Cork Flooring Focus: Floating Planks
AmCork offers two types of cork flooring tiles: parquet tiles and floating planks. Today, we will discuss the benefits of cork floor floating planks. This flooring choice is designed to float over most uneven substrates and has an easy to install clock-n-lock snapping system. Our cork flooring floating planks are fit with a built-in acoustical cork underlayment. This naturally absorbs sounds typically associated with heavy footfalls and high heels. It is also a natural thermal insulator and will provide a temperate walking environment year round. Furthermore, your footsteps will also be cushioned, as the cork flooring acts as a natural shock absorber, showcasing its honeycombed cellular nature.
We proudly present over 20 different color and design options with our floating tile floors. Shown here, from left to right are: Sea Bark Cork Flooring, Iris Cork Flooring, Tropical Brown Cork Flooring, and Summer Cream Cork Flooring.
Each of these unique options is shipped in cartons that will cover an average of 21 square feet. They contain 7 planks per carton. Use our handy calculator or peruse all of our floating cork flooring planks to find what suits your interior design style and what products you will need to complete your flooring upgrade. We have so many favorites; it’s hard to pick just one. Order a sample of your favorite cork flooring pattern or collection to see how this amazing flooring material will fit in your exiting décor.
Keeping your cork floating floor tile clean is a breeze! Our cork flooring choices are factory finished to the highest of standards so that little time will be spent on cleaning and maintenance. All that is required to maintain cork floor tile is a regular vacuuming and light cleaning with a damp mop. Ammonia-based cleaners or chemicals must not be used to clean the floor. A cork floor should be treated as any quality wood flooring. As durable as cork flooring is, it must be remembered that it is still a natural product. A well-maintained cork floor will last for decades. Depending on how much foot traffic the floor receives, you will need to reapply recommended polyurethane sealant approximately 7-10 years in average residential applications. This could be once every year or two in a busy retail location. Additionally, a quality doormat at the entrance should be used to help protect the cork floor from outside grit and sand. Cork, as a natural product, may change color when exposed to direct sunlight, so use blinds or curtains to minimize this effect.
Each of our cork products are backed by our 25-year warranty and are guaranteed as a low-emission product by our GreenGuard Certification.
