Cork contains millions of air-filled pockets in every cubic inch, the basis for its cushiony properties. These pockets compress under pressure and regain their shape as the pressure is removed. Because of this cork is elastic and compressible, which makes it very comfortable underfoot and almost impossible to dent. This characteristic which makes cork an ideal surface flooring material is also responsible for its success as an acoustic and thermal insulator. It’s also extremely durable as well as hypoallergenic, anti-microbial and non-toxic. And cork naturally repels insects.
Cork will help you achieve this first by one of the few flooring materials that is naturally sustainable. How is that possible, because cork is made from the bark of the cork oak tree. Only the bark is stripped from the tree, the rest is left to regenerate safe and undamaged. The bark product is then put through a manufacturing process that is geared to follow its green signature as well, using or adding only components that continue to carry that green mark. Cork carries a ‘green’ certificate from start to finish, so you know you’re using a great product.
