Construction of Engineered Timber
The board is engineered in layers – 4mm solid hardwood top layer, 8mm solid hardwood core and a 2mm timber bottom layer ensuring optimal dimensional stability. “Quickstep Readyflor” Engineered Timbers are a floating floor construction, meaning the floorboards lock together securely with the patented Uniclic profile to form a platform that simply sits over a sub floor under its own weight without the use of adhesive or nails.
As timber is hygroscopic it can be prone to expand or contract due to uptake or shedding of moisture due variations in Humidity. Adelaide climate experiences huge seasonal variations in humidity, which can exacerbate timber movement, but due the construction of “Quickstep Readyflor” Engineered Timber any movement due to Adelaide’s climatic extremes is greatly minimized
“Quickstep Readyflor” Engineered Timber is factory pre-finished with 7 coats of tough S.R.T. UV cured, German made, urethane coatings, giving maximum resistance to wear and tear. Engineered timber can be re-sanded and re-finished as necessary, in the same way as traditional solid timber.
A special 2mm thick closed cell foam underlay with added vapour barrier is laid under the floating floor which helps absorbs sound and softens the feel to walk on. “Quietstep” acoustic underlay is also available which reduces sound even more.
