Chipboard flooring 18mm - 2400 x 600mm Sheets

18mm T&G chipboard flooring is the most commonly used flooring throught the UK. It is a popular choice for both domestic and commercial applications. It is a cost-effective option that is easy to install for both professionals and DIYers.

This product is referred to by many names such as Loft Floor Boards, Loft Board, P5 Chipboard, Moisture Resistant Chipboard, V313, T&G Flooring and also Caberfloor.

Manufactured from a mixture of carefully selected wood chips and blended with a melamine urea resin.

Machine profiled with diamond tipped tooling to achieve a precision tongue and grooved profile on all 4 sides. 

Where can I use 18mm Chipboard Flooring?

As the boards are moisture resistant they are suitable for all areas of a house including bathrooms and kitchens. 18mm thickness is designed to be used for joist centres up to 400mm. For any spacings above 400mm, 22mm should be used.

Most modern developments would now have larger joist centres so therefore, 22mm would need to be installed. 

A very common use of the 18mm would be for loft floor boards. When using as a loft board, it is important to make sure the boards will fit through your loft hatch!

How do I fix Chipboard Flooring?

Install the flooring in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations:

This will ensure a good installation and a long-lasting flooring. 


The subfloor must be level and smooth in order to ensure a good installation.

Moisture levels:

The subfloor must be dry before the flooring is installed.

Once the above have been taken in to account, the chipboard flooring are then laid the opposite way to the floor joists and then slotted together using the tongue and grooved joints. The sheets of chipboard are then screwed on nailed to the joists below.

The boards can also be laid as a 'floating floor' on a concrete/screed base or on top of the floor insulation layer. Simply glue the joints using a suitable adhesive and slot together. It is advisable to use a D4 adhesive when fixing these boards.

Is 18mm Caberfloor water resistant?

When buyers are looking for water proof wood flooring, they often mean moisture resistant flooring. There is no real need for water proof chipboard as it isn't something that would be submersed in water as standard. The requirement for a 18mm moisture resistant chipboard is though imporatant. Caberfloor P5 can be used in areas such as bathrooms and kitchens where there is a high moisture content.
