Janka Wood Hardness Scale

Olympia Floors has provided you below with the top part of the Janka wood hardness scale that rates the hardness rating for many wood species. The higher the number, the harder the wood. There are no softer wood species used in hardwood flooring than the ones listed at the top of this scale, but there are indeed approximately some 35 harder species of hardwood than the Brazilian Maple listed here at the very bottom of this scale’s image, as this is not the complete, entire scale. Brazilian Maple is followed in hardness by Afrormosia, whose rating is 1560, and the hardest species of hardwood used in hardwood flooring is Brazilian Walnut, with a 3680 rating in hardness.
