Kährs proudly announces that its recently introduced Aware flooring has been awarded the Nordic Swan Ecolabel. Aware, which is a new type of flooring for use in both residential and commercial spaces, has a truly authentic wood appearance, is based on natural and recycled materials, and, has a durability that can be compared to that of traditional vinyl floors.
With the Beyond Retro collection, we wanted as a true design-oriented company, to create a high design collection celebrating the combination of classical and modern elements while incorporating a sense of authenticity, warmth, and modernity. The retro design style is not tied to a fixed principle, allowing us to freely create and combine.
Kährs Flex Silent can be used for several different types of top coverings, and it has the added benefit of being able to be reused several times when the flooring itself is changed – without losing any of its performance and quality. This not only saves the customer the cost of buying and replacing the underlay when installing a new floor, but it also reduces the carbon footprint of Kährs Flex Silent over its life cycle. Products with a long service life are always more sustainable than those that are only in use for a short period of time
