15/16mm thick engineered flooring refers to the thickness of the entire board. Wear layers will vary based on the product, but ours range from 3mm-4mm. This figure determines how much you can sand the floor down, whereas the overall thickness determines how long the floor will last, and how durable it is.
Although wear layer thickness doesn’t make a difference to durability given that the overall thickness is the same, thicker wear layers enable the floor to be sanded more often, making it last longer in high footfall areas. Not everybody opts for thicker ones though, as these are more expensive, so are usually only invested in when necessary. Sanding is used to refresh the floor to how it was at purchase, in terms of removing scuffs and scratches. Generally, a floor can be sanded to the thickness of the wear layer - if this is 2mm, you can sand it twice, if it is 6, you can sand it 5-6 times. As sanding can occur every 15 years, even the thinnest floors may last a lifetime, but in homes with higher footfall where sanding has to occur more often, it is clear that thicker wear layers should be chosen to ensure maximum lifespan. Refinish after sanding is also recommended. For thin wear layers, avoid hallways and communal areas that will quickly wear down the floor, and homes with children, pets or high footfall.
15/16mm engineered flooring is a medium thickness, making it durable enough for medium footfall homes, but still cost effective compared to thicker options. It is more advantageous than thicker options as underfloor heating is better transferred, rooms with lower ceilings, are made taller and more attractive or better able to handle tall furniture, and door are less likely to catch on the planks. Thinner options however may not be as durable or as able to absorb impact, meaning 15/16mm floors are less likely to crack or be damaged by moisture for example than thinner ones. We recommend measuring up from the subfloor to see which thickness you require. Our 15/16mm engineered floors are available in walnut or oak, as oak is hard and walnut is slightly softer, giving versatile options as well as better suitability to areas that don’t necessarily require hardness.
