Par-ky shares the most important technologies with the laminate floors: limited thickness, floating installation, water-resistant core panel and uniclic. However, Par-ky does not just have an image of wood on paper with a melamine top layer like the laminate floors! Par-ky has a top layer of real wood, protected by 8 ultra-strong layers of lacquer.
Real wood instead of a paper print offers a lot of advantages that we can divide into 3 categories:
Yes it is, for the following reasons:
The advantage is that you don’t have to sand it anymore. Thanks to the DSI lacquering system (question 3) and the ultra-strong HDF panel, it is almost impossible to make dents, and even when it happens, they are only 0.6mm deep. In extreme situations it is possible to apply an extra layer of lacquer, but this can only be done by a professional installer.
As you don’t have to sand Par-ky, you save a lot of time, money and dust.
Par-ky is suitable for domestic and light commercial use. The life of Par-ky does not depend on the installed wood specie. However we recommend to avoid Par-ky in damp rooms, such as a bath room.
Yes. Under the influence of sunlight the color of the wood intensifies. This is a natural process.
Like every wooden floor, also Par-ky is liable to small scratches. To avoid this: maintain your floor, put a doormat at the entrance of the room, put a piece of felt on the chairlegs and also a protective mat under chairs with wheels.
Normal maintenance: duster (flipper) / vacuum cleaner. We also advise to clean your Par-ky floor every 2 weeks with the specially developed Par-ky cleaner. This cleaner not only cleans the wood, but also gives an extra protection. We recommend to avoid too much water.

Uniclic, the installation system without glue, has advantages during the installation – no glue spots, no open joints, you don’t have to move your furniture to another room, faster and easier installation – as well as after the installation – you can immediately walk on it, easy replacement and easy reparation.
Par-ky can be installed on underfloor heating without a problem. However, as there are different types of underfloor heating systems, we recommend to follow the instructions of the producer. Afterwards you can raise the temperature but the surface temperature of the flooring should not exceed 28°C in any case. You can get more information in your official Par-ky point of sale or in the attached document.
