Exceptional material properties are determined by its structure.The structure of the cork like a cell out of millions of multilayer cells, impermeable to water and filled with a mixture of gaseous - nitrogen and oxygen.This allows traffic to recover its original shape after a physical impact or pressure on her and provides excellent heat and sound insulation characteristics.

cork flooring, which is easy, convenient and pleasant to walk significantly alleviate stress on the joints and spine, reduce noise while walking, have a significant slip resistance and do not require special care.

Cork as a natural antistatic not electrified, not gathering dust, has excellent anti-allergi
