Compared to a solid wood floor, Kährs engineered construction is 75% more stable; it resists warping, buckling and cracking, even as temperature and humidity change throughout the seasons.
Multi-layer (engineered) wood floors are also more environmentally-friendly than solid wood floors, since the core material is crafted from fast-growing or recycled wood. Fast-growing wood species such as pine/spruce wood is used as our core material, thereby using less of the precious, slow-grown hardwood surface layer compared to solid wood flooring.
Kährs patented its parquet technology in 1941, and since then we have been using it in all our flooring. By applying different characteristics and a variety of thickness of layers in our different product ranges we have created a variety of floors to suit every application.
