Par-ky planks provide a beautiful, quality, real wood option for even the tightest budget. This is the European market leader in wood veneer products and, in the UK, is available only from Havwoods. Like any engineered plank Par-ky is extremely stable. It is also particularly tough and hard-wearing thanks to an HDF core, eight layers of UV cured lacquer and a process known as Double-Sided Impregnation: during the milling process the top layer of wood is saturated with both the glue and varnish which react together to create an ultra-strong plank once dry. Furthermore, all the Par-ky planks we offer use prime grade wood, so they are perfect if you prefer a clean grain. 

This plank is available in two thicknesses, with the 12mm option incorporating a layer of cork to aid both thermal and acoustic insulation. It is usually available from stock and may be laid over under flooring heating.  See more Par-ky planks,  or use the 'products'  drop-down menu to further refine your search.

Finish your floor with the perfect trim

Finishing your floor with the ideal stair nosing, threshold, ramp or scotia makes the difference between a good floor and a great one. For this reason, at Havwoods we offer a complete range of trims, including T and end sections, pipe covers, cover plates and skirting/architrave profiles, specifically to complement every individual product, and they are stained, textured and oiled as appropriate to match each one as closely as is possible. Of course, this is a bespoke service so it will take approximately one week to fulfil your order.

The special beauty of smoked wood

Smoking, sometimes known as fuming, is a wood finishing process that is used to create really sophisticated shades, both darkening the timber and simultaneously enhancing its grain. Ammonium hydroxide reacts with the natural tannin in the wood, rather like sunlight on the melanin in human skin, and draws it towards the surface. The ultimate shade depends on the temperature of the process and the length of exposure, but obviously it is also dependent on the actual tannin levels – the more tannin, and the closer it is to the surface, the more pronounced the effect.

Of course, this means that smoking also enhances the individuality that is fundamental to the charm of a real wood floor. Results will vary from plank to plank - even those cut from the same tree can show a difference in colour. And the process also emphasises the sapwood (the living part of the tree through which sap and water flow), throwing it into greater relief. If you prefer a more even tone you may wish to opt for a product that owes its appearance to stains or coloured oils instead.

But if you are charmed by its unique and subtle visual, smoking offers another major advantage over staining - its effects run right through the lamella (the wear layer). This makes fumed and smoked products ideal for use in high traffic areas where scratches are inevitable. But beware of cheap imitations. The wood should be held in a sealed chamber with freely circulating air, enabling the fumes to penetrate the cell structure, but if ammonia has simply been wiped across the surface, its effect will be merely superficial.

What is meant by prime grade?

Whilst you are no doubt aware that wood is graded according to its appearance, you may be surprised to learn that there are no international grading standards. At Havwoods we deal with many different mills, from many different countries, so for consistency we have defined our own grading rules.

This board uses prime grade timber, which is the cleanest of all the grades. There will be few, if any, knots and they will be of minimal size. There will also be minimal sapwood and relatively little colour variation.

If you prefer a board with more visual variation then refine your search to look for a character, natural or rustic grade board.

What is meant by engineered wood?

Some people confuse engineered wood with laminate, but nothing could be further from the truth. Laminate flooring may look like wood, but it is not, it is simply a photographic image under a clear protective layer. Engineered wood, however, is the real thing. And once laid it is virtually impossible to distinguish it from solid wood. But instead of being milled from a single piece of timber, engineered boards consist of several layers, and this construction results in a number of very sound advantages.

In an engineered board, the top layer is, of course, solid wood, whilst the other layers may be plywood, softwood or yet more layers of hardwood. Each layer is bonded to the next with the grain running at right angles, which makes it virtually impossible for the board to swell or shrink. So when it is laid it is highly unlikely to warp and gap, or otherwise suffer in the same way as solid wood flooring can when exposed to changes in humidity through the use of heating and air conditioning, or simply due to a change in the weather.

In addition to being far more stable, engineered wood offers several other benefits. It may be laid as a floating floor, as well as being nailed or glued down, and some planks even come in an easy to fit 'click' system. It is usually pre-finished, meaning you see exactly how your floor will look before it is fitted and ensuring a faster, easier installation with no mess and no fuss. And, because it isn't affected by changes in humidity, it is available in much wider, longer, more imposing planks. Finally, it is particularly kind to the environment, because every beautiful, stable, hard wearing engineered timber floor fitted uses less of the slow-growth hardwoods. Little wonder that engineered timber is now by far the most popular type of timber flooring fitted around the world.
