With more than 150 years in the timber flooring business, Kährs is one of the oldest, as well as one the most innovative Flooring Auckland companies in the world. This Swedish-born company has a long history of introducing ground-breaking wood flooring technology and we can deliver these benefits to you.
A major part of the raw material that is used to produce the wood floors grows next door to the main production plant in Sweden; an area rich in oak and where more trees are planted than harvested. This provides an opportunity for us to control that the oak logs are produced in a sustainable way. That’s why a Kährs wood flooring will always feel just right. Kährs stands for quality, design, innovation, environment and sustainability.
Whatever the size of your room or interior style, there’s a Kährs floor that will enhance the space. The floors come in a great variety of colors and species, sizes, patterns and finishes.
SENSE AND SENSIBILITY
Brushed, hand-scraped, bevelled, silky smooth or ultra matt. Each Kährs plank is unique and individually treated, according to its own unique composition of knots and graining.
NATURE OIL OR LACQUER
The ultimate feeling and look of the floor depends on the surface treatment. Kährs provides several options. The silk matt lacquer gives the floor a smooth surface, and the ultra matt lacquer will make it appear untreated, while the nature oil gives the floor a wonderfully natural feeling.
THE PERFECT FINISH
The smallest things often make the biggest difference. This is true of a Kährs floor, where the highest level of skill and craftsmanship is added to every detail, including the skirting boards and different types of mouldings.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Kährs Care and Maintenance range covers all you need for daily care as well as regular maintenance of the floor. It also includes products for a damaged floor.
THE BEST CLIMATE STABILITY
Because wood is a living material that is affected by climatic changes, a wood floor moves with the seasons. To minimise this movement, it is important to have the right balance between the various layers in each board – wear, core and backing – and also the right dimension for each layer.
For maximum stability and minimum movement, the wood fibres in each of the separate layers in the board lie in perpendicular directions.
During the drier part of the year, the wear layer shrinks more than the lamellae. This can result in concave boards.
The right balance between the layers improves performance and reduces movement.
During the more humid part of the year, the whole board construction swells. The wear layer attempts to expand 20–40 times more than the core lamellae. This can result in convex boards and an increase in the width of the floor.
