Oak wood: a natural wonder of design and technology
It is its quality, durability, beauty and tradition, an optimum form stability, a high degree of hardness and the versatile treatment options that gives oak its very special charm.

Same applies to its indoor usage in form of oak parquet: despite of dailly stress, changes in humidity and temperature as well as minor mishaps – oak parquet always shows its most beautiful side in your home.

Oak parquet is a natural and hygienic floor covering. Germs, mites and other troublemakers don‘t stand a chance at parquet. Wood also has a natural antistatic effect and doesn’t attract dust – this combination makes our parquet particularly long-lasting and easy to care for. Vacuuming and, if necessary, wiping up damp is absolutely sufficient for the regular cleaning.
However, like all natural products, oak parquet is also subject to natural wear and tear, which is why an extra portion of cleaning and care might get necessary someday. In our specially designed range of cleaning and care products, you will find everything you need to maintain and strengthen the natural beauty and color intensity of your parquet floor over generations.
