The inventions behind the Kahrs success

1941 Gustaf Kahr (Third generation from the founder Johan) was working on a door that does not warp because of different climate conditions. After finding a success with a multilayer door the concept was carried over to wooden flooring. This concept is still used in all engineered wooden flooring seventy years later. Because of this Kahrs can give you a stable floor to install in your home. It is because of fact this fact that Exact Flooring   prefers installing Kahrs Engineered wooden floors above sold wooden floors because you have a product warranty that your floors will stay intact through all seasons

1958 The first factory-lacquered floor Because wood requires a high degree of precision when manufacture it were of great importance that Kahrs found an manner to produce a semi-finished floor(semi finished means only needs to be installed)no sanding or smelly sealants needs to be used in your home. This was achieved in 1958. To view engineered wooden floors that have  been installed VIEW OUR GALLERY

Wood Floors and Ecology

Therefore Kahrs only purchase timber from members of the International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO). All members of the organization have pledged to work towards ecological forestry.
