Cork is so slow to burn it’s classed as fire retardant, even when growing as the bark of our trees.
This helpful property helps keep our ancient forests safe, and it also makes your home safer when you lay one of our beautiful cork floors.
But cork’s list of amazing properties doesn’t stop at stopping fires. It’s also light, elastic, compressible and hypoallergenic. It insulates against sound, heat and cold.
And, perhaps most important of all, while growing as the bark of our trees, it stores many times its own weight of carbon, thus helping to reduce global warming.
This is why our cork floors are unique among hard floors. Every gram of cork used in their manufacture has prevented CO2 from entering the atmosphere.
