What is Chevron Engineered Wood Flooring?
‘Chevron’ is a type of parquet flooring, very much like ‘Herringbone’, it consists of small rectangular cuts of hardwood arranged in a V pattern.
Our Tundra Chevron stands apart from other parquet floorings because it is made using engineered wood. We start with the best cuts of European oak and strengthen them using a multi-ply wooden base. The surface layer, or ‘lamella’, provides the hardwood look while our base increases durability and ensures your chevron wood flooring lasts.

The Key Features of Chevron Engineered Wood Flooring
Perfect for Underfloor Heating
As a form of engineered wood flooring, our Tundra Chevron range works efficiently with all modern underfloor heating systems, including electrical and hot-water variations.
All wood flooring will expand and contract when in contact with changing temperatures and moister levels – and these contributing factors are a big part of underfloor heating systems. However, the oak lamella we use at V4 fluctuates much less than other forms of hardwood.
This makes our Tundra Chevron a brilliant choice for homes that do not want to overhaul their underfloor systems but still want the option of new wooden flooring.
Parquet flooring is instantly recognisable thanks to its intricate geometric layout. Unlike the narrowing effect that comes with standard planks, the 45-degree angles of our Tundra Chevron flooring achieves a sort of optical illusion that creates the look of spaciousness. Making it a perfect choice for hallways or rooms that need expanding visually.
Tongue & Groove Fittings
Traditional chevron parquet is notoriously tricky to install right, which makes it a much costlier wood flooring option. The best thing about our Tundra Chevron is that thanks to its engineered wooden base, we are able to utilise tongue & groove fittings.
This simple but effective locking system makes installation quick and easy, and guarantees a pattern with a precise finish every time.
UV Oil Finish
Similar to a lacquered finish but with added depth and mattifying. Our UV oil finishes provide an extra protective layer to your chevron engineered wood flooring and help it to better resist dirt and dampness, whilst bringing out the natural features of the wood itself.
Our UV oil finishes ensure easy maintenance in the long term, and preserve your new chevron flooring for many years to come.
CARE FOR UV OILED FLOORING IN-DEPTH MAINTENANCE GUIDES
Traditional chevron flooring is made of individual planks cut and arranged to create the signature V patterning. Our Tundra Chevron is fitted on an engineered wooden base, which means the cuts of hardwood must already be joined (for optimal convenience).
In order to achieve the unbeatable look of individual planks, we carefully bevel every edge of our chevron lamellas, creating a clean-lined finish whilst illuminating the cons of traditional chevron – such as excessive warping over time and heat-loss through the gaps in the floorboards.
