American Black Walnut is grown in Eastern North America. The colour ranges from a lighter yellowish brown to a dark chocolate brown.
This Multilayer Walnut is 18mm thick (4mm top layer of Walnut), 150mm wide and has random length boards of 400-1800mm long. The floor has smooth Lacquer finish. The Rustic Grade means there are knots and some colour variation including lighter sap wood areas which occurs in Walnut.
The most common methods of installation for multilayer floors (18mm – 22mm thick) is either Floating and Glue Down. However, ESB recommend that any multilayer floor that is 220mm wide or wider should be Glued Down.
Always use a professional floor fitter to install your floor and always make sure the sub-floor is smooth, level and sturdy.
