Kährs launches eco-friendly World Collection
Kährs has launched its new World Collection, which provides an eco-friendly alternative to a tropical wood floor. The new sustainable oak floors are available in 1, 2 and 3-strip designs and have an authentic exotic stained finish in a choice of copper/red wine and rich burnt orange/topaz tones. The launch follows Kährs removal of all tropical species from its range, until guaranteed controlled sources can be found.
Collection styles include red toned 1-strip Cayenne, 2-strip Chili and 3-strip Habanero and topaz toned 1-strip Coriander, 2-strip Nutmeg and 3-strip Cardamom. Each design features Kährs glueless Woodloc joint for fast, easy installation and a durable lacquer prefinish for easy care.
All floors within the new World Collection feature the award-winning, eco-friendly construction patented by Kährs in 1941. They are crafted, in Sweden, from sustainable European Oak and are multi-layered, using hardwood down to the joint and fast-growing spruce and pine below, with the three layers laid at right angles to each other. As well as using the natural materials in the most nature-friendly way, the criss-cross construction offers 75% greater stability than a solid floor and it can be refurbished in exactly the same manner, i.e., down to the joint. During production, any parts of the log that cant be used are converted to bio-fuel and waste ash, in turn, is used to fertilise neighbouring forests.
