Wicanders Cork Oak Flooring, from Amorim Cork, features beautiful designs, outstanding natural and technological features, and eco-consciousness. Wicanders Cork is so silent and cushioned that it's used in libraries, conference rooms, and theatres. Cork also has outstanding thermal insulation properties, greater than wood, carpet, tile, and vinyl. Cork floors are a healthy and smart choice since they are impenetrable by moisture, insects, and gas, and they are fire-retardant. They are also naturally anti-allergenic, anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, and anti-static. Wicanders has researched and tested their cork floors against scuffs, scratches, and scoring to produce their Wear Resistance Technology and High Performance Surface. Cork floors are environmentally friendly. The bark from each cork oak tree is harvested every nine years. The tree is left unharmed, while the bark grows back to be harvested again.
