Engineered Hardwood Flooring (T&G)
Engineered wooden flooring is constructed by adhering two or more layers of wood or lamella (thin strip) in order to form a plank. It consists of a substrate of plywood and the top layer is a selected hardwood species. Engineered flooring is end matched in standard lengths, so it is faster to lay and is considered to be a more stable option. Once installed, engineered flooring looks and feels like solid hardwood flooring.
The degree of expansion and contraction of engineered flooring is less than solid hardwood flooring especially over a heated sub-floor. It is durable, tough and thus can be installed in heavy foot traffic areas in commercial or domestic spaces. It can be sanded and re-coated from time to time giving a fresh surface when required.
Engineered hardwood flooring is available in three species and they are: European White Oak (T&G Profile). Pilularis Blackbutt and spotted Gum (Uniclic Profile), Australian Oak (T&G Profile).

Solid Hardwood Flooring (T&G)
Solid hardwood flooring is constructed by butting one plank of timber to another. Typically, it is milled from a single piece of kiln dried timber before machining. Solid hardwood flooring had thicker wear strip and is considered to be long lasting, durable and resilient. It is relatively easy to maintain and it can be sanded and coated numerous times over its life to give fresh surface finish.
at ITI Timspec, we supply a variety of solid T&G flooring species covering a wide range of grain, colour and sizes. For installation of T&G flooring, please refer to the manuals supplied by ATFA (Australasian Timber Floor Association) or download installation guides from our downloads page.
