    Wood flooring and parquet - vertical finger parquet

Vertical finger parquet (according to EN 14761) consists of solid wood slats of hard- and softwood, joined together in an upright position, which are held together as laying units and glued to the subfloor. The thicknesses of the parquet are usually offered from 10 to 25 mm - laying is usually undertaken in parallel. The most common types of wood are listed in Appendix A (Hard- and Softwoods) of EN 14761. According to EN 14761, there are no sorting rules for vertical fingers. However, it is recommended to define a "free class" for the respective type of wood and sorting - this "free class" is agreed between the contractual partners and must correspond to the predefined sorting characteristics. Beside the mostly common vertical fingers, the above standard also defines wide slats and modular blocks - these, however, are not being discussed in the following. The fire behaviour of the parquet is classified acc. to the classification report of the manufacturer or acc. to EN 13501-1, resp. (Cfl-s1, Dfl-s1, Efl - acc. to product details and end-use condition). The CE marking of wood flooring and parquet acc. to EN 14342 has been compulsory since 01.03.2010.
