Product 8:Amorim Cork Plank/CORKcomfort Line
Much like bell-bottoms, vests, and overalls, some materials make a comeback, too. Introducing...the new and improved cork floor, brought back to life by the Portuguese manufacturer Amorim Revestimentos, S.A., and represented by Wicanders. The Amorim Cork Plank, a part of their CORKcomfort line, is more durable, more eco-friendly, and best of all--more stylish. Cork Plank is reprocessed in order to make it look like it's distant cousin Oak. A ceramic micro-bead finish adds an appealing sheen and beveled edges. Low-maintenance, the floor simply requires a vacuum and damp mop to clean, is highly durable, and is a great insulator. Cork Plank also reduces stress on the joints more than normal hard-wood flooring and greatly reduces ambient noise. This floating floor system has low-VOC content and by absorbing CO2, it reverses emissions.
