Solid Overlay Timber Flooring

Solid Overlay Timber Flooring

Solid overlay timber flooring is a product designed for applications where the beauty, style, and warmth of a solid timber floor is important, but there are limitations on the area’s sub-floor or the application requires a floor thinner than traditional solid structural timber flooring. The reason solid overlay timber flooring can achieve a thinner board thickness is because it is only designed to be installed directly over a flat, structural and well-supported surface such as existing timber floors, or plywood on concrete.

Thanks to the unique profile, the wear or sanding thickness of an overlay timber floor is not compromised by the thinner board thickness. This specialised design enables solid overlay floorboards to retain the same wear thickness as traditional solid timber floors.

Solid Overlay timber flooring and Wideboard Solid Overlay timber flooring are essentially the same in design, with the difference being the individual ‘Wideboard’ floorboards are much wider giving a bolder appearance. Some of the key features and benefits of overlay solid hardwood timber floors are:

• Thinner boards (14mm), perfect for renovations or refurbishments where existing floors are in place
• Long lasting, hard wearing and easy to maintain
• Installation over existing timber, sheet floor and concrete*
• Can be re-stained to change the floor colour
• A renewable resource with a low manufacturing environment impact
