Many developers pay attention to use of especially ecological materials when choosing construction materials. Independent quality seals and certificates are the most important indicator in this respect. The Swedish organisation SundaHus evaluates construction products on a scale of A (very good) to B, C+ and C to D (bad) with respect to their constituent materials and substances. This has allowed an extensive database to be developed, which provides insight into the composition of the individual construction materials.
Many developers in Sweden and throughout Scandinavia attach great importance to the use of construction materials that have at least a B classification. In the independent tests carried out by SundaHus, our parquet floors were awarded the coveted B class certificate in accordance with the new and stricter assessment criteria. We are delighted that our HARO PARQUET 4000 is now also certified in Scandinavia in line with ecological principles. After all, our aim with all of our products is to always fulfil the regional requirements.
Our HARO® products are among the best in the market. This was confirmed by various awards, prizes and quality labels that we have received for our high-quality HARO® product range. In tests by the Heimwerker Praxis home improvement magazine and in the parquet test by the Parkett Welt magazine, top scores were achieved by HARO® Parquet 4000 Plank 1-Strip Oak Sauvage brushed 2V, HARO® Cork Floor Corkett® Lagos and HARO® Cork Floor Corkett® Arteo Oak*. They have now been joined by another winner: our DISANO by HARO® design floor with the Holm Oak Creme style was awarded the “very good” rating by the ÖKO-Test magazine because DISANO is completely free from PVC and plasticizers. We are also very proud of our innovative sunProtect technology, which won the Woody Award. This innovation helps to counteract natural color changes in wood under the influence of light. We are delighted with this prestigious award in recognition of our HARO® quality philosophy.
Best product 2017
Top rating for HARO DISANO Classic Aqua
In its January 2017 edition, Heimwerker Praxis (a German magazine for home improvement) said about HARO:
DISANO Classic Aqua by HARO combines many good properties of flooring made of other materials. It is almost as warm as carpet or parquet, as hard-wearing as laminate floors and quiet when it comes to room and footfall sound. The floor is delivered in long-plank format and has a multi-layer construction. The additional Elastotec load-distribution layer ensures improved moisture protection and increased stability, and makes the surface even more flexible and pleasant for walking on. DISANO Classic Aqua is installed in the same way as click laminate or parquet floors. It is 100% free of PVC, plasticisers, phtalates and heavy metals, and ensures a healthy indoor climate. With its level of use 33, it is suitable for use in commercial applications and with glue-down installation even for use in damp rooms. In a field-test, the floor could be comfortably installed by one person. The gap size is very good and the surface tough and durable. A great floor worth its price and one of our top-rated products of 2017.
HARO® Laminate Floor is test winner
in the Heimwerker Praxis special issue 2014
In a test of five premium-class laminate floors, HARO® scooped the win with its Tritty 100 series. The HARO® floor was chosen as the test winner with a score of 1.5 by the editors of “Fußböden für ein schönes Zuhause”, which is a special issue on floor coverings published by the German home improvement magazine Heimwerker Praxis.
The products were tested for installation, removal and gap formation. In addition, tests for abrasion resistance and point loads as well as the resistance to spilled water or a dropped knife were conducted in order to check the floors' suitability for everyday use. The acoustic properties of the floors were determined in walking tests and in noise tests with toys. Our HARO® Laminate Floor Tritty 100 (Oak Italica Smoked authentic*, standard format) achieved a “very good” rating in all areas and thus won the test.
rates healthy living design floor DISANO by HARO "very good"!
After being awarded the Blue Angel environmental label and the ECO-Institut label, the Disano by HARO® design floor for healthy living has now received yet another accolade: DISANO's Holm Oak Creme style has recently been awarded the “very good” rating by the ÖKO-Test magazine. No wonder, considering the fact that this floor is produced from innovative materials ensuring that it is completely free from PVC and plasticizers. In addition, it is soft and warm underfoot, durable, and easy to maintain. ÖKO-Test tested eleven multi-layer engineered floors with different surfaces for harmful substances and checked their performance in use. All the details can be found in the ÖKO-Test magazine issue 10/2014.
The Holm Oak style of Disano by HARO®, the design floor for healthy living, achieved excellent scores for ingredients, electrostatic surface voltage, durability and moisture resistance, and thus received an overall rating of “very good”. This great result gives home owners the peace of mind of choosing a sustainable and healthy product that provides reliable performance in everyday use. As HARO® uses no PVC or plasticizers, its DISANO products offer a healthy alternative to conventional vinyl and LVT flooring. The long plank format (9 1/4'' x 80 1/8'') is particularly impressive. Combined with the wide choice of authentic wood styles and the real bevel on all four sides, it looks like real wood planks. In addition, the floor is quick and easy to install and suitable for use with underfloor heating. The “very good” Disano by HARO® floor is available from your local HARO® dealer.

