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).
Engineered wood flooring is a natural product and on its own offers no recognisable health and safety risks. When re-manufacturing any wood product please follow HSE advice.
A generic product of this type would correspond to Element Number 1321580001 of the BRE Green Guide 2008 ratings and achieve a rating of A+. The actual Kg/m2 achieved will be dependent on the type of fitting chosen. The Solid Wood Flooring Company recommend that as a basis for achieving this result all fitting must conform to BS8201:2011
