Elegant and sophisticated, quiet, soft and warm yet easy to care for and maintain, durable and environmentally friendly. Cork's natural beauty and comfort will create surprisingly beautiful and elegant spaces. The insulation properties of cork will reduce sound transmission and temperature variation, creating a more intimate atmosphere. Cork floors are perfect for residential and light commercial applications, bringing the natural warmth and comfort to your environment. Tiles consisting of a bonded cork veneer over agglomerated cork floor covering and a back layer of soft agglomerated cork.
Unlike other cork tiles on the market, our cork tiles are rated 450-500Kg/m3 and are suitable for commercial use. For home owners, this means you can expect a much longer life than our competitor’s tiles.
Cork tiles can be easily glued onto a clean flat surface. To protect the subfloor and the adhesive, we require 1-3 coats of water-based polyurethane varnish to be applied after installation
Cork is the outer bark of the cork oak tree, which grows mainly in the Mediterranean region of the world.
These trees have a lifespan of about 200 years. Each cork tree must be 20 to 25 years old before it can provide its first harvest of cork. After extracting the cork a new layer starts regenerating. Nine years must to pass before the next harvest can take place
"If the economic value of forests is not maintained, cork areas will be abandoned, threatening more fires and desertification, as well as job losses" Paolo Lombardi, Director, WWF Mediterranean Programme
The cork oak remains the only tree whose bark can regenerate itself after harvest, leaving the tree unharmed. It is truly, a renewable environmentally friendly resource. This exceptional ability to shed its bark makes cork a naturally sustainable product By purchasing cork products, we contribute to the preservation of the cork oak forests.
A typical tree produces several hundred kilograms of cork at each harvesting and will survive for many generations. The cork harvesting is made in a sustainable manner and does not harm the tree which is never cut down or removed.
