Cork Floating Floors & Tiles

Cork comes from the outer bark of the cork oak tree, Quercus Suber, which grows predominantly in the Mediterranean region of the world. The bark of the tree is composed of an agglomeration of dead cells filled with air and lined with alternating layers of cellulose and suberin. The air gaps in cork is what makes it such a good sound and heat insulator. Cork floats in water because of the air gaps. In fact, the air gaps in cork makes cork flooring the quietest environmentally friendly floor covering known to man. The use of cork as a raw material dates back to the Phoenician and Greek times. Because of its use as wine bottle stoppers, cork began to be known all over the world. In fact, it is the only material that manages to make a perfect sealing during the ageing of the wine.
