Why Cork
Excellent Thermal Insulation

The air inside the cells makes it an excellent insulator, leading to very low thermal conductivity, over a wide range of temperatures.

What is cork?

Cork is the bark of the Cork Oak tree (Quercus suber L). It is a completely natural raw material, with unique properties which give it an unrivalled character. It is light, impermeable to liquids and gases, elastic and compressible, provides thermal and acoustic insulation, it is a fire retardant and highly abrasion-re…

Is it more comfortable to walk on the Corkeen system?

Cork surfaces have sufficient capability to withstand heavy traffic and weight. One of cork’s characteristics is its "memory" and it therefore recovers well from compression, very much like a wine cork stopper that expands after being pulled out of a bottle. Due to cork’s thermal insulation properties, the tempera…

Corkeen presents a significantly higher drainage capacity compared to solutions composed of rubber (EPDM and/or SBR) materials, that are traditionally used in safety surfacing solutions. Given cork’s natural features, Corkeen also has a great capacity for thermal insulation, permitting lower temperature accumulation on…
