Top layer/Wear layer
The top layer is usually between 3mm – 6mm in thickness.
This is the exposed layer where you achieve you style, texture and colour.
You can achieve different looks using the same timber. This is achieved by how the timber has been treated. Such as using different stains, varnished and oils to create darker or lighter floors.
Planks can be finished with a rough or smooth texture and some ranges will have areas where they have been filled to create a rustic finish.
Base layers are made up of plywood mainly but can also be made up of some softwoods.
This layer gives the plank stability and strength.
This layer is where the planks connect to each other using a click system or a tong and grove system.
