Elégance by adler 600: trendy herringbone installation

Two-layer parquet strip for the classical herringbone installation

The herringbone installation of parquet floors has currently come back into fashion and is encouraged in many of today's lifestyle magazines. The typical feature of this installation technique is the recurring pattern, which recalls the pattern of bones on the spine of a fish. Parquet strips of identical size are installed with their ends positioned at right angles to each other. This produces an interesting visual effect, which breaks up the light on the parquet strips. This classic parquet design combines well both with modern and with traditional lifestyles.

In order to respond to this continuing trend, we have developed the two-layer Elegance by adler 600 strip in oak and walnut. This elegant short parquet strip has very balanced dimensions of 600x100x10 mm, which results in a well-proportioned, soothing, elegant appearance. The good size of 600x100 mm can also inspire to install other patterns like squares. The core construction comprises high quality, massive spruce strips. All the planks are bevelled and the surface is machine wire brushed or smooth depending on the wood specie.

Colour palette for our herring bone plank Elégance by adler 600

We offer as standard three different shades, which are all processed with our high quality, oxidatively cured NATURA+ oil treatment. On request other the other colours in our Villa by adler product palette are available with the exception of the hand scraped versions.

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.

Surface treatment & colour variations Elégance by adler 600

The wood structure is always machine brushed and is then refined with our oxidative NATURA+ oil surface treatment.

For private use the oak strip is ready to use 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 Elégance by adler 600

This short Elegance by adler 600 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. 0.079 - 090 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 Elégance by adler 600

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

You should also ensure that you have a healthy indoor climate, not just for your parquet, which consists of 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 you wooden floor.
