About the panel manufacturing Versailles, Aremberg, etc. Chantilly.
We manufacture panels "to measure", it's the laying out which determines the size of the panels.
This is a traditional manufacturing, with mortise and tenon, no glue.
Depending on the characteristics of the site, these panels are manufactured in different thicknesses: 22 mm conventionally for installation on a flat surface (concrete or screed intermediate floor), 15 mm usually replacing carpet and 30 mm for installation on joists.
The panels Aremberg consists of 35 pieces and 29 assemblies.
A Calepinage obviously facilitates a precise laying parquet panels Versailles, Arenberg, Chantilly, etc.. and the parquet floors of family : Point of Hungary, Chevron, ferns, etc. Herringbone.
