Durable, eco-friendly, noise absorbent, and fire resistant

Cork flooring is becoming more and more popular because it has so many valuable properties. The bark of the cork tree was designed to protect the tree during its average 500-year lifespan. The tree isn’t chopped down, instead the cork is stripped off the tree every nine years, which makes it an environmentally conscious alternative to other flooring products. Due to its original purpose of protecting the cork tree, cork retains its natural safety features such as being incredibly flexible and inherently fire resistant. Cork is also resistant to temperature changes, making it a soft feel as you walk across the floor.

A large portion of cork comes from Portugal and Spain. Over 50% of cork comes from cork forests in Portugal and Spain. The trees in these areas live over 300 years. Cork can also be found in other Mediterranean countries. Most people think of wine stoppers when they think of cork. However, sheets of cork are used to make bulletin boards, floors and wall tile.
