Particularly noble: Deluxe floorboards made of Oak
Highlighting your individuality, also in your style of living
Oak is a truly multi-faceted and interesting timber. It may be processed in many ways, with each technique generating its own, fascinating appearance of the wood. We also make use of this fact in our prestige product Château by adler. Our staff will, with top precision and craftsmanship, create customised Deluxe floorboards featuring a variety of exquisite surfaces. We also create special surfaces to suit your particular needs.
We will to the best of our ability strive to meet the wishes of our customers whilst remaining within natures boundaries of the natural raw material of Oak. We produce tailored Oak floorboards to match your room dimensions or in different lengths and in fixed or varying widths. We also offer you different grades – ranging from particularly uniform with fewer knots to wild and rustic.
Whether shaped by machine or by hand, every top quality floorboard will be given its individual character. Our sawn-cut or hand-scraped surfaces carry the “Made by hand by Adler in Dirlewang” seal of quality.
And, by the way, we also primarily use Oak originating from PEFC or FSC certified and sustainably managed forests in Southern Germany for our noble Deluxe floorboards.
Colour range, Oak Château flooring
Select the hue to optimally suit your personal preference and your way of life from the wide variety of colours available. We will gladly advise you on your selection.
Please note: Pictures are not binding, since they can only approximate the actual colour and texture of the parquet. Wood is a natural product. Surface colour and texture will depend on the specific characteristics of the wood and the unique properties of each tree.
Something you should also know about our Oak Deluxe floorboards
Oak long floorboards contain no additional formaldehyde and have general technical building authority approval. It complies with fire protection class Cfl-S1.
See below for much more useful information. For further technical details, please refer to PDF document “Technical Product Data Sheet”, available for download at our Infothek.
The Oak floorboards are 19 millimetres thick. The top layer is made of 4.5 millimetre thick sawcut Oak veneer. Floorboard widths and lengths are available with various options: in widths of 180 to 350 millimetres and, on request, also in fixed widths, i.e. a single width. Floorboard lengths measure from 1.8 to 5.0 metres. We can also produce lengths up to 10.8 metres for you, to suit the length of your room.
You will normally receive “Château by adler” Oak floorboards graded “Standard”. We can also on request offer you a selection with fewer knots. Please contact us in this respect.
The timber for the long and wide Deluxe floorboards may exhibit slight cracks as a result of shrinkage and wind stress. The large dimensions and natural shrinkage may also encourage minor surface cracks due to stress and drying.
Most surfaces have a machine brush-finished wood texture which we will refine using the NATURA+ oxidative surface treatment. Some floorboards will moreover be finished with a scrub plane by hand. These scrubbed surfaces have a particularly individual character.
Wood is a natural product. Colour deviations should therefore be expected, especially on stained surfaces. Colour pigments may produce varying hues, depending on the substances contained in the wood and the grain of the specific wood. These colour variations may occur between different batches but also in a single batch.
Smoking of the Oak, be it only lightly or to the core, may also produce light to dark colour variations as a result of natural Oak tannins. These individual colours are distinctive and certify the authenticity of the natural timber product wood.
The Deluxe floorboard comprises 3 layers with 19 millimetres overall thickness. The large widths and lengths will require full spread gluing.
The thermal resistance of the multi-layered Deluxe floorboards is ca. 0.16 m²k / W (as per EN14342), thus rendering it suitable for laying on hot water underfloor heating
Maximum surface temperatures of 26°C should not be exceeded. Please refer to our laying instructions under Downloads and information provided under “All about Parquets” for comprehensive guidelines on laying on underfloor heating.
Your high grade and customised Oak floorboards will demand special care if you wish to enjoy your floor for years to come. [link to All about Parquets / Proper care with NATURA+]
Always ensure that your ambient room conditions remain healthy to ensure both your own health and that of your parquet floor. Relative humidity of ca. 50 – 60% and room temperatures between 19 and 22°C would be ideal. Your wooden floor may be damaged unless these guideline values are maintained. The danger of drying out exists especially during heating periods, potentially causing shrinkage cracks in the worst case. Normally such cracks will, however, largely close up again as the room climate improves. The glued layers may also experience shrinkage stress in the event of sudden moisture change.
As an option, we can also offer you our Oak Deluxe floorboards as a 100% PEFC certified parquet. Depending on the wood sources we also might be able to offer a FSC® certified product. Please contact us in this respect.
