These herringbone small blocks come from the long tradition of parquet floors and are fitted in a traditional herringbone formation but at a more contemporary oversized scale which works in all spaces big and small.
Blocks engineered with a 4 mm refinished oak wear layer with bevelled edges bonded to a hardwood play base, which means they can be bonded to any flat surface including over low energy underfloor heating systems. They are finished with coloured oil and coats of natural UV oil.
This floor has a Tongue and Groove joining system and it should be glued down. We have two main recommendations when it comes to installing your wood floor. Always ask a professional floor fitter to install your floor and always make sure the sub-floor is smooth, level and sturdy. For more information and further guidance please contact ESB or see our FAQ article Installation of 14mm and 15mm Engineered Flooring.
This wooden floor has a UV Oiled finish. A UV Oiled finish is more practical than a Natural Oiled finish in that you do not need to apply another coat of oil once the floor is installed. A UV Oiled floor needs the same level of care and maintenance as a lacquered floor. ESB Flooring stock cleaning and maintenance products by Blanchon. UV Oiled floors are very easy to clean; simply vacuum or sweep and then mop with a special floor cleaner or eco-friendly floor cleaner. But make sure your mop is not too wet; it must be very slightly damp. For more information on cleaning this UV oiled wood floor please see our article "Cleaning and Maintenance for Natural and UV Oiled Floors".
