Parquet is real natural wood at its most beautiful and unique. As a material of interior design, wood is an environmentally friendly and ecologically durable option, providing character, warmth, and comfort for every room in your home. A real wood floor will give any interior designer a timeless aesthetic, as well as a long-term partnership in the most important place of your life – your home. Trends change, but the charm and value of genuine wood as flooring material remain unchanged.

Chalet Tundra -parquet is greyish of its tone. Old looking appearance comes from the combination of showy fibers and knot of oak tree. The surface of the parquet board is brushed to emphasize the natural characteristics of real wood. The uniform top layer of the parquet board is 190 mm with slight bevels in the edges to create the plank-look to the floor.

The parquets in the Vintage Collection display the knot features characteristic to natural materials as well as a deep variation of grain structure and colour. The surface of these industrially manufactured products is intentionally uneven, and their surface layer contains open knots and cracks. It is recommended to install the parquet flooring in such a way that the surface of the parquet has a uniform overall appearance. It is recommended to install any boards that differ in their pattern or hue separately to each other.

The Parla parquet is unique on the market, due to its durability and dimensional stability. ParlaFix parquet boards consist of three overlapping layers, each made from real wood, strengthening each other. The unique structure has been designed for durability, and especially so that the wood will expand as little as possible. The dimensional stability of the floorboards is also influenced by the moisture characteristics of the timber, which have been adjusted to optimal levels during the manufacturing process. Locking tongues and grooves are situated on four sides of the floorboards, making installation easier and quicker. The parquet boards will be installed as a floating floor, the boards will become interlocked thanks to the tongue and groove system. In order to guarantee exceptional abrasion resistance, the surface of the parquet boards has been treated with a safe and innovative lacquer.

Care of the lacquered parquet

(Source: Finnish Floor Covering Association)

Remove sand and dust from the floor with a vacuum cleaner or brush. If necessary, wipe the floor with a well-wrung cloth or mop. Use lukewarm water, to which can be added a detergent intended for floor cleaning, and follow the directions for use of the detergent. The use of strong detergents is to be avoided. Wax or polishes containing wax must not be used.

Removal of stains

Wipe up all spills immediately. Stains which cannot be removed by wiping require different cleaning agents.

Type of stain -> Cleaning agent
fruit, juice, milk, cream, soft drinks, beer, wine, coffee, tea -> synthetic detergent
chocolate, grease, oil, shoe polish, heel marks, tar, pitch -> mineral turpentine
typewriter ribbon, duplicating wax, correction fluid, ball-point pen, ink, lipstick -> denatured alcohol
blood -> cold water

Floor repairs

In case the floor surface is worn or scratched after use, it can be re-sanded and varnished or oiled again.

Three layer structure

All of the components of 14 mm thich ParlaFix parquet board are real wood. Parquet board is composed of three mutually supporting layers.The construction is developed durable and particularly in a way to counteract warping. The dimensional stability of ParlaFix parquet board is improved also by controlling the moisture characteristics optimally in the manufacturing process.

The hardwood surface of the parquet board mainly highlights the natural beauty of wood and its outstanding and individualistic design. The surface has an influence on durability and life of parquet floor. Softwood from Nordic forests make the core of the Parla parquet. In the north wood grows slowly and sturdily which makes wood extremely good quality and hard-wearing. The grain in the middle layer is vertical improving the parquet´s durability and preventing shape changes. Bottom layer gives support to the entire stucture. Professionally manufactured parquet won´t warp or bend.

Oak

Oak is among the world's oldest and most popular timbers used in interiors. Its hard and heavy wood is excellent in application requiring great strength and durability. Oak´s yellowish-white sapwood is readily distinguishable from the darker heartwood. The grain pattern is clear and readily observable on a dressed piece of wood. A floor made of oak-wood may become a little darker as a result of the impact of sunlight. We import our oak-wood mainly from Hungary, Poland and Lithuania.

Surface treatment

A surface treatment brings out the unique beauty of the wood. The surface treatment highlights the natural beauty of timber, and is bound to the surface of the floorboards. The surface treatment makes the floor durable, and easy to clean. The surface of the floorboards has been treated with an efficient and safe varnish. The lacquer protects surface of the parquet from scratches. It inhibits germ development by not having them a breeding ground in the surface of the parquet.

When choosing the surface treatment agent, we have also considered its safety and environmental impact, in addition to the traditional dirt- and moisture-resistance, and abrasion resistance. This surface treatment agent meets strict European norms, as well as the Finnish M1 norms (highest category) of the emission classification for building materials.
