Basic by adler LONG short oak planks on a HDF base

More cost-effective country house planks for housing construction projects

Wooden flooring in country house planks is also very much in demand in large housing construction projects. In order to be able to offer an Adler parquet product at cost-effective conditions, we developed the Basic by adler LONG short plank with dimensions of 1090x130x10 mm. This short oak plank is a very cost-effective alternative to the normal two or three-layer planks, produced to the usual high Adler quality criteria in Dirlewang in Germany.

We offer Basic by adler LONG in four different surfaces only and in a classic mixed grade. This enables us to produce larger batches and to pass the targeted cost savings in the production prices on to our customers. The Basic by adler LONG short plank also has a somewhat thinner top layer of approx. 3.0 mm in oak sawn veneer and HDF, which also contributes to reducing the cost.

Basic by adler LONG: your colour choice

The images can only give an impression of the colours and structures of the actual wooden flooring and are not binding, since wood is a natural product and the colours are therefore dependent on the structure and the properties of the wood.

What you should know about Basic by adler LONG

Because of the approx. 3 mm top layer this short plank complies only with fire protection class Dfl-S1. Because of the built-in layer of HDF core material, this wooden flooring is unfortunately not formaldehyde-free, but does comply with the E05 standard. This Basic by adler LONG short plank has general building authority approval.

Below you will find more information and details. You will find accurate technical specifications in the PDF document, Technical Product Data-sheets, which can be downloaded from our Infothek.

Surface treatment & colour variations Basic by adler LONG

The Basic by adler short plank is available either in our UV-cured acrylic varnish or based on our NATURA+ oil surface treatment+. The oiled version is always on a machine brushed surface.

For private use of your parquet your NATURA+ oiled wooden flooring is ready for you to move in immediately after it has been installed. If the wooden floor is to be subjected to further stress, which is principally the case, when the rooms are used for commercial purposes, we recommend a finishing treatment after installation. More detailed information on this is available under About Parquet / NATURA+.

Wood is a natural product. Differences in the substances in the wood and the wood grain can lead to colour deviations in colour treated surfaces. These differences in colour can also occur between different product batches, as well as within a single product batch. This applies in particular to coloured surfaces, since the smoking, staining, lyes and the application of colour pigments can cause variations in shades because of the structure of the wood. However, this is a mark of authenticity for wood as a natural product.

Installation & underfloor heating system Basic by adler LONG

This Basic by Adler LONG by Adler short plank is two-layer and must be installed by the total glue down method.

By virtue of this construction and the low overall thickness the thermal resistance of this multi-layer plank is approx. 0.060 m²k / W (pursuant to EN14342). This makes it ideal for installation on a hot water based underfloor heating system.

A maximum temperature of the subfloor of 23°C – 28°C should not be exceeded. Please consult our About Parquet installation instructions for the precise guidelines on installation on underfloor heating systems in the Download field and the information in About Parquet.

Care & indoor climate Basic by adler LONG

So that you have a lot of enjoyment of your multi-layer parquet, you must give it the appropriate care.

The varnished version must also be properly cared for. You will find hints on care in our current Care Instructions, which can be downloaded from the Infotheque.

You should also ensure that you have a healthy indoor climate, not just for your parquet, which is made from wood, a living natural substance, but also for yourself. This means a relative air humidity of approx. 40 – 60% and a pleasant room temperature of 19 – 22°C.

If the air humidity and temperature drop below these reference values, this may cause great harm to your wooden floor.

Further options for housing construction

If you are interested in a high quality version with a greater variety of species of wood, which is also free from formaldehyde, we recommend our Elegance by adler short plank. On your kind request we also can produce this Elegance-plank in different Herringbone or Chevron dimensions.
