Floors that will last generations
All Kährs wood flooring is based on Kährs patented engineered flooring construction and is made up of multiple layers.
The multi-layer construction makes the floor more even and stable than with solid flooring, even when temperatures and ambient humidity vary according to season. The reason is that crossed layers counteract the natural movements of the timber. Varying the direction of the fibers in the timber in various layers allows more durable floors that are not affected as much by 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 it in all our flooring.
Kährs engineered flooring is also more eco-friendly than solid wood flooring as we use fast-growing wood species such as pine for our core material. Thereby reducing the use of the valuable hardwood surface layer which you see and walk on as required for solid flooring.
Wood floors in the Kährs Original range can be sanded 2 times over the lifetime of the floor, just like solid wood flooring. Kährs provides a 25-year wear-through warranty on all 15 mm Kährs Original flooring.
