Experience is the best innovator. With more than 150 years in the business, Kährs is one of the oldest manufacturers of wood floors in the world. It is also one of the most innovative.
Kährs is still located in the town of Nybro, deep in the heart of a Swedish forest, where our company was born in 1857. The wood knowledge we have accumulated over the years has been passed down from generation to generation.
We are constantly discussing new ideas how to improve our floors. At work, we are trying, testing and eventually succeeding. But the goal is always the same: how to find ways to make our floors even better looking, stronger, easier to install and more sustainable.
We’re proud that people all over the world appreciate the result. Today, our floors can be found in homes, offices, shops, hotels, concert halls, theaters and sports arenas from Europe and Asia to the Americas.
The Wood Collections
Kahrs supply a extensive range of 6 Collections; Kahrs Supreme, Kahrs Original, Kahrs Avanti, Kahrs Spirit, Kahrs Linnea, and Kahrs Activity Floors.
The Kährs Original is constructed using patented parquet technology and consists of three separate layers with a total thickness of 15 mm. The surface layer is 3.5 mm thick, allowing each Kährs Original floor to be sanded up to three times. Offering a floor that is suitable for a wide range of settings, from homes and offices, to retail spaces. If you are wanting to create the wow factor the Kahrs Supreme Supplies the answer, with a high level of attention to detail. Kährs have combined tradition of wood floor manufacturing with outstanding craftsmanship by skilled professionals.
Multi-layer construction – more stability
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.
Beauty with a conscience
The skilled wood craftspeople at Kährs continue today, as we have for over 150-years, in making beautiful, functional, natural products from nature’s finest material.
“Beauty with a Conscience” is the best maxim to express our feelings and purpose for our work towards sustainability at Kährs. Our purpose at Kährs is to create and sell products from wood that is good for people and for the environment. This fulfilling work towards sustainability goes on everyday with us and we hope for 150-years in the future.
