Fire Protection: Reaction to fire – wood flooring performs to EN 13501-1 Dn s1
Thermal Conductivity: EN ISO 10456 and EN ISO 12664 Result 0.15 W/(mk)
Moisture Content: EN 13183 – 1 Requirement: 6% to 9% Average Results: <7% Thermal Conductivity: EN ISO 10456 / EN ISO 12664 Result 0.15 W / (mk)
Release of Formaldehyde: Class E1 | EN 717 – 1:2006 Result 0.014 mg / m3 Requirement: Less than 3 ppm Result: 0.0053 ppm
Slip Resistance: Tested to BS 7967-2: 2002 (Pendulum Test in PTV values) UV Oiled Finish results: DRY (60) LOW RISK WET (45) LOW RISK There is no current requirement for slip resistance in residential developments.
Suitability of use: Suitable for use with under floor heating in commercial and residential applications.
Effects from moisture: Wood flooring will expand if it is exposed to conditions that increases its moisture content beyond 9%. Wood flooring will contract if the prevailing conditions reduce the product moisture content below 6%. Any exposure outside of these parameters will compromise the performance of the product.
Transmission of Sound: Wood flooring on its own will offer some assistance to reduce the passage of sound, but it is the build-up of the whole floor and the surroundings that contribute to impact and airborne sound. For accurate assessment’s a qualified engineer should be employed to calculate how to achieve accurate results.
Thermal properties: Solid Wood Flooring boards offer the following values: 20mm thick boards with a 4mm or 6mm top layer will lose 0.10 K/Wm2 15mm boards with a 4mm or 6mm top layer will lose 0.08 K/Wm2
Manufacturing: Engineered floors are manufactured in accordance with accepted industry standards, which permit a tolerance not to exceed 5%. The variations may be of a manufacturing or natural type (this does not include colour variation).
