Engineered ash flooring combines the modern technique of creating beautiful, sturdy and yet easy-to-install engineered floors with the beauty of ash wood. The tree itself is a native of Britain and has been used as a traditional source of building and flooring materials for centuries. Yet the modern application of it loses nothing of the clean, simple beauty of this pale yet highly attractive wood.
These engineered floors come with a slightly golden tint, which is topped with satin lacquer, a material that coats the floor in a way that produces a beautiful sheen which subtly reflects light in the room.
These ash floors have 15 mm thick planks, while the width is 139 mm. However, the board lengths are random and vary between 400 mm and 2,000 mm to provide a touch of eccentric styling to your ash flooring.
Some of these engineered floors have bevelled edges, also known as v-grooves. These produce a more pronounced join between the planks, giving the floor as a whole a more dynamic and modern look.
The wood used in this ash flooring is also a selected grade that contains all the markings that ash manifests, with swirls, rings and knots giving the floor a striking yet entirely natural pattern.

The wood itself used by Florence is a delightful pale shade and the presence of rings, swirls and knots is prominent. Buyers can also choose between standard planking of 130 mm width and three strip 207 mm wide planks, with the latter having shorter slats in the planks that differ from each other in appearance and pattern, with these overlapping all across the floor in the manner of bricks in a wall.
Florence products all come with 14 mm thickness and have a 30-year warranty. These lengthy guarantee periods should ensure you have a great sense of security that the floors are expected to last for many years without any problems and that, even if something does go wrong, it will be covered.
There are two systems in common use for assembling engineered floors, these being tongue and groove and click systems. In both cases, these make the floors easy and quick to assemble, with little or no expertise required to put them together and no messy glue or adhesive needed. Both floors will need a flooring underlay, however, with different kinds available depending on whether the underfloor is made from wood or concrete.
With ease of installation, beauty and toughness rolled into one, engineered ash flooring offers an outstanding option for your home that will provide many years of excellent service.
