Benefits
+ Walking comfort

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.

Study run by IBV biomechanical institute in Valencia, Spain.

Benefits
+ Impact Resistance

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
+ Silence

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.

Study run by Entwicklungs- und Prüflabor Holztechnologie gmbH (EPH) in Germany according to IHD-W 431.

Benefits
+ Natural thermal insulation

Cork provides natural thermal insulation.

Studies show that cork is the most efficient material for preventing energy dispersion.

Due to its low thermal conductivity, it retains heat, providing an optimal floor temperature all year round.

Benefits
+ Body wellness

Cork floors offer the perfect balance between rigidity when walking and resilience in absorbing heel strike impacts, thereby reducing tension in the feet, arms, legs and back. Tests show that Wicanders cork floors provide the perfect balance between floors that are too hard or too soft. They reduce tension and fatigue from walking.
