and waterproof compressed under great pressure into a whole. The top layer is finished with a wear-resistant oil layer in any color you desire.

Birch Plywood is a very stable support and ensures that parquet is ideal for underfloor heating, unlike solid wood floors. This parquet can be installed using the floating method. This achieves a noise reduction of up to 11 dB, making this parquet also suitable for apartments that must meet a certain noise standard.

The top layer is usually from oak but is also available in ruby, jatoba or walnut. When we supply oak parquet it has a top layer of 2 mm, 4 mm or 6 mm. This choice only exists in oak wood.
