The name Wicanders has always stood for superior technological innovation and continuous improvement. The latest revolution in flooring is the new Wicanders® Acousticork® NRT (Noise Reduction Technology). Wicanders has successfully developed a revolutionary cork-based core-layer for their flooring for significant improvement of both step sound and impact sound. Official test methods have proven that Wicanders® Acousticork® NRT has the best balance between impact sound and step sound. Independent tests show that Wicanders® Acousticork® NRT flooring achieved the best results in terms of step sound and impact sound when compared to a range of wood and laminate flooring being marketed as having acoustic properties.

If you are looking for a CORKLOC® flooring that meets the highest durability standards, Series 1000 is the perfect choice. It has never been easier to install and maintain, with state-of-the-art CORKPROTECT® technology, a new paraffin-based, all around edge sealing system to protect effectively against moisture.

The flooring ranges Series 1000 combine the natural characteristics of cork with the hard wearing surface that covers it and protects it from the aggressions of more intense use without taking away its natural beauty.

The Series 1000 have been designed using the most advanced technology to produce an easy to install floor.

The Series 1000 is not glued or nailed to the subfloor: it is a floating floor and its cohesion is guaranteed by the glueless CORKLOC® System.

Design
Cork agglomerate or Cork veneer appearance in its natural colour or factory coloured provides numerous possibilities of design

Surface Treatment
The high wear resistant surface of Series 1000 is protected by a special surface treatment - MGI, which guarantees the gloss uniformity and a more natural aspect. This treatment also improves the ease of maintenance, reducing the total cost inherent to the life of the floor.

Silence

  • In terms of step sound, given its sound propagation characteristics, Wicanders® Acousticork® NRT reaches values of 74 dB – approximately 10 dB better than the acoustic woods and laminates tested. The drum sound effect is reduced significantly. It will also dramatically reduce high frequency sound and therefore improve walking comfort.
  • Due to its excellent sound insulation properties, in terms of impact sound values (sound which your downstairs neighbours hear), Wicanders® Acousticork® NRT reaches a value of 18 dB which represents a 3 dB improvement on market standard values. You will feel serenity inside your home, and your downstairs neighbours will also be grateful for the quietness that you will transmit to them. Silence has never been heard like this before.

Extra comfort with every step you take

Additionally, the unique Wicanders® Acousticork® cork core absorbs the impact of every step, preventing the jarring effect and relieving pressure on the legs and back.
