WHAT IS ENGINEERED WOOD FLOORING?

Engineered wood flooring is a collective name for wooden floors that are composed of several layers. The top layer, also called visible side or wear layer, consists of solid wood. The base layer or underside can be made from a cross-glued plywood.

Uipkes' layered floor consists of two layers: a solid wooden top layer of 2, 4 or 6mm. The base layer or underside is made of a cross-glued Birch plywood. The layers are glued together water-tight and compressed under great pressure into a whole.

EIKEN TOPLAAG

De toplaag bestaat over het algemeen uit eikenhout maar is ook leverbaar in andere houtsoorten, zoals robijn, jatoba of notenhout. Eiken lamelparket kunnen we leveren met toplagen van 3 mm, 4mm of 6 mm. Deze keuze bestaat alleen in eikenhout.

LAMELPARKET OF MULTIPLANK?

De term lamelplank of lamelparket kan ook verwijzen naar gelaagde vloeren die voornamelijk afkomstig zijn uit China. Deze lamelplanken zijn vaak goedkopere gelaagde planken met 3 lagen, die vaak minder duurzaam geproduceerd zijn:

  • De toplaag is soms samengesteld uit meerdere eikensoorten en van spinthout gemaakt, waardoor de houttekening minder mooi kan zijn.
  • De basislaag is gemaakt van dwarsliggende houten lamellen, waarvan de kwaliteit minder is dan Berkenmultiplex.
  • Tenslotte is de lijm die wordt gebruikt vaak niet goed bestand tegen water waardoor lagen op den duur kunnen loslaten. Dit zijn allemaal factoren die de van invloed zijn op de levensduur en kwaliteit van de lamelparketvloer.

ADVANTAGES OF UIPKESĀ® ENGINEERED WOOD FLOORS

Our engineered floors Vincent, Floor and Robin have many advantages over other types of wooden floors and floor coverings:

  • Birch plywood is a very stable carrier and ensures that parquet flooring is ideal for underfloor heating, in contrast to solid wood floors. The stable base layer ensures that the working of the wood is minimal. In addition, Uipkes' layered floors have a low resistance (Rc).
  • This parquet floor can be installed floating. This results in a noise reduction with a maximum of 11 dB, which means that parquet flooring is also suitable for apartments that have to comply with a noise standards.
  • Uipkes engineered wood floors with a top layer of 4mm or larger can be re-sanded and finished with oil. So the floor lasts a lifetime!
  • Parquet flooring requires less hardwood than solid wood flooring and is therefore better for the environment.

LAMELPARKET PRIJS

De prijs van lamelparket is afhankelijk van diverse factoren. Houdt hier rekening mee als je een houten vloer wilt kopen:

  1. De eerste factor is het land van productie. Komt het lamelparket uit een zogenaamd 'lage lonenland' of wordt deze in Nederland gemaakt?
  2. Van welke houtsoort is de zichtzijde van de lamelplank gemaakt: van een zachtere houtsoort of wellicht een exclusiever houtsoort?
  3. Het plaatmateriaal waar de toplaag uit opgebouwd is kan uit vele verschillende onderlagen geproduceerd worden. Koop je een plaat die gemaakt is van afval of gebruik je een geschikte toplaag gemaakt van duurzame materialen met de mooiste houttekening?
  4. De dikte van de toplaag van het lamelparket is een belangrijke prijsonderscheidende factor.
  5. De breedte en de lengte van de vloerdelen is sterk van invloed op de prijs.
  6. Hoeveel knoesten zitten er wel of niet in de vloer? De houtsortering, zoals  Frans eikenrustiek Frans eiken of classique Frans eiken, is een prijsfactor.
