The timeless classic convinces with a wealth of variants.
Oak wood has always been praised for its resilience. This is because this tree species is naturally robust and can withstand the most adverse conditions. Thus, in the course of history, the oak quickly became a symbol of strength, endurance and a long life. All these positive attributes can also be easily transferred to oak planks.
Due to the positive properties of the wood, houses and ships in Europe were built from oak for centuries. Even the most beautiful buildings in Venice have been supported by oak columns for more than 500 years. So when you choose parquet made of oak, you can be sure that you will have a stable floor covering in your home that you will enjoy for many years.

Tough but hearty - parquet made of oak wood
No matter whether the kids are running around the house or the neighbours are coming over for dinner. Parquet made of oak can withstand any stress. Because oak parquet is one of the hardest floors made of European wood. Hardly any other wood has greater strength and elasticity. And although oak parquet is already considered a very hard wood, this can be increased even further, e.g. with our parquet oak Carré from parkettmanufaktur by HARO. There, the top layer is cut across the trunk - also known as end grain in technical jargon.
Is there any colour change in oak parquet over time?
Since wood is a natural product, the colour of parquet changes when exposed to the sun's rays. Light parquet darkens over time, while dark parquet becomes lighter.
Therefore, even the light-coloured oak parquet becomes somewhat darker under long-term UV exposure. With thermally treated woods, however, the colour change is significantly less. Agate oak, for example, is one of the most colour-stable wood floors. Here, the colour hardly changes even after years. Thermo Oak Forte becomes slightly lighter, while Amber Oak darkens slightly.