Top score 1.2
HARO® Cork Floor Corkett® Lagos Natur
Cork is an impressive material in terms of ecology, building biology and ergonomics. It is warm underfoot, antistatic, highly resistant to all kinds of wear and tear, and it offers excellent heat and sound insulation. With its high elasticity, the floor helps to cushion each step and reduce strain on joints and spine.
The HARO® Cork Floor Corkett® Lagos Natur was the best in all these aspects in the comparison test carried out by the Heimwerker Praxis home improvement magazine (issue May / June 2013)! The jury was particularly impressed with the resistance of its surface. It withstood the impact of stiletto heels and was unaffected by water or burning cigarettes.
"If there is one click system for floor coverings at the moment that is pretty much perfect, it's HARO®."
"…the HARO® floor also scores points for the low noise level."
Top score 1.3
HARO® Cork Floor Corkett® Arteo Oak* textured
And yet another HARO® product is among the best in the market: In a cork floor test by the Heimwerker Praxis home improvement magazine (issue 3/2012) / "Upper Class", HARO® Corkett® Arteo Oak textured was awarded the best score of 1.3, which only two products achieved!
The jury summed up the result: "A great floor!"
Naturally resilient cork with a deceptively authentic wood look: HARO® CORKETT® Arteo opens up amazing new design possibilities. This striking cork floor has been developed by combining our decades of experience as Germany's leading parquet manufacturer with state-of-the-art technology. Arteo's high-quality cork top layer is digitally printed with a wood design that is almost indistinguishable from the original. Choose between the appealing wood designs – Stripes, Oak, Oak Grey, Oak White, Chestnut and Walnut – and the Elements fantasy design ... and experience a new cork dimension.
Special award for HARO® Takteo
Parquet floor for barrier-free living wins AIT innovation award
A very special accolade was presented to Hamberger Flooring at the 12th AIT Innovation Award “Architecture and Floor” at the Domotex 2012 trade show in Hanover, Germany. The newly developed HARO® Takteo parquet floor received the “Special Award” in the “Products of High Architectural Quality” category. HARO® Takteo is an innovative, patented ground surface indicator system based on parquet. Visually impaired persons can detect the different geometries with a white stick and, at the same time, they can also hear the difference thanks to sound sheets that are factory-fitted to the board underside. This system fully meets the objective of the "principle of two senses", which significantly increases the safety of tactile guide systems according to a person's sensory perception.
Top score 1.4
HARO® Parquet 4000 Plank 1-Strip Oak Sauvage brushed 2V
Parquet is a durable floor covering for a comfortable, cozy home. This was demonstrated in a comparison of four click parquet floors carried out by "Parkett Welt 2011", a special issue of the Heimwerker Praxis home improvement magazine. With a score of 1.4, HARO® Parquet 4000 Plank 1-Strip Oak Sauvage brushed 2V delivered good results in all the test criteria and was voted by the testers as the winner in the upper class.
The products were tested for installation, removal and gap formation. The "everyday life" of a floor covering was also simulated: the contestants had to put up with water, a burning cigarette and a sharp knife, as well as sand for testing their abrasion resistance. All that was no problem for HARO® Plank 1-Strip Oak - which just goes to show the superior quality of German build brand-name flooring made by HARO®. A reliable basis for all living environments. So, if you would like to bring home the test winner made in Germany, stop by your HARO® dealer straight away.
HARO® wins HolzLand Award 2010
Newly developed quiet laminate floor wins award as “Most innovative product for consumers”
HARO® received the HolzLand Award 2010 for a new laminate floor with particularly good sound insulation properties. Compared with floating laminate floors with standard insulation, the HARO® Laminate Floor Silent CT provides a room sound reduction of more than 60%** and is therefore currently the quietest real laminate floor around. Each floorboard is factory-fitted with self-adhesive strips which firmly fix the floor to the subfloor. The result is room acoustics that sound remarkably like a full glue-down floor. For HARO®, the HolzLand Award 2010 is a great recognition of their work, and a motivation and encouragement to continue developing market-ready, innovative products that offer users tangible benefits.
The HolzLand Award is presented for newly developed products and sales solutions. It goes to companies that make strategic use of current trend developments by developing innovative solutions for their customers.
