Wood is a living and fascinating material, multifaceted and unique in every piece. Just think of the different brown shades of oak, from naturally light to dark brown when the wood has been smoked. Of noble walnut with its rich, warm dark brown or the fiery bright red of a cherry tree. Each type of wood has its own character and thus underlines your individual living style.
We process these diverse, noble hardwoods in our short ELÉGANCE plank by adler. The format of this short, two-layer parquet plank is 1090 x 130 x 10 mm, the wear layer is approx. 4 mm. The carrier material consists of high-quality, solid spruce sticks. Depending on the type of wood, we can offer you one or two assortments. The planks are manufactured without a bevel, i.e. with a sharp, smooth edge. Our naturally warm, yet hard-wearing NATURA+ oil finish gives ELÉGANCE by adler the finishing touch. Some products are also available lacquered.
The 2-layer parquet ELÉGANCE by adler is formaldehyde-free and approved by the building authorities. It complies with fire protection class Dfl-S1 - all oak planks even comply with the higher class Cfl-S1.
Dimensions and packaging
ELÉGANCE by adler is produced in a width of 130 mm and a length of 1090 mm. The parquet planks are packed in cartons of 12 planks each.
Most of the wood species we offer are available in a very quiet premium grade and a slightly knottier "standard" grade. Some species also contain sapwood.
Surface treatment & colour variations
The basis of our surface treatment is our NATURA+ WOCA oiled oxidative oil surface. The short plank in oak is also available in our UV-cured acrylic lacquer finish. We recommend a finish treatment with WOCA maintenance oil for the factory-oiled surfaces after installation for private or commercial use. Wood is a natural product. Depending on the ingredients in the wood and the wood grain, there can always be colour variations in colour-treated surfaces. These colour differences can occur between different product batches, but also within one product batch. This applies in particular to coloured surfaces, as smoking, staining, lyes and the application of colour pigments can lead to different colour shades due to the wood structure. However, this is a testimony to the authenticity of the natural product "wood".
Installation & underfloor heating
The short plank ELÉGANCE by adler has a two-layer structure and must be glued down over the entire surface. Due to its 2-layer construction, this type of parquet is predestined for installation on warm water-based underfloor heating. The thermal resistance of this product is approx. 0.079 to 0.090 m²k / W (according to EN14342). Should you wish to install this ELÉGANCE by adler wood plank on underfloor heating, we always recommend gluing it to your screed over the entire surface. The maximum surface temperature of 23°C to 28°C should not be exceeded. For the exact guidelines for installation on underfloor heating, please refer to the installation instructions.
Care & indoor climate
To ensure that you get a lot of pleasure from your ELÉGANCE by adler short plank after installation, it should be cared for appropriately. The lacquered version must also be cared for properly. You will find the care instructions in our current care instructions. You should also ensure a healthy room climate for your parquet, which is made of the living natural material "wood", but also for you. This exists at a relative humidity of approx. 40 to 60% and a pleasant room temperature of 19 to 22°C. If you do not adhere to these guideline values, your wooden floor can suffer great damage.
ELÉGANCE -2-layer planks can be produced as FSC 100% certified parquet on request. Please always ask specifically before placing an order whether certified raw material is available.
