The new range of cork flooring from Premium Floors , ReadyCork, offers floating floors which are truly representative of sustainability.
One of the original environment-friendly products, cork is quintessentially sustainable. In Portugal, the Cork Oak has a unique feature where the outer bark is the cork and can be first stripped after 25 years. The tree then regenerates and the new layers can be stripped at regular intervals of around nine years while the tree grows on for centuries.
Cork is also naturally hypoallergenic; with the patented Microban treatment, the growth of stain and odour causing bacteria, mould and mildew is inhibited. Cork is impact-resistant, and always returns to its original shape thanks to a natural memory. Cork is also low on emissions.
Quick-Step’s all-new ReadyCork Vita is a revolution in cork flooring and is available in planks measuring 1746 x 194 x 13.5mm, with a 3mm cork top layer, an integrated 1.5mm cork underlay for impact sound insulation and 9.0mm moisture resistant HDF core. The PUR Hot coating surface finish makes the ReadyCork Vita cork floors extremely hardwearing, resulting in durability beyond nature’s capabilities.
ReadyCork Vita’s colour palette comprises of five fabulous colours including Oak Antique, Oak Siena, Oak Pearl, Oak Java and Oak Blanc. The floor can be easily installed without the hassle of sanding, glue or sealants.
ReadyCork Vita cork floors also offer several practical benefits: Cork flooring is a better alternative to those who suffer from carpet allergies. Excellent sound and thermal insulation properties make cork floors perfect for most areas of the home.
