Parquet strip - Technical specifications

Structure: Veneer composed of strips of approximately 1 to 3 mm veneer of end grain wood and wood with the grain, glued crosswise, of approximately 4.5 mm (floor) or 2.5 mm (wall and ceiling) thickness, glued onto one side of a substrate, with tongue and groove


Length: Maximum length 1200 mm, tolerance profiled 0.2 - 0.3 %


Width: Maximum width 135 mm, tolerance profiled 0.2 - 0.3 %


Thickness: Minimum thickness 13.5 mm (floor) or 11.5 mm (wall and ceiling), tolerance sanded ± 0.2 mm


Squareness: ± 1 mm per meter


Density: Depending on the kind of wood, 400 - 800 kg/m³


Dimensional stability: According to NEN-EN 318 measured by the SHR RC 2115 at climate variations
Standard climate 20 ± 2 ºC and 65 ± 5 % RH
Dry 20 ± 2 ºC and 35 ± 5 % RH
Humid 20 ± 2 ºC and 85 ± 5 % RH
Result: Dependent on kind of wood
Lengthwise (direction of the lines) ≤ 0.1 %
Crosswise (width direction, direction square to the lines) ≤ 2 %
Thicknesswise (in the thickness direction) no measurable result


Hardness: Janka hardness scale rating according to ISO 3350, 1975 08 01, measured by the SHR RC 2115

Wear resistance with oil/wax finish: Wear resistance according to NEN-EN 438-2, ISO 4586-2, 1988, measured by the SHR RC 2115-2
Test samples are treated with oil/wax Berger Seidle High Solid, and measured using the Taber® Abrasion Tester, thickness reduction which occurs after 2000 Cycles (not in conformance with norm) is, dependent on the kind of wood, 0.23 - 0.48 mm


Wear resistance with varnish finish: Wear resistance according to NEN-EN 438-2, ISO 4586-2, 1988, measured by the SHR RC 2115-2
Test samples are treated with varnish Berger Seidle Aqua-Seal 2K-PU matt, and measured using the Taber® Abrasion Tester to Final Wear Point, result is, dependent on the kind of wood, 225 - 550 Cycles


Tensile strength: Measured perpendicularly according to NEN-EN 319 by the SHR RC 2115
Bonding of Plexwood ≥ 1.01 N/mm², the glue used by Plexwood meets quality D4 according to NEN-EN 204


Wood properties: Wood is not static, has a high electrical resistance (1 - 1000 MΩ), and a small heat conductivity (0.11 - 0.16 W/m²K) of which the effect is that it slows down the spreading of fire (source: Wood Vademecum; Wood Centre Foundation [Hout Vademecum; Stichting Centrum Hout], Almere 2001, pages 46, 48)
