I love finding sustainable products that are affordable and will perform to the standards required for retail and restaurant projects. Corkcomfort flooring by Wicanders is a new and unique cork veneer tile that can be installed as a floating floor (flooring that does not need nailed to the sub-floor) or as a glue down application.

These new floor tiles are constructed like an engineered hardwood product with six layers to provide dimensional stability for a floating floor install. The genius behind this product is the “hard-wearing surface layer” to protect the cork, and the high density fiberboard middle core that provides stability to the floor.

Not only is Corkcomfort a sustainable and appropriate flooring material for retail applications, it’s available in a wide range of color options—from whitewash, to green patina, to ebony. Also, if a floating floor is not required, a typical glue down cork product is also available, but it is much thinner. This product appears to be a solid cork tile with the hard-wearing surface layer on top to protect the cork material.

Wicander’s Corkcomfort tiles are a sustainable product that can contribute to LEED credits. Cork oak trees are never harmed or cut down to obtain the cork. The cork bark regrows on the tree, making cork a renewable resource. Corkcomfort also uses cork waste from the wine industry, which allows for both pre- and post-consumer waste to be incorporated into the cork tiles. Adhesives are low emitting and no formaldehyde is used.

Wicanders also has a Woodcomfort plank product with the same six layers as the Corkcomfort. The hard-wearing surface layer protects the wood veneer and the high-density fiberboard provides stability to the wood planks. Many species and colors are available in the Woodcomfort product.
