Why Oggie chooses multi-ply
Engineered multi-ply is a flooring solution for anyone who wants flooring that
is less likely to warp or react to fluctuations in humidity and temperature.
Oggie multi-ply boards are constructed by bonding together a solid top layer of oak
with 8+ base layers of poplar and birch. These are cross-layered then bonded and
pressed together to create a solid core.
Oggie multi-ply vs 3-ply multilayer boards:
The centre of a 3-ply multilayer board is normally made up of a single board.
Oggie multi-ply boards are precision engineered for long-lasting stability.
This makes the tongue and groove of multi-ply boards more resilient.
A 3-ply multilayer board will generally cost less than a multi-ply board because
there is less work involved in its construction. The more layers the board has,
the more stable your floor is likely to be.
A 3-ply multilayer board is more likely to risk damage through moisture and
temperature fluctuations than a multi-ply board. If you have under floor heating,
because of the direct influence of the heat, multi-ply boards are generally recommended.
