Durability is a major factor to be considered when selecting a floor. Schenck & Company is pleased to provide you with this valuable resource to assist you with your decision.
Our chart is based on the Janka Hardness Scale which is the industry standard for gauging the ability of various wood species to resist denting and tolerate normal wear. It also indicates the effort required to either nail or saw the particular wood species.
The woods are listed from hardest to softest, so the higher the number, the harder the wood.
