Cork’s benefits come naturally, which makes it an excellent choice for the environmentally conscious. It is a naturally fire-resistant material as it generates a waxy substance called suberin, and will not release toxins if it burns. Suberin also gives cork anti-microbial properties, allowing it to resist mold and mildew. So when properly installed in a bath or kitchen, you’ll reap some first-rate benefits. Cork even naturally repels invasive insects like termites.
An important aspect which will make cork your flooring of choice is that it is a good sound and temperature insulator. This temperature-insulating material does not let heat or cold pass through the floor, an extremely imperative function come summer and winter. Furthermore, Cork flooring maintains a relative temperature of 70 degrees all year round, so your feet don’t freeze. Cork will also effectively lower invasive noise, generated from both outside or another room, as a mere 3mm of cork can mute sound by 10 decibels. The very structure of cork is what gives it these remarkable abilities. Like a honeycomb, cork airtight cells creates a material that is 50% air, light yet still durable.
Our 8mm cork glue down tiles comes as 5/16 in x 12 in x 24 in—dimensional planks. Implementing a square-edged design that will install seamlessly, this allows your floor to appear as one large finished unit. No separate underlayment is required since our 5/16 inch thick planks are 100% low-density sound absorbing cork.
