About OKEE’s two layer parquet.
What it is?
Two-layer parquet is made of two mutually glued layers. The inside layer is made of birch plywood and top layer, which determines the appearance and durability of the floor covering, is 2.5 mm or 1.5 mm. Inside part- birch plywood is made from hot pressed birch veneer which ensures high dimensional stability of the board at a wide range of temperatures and humidity fluctuations. The top layer- face layer is made of oak, which is one of the hardest and most durable deciduous trees in Europe. OKEE uses Latvian, Slovakian and … oak. Two-layer floorboards are a actually a novelty in the world of wooden floors, because they were invented in the sicties of the 20th century.
How to use it?

Two-layer parquet can be laid on plywood, OSB, as well as concrete floor. Possible installation on heated floors. Laying is done by gluing the boards to the base floor.
Why to use OKEE’s too-layer floorboards?
Compared to solid wood boards, a greater advantage of two-layer boards is much less sensitivity to moisture fluctuations both in outdoor areas and indoors. Therefore, two-layer floor boards can also be laid on a concrete base floor, including a heated floor. One of the advantaged is also sound isolation. Unlike as in three-layer parquet floors, in a two-layer parquet the counter-move is usually missing or is replaced by a certain carrier material. However, this results in a lack of stability. Usually, the low construction height is a common factor in the decision to install a two-layer parquet. Especially in renovations and modernisations, there is often insufficient space.
