Cork’s Natural Power

Cork consists of a honeycomb structure, including thousands of microscopic cells, filled by an air-like gas and coated primarily by suberin and lignin. Suberin is the element that makes cork impermeable to liquids and gases, allowing it to age without deteriorating. In addition to its insulation capacity, cork has a se…

What is cork?

Cork is the bark of the Cork Oak tree (Quercus suber L). It is a completely natural raw material, with unique properties which give it an unrivalled character. It is light, impermeable to liquids and gases, elastic and compressible, provides thermal and acoustic insulation, it is a fire retardant and highly abrasion-re…

Is it more comfortable to walk on the Corkeen system?

Cork surfaces have sufficient capability to withstand heavy traffic and weight. One of cork’s characteristics is its "memory" and it therefore recovers well from compression, very much like a wine cork stopper that expands after being pulled out of a bottle. Due to cork’s thermal insulation properties, the tempera…
