Benefits
The natural and innate flexibility of cork makes Wicander floors highly comfortable for walking. Studies show that after 45 minutes of walking on five different materials, Wicanders’ cork floors left users with an exceptionally high perception of comfort.
Benefits
Cork’s elasticity and compressibility allows it to adapt easily to pressure. This makes for a highly resistant and durable flooring. Tests show that Wicanders cork floors have the best shock absorbing performance.
Benefits
Cork is a natural acoustic insulator. Tests have confirmed that cork floors reduce thesound of walking by up to 53%. This is because of its mostly air-filled honeycomb structure, which allows it to absorb sound and vibrations.
Benefits
