- Technical information
STAKI engineered floors are made from natural materials and designed in such a way as to delight you with a great appearance and real oak warmth for as long as possible. Each parquet board is carefully coated with LED oil or varnish for maximum protection against scratches or environmental influences. This information will also help you to take the best possible care of your floors.
Maintain indoor humidity level between 45-55% all year round, for solid of flooring.
For regular cleaning, use only specialized floor cleaning products, which not only clean the dirt, but also protects lacquered or oiled flooring surfaces. We recommend "Saicos Wash care" floor cleaner.
Maintain indoor humidity level between 40-60% all year round, for 2-ply hardwood engineered parquet.
Cover the hardwood flooring surfaces with polish or wax (we recommend "Saicos wax care" ), which protects the floor surface from minor mechanical damage and moisture. Especially during the winter season.
Maintain indoor temterature differences, hold +18 ± 4 º C temperature.
At the entrance of the field must be laid a rug, that protects floors from dirt and moisture.
Dust and dirt should be collected with a vacuum cleaner, using a special tip for the wooden flooring, to prevent damage to the surface.
The feet of furniture must be secured with special padding, that standing furniture coudn't damage the wooden floor surface.
The wooden flooring clean just with a damp, soft cloth. Spilled liquid on the hardwood flooring as soon as possible to remove it, do not let the stain soak into the wood surface.
Taking care of your pet's nails, to avoid the scratches the surface of the flooring.
Do not wash the hardwood flooring with water! The excess water can soak into the floor and it's potential impact on their deformation, can occur stains on the oiled or waxed flooring surface.
Protect the floor from direct sunlight, which can fade the color of the surface.
What should you know about Engineered Oak flooring?
Our team of specialists uses both traditional and advanced technologies, processing a durable oak in modern ways to create special, durable, and unique floors. Staki engineered floor stand out as an excellent choice for heated floors because they are durable, stable and have excellent thermal conductivity. These floors are made from natural materials and are therefore allergy-free.
Engineered floors are two-layer parquet flooring, manufactured by industrial gluing natural oak and veneer. The upper layer of STAKI parquet board is 4 or 6 mm thick, single-stripe oak panel (lamella). The natural surface of wood gives a pleasant feeling of warmth to your feet. This layer wears off slowly over the years, so the thicker it is, the more times you can grind the floor. To make the floor last longer, it is covered with varnish or oil. Varnish forms a protective layer that prevents the floor from scratching and wearing. Meanwhile, oil is absorbed into the wood, filling the surface pores, increasing the resistance of the parquet to environmental factors and enhancing the natural beauty of the wood.
Staki engineered floors are treated only with natural LED oil, without volatile solvents. We have a wide range of oiled and varnished floors, where interior designers will find shades suitable for different styles.
The second layer is a multi-layered birch veneer. Birch veneer is strong, sturdy, moisture-resistant and provides excellent sound insulation. The veneer is made of many layers of birch shell, glued and pressed together so that the wood grain does not coincide. For this reason, if the temperature or humidity changes, the floor will not expand in one direction and thus looks like new for longer. It is because of the stability of the veneer that you can safely choose wider engineered floor without worrying about warping. STAKI makes 180 and 220 mm wide engineered flooring. The engineered boards have bevel cuts along edges, which highlight each connected board. Engineered floor can be mounted with wood screws on a wooden base or glued directly to the concrete. No additional underlay is used for the installation of the engineered flooring.
What engineered flooring can be laid on the heated floor?
These wooden floors are often used for heated floors due to their excellent thermal conductivity. When choosing a flooring with a heated floor system, it is very important that the thermal resistance of the flooring does not exceed 0.15 m²K/W. The lower the thermal resistance, the better the floor transfers heat to the environment. STAKI recommends choosing 15.5 mm thick engineered floor with a thermal resistance of only 0.09 m²K/W. To lay oak engineered flooring on a heated underlay, it is necessary to ensure that the heat is evenly distributed over the entire floor area. In addition, the amplitude of temperature changes should be small. The recommended limit of temperature change is 2-4°C per day, regardless of whether you increase or decrease the floor temperature. With the heating on, the temperature of the wooden floor surface should never exceed +27 °C.
