Wood is rich with history! Which you can bring to life in your home. Bookworms might go for beech – after all, the word 'book' derives from the old Germanic word for beech. Music lovers, in turn, might prefer maple or cherry and choose their new floor to match their beloved instruments.
Have you made your choice? The decision for a particular wood type is often based less on logic than on a gut feeling. That's why we would like to invite you on a tour through our woods. We will show you interesting, amusing and fascinating facts about the different wood types in the HARO® range.
Different levels of hardness
Hardness is an important criterion for selecting the right parquet for an application.
Each wood type has a different hardness, which is not given as a single fixed value, but indicated by a hardness range that varies depending on the tree's natural growth.
Wood hardness is measured with the Brinell test, in which a 13/32'' (10 mm) diameter steel ball is pressed into the wood surface with a specified force and for a specified time. The Brinell hardness number (HB) is then calculated from the size of the indentation left in the wood. The harder the wood, the higher the Brinell hardness number.
A wood type with a high hardness level is recommended for rooms with heavy traffic (e.g. with outdoor shoes).
