Based in the UK, Elka provides designer floorings for personal and commercial spaces. The company has a strict sourcing policy and maintains the proper custody chain of certification as per the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) for the wood it sources. Elka has two units, one at Trafford Park in Manchester, and another at Newry in County Down, UK. Their floorings are available in a range of Solid Wood, Real Engineered Wood, and Laminates, depending on the room and usage.
Wood floorings are one of the most beautiful ones available that bring in the timeless appeal of nature into your home. Elka prides itself on bringing you exclusive wood finishes in three distinct collections.
Laminates: One of the best solutions for all budgets, laminates are ideal for achieving a wood look and can be installed quickly with little fuss. These are ideal for all sorts of areas and can withstand large footfalls, being hardwearing. Laminates can be used with or without underfloor heating.
Real Engineered Wood: These are especially made by Elka and have immense stability, along with flexibility in installation. Thus, these are generally used for areas that require strength and durability. Real Engineered Wood floorings look almost like real wood but are thicker and more durable. The flooring is made by co-joining minimum 3 and more layers of real wood. This is topped by an extra layer of authentic hardwood. Each layer is fit in diametrically opposite directions enhancing the strength of the product. This flooring can be used with underfloor heating and in almost all areas of a house.
Solid Wood: As the name suggests, these are the classic wood floorings that have adorned homes since centuries. These wood floorings are solid and have the traditional elegance of natural timber. The material is totally natural wood and thus, long lasting. The flooring has the typical grains, colours and visual appeal one expects from such flooring.
Besides providing the primary wood flooring, Elka also offers all accessories for the fitting of such flooring. These include –
Preparation: a range of Primers, Membranes, and Under Lay, in different structures to suit any floor. These can be further enhanced with sound proofing and DPM. All the lays by Elka can be used with the Laminate and Real Engineered Wood floorings. The company’s brand Elka 3 in 1 Lay is a specially formulated solution that has been integrated for both – Solid and Real Engineered wood.
Fixes: a number of fixes that include ones for professionals and DIY inclined. There are rigid, flexible and complete kits on offer. This versatile range is simple and safe to use, besides being extremely cost effective. The Elka Bond is useful for rigid fixing for Solid and Real Engineered wood floorings and can also be used for flexible fixing with Solid Wood floorings.
Finishes: the finishes available at Elka are 3 in 1 Real Wood Veneer, 5 in 1 Laminate Profile, 3 in 1 Metal Profile, Scotia Laminate Profile and the Oak Scotia Profile. Elka also has a range of maintenance products to keep all your floorings in optimum condition and clean of scuff and other marks.
