About Cork Flooring

Cork Flooring is a product made out of the bark of the Cork oak Tree, which is ground up, processed into sheets, and baked in a kiln to produce tiles which are great for offices, light commercial, and residential usages. The cork flooring is mainly grown, harvested and manufactured in southern Europe, Portugal being the most predominant region.

Cork is a natural insulator, due to the pockets of air allowing warmth to be held in, making it a very warm floor to walk on, especially during the colder months. Cork is also a natural sound absorber, which makes it great for areas which are normally associated with echoes and other distracting ambient sounds such as hallways, foyers and basements.
