Cork is a natural material that comes from the bark of the cork oak tree, with unique and incomparable qualities. Its cell structure resembles a honeycomb, enabling it to act as a natural thermal and sound insulator and also providing shock absorbing properties. These exclusive qualities of cork make it ideal to use in flooring, as it grants exceptional comfort while also being a renewable and sustainable resource.
Cork forests are protected resources and the harvesting of cork is strictly managed. The tree is not hurt or damaged during harvesting, shedding the bark is part of a natural cycle for the tree.

Thanks to the acoustic insulation provided by cork, Wicanders floors can easily cut noise within and between rooms. Comparing the walking sound between cork and laminate floors, tests confirm that cork floors have an exceptional result reducing the sound up to 53%.
+ NATURAL THERMAL INSULATION
The natural thermal properties of cork make Wicanders floors very energy efficient, providing an optimal temperature all year round. When testing foot temperature in contact with four different materials, cork floors stand out as being the best solution to retain heat. Better than wood and by far better than vinyl or ceramic when it comes to avoid energy dispersion.
+ WALKING COMFORT
Cork floors are very comfortable to walk on, due to cork's natural and inherent flexibility, providing a unique comfort in movement. When testing the level of comfort perception of people walking for 45 minutes over five different materials, results show that Wicanders cork floors have a great outcome. With high comfort perception, it outperforms linoleum, laminate and ceramic floors
+ BODY WELLNESS
Wicanders floors are stable enough to avoid the leg and back stress that is generated by walking on too hard or too soft floors. Softer than laminate and harder than carpets, Wicanders cork floors are the perfect mix to reduce heel strike impacts and related body tensions, but stable enough to help the foot impulse and provide the needed stability to reduce effort on walking and decrease body fatigue.
+ IMPACT RESISTANCE
Due to cork's resilience and elasticity, Wicanders floors have the ability to bounce back from hard impacts. Tests show that Wicanders cork floors have the highest shock absorbing performance. When an object accidentally falls in a cork or in a laminate floor, different results come through.
Fast & Easy Installation
Floating floors are easy and fast to install. And in glue down floors there is no need to have a special subfloor preparation and only require the use of a unilateral glue, so they save time and reduce installation expenses.
Low & Easy Maintenance
The special surface finishing of Corkcomfort floors make them easier to clean and maintain.
Cork comes from the bark of the cork oak tree. It is removed from the trunk by hand without ever damaging the tree. Every year a new bark grows making it a renewable and sustainable resource.
