Back it up with two cork sub-layers, packed full of the natural benefits of cork, and a HDF fiberboard, and you’ve got a floating floor that can take the hits while looking fantastic doing it.
To be even more specific, our vinyl-like surface layer is made up of 0.2mm of polypropylene. It sits on a bed of 3mm of cork fused to a 6mm layer HDF fiberboard before being attached to another 1.5mm cork underlay. These two layers of cork provides the acoustic and thermal properties while the HDF layer gives it rigidity.
Available only as a floating floor, this product comes in single count cartons that will cover 16.28sf, a 5 plank count. Each square-edge 10.5mm x 210mm x 1200mm (7/16 inch x 8.27 inches x 4ft) plank is composed of a thin Polypropylene Embossed Finish surface fused to a 3mm layer of cork backing. A 6mm E1 Grade Moisture Resistant HDF or High Density Fibreboard core/middle layer comes next, followed by a 1.5mm cork underlayment. The underside also aides in giving that layer of comfort that eases sore feet and joints. Besides this, cork is a very hygienic flooring material that resists mold, termites, and mildew.

Our Fusion cork flooring is beautifully decorative. As an alternative to traditional flooring materials, it provides truly beneficial properties as well. A cork floor has a cellular structure that is made of 50% air. Each cubic centimeter of cork's honeycomb structure contains between 30 and 40 million cells. This helps to make cork one of the best shock and sound absorbent materials, able to quiet and diminish impact or noise transfer by up to 10 decibels per 3mm of thickness and provide a solid barrier against heat transfer. Keeping it warm and quiet.
