Description

100% Waterproof + High Performance Finish + PVC-Free Rigid Core

A sustainable and healthy waterproof cork floor in a floating solution for high traffic and high moisture areas.

Cork WISE by Amorim is a waterproof floating floor featuring a PVC-free cork rigid core combined with the amazing natural properties of cork. 

The WISE line also features an engineered multilayer structure with an integrated cork underlayment for extra insulation. This state-of-the-art construction technology provides 5 layers for superior comfort (great for your legs and back), noise reduction (sound between and within rooms), and thermal insulation (for energy efficiency). Cork is actually better than wood and vinyl at retaining heat - and provides an optimal floor temperature by insulating against cold subfloors. It's comfortable to walk on, even barefoot, all year long.

We recommend this line of cork flooring as a sustainable and healthy alternative to luxury vinyl plank (LVP) flooring.  Thanks to new technology, there's a healthier way to build a rigid core without PVC and other harmful components. With Amorim's WISE line, you get an enhanced rigid core construction for both dimensional stability and protection against water PLUS the natural benefits of cork flooring in a floating floor that clicks and easily locks into place.  A waterproof floating cork floor designed for high traffic and high moisture areas - that's safe for the whole family.  Just the way we like it here at Greenhome - healthy for you and the planet!

This is a cork floor created for those who WANT sustainability, comfort, and maximum durability but NEED a non-toxic rigid core construction.

Cork Benefits



Wicanders Cork flooring acts as a noise buffer Wicanders Cork flooring is warmer than hardwood or tile Wicanders Cork flooring is softer and more flexible, and more comfortable to walk on. Wicanders Cork flooring is

Silence

Natural Thermal Insulation

Walking Comfort

Impact Resistance

Cork acts as a noise buffer between the floor and the rooms underneath because of its acoustically insulating properties - reducing that noisy foot traffic sound up to 53%.  And cork easily cuts noise within a room as well. This is especially beneficial in apartments or other areas more susceptible to outer sounds. Optimal floor temperature throughout the year thanks to its ability to hold warmth.  It's thermal insulating properties create a barrier between the cold subfloor and the comfortable temperature of your home.  And BONUS...we've noticed the added benefit of energy cost savings because of it! Cork provides a unique comfort in movement, even when walking barefoot, due to its natural softness and flexibility. It's also very forgiving on your legs and back, which is why we like to put it in rooms where you may be standing for longer periods of time, like the kitchen. Or "cushy" as we like to call it.  Cork flooring has a long life span thanks to its elasticity and compressibility, which allows it to "give" without damaging the structure.  It literally springs back from hard impacts! That means Grandma's china has a much better chance of staying intact when dropped.



Why Cork?



Cork is extremely durable thanks to its resistance to moisture. Cork harvesting is an environmentally friendly process that's done without destroying a single tree Cork is a natural fire retardant and doesn't emit toxic gas during combustion Cork helps protect against allergies by not absorbing dust or mites

Durability

Sustainability

Fire Retardant

Hypoallergenic

Cork has been used as flooring in buildings like the Harvard Law Library and the Library of Congress due to its durability.  It resists cracking & scuff marks and is airtight to gas and liquid, yet still breathable.  When properly maintained, cork flooring can last 40 years or more! Cork (or more accurately, bark) harvesting is an eco-friendly process that's done without cutting down or destroying a single tree.  And there are strict time limits on the extraction period. During its long lifetime - upwards of 200 years - the tree is continually regenerating bark, which makes the cork forest industry an ideal example of renewable production. Cork is also a natural fire retardant thanks to its unique cell structure and waxy, fire-resistant substance called suberin. It gives a very low conductivity to heat. And it burns without a flame and does not emit toxic gases during combustion. Cork is a great option for allergy sufferers because it's naturally mold and mildew resistant due to the waxy substance inherent in cork.  AND it's anti-microbial.  Cork is a healthy alternative to dust and allergen-collecting carpets.
