Quick-Step Parquet is an engineered hardwood floor. It means it is made up of three layers of real wood, compared to one layer for solid wood floors. Thanks to the careful selection of raw materials and a sophisticated manufacturing process, engineered hardwood is significantly less sensitive to contracting and expanding than solid wood floors.
|Quick-Step engineerd hardwood floors (Parquet)||Solid wood floors|
|Ecology||More economical use of wood: 1 m³ of wood = 150 m² of Quick-Step Parquet||1 m³ of wood = 50 m² solid wood|
|Stability||Consists of 3 layers = less contracting/expanding||A lot of contracting/expanding|
|Lifespan||Top layer = 2.5 mm: at least 2 times sanding possible||Sanding: only possible down to the tongue of the plank|
|Installation||Possible to install yourself thanks to the Uniclic Multifit system.
Both floating and glue-down installation possible.
|Traditional tongue and groove installation is time consuming.
Only glue-down installation.
|Protection||Factory finished with 7 layers of varnish or 2 layers of oil. Ready to use..||Needs to be sanded first: oil, varnish and wax.|
|Maintenance||Thanks to the 'Wood For Life' principle, Quick-Step Parquet is easy to maintain with a simple cleaning kit.||Regular waxing and oiling.|
|Installation time||Product + installation = immediately ready for use. Fast installation due to Uniclic-Multifit profile.||Product + installation + finishing (sanding and oiling, wax or varnish)|
