Jakna Scale Hardness

While there are many factors to consider when choosing your hardwood flooring for your hardwood floor installation, durability of your hardwood is definitely one factor to think about. Janka Scale for hardwood floors is a tool to help you make those decisions. The harder a wood is, the more durable and strong it tends to be.  A very popular choice is red oak, such that it has become a benchmark in measuring.  Each hardwood species and type has it's own characteristics and  strength.
