What is the Engineered Wood
Engineered flooring consists of three layers. A top layer of solid wood measuring 1mm to 6mm in width, which is joined to thin pieces of plywood running in different directions. This gives the wood more stability as opposed to solid wood.
There are two ways engineered floor planks can be fit together. The first is the tongue and groove edges which are secretly nailed to a subfloor made of wood or can be glued down when laid onto a concrete foundation.
The second way is by using the easy-fit, click mechanism that can be installed as a moving floor to ease the installation process.
Atkinson & Kirby Contemporary Oak Flooring are a selection of traditional oak floors in a range of finishes. Each type has a click profile. They look magnificent, once they are clicked in place, there will be no gaps between each engineered board. They vary from knotty oak to prime grade lacquered oak.
The Renaissance parquet flooring collection by Atkinson & Kirby is available at GJP Flooring in Brighton. It provides a classic parquet flooring with a contemporary twist. Since all floors are prefinished they are ready to go and save time installing. Finishes may be lacquered, hand scraped and finished or brushed and lacquered.
Atkinson & Kirby’s Concept flooring are finished individually and designed to present a bespoke look. The Elite, for instance, is double brushed to elevate the grain much higher. It is also stained and finished with hardwax oils to give it a lasting and more natural finish.
