Board width: 185mm | Thickness: 20mm | Average board length: 2.4m



We are proud to be one of the very few companies who manufacture engineered hardwood flooring in the UK. Our 20mm Engineered Character Grade Oak flooring comprises a 5mm top layer of French oak bonded, using a high quality D4 adhesive, onto a base of 15mm birch plywood. This results in a hardwood floor that is far more tolerant to changes in temperature and relative humidity and displays little or no movement due to the cross bonding of layers. Our Engineered Oak retains the natural look and feel of solid oak flooring with the added benefit of strength and stability throughout. Due to its robust structural properties, our Engineered Oak flooring is ideal for installation in conjunction with under-floor heating systems.

All the raw timber we use is sourced from either PEFC or FSC certfied suppliers. The timber is kiln-dried to a moisture content of 8-10% and kept at an ambient temperature in our heated and humidity controlled factory. All our wood floors are manufactured to order, from the same batch of timber. We pre-plane the boards before final machining which results in accurately machined floorboards which are extremely straight, flat and a pleasure to fit. Mass produced imported floors are not made, or quality controlled, to the same high standards as a British Hardwoods wood floor.

Excellent quality
Very good quality. Almost no wastage. A few bendy lengths but they flattened out when laid. Initially worried about the dark grey filler used in the knots but this turns to a dark brown colour when the Osmo Polyx Hardwax oil is applied. So nothing to complain about!

Brilliant as ever
I have used British Hardwoods from the days they operated out of an old barn at the back of Bingley in West Yorkshire well over a decade ago. Always great product, always great technical advice and support, would never use anyone else.

Just lovely
All arrived to plan and looks fabulous . . . lots of positive comments from our builder (who laid the floor) and visitors to the house. We floated the floor over a solid substrate very successfully and it remains true and 'solid'. A useful benefit is the ability to phone British Hardwoods for advice. Thanks.

Absolutely beautiful
Arrived all beautifully wrapped up like a Christmas present. Opened it all up and found it to be all perfectly square and true. It looks fabulous!! Opened all the packages to move the boards around and make sure they can acclimate properly. 2 weeks later and they are still true and square. No bends, no warps.

I tested my Osmo Polyx on a sample and it looks out of this world, really tremendous. I haven't laid the floor yet, as I have other renovations on going, but can't wait to get it all down.

Thanks British Hardwoods.
