Kahrs Harmony Collection Engineered Wood Flooring Review
Kährs Harmony Collection of engineered wood flooring, as the name indicates, has been designed to create harmony and balance. With predominantly subtle shades, these floors are great for creating warm, calm and cosy interiors.
The collection is strongly backed by the company’s specialist design and performance features, which make it a great choice for with a range of challenges including heavy traffic, low maintenance needs and wear and tear.
Kährs Harmony Collection In-Depth Review
This collection features 2-strip and 3-strip floors. This means that each plank is derived from two or three blocks of wood respectively. Kährs’ famed craftsmanship can be witnessed in the way these wood pieces are arranged to give a lively and unique expression.
Kährs is a specialist in natural surface treatments. In fact, it was the first company to introduce solvent-free floors in 1984. The Harmony collection makes use of surface treatments to the best advantage.
The floors feature a matt finish, which imparts a genuine wood look and feel to them. You can feel the touch of the textured wood surface underfoot. The use of surface treatments does not increase the thickness of the floors. They are thin enough to carry the incredible beauty of wood but tough enough to handle wear and tear.
Whether it is a residential space with kids and pets or a commercial space, Harmony floors will meet every challenge with efficiency.
Floors with a brushed treatment reveal deeper wood details enhancing the texture further. Also, as softwood is removed during the brushing process, the hardwood is revealed, which toughens the floor surface further.
In case of lightly smoked floors, you’ll be able to view beautiful colour and tone variations that are a result of keeping the wood enclosed in an environment fed with ammonia.
The revolutionary Woodloc 5S joint system is one of the biggest highlights of the Kährs Harmony Collection Engineered Wood Flooring. In addition to creating the strongest joints between boards, this glue-less mechanical system makes installation simple and quick.
If you have been using expansion joints when installing wood floors, then you can save a lot of money, stress and efforts with the Harmony collection. Thanks to the Woodloc 5S, these floors do not require expansion joints for more than 75% of the installation area.
Those concerned about the environmental impact of wood floors can rest easy! Kährs is well-known for its sustainable manufacturing methods. All the wood is locally sourced using green practices. All the wood waste is converted into electricity.
