Stafford Flooring offers a green solution to flooring in the form of cork. This natural material is extremely sustainable due to the fact that trees are not cut down or damaged during the harvesting and creation of cork planks. In fact, a healthy tree can provide raw materials for hundreds of years, making it rapidly renewable, and effectively self-propagating.
This heavily protected species has great natural properties found in the cellular structure of the bark. Pockets of air (200 million cells per cubic inch) inhibit the passage of sound, moisture or gases, and act as a thermal insulator, trapping body heat underfoot. In addition, cork is anti-microbial, has tremendous “bounce-back” properties and offers one of the best slip-resistances of any natural material.
