Hardness & Stability Chart
We invite you to use the charts below as a reference. For further information on a specific wood species, please feel free to contact us with any questions concerning a particular species of wood you are considering for a specific application.
Relative Hardness of Selected
Wood Flooring Species (Ranked by Janka hardness rating)
The Janka (or side) hardness test measures the force required to embed a .444-inch steel ball to half its diameter in wood. It is one of the best measures of the ability of a wood species to withstand denting and wear. By the same token, it is also a good indicator of how hard or easy a species is to saw or nail. Northern red oak, for example, has a Janka hardness rating of 1290. Brazilian cherry, with a rating of 2350, is nearly twice as hard.
