Parquet is the narrow, long and dowel lamp-plated flooring and coating material obtained by machining hard wood timbers such as oak, hornbeam and beech.

Thicknesses are 17 and 22 millimetres with a tolerance of 2 percent on the parquet, which is referred to as massive or thick parquet. Widths vary from 30-100 mm by a 5 millimetric difference. Lengths are between 200-1000 millimetres by a millimetric difference of 50 millimetres.

The parquet is laid on the blind flooring or directly nailing by timbers or pasted on the screed.
