WHAT IS CORK?
Cork is such a remarkable material that even modern
technology has been unable to match or surpass it. A
completely natural product, cork is harvested without
damaging or chopping down a single tree, making it the
ultimate 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 unique
qualities make it ideal for use in flooring, as it reduces
sound, is warm to the touch and comfortable to walk
CORK'S NATURAL PROPERTIES
Cork comes from the bark of the cork oak tree. It is
a renewable and sustainable resource, making it ideal
in terms of the ever increasing demand for conservation
of natural resources.
In cork oak plantations the first cork bark will not
be harvested from a tree until it is 25-30 years old,
as only then it is considered a fully grown tree. The
process of stripping off the bark in sections is a traditionally
manual one dating back many hundreds of years.
The tree is not damaged and the bark regrows completely,
taking on a smoother texture after each harvest. Harvesting
only occurs once every nine years and a cork oak can
live for 150-200 years, so it can be safely harvested
up to 20 times during its life cycle. It is a truly
inexhaustible and natural resource.
There isn't a man-made material that can match cork,
nor is one ever likely to take its place. Cork's structure
is very similar to that of a honeycomb: each square
centimetre is composed of 40 million cells. These cells,
as well as the spaces between them, are filled with
a gaseous mixture similar to air.
That is what makes cork so remarkable. The unique structure
and composition of cork creates the three most important
characteristics in its application as flooring: Thermal
insulation, Sound reduction
