Metsä Wood offers a range of high quality softwood Planed Tongue and Groove (PTG) flooring available in various sizes.
Softwood PTG flooring is manufactured from slow-grown premium redwood timber, precision finished and fully machined.
Various timber grades suit different applications:
- Redwood - best for use as a clear stained floor as it has a smooth planed surface
- Unsorted grade - has fewer and smaller knots
- Whitewood flooring - suitable for floor with a final carpet, tile or wood surface
Flooring should be ‘conditioned’ in situ for 2-3 weeks dependent upon conditions. As timber is a natural product this will give it time to absorb or lose moisture so that when fitted there is less likelihood of excess movement after fitting.
Flooring is not suited for installation over underfloor heating
Flooring must be laid facing upwards which can be seen by inspecting the tongue and the groove. The face side has the thicker surface.
