Wicanders Cork Essence is an easy to lay click cork flooring system designed for domestic use in dry areas such as living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms and hallways as well as light commercial applications.

The easy 2G jointing system enables the flooring to be installed either as a floating floor or for larger open plan areas or rooms with large expanses of glazing, the flooring can be glued to a suitable subfloor.

The highly stable 3 layer construction with integrated cork underlay enables installation over both water based or electric underfloor heated subfloors and provides both a thermal and acoustic benefit. The double cork construction results not only in a quieter environment by absorbing impact sound but also provides energy savings by reducing heat loss back into the subfloor.

The stunning designs are handcrafted using the finest Portuguese cork using a variety of agglomerated, block and strip cork veneers, creating floors suitable for both contemporary and classic interiors alike.

All designs are provided pre-finished with the unique Xtramatt+ surface which is a high resistance Acrylic UV finish which not only enhances the natural beauty of the cork but provides an environmentally friendly coating which ensures exceptional strength and longevity.
