Multi-layer parquets last the longest

All Kährs wood flooring is based on Kährs’ patented engineered flooring construction, which consists of multiple layers.

Multi-layer construction – more stabilityMulti-layer construction

Multi-layer construction provides more stability than solid flooring, even when temperatures and ambient humidity vary according to season. This is because crossed layers counteract the natural movement of the timber. By varying the direction of the fibers in the timber throughout the various layers, floors are less affected by changes in humidity in the indoor climate and are more durable.

Engineered flooring – better than solid wood floors

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 using less of the valuable 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.

Kährs – sands like a solid

Kährs’ multi-layer construction uses hardwood down to the joint only, with fast-growing timber below, which means it can be refurbished in exactly the same way as a solid floor.

The best climate stability

Since wood is a natural material, that is affected by climatic changes, a wood floor moves with the seasons, i.e. it swells in high humidity and shrinks in low humidity. Kährs’ multi-layered construction minimizes this movement. It provides the correct balance between the layers – top, core and back – and ensures the floor remains stable in all conditions.
