About The Solid Wood Flooring Company 

'We pride ourselves on the service we offer and being a family company, working on the principles of high quality products, good service and competitive pricing'

Martyn Ryder established the company after extensive research into the flooring market and in particular wood flooring. In general the quality of cheap imports and lack of home grown products meant there was an opportunity to develop high quality hardwood flooring jointly with interior designers and architects.

The Owners and Directors of The Solid Wood Flooring Company has made it a policy to only source from well managed legal sustainable forests and be responsible not only to the environment but also our clients, staff and contractors. We unreservedly condemn illegal logging and will not manufacture some exotic species as we believe that a lot are from questionable sources. With modern oiled finishes there are so many options that it seems a shame for companies to still sell flooring that comes from our ever reducing rain forest.

We only manufacture our own wooden flooring and can therefore control the sources of our raw material unlike a large number of our competitors who buy from traders .We are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC® C007915) with a chain of custody certificate which means that all our FSC certified flooring can be traced back to the forest where it was harvested which ensures that it is properly managed. Further details can be found on the web site http://www.fsc.org/

New Products....Kahrs wood flooring

RGN Flooring Supplies are now a distributor of Kahrs Wood Flooring..

History of Kahrs
Kährs is one of the oldest manufacturers of wood floors in the world and also one of the most innovative.
It began in 1857 when Johan Kähr the elder setup a shop in Nybro, Sweden, crafting wooden utility goods such as parts for spinning wheels.
In 1919, Gustaf Kähr, grandson of the founder, set up the company AB Gustaf Kähr. Under his leadership the company developed and became an important and innovative producer of woodenOne of Europe's leasing toy manufacturer beginning 1900s doors, toys, furniture and flooring. Gustaf was dedicated to find efficient ways to use the sustainable wood raw material and to improve the stability of wood when used in building materials.
His perseverance paid off when in 1937 he received the patent for the invention of the modern multi-layer, laminated door.
Following upon this success Gustaf Kähr worked hard to find a solution for the problem of gapping, twisting and cupping of solid wood floors. After several years Kährs was awarded a patent, in 1941, for the invention of today’s modern engineered hardwood floor, the multilayer floor


    





Experience is the best innovator. With more than 150 years in the business, Kährs is one of the oldest manufacturers of wood floors in the world. 
Kährs is still located in the town of Nybro, deep in the heart of a Swedish forest, where our company was born in 1857. The wood knowledge we have accumulated over the years has been passed down from generation to generation.
We are constantly discussing new ideas how to improve our floors. At work, we are trying, testing and eventually succeeding. But the goal is always the same: how to find ways to make our floors even better looking, stronger, easier to install and more sustainable.
We're proud that people all over the world appreciate the result. 
Today, our floors can be found in homes, offices, shops, hotels, concert halls, theaters and sports arenas from Europe and Asia to the Americas.


Kahrs Innovations

1941 – The multi-layer parquet board is born

A milestone in Kährs’ history – as well as in the history of wood flooring – was reached in 1941. Gustaf Kähr, grandson of the founder, was granted a patent for the multi-layered parquet board and the world’s first engineered parquet was born.
 Multi layer invention

1958 – The first factory-lacquered floor

Previously, floors were installed and sanded before being lacquered on site. The production of a factory lacquered floor required a high degree of precision to ensure that the surface of the floor was smooth and consistent in use. Kährs introduced an accuracy in production that was unparalleled in wood processing.
 First prefinished parquet

1965 – The first sports floor

Kährs patented a completely new sports floor construction. Boards were nailed to a flexible batten system, which resulted in a floor that was able to absorb impacts and give a more uniform response to sports activities. Most modern sports floors are still based on this construction.
 First sports floor

1984 – Solvent-free lacquer

Kährs began its own environmental programme long before it became general practice in the industry. Kährs was the first floor manufacturer to be able to boast an entirely solvent-free production process.

1995 – Introducing a new generation of wood floors: Linnea

Kährs introduced Linnea, a floor range with outstanding qualities. Whilst Linnea has a thin surface layer, it is as hard and durable as many wood imitations, such as laminate floors. Linnea offers a combination of style, performance and ease of installation, and it´s eco-friendly, economical and genuine wood too.
 Linnea

2000 – Woodloc®, a world innovation

Kährs introduced the world’s first parquet floor with a glueless Woodloc® joint. The technology was seen as revolutionary, resulting in faster installation and giving perfect results, as well as eliminating gapping between the boards, caused by climate-change.

2004 – Activity Floor, the new sports star

Kährs developed and launched a new sports floor. Activity Floor can be laid quickly and over larger areas. It is approved by the global standard for sports floors - DIN - and used at major sporting events, such as the FISAF World and European Aerobics Championships.

2010 – The next generation wood joint

Kährs launched its next generation Woodloc® joint system – Woodloc® 5S. The revolutionary new joint makes installation even faster and easier, while producing a stronger floor.

2011 – The world's first wood floors made from dual FSC® and Faitrade-certified wood.

Kährs manufactures and sells the world's first floor with both FSC® and Fairtrade labeled wood. Dual certification not only supports the restoration of biodiversity in the forests but will help alleviate poverty by bringing a sustainable income opportunity to local tree farmers/foresters.
