Cork is a completely natural product, harvested without damaging or chopping down trees, making it an environmentally friendly product. Cork is made of millions of cork cells – each cell functioning as a miniature sound and thermal insulator, as well as a miniature pressure and shock absorber.
By regaining its shape time and time again, no matter how much it is walked on or how long furniture stands on it, cork always retains its elasticity. These qualities make it suitable for use in flooring, as it reduces sound, is warm to the touch and comfortable to walk on.
The cork inner structure in all Wicanders floors is guaranteed and certified to cut noise. The cork reduces sound transmission between and within rooms. The cork floors come with surface finishes that put a stop to entrapped dirt, germs or fungus.
