Multi-layer flooring lasts longer
All Kährs wood flooring is based on Kährs patented multi-layer flooring technology and is made up of multiple layers.
The multi-layer structure makes a floor more even and stable than a solid construction, even when temperature and ambient humidity varies throughout the seasons. The reason is that crossed layers counteract the natural movements of the timber. Varying the direction of the fibres, throughout various layers, provides a more durable surface that is more tolerant to changes in humidity in the indoor climate. Generally, climate variations are more significant in the North than in the South. In Sweden, we see some of the biggest humidity variations in the world, something that has inspired us to learn how to tame the forces of nature. Kährs patented its ‘parquet’ technology in 1941, and since then we have been using the same method throughout our production.
Kährs multi-layer flooring is also more eco-friendly than solid wood flooring ,as we use fast-growing wood species, like pine, for the intermediate layer. This means that we don’t need to use as much of the valuable hardwood as would be needed for a solid floor.
Wood floors, in the Kährs Original range, can be sanded three to four times over the lifetime of the floor, just like a solid wood floor. Kährs also provides a 30-year warranty on all of its 15 mm flooring.
