Cork Flooring

 

Consider Cork- the most environmentally friendly available - for use in every room in your home. This all-natural flooring product is a fully renewable resource that comes from the bark of a Cork Oak tree. This bark is harvested every nine years up to a total of eighteen to twenty harvests in the life of the tree. This natural phenomenon combined with some of the most advanced manufacturing technology in the world results in a Solida Cork floor.

 

                                                                                     Cork is made up of millions of air cells. These air cells produce a soft comfortable natural cushion floor, a naturally quiet and warm floor to walk on, and a durable, dent-resistant floor. Cork is hygienic, easy to maintain and suitable for any room in your home.

 

Cork, natures most perfect gift, has been fashioned into flooring for over a hundred years. The wide selection of Solida Cork designs, colours, and shapes offers endless design possibilities. Solida Cork floors can be custom coloured and shaped to match any decor.

Cork is the natural material carefully harvested from the bark of the cork oak tree, which grows only in the forest plantations of the western Mediterranean. It is a renewable and sustainable natural resource offering a wide range of funtional properties in addition to great flexibility of design.

 

No trees are destroyed in the production of cork. Harvesting the cork oak is not harmful to the tree. By using cork products, we keep the forest alive, and the habitat undisturbed.

 

Cork trees produce their bark to provide protection from droughts, fires, temperature fluctuations and other environmental conditions. This unique raw material with its lightweight, flexible honeycomb cellular structure is impermeable to liquids and gas, this makes it an ideal material for a myriad of household products.

 

Insulation - Because 90% of the tissue consists of gaseous matter, the density of cork is extremely low, giving the material wonderful insulating properties, thermal as well as accoustical.

 

Resilience - When cork is subjected to pressure, the gas is compressed and volume decreases considerably. This action creates a comfortable firm but cushiony walking surface.

 

Durability - Cork is remarkably resistant to wear, as due to its cellular structure, it is less affected by impact and friction than other hard surface materials.

 

Impermeability - The presence of Suberin, a natural waxy substance, makes cork impervious to both liquid and gas. As a result, it does not rot.

 

Hypoallergenic - Cork does not absorb dust, consequently it does not cause allergies.

 

Fire Retardant - A natural fire retardant, cork does not spread flames, and it does not release toxic gases during combustion.

 

Cork is available in several different styles, stains, pre-finished or unfinished, with beveled or square edges, with a 'clic' glueless installation system, as a floating floor or full glue down installation, in lots of sizes - stop in today to see this unique product in flooring.
