KÄHRS FLOORS - Thirteen Kährs Floors Receive FSC Certification

Reflecting its long-term environmental focus, Kährs has received FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certification for 13 wood floors produced throughout its range. They include eight oak floors from its Original and Linnea Ranges and all sports floors from its Activity Range, available in a choice of wood species.

Within Kährs European Natural Collections, from the Original Range, rustic Oak Ardenne and Oak Hampshire have received certification, along with even grained Oak Verona and Oak Siena. Meanwhile, FSC floors within the Linnea Range include Oak Amber, Biscuit, Coffee and Honey. Throughout the Activity sports floor range - within which floor’s feature integral shock-absorption and reinforcement properties – all designs are now FSC-certified and compliant to both DIN and EN Standards. Certification, in each case, means that the floors fulfil the demands for FSC labelled products.

Kährs commitment to the environment has received international recognition. Back in 1941, Kährs patented its eco-efficient, multi-layered floor design, on which its range is still based today. In 1993, it was the first floor manufacturer to receive ISO 9001 certification and in 1997 the company was certified according to the ISO 14001 environmental standard. Kährs was the first flooring manufacturer to produce floors with water-based finishes and to introduce the glueless, mechanical joint system Woodloc®.

Last year, 73% of all wood used in floor production came from Swedish forests surrounding its 40 hectare manufacturing site in Nybro, Sweden. During production, tree bark waste that is recovered from Kährs sawmill is used to provide district heat for its 75,000m² plant, neighbouring homes and businesses. The dry saw dust biomass waste is converted to energy pellets and is used to provide carbon-neutral energy for approximately 20,000 households in the region. Meanwhile in this, the UN’s Year of the Forest 2011, Kährs is working even more actively to support socially and environmentally responsible forestry globally, and has an ongoing dialogue with NGO organisations, such as WWF, EIA, Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance, and Greenpeace.
