Modern methods bring out
the beauty of the floor
Once the boards of a Kährs floor have been glued together, they are polished followed by the filling of knots and holes. The boards are sanded then refined in a number of ways. There are various kinds of refinement techniques, such as smoking, beveling, brushing, and handscraping.
Brushing brings out floor design
Some floors are brushed in order to bring out the natural graining of the floor. Brushing accentuates annual rings, grain and the structure of the wood. Brushing give brand new floors a natural vintage look.

“There are two main brushing methods: hard brushing and normal brushing. Hard brushing reaches deeper into the wood, resulting in a deeper wood graining. Kährs uses various combinations of nylon and steel brushes.” explains Jakob Jakobsson, operator at Kährs.
Brushed floors have become more and more popular over the past few years. These floors are often stained before the finish is applied or oiled.
Present a perfect frame with beveling
Beveling defines the appearance of the strips. Beveling is most common in 1-strip flooring, but there are exceptions. There are two types of beveling: our standard beveling, which is around 2 mm in size, and microbeveling, which is just 0.8 mm therefore extremely subtle. Beveling always takes place along the length of the wood, but we offer also some floors in which the short sides are beveled as well.
