material analyses the compatibility between the solid prefinished, 20 mm
thick, hardwood flooring plank and the solid unfinished inlay - whether they
are borders or medallions.
The hardwood floor border inlay (also named ”wood floor borders” or ”parquet
borders”) shown in the left side of the image is worked at a 10 mm
thickness. This border (this is valid for the hardwood floor medallion
inlays too) is built solid (top-to-bottom made from a single piece of solid
hardwood) is compatible with solid hardwood flooring or parquet flooring.
Our inlays are delivered as unfinished (no finish whatsoever applied to the
The installation is done in the traditional way: glue
down-sanding-finishing. On the right side of the above image is solid
prefinished hardwood flooring plank. This type of hardwood flooring is
composed from a single piece of solid hardwood, top-to-bottom. The top layer
situated above the T&G (tongue and groove) level has a 6 mm thickness. The
fact that this hardwood flooring type comes factory-prefinished while our
inlays are unfinsihed (without any finish on the surface) makes the
installation compatibility rather improbable. To accomodate them both with
good results the installation should be done the traditional way so the
factory pre-finish should be removed. Our conclusion is: incompatible
with the inlays.
