Three layer structure
All of the components of 14 mm thick ParlaFix parquet board are real wood. Parquet board is composed of three mutually supporting layers. The construction is developed durable and particularly in a way to counteract warping. The dimensional stability of ParlaFix parquet board is improved also by contolling the moisture characteristics optimally in the manufacturing process.
The hardwood surface of Parla-parquet mainly highlights the natural beauty of wood and its outstanding and individualistic design. The surface layer determines in many respect durability and life span of the parquet floor. The middle and bottom layers are made from selected Nordic softwood. In the north wood grows slowly and sturdily which makes wood good quality and strong. The grain in the middle layer of the parquet board is vertical improving the parquet´s durability and preventing shape changes. Bottom layer of spruce veneer gives support to the entire structure. Skilfully made parquet does not warp or bend.
Oak is among the world’s oldest and most popular timbers used in interiors. Its hard and heavy wood is excellent in application requiring great strength and durability. Oak´s yellowish-white sapwood is readily distinguishable from the darker heartwood. The grain pattern is clear and readily observable on a dressed piece of wood. A floor made of oak-wood may become a little darker as a result of the impact of sunlight. We import our oak-wood mainly from Hungary, Poland and Lithuania.
