Say `Hello` To Junckers` Engineered Wood Flooring Choices
Interior design is easy with the right products. Hardwood floors are the first furniture in the room and provide a classic backdrop for the rest of the design. A hardwood floor is beautiful and alive and adds warmth to the room. Junckers’ are well known for the many choices of solid hardwood floors and now offer engineered flooring in premium quality.
The many varieties of choice of wood species and colour variation make the room and the interior design personal. Wide board or 2 stripboard. Junckers solid wooden floors have long been available both as a wide board and stripboard flooring. This now applies to the engineered floors as well.
Wide board engineered floors have a more subtle appearance and are at their best in large rooms. The smaller staves in the 3 strip engineered board floors give more life and colour to the room and add lightness, particularly in small rooms. With Junckers` engineered floors you can find the best wood species to underline the function and personality of your room. Choose from a range including Walnut, Oak and Ash. Hardwood floors enhance the expression in the room – without dominating. The floor carries the interior design. And here the surface plays an important part.
The floor is the basic element in the room. It decides how you experience the room, how the light is reflected, how the interior design and the furniture harmonize. The identity of the room is based on the floor.
Natural or white
Junckers engineered hardwood floors are available the way nature intended – with the original natural colour and grain. Or as with our Ash flooring the surface can be available in “Whitesand” – which has a white pigment over the surface giving the wood a lighter, fresher look whilst highlighting its structure.
Hard-wearing ultra matt, natural lacquered surface
Whether the floor is Natural or Whitesand, the surface is protected from daily wear and tear by a 100% pure polyurethane natural ultra matt lacquer, which combines lacquer’s strength with oil’s natural look. This means the floor is both strong and easy to maintain – natural and clean.

Here’s How an Engineered Board is Built Up
Engineered flooring is composed of three layers: a visible surface layer of hardwood, a cross-layer that prevents movement in the floor, and a veneer layer for stability. The different types of hardwood in the top layer – walnut, ash and oak,– all come from sustainable forestry. The middle layer is from recycled plantation trees, rubber trees that are no longer used for rubber production. The bottom layer is either PEFC-certified Finnish fir or FSC-certified Australian eucalyptus.
An engineered floor looks like a solid floor on the surface but costs less. Engineered floors typically have a surface layer of 3-4mm

Junckers Engineered Floors in Walnut, Ash & Oak are Well Suited for Under Floor Heating
Floor heating is not just an agreeable luxury on cold winter mornings in the bathroom. It has become increasingly common in renovation and new construction projects. Houses have become better insulated, and that means that warm-up temperatures do not need to be so high as they once did. Whereas a radiator’s heat circulation results in warm ceilings and cold feet, underfloor heating provides a comfortable temperature at both foot and head level – without wasted heat at the ceiling.
Engineered hardwood flooring is in itself a warm insulating material that feels good and comfortable even without underfloor heating. A wood floor is a perfect choice to use for cold weather. Junckers’ engineered floors can tolerate large temperature fluctuations and are thus well suited for underfloor heating.
Water or Electricity?
The water-based approach is used in both new construction and renovation, while the electric solution is mainly used in smaller renovations. Junckers has produced a floor heating brochure in cooperation with the two leading floor heating producers Uponor Wirsbo A/S (water-based systems) and Devi A/S (electric systems).
Don't Forget The Three Hot Tips From Junckers
- The temperature on the top side of the boards must not exceed 27°C.
- Use a double moisture barrier in connection with concrete or screed floor heating.
- The floor heating system must have an even distribution of temperature
All Junckers Floors Are Allergy Friendly
Junckers flooring contributes to a good indoor climate. It is allergy friendly and does not give off any unhealthy substances from glue or lacquer. Junckers floors are unique in being the only hardwood flooring in the world to be approved, accredited and have the seal of approval from the British Allergy Foundation – Allergy UK.
