Modern Wood Flooring is Multilayer Flooring

There are various differences when it comes to the processing and construction of wood flooring. You certainly still know the old, creaking solid wood floors, often with large gaps between the joints that collect dirt over the years. It is not only possible that this old wood floor can swell or shrink more or less strongly as a result of changing humidity and temperature. Solid wood floors also consumes much more natural resources, which means

It is not only possible that this old wood floor can swell or shrink more or less strongly as a result of changing humidity and temperature. Solid wood floors also consumes much more natural resources, which means much more precious wood is required for the same floor space than with a multilayer wood floor.

HARO wood floors use latest research and decades of experience in the manufacturing of wood. This way, sophisticated wood floors with multilayer construction are created that convince with a long life and excellent laying properties. It is no coincidence that HARO is the market leader when it comes to wood flooring.

Multilayer: A good choice!

The wood floor multilayer construction with grains running in different directions reduces the natural swelling and shrinking of the wood by up to 70%.

And compared to solid wood floors, multilayer wood floors is also a better choice in terms of sustainability, eco-friendliness, and price-performance ratio.

Solid wood floors have some major drawbacks. Humidity fluctuations can cause the wood to warp, uneven subfloors require time-consuming sanding prior to installation, etc. In addition, a large amount of precious hardwood is needed to produce just a few square metres of flooring. Multilayer hardwood floor from HARO easily solves these issues by using a balanced 3-layer construction.

Here, the grain of the wood runs in different directions, which reduces the natural swelling and shrinking of the wood by up to 70% And compared to solid wood floors, multilayer hardwood floor is also the better choice in terms of sustainability, eco-friendliness, and price-performance ratio.

3-layer construction for floating installation, full glue-down installation or installation with self-adhesive ComforTec system

1. Approx. 3.5 mm (1/8’’) thick top layer of selected precious wood
2. Solid spruce finger strips as middle layer
3. Softwood backing veneer

Surface finish
Whether it’s the hard-wearing PERMADUR natural matt finish, the bioTec oil-wax finish, or naturaLin plus, the “breathing” natural oil finish – we put the same care and attention into all our surface finishes. From the selection of the raw materials to the application of up to 7 coats required for the PERMADUR finish, we take care that they will provide superior durability.

1. Precious wood wear layer
This is the top layer of a multilayer hardwood floor. It consists of carefully selected premium wood that has been well seasoned and dried and gently processed. Rely on our decades of experience in the production of Wood Flooring and enjoy the good feeling that you made the best choice.

2. Middle layer
This layer consists of cross-glued solid spruce finger strips which ensure the lifelong stability of HARO Engineered Wood Flooring. Though invisible from the outside, this layer is very labour and time-intensive to manufacture. We use only spruce of the same wood moisture content and the same orientation of annual rings. This is essential to guarantee that your hardwood flooring will remain stable. The task of the middle layer is to balance tensions in the top layer and thus guarantee maximum dimensional stability.

3. Bottom layer
A backing veneer made of softwood further increases the floor’s stability.
