There is the Floating Floor a glueless Corkloc system (10.5mm, 12mm or 6mm thick depending on the finish), simply put the planks together and securely click them into place. Cork backed for extra sound insulation. This floor has very good sound insulation values but extra cork underlayment can be added if required for sound problem situations for e.g. kitchen areas we can supply JOIN SEALER to give a homogenous surfaced water resistant floor.
‘Hydrocork’ is a waterproof, flexible clic-together cork floor in wood effect. Ideal for bathrooms, kitchens or garden rooms. It is only 6.0mm thick.
You have two types of finishes on floating floors.
1) HPS (PVC) Surface Finish (High Performance Surface) has been developed for areas with heavy traffic such as commercial, business or general public areas. Ideal for busy kitchens, hallways etc.
2) WRT (Varnish) Surface Finish (Wear Resistance Technology) is the right choice to fit most demanding needs of domestic areas. This environmental friendly varnish is based on a ceramic compound which ensures exceptional strength and longevity.
Do remember that all floors need some sort of appropriate maintenance, and this information is given on the Wicanders website and with the flooring we supply.
