The plank consists of a birch plywood backing and a top layer in the desired wood species.
The construction type described above, in the thicknesses 13mm and 14mm, can also be laid floating with proper mat or nailed on joist.
The plank consists of a 4mm balancing layer of coniferous wood or oak placed longitudinally to the top layer, an 8mm middle layer of coniferous wood placed perpendicularly to the top layer, that can be made of the desired wood species.
The construction type described here can also be laid floating with proper mat or nailed on joist.
The flexibility of our production facilities allows for the floor to be manufactured in the colour desired by the customer, thus creating a tailor-made floor. The need to make e.g. a hue that matches the furniture or even to achieve a tone not included in our standard range, make the possibility of having a bespoke colour flooring a much appreciated opportunity.
On the surface, the effect of the saw used to cut boards in the old “Venetian” type sawmills, where the blade and the log were moved by the driving force of stream water, is nowadays reproduced with modern machines.
Hand planed effect
Hand planing consists of smoothing the surface of the wood with special tools, planers, and lots and lots of effort and experience of the operator who, in an absolutely manual and artisanal way, forms the surface of the wood, thus enhancing the relationship between nature and man.
Machine planed effect
It is meant to be a reproduction of the handcrafted effect described above but obtained by means of modern equipment, that replicates, through programmed movement of tools, the skilful hand of man.
Prefinished suitable for floating installation
According to UNI 13756 (terminology), floating laying is any laying system that allows each plank to be attached to the others, though being independent of the underlying surface. All items marked with this symbol have the construction characteristics of stability and proper joining so that they can be laid in this way.
Prefinished suitable for glued installation
It is an engineered wood flooring which enables the planks to be attached to the underlying surface with adhesives.
The top layer of this prefinished flooring undergoes a heat-treatment, which actually consists of baking the wood. Depending on the baking temperature, this treatment makes the wood become darker and the colour change will involve the whole wear layer.
Prefinished with multiple width planks for irregular laying
According to the UNI EN 13756 technical standard, it is the so called “French paving”. This laying method envisages using planks of different widths, which are laid in rows that are spaced apart and parallel. It can be laid in a random manner, i.e. without a precise cadence of widths, or with a cadenced repetition (e.g. narrow-medium-large-narrow-medium-large).
For random laying, the area to be covered will be divided equally among the available widths; for staggered laying, the number of elements per width will have to be precisely quantified.
In any case, it is a laying system that stays true to the old floors of the past, when each row had a different width.
The planks that form this flooring have no bevel (chamfer) in the perimeter edge, so the finished floor looks homogeneous and devoid of the contouring that highlights the perimeter and size of the various planks.
This pattern is defined according to the UNI 13756 as “herringbone laying” or in technical jargon “Italian laying”. It is a laying method in which the parquet is formed by elements having the same sizes, heads cut at right angles and that are laid perpendicularly to each other.
30° and 45° Chevron
This pattern is defined according to UNI 13756 as “Hungarian-style paving”. It is a laying method in which the parquet is formed by elements having the same sizes, heads cut at an angle between 45° and 60°, which are laid head-to-head, forming parallel patterns.
Parquet consisting of alike elements, of which the shorter line is placed in the middle of the block above and below.
