Kahrs Tres Collection Engineered Wood Flooring Review

The Kährs Tres Collection is a range of 3-strip engineered wood flooring. This means that the surface of each plank has been sawn from 3 different blocks of wood. So, the textures are different. The strips are arranged at random to arrive at textures that are visually stunning and practically hardwearing.

The Tres collection comprises floors of popular wood varieties including oak, ash and maple. These floors are available in stunning shades and are great for domestic interiors and commercial spaces.

Kährs Tres Collection In-Depth Review

The Tres floors feature a 3-layer construction, which contributes to their exceptional stability and durability. The top layer is made of solid hardwood. The middle layer, also called the core layer, is made of a softer variety of plywood while the base layer is made of a harder plywood. The 3 layers are fused to each other, which results in strong and stable planks.

The stability of the planks remains intact even in times of changing humidity and temperature levels. There’s no risk of water or moisture seeping into the insides of the planks, and causing them to warp, crack or bulge. As a result, you’ll have an intact floor underfoot during all seasons.

Enhancing the floor stability is the use of the innovative Woodloc 5S joint system. This is a mechanical joint system that does not require glue for fitting the joints. A simple click system is used to attach planks and make joints. As a result, the installation is fast and easy.

Woodloc 5S utilises a special locking tongue to ensure extraordinary joint strength – in fact, joints created using Woodloc 5S are the strongest in the current flooring market. So, the stability of your floor is completely assured!

The strong performance of Kährs Tres Collection does not compromise the looks of the floors. The natural solid wood texture of the floors is enhanced by natural surface treatments.

The silk matte finish highlights the natural texture of wood, enhancing their visual appeal. This finish makes the surface hardwearing and easier to clean.

If you are looking for a tough and durable yet stunning floor for your home with kids and pets, or for your commercial space with heavy traffic, a Tres floor can do wonders for you!

With modern buyers becoming more conscious about the environment, the flooring companies are raising the standards for eco-responsibility. Kährs definitely leads the way.

The Swedish flooring brand adheres to the strictest standards of environmental friendliness. It obtains wood from sources that follow responsible forestry methods. The surface generate electricit.
