The herringbone installation of parquet floors is currently back in vogue and is propagated in many current living magazines. Typical of this herringbone installation technique is the recurring pattern, which is reminiscent of the arrangement of bones on the backbone of a fish: parquet strips of identical size are laid at right angles to each other at their ends. This creates an interesting visual effect, as the light refracts differently on the parquet strips which are at 90° to each other. This classic parquet pattern combines well with both modern and traditional styles of living.
To meet this ongoing trend, we have developed the two-layered strip Elegance by adler 600 in oak. This elegant short strip parquet has a very balanced dimension of 600 x 100 x 10 mm, giving it a well-proportioned, calm and elegant appearance. The support structure consists of high-quality, solid spruce strips. All planks are bevelled all around and the surface is machine brushed or textured.
The 2-layer parquet ELÉGANCE 600 by adler is formaldehyde-free, approved by the building authorities and complies with fire protection class Cfl-S1.
Dimensions and packaging
ELÉGANCE 600 by adler is produced in a width of 100 mm and a length of 600 mm. The parquet planks are packed in cartons of 14 planks each.
The wood selection corresponds to our factory grading "classic".
Surface treatment & colour variations
The wood structure is always machine brushed or textured and then finished with our oxidative surface treatment NATURA+ WOCA. For factory-oiled surfaces, we recommend a finish treatment with WOCA maintenance oil after installation for private or commercial use. Wood is a natural product. Depending on the ingredients in the wood and the wood grain, there may 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 600 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 an underfloor heating system, we always recommend gluing it to your screed over its 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 herringbone parquet after installation, you should care for it accordingly. You can find the care instructions in our current care instructions. You should also pay attention to 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 air 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.
