Kährs offers several types of surface treatment. These include a variety of lacquers and oil. In 1984, Kährs was the first wood floor producer to implement an entirely solvent-free production process. Today all our surface treatments are solvent-free.


Lacquered floors are easy to maintain. Our silk lacquer complements the wood's character by accentuating its natural structure. It also makes the floor more hardwearing and easier to clean. Despite its strength, Kährs' lacquer coating is exceptionally thin and, unlike many other lacquers, does not conceal the structure of the wood. In addition, with Kährs satin lacquer there's no artificial shine.


Kährs matt lacquer is as hardwearing and easy to maintain as our satin lacquer. The subtle finish produces an untreated, bare wood look. A matt surface is coarser than a satin surface.


Wood treated with our ultra-matt lacquer feels and looks as if it was made from untreated, newly sawn timber, but has a strong, yet silky and invisible shield against wear and tear. It creates a surface that effectively absorbs the light – enhancing both the colour and feeling of the floor. The ultra-matt surface is coarser than a matt surface.


Oil brings out the fine structure and grain of the wood and enhances its natural colour. Floors treated with oil are easy to clean and maintain, but they need a little more care and should be oiled regularly. With proper care in accordance with Kährs maintenance programme, we recommend oiled floors for high traffic areas.


The high gloss lacquer gives your floor a shiny, polished look that enhances the beauty of the wood species you’ve chosen. It also protects your floor from everyday wear and tear.
