SILENCE

Cork is an extremely efficient natural sound absorber because its cells work as an acoustic insulator. Amorim Cork Flooring floors can easily cut noise within a room (walking sound), and act as a noise buffer between the floor and the rooms underneath (impact sound), making it exceptionally efficient to use in residential or commercial spaces. Comparing the walking sound between cork and laminate floors, tests confirm that cork floors have an exceptional result reducing the walking sound up to 53%.

Natural Thermal Insulation

The natural thermal insulation properties of cork make Wicanders floors very energy efficient providing a pleasant touch, even barefoot, and an optimal temperature all year round which contributes to an overall comfort. When testing foot temperature in contact with four different materials, cork floors stand out as being the best solution to retain heat. Better than wood floors and by far better than vinyl or ceramic floors when it comes to avoid energy dispersion.
