Hardness values 

The surface of your wooden floor - the so-called wear layer is made exclusively from selected wood. Wood species differ in hardness, which are measured in Brinell. The higher the Brinell value the harder the wood and the more wear the floor can take. Not only the optics but also the parquets place of use should determine the type of wood you choose. The wood types oak and ash for example are particularly hard and therefore well suited for frequently used rooms. They also have a high raw density and are particularly easy to treat

Darkening and
color changes of wood

Good to know: Wood is a natural material and thus reacts to daylight by darkening or changing its color over time. These changes have a positive effect on your Scheucher parquet floor:

they intensify the original color of the wood and enhance its natural character. The most distinct color changes usually occur during the first weeks after installation.
