Choose Cork Flooring For Great Sound And Thermal Insulation
is sustainable as it comes from the bark of the cork oak tree. It is a durable floor covering so is ideal for kitchens and bathrooms. Cork flooring comes in tile form with a distinctive appearance and natural colours so can be matched to any interior, whatever the colour or the style.
People often choose cork flooring as it is very resistant to wear. It is less affected by friction and impacts than most other hard surfaces because of the way it is composed. When cork is subjected to pressure, the gas in the cells is compressed and volume reduces considerably. When released from pressure, cork recovers very rapidly to its original shape – meaning it lasts for many years.
As well as being strong and easy to install, cork is a great insulator, so can help to bring your energy costs down. It also reduces the transmission of sound and vibration.
Cork flooring is extremely compressible, being comprised of 50% air, yet has terrific strength. Cork reduces heat loss in rooms and even body heat loss through the feet. Cork naturally maintains a comfortable temperature, without ever getting too hot or too cold. If you like to walk around your home barefoot then choose a cork floor - the warmth is immediately apparent.
In addition to the above benefits, cork flooring is a fire inhibitor, so does not spread the flame and does not release any toxic gases on combustion. It also repels bugs, termites and mold due to the naturally occurring substances held within it.
Cork flooring costs a lot less than most other types of flooring tiles and planks, so is a good way to alter a room without breaking the bank.Order your cork flooring online now, or call us on 02920 344358 if you have any questions.
