French herringbone parquet
The difference between French herringbone and classic herringbone parquet is that French herringbone parquet board ends are cut at 45 or 60 degree angle, so that a specific pattern is created after installation. Two-layer French herringbone parquet is a type of engineered flooring that consists of two layers: lower layer made of OSB, and top layer made of Oak. When compared to solid flooring, engineered flooring is less sensitive to humidity fluctuations in room air and subfloor. It ensures more stability and less risk of shrinking and cupping. Due to this, engineered flooring is suitable for installation directly on concrete subfloors, including subfloors with underfloor heating systems. Our parquet boards are installed by glue-down method and are not suitable for being installed as floating floors. Oak top layer is 3 mm thick, and it allows the flooring to be sanded several times afterwards. Two-layer French herringbone parquet boards are factory sanded and have bevels along all four edges.
Available sizes of two-layer French herringbone parquet:
12 x 135 x 400 / 535 / 670 mm (cut at 45 degree angle)
12 x 135 x 455 / 590 / 725 mm (cut at 60 degree angle)
Finishing can be done both at the factory, as well as after installation. If you prefer to have your flooring pre-finished at the factory, we offer hardwax oil or classic oil treatment in various colors. in this case, your flooring is ready to be walked on right after installation. Such finishing provides high durability and is easy to care for. For factory finishing we use hardwax oil made by German manufacturer Hesse Lignal. We use only natural and environmentally friendly products for finishing.
Some of the realized French herringbone parquet projects
French herringbone flooring boards are graded in five grades, depending on amount of knots and discoloration. However, there are no loose knots even in the lowest grades; all knots and cracks are filled with putty. The difference between grades is only visual, there are no differences in practical use. Below you can see photos of unfinished boards. Of course, any grade parquet boards can be finished in color according to customer’s choice.
