Woodloc® the strongest joint
Kährs are the original developers of the breakthrough Woodloc® method of joining boards. Woodloc® ensures very tight timber joins which are almost seamless and protect the wood from warping and the joints from separating or gapping.
Wood expands contracts and reacts to moisture, which directly affects joints. The Woodloc® joint process is far superior to other joining methods, preventing gapping and damage to floor integrity.
Kährs Woodloc® has a unique record of timber flooring installation worldwide, with 25,000,000 m2 of Woodloc® flooring installed since introduction.
The easiest installation
The innovative Woodloc® joining method also makes installation much simpler and quicker. The strong joins and high tensile stress integrity of Woodloc® flooring allow timber floors to be accurately custom-fitted and laid onsite in any configuration.
Kährs and underfloor heating
Kährs 15mm multi-layer parquet floors or 7 mm Linnea floors can be safely laid over underfloor heating.
Technical issues to be considered with underfloor heating -
1. The surface temperature of the floor must not exceed 27 Celsius. This thermal profile requirement also relates to floors installed with heating equipment and fittings, like radiator pipes and floor areas exposed to direct heating.
2. Beech and hard maple naturally expand and contract more than other timbers. It is recommended to consult with your timber flooring specialists regarding any possible issues related to your heating system.
The best climate stability
Wood, being a natural material, responds to climate conditions seasonally. The expansion and contraction of timber can cause the movement of boards. Kährs timber floors are designed to deliver the perfect balance to minimise floor movement.
The strongest surface and the best finish
The surface of a floor is subjected to considerable wear and tear. Kährs timber flooring is designed to maintain an excellent finished surface in combination with very high durability and long product life. A super-strong lacquer is used to maintain surface appearance and resist wear.
Your Kährs Floor Won't Turn Yellow or Discolour
Kährs' high tech UV-cured acrylic finish is designed to be highly resistant to common household stains for up to 24 hours and will not yellow or fade over time.
Traditional solid wood cut
The Kähr's method of woodcutting, known as plain sawn, is the same technique used for our wood floors. The result is a much finer, more traditional wood grain that completely eliminates the splitting associated with peeled veneers.
Kährs - The same as a solid
Kährs timbers incorporate a plain-sawn wear layer which can withstand the stresses and strains of daily use for decades. This wear layer is super-tough and is made to protect floor surfaces. It also makes cleaning easy and ensures that your timber floor is always looking great.
