Technical information floor boards
Years of delight with a floor begin with a good preparation of the space where it will be laid, the clean execution of the laying work and proper subsequent cleaning and care.
Important in Winter: Keep humidity at 40-50%
Keep an eye on humidity. If you don't humidify, humidity in many rooms can drop below 30-35% during the heating period. Too low of a humidity can lead to drying up of the wood and cracks in the floorboards. pur natur assumes no liability in those cases. We recommend humidifying the rooms with humidifier, so that humidity is kept at 45-50%.

All pur natur boards are marked with the CE stamp in accordance with the DIN EN 14342, and fundamentally suitable for underfloor heating.
Solid boards with a thickness of 35mm and a width of 400mm are automatically suitable for underfloor heating due to their material strength. We will gladly provide you with advice on this subject.
3-layer boards in widths of 400 and 450mm can be used without harm with underfloor heating.
In all cases, please pay attention to the room-climatic conditions.
Full-surface gluing on screed
pur natur boards can be glued directly onto the screed. Especially in the case of new constructions, this is one of the most common choices for laying the boards. The direct gluing onto the screed makes it possible to use underfloor heating (heated screed) without any problems. A further advantage is the relatively low construction height on the screed.
Concealed screw connection with joist cross bracing
Laying the boards on a “joist cross bracing” is recommended for new constructions or substructures in places where a certain height bridging in necessary in the substructure (as of 100mm UK height). The construction with two wooden joist levels also makes the use of two different insulation materials possible, for example filling/panel material, which in turn means an optimal use of the hollow space in combination with heat and/or noise insulation.
Screwed from above with joist cross bracing
When screwing from above, drill a 6-10mm deep hole with a 15mm Forstner bit at a distance from both board edges. Then pre-drill with a 3-4mm wood drill (Attention: only through the plank, not into the sub-construction). Then screw the plank in place with the appropriate screw. Appropriate screws are available from pur natur. See also the reference tables for the appropriate screw size. The spacing of the screws is usually determined by the distance between the joists. The recommended screw spacing is +-60cm, the maximum spacing is 100cm.
