8 09 2008

Look what we’ve been up to! You know we never rest when it comes to the latest innovations in cork oak flooring. You’re going to love building green with our new Cork Plank…just as nature intended.

ANNOUNCING: Wicanders Series 100 Cork Plank with Micro Bevel.

Cork Plank—a narrow board at 4 3/8 inches wideis produced and packaged in the USA. Our narrow planks represent a smart  mix of refined class and organic design. Aesthetically, this innovative size works in combination with cork oak’s timeless charm to create a highly personal touch so popular today in homes just like yours.

Our newest member of the Wicanders’ cork oak family boasts 12 stunning colors, including some of the most fashionable colors in flooring. Cork Plank is available in retail stores across the US right now.

Made with cutting edge technology that improves on our patented CorkLoc® floating floor system, Cork Plank’s “angle-drop” click allows for a faster and easier installation over virtually any subflooring system. Installers will love it because it’s very user-friendly!

Cork Plank’s four unique collections—Originals, Moods, Traces, and President—are all protected by Wicanders’ Xtreme WRT (Wear Resistant Technology) finish. WRT is a ceramic micro-bead innovation that is 4x more wear resistant than any in its class. WRT is also available on Wicanders Series 100 floors for commercial and residential applications.

Also recently introduced in the US, all of Wicanders’ flooring collections, including Cork Plank, are now made with Acrodur®, an Eco-technology by BASF. Acrodur® is a water-based, eco-friendly binder used in the agglomeration process. Acrodur® is 100% formaldehyde free which promotes superior eco-efficiency and energy savings.

Cork Plank is micro beveled on four sides, ushering in a new look for our Wicanders Cork Oak floors.  For high-moisture environments like kitchens and entryways, a glueless joint sealant called Click Seal® can be applied to the tongue side of the planks during installation, offering a virtually waterproof flooring application.

Like the other members of our Wicanders’ family, Cork Plank enjoys the many outstanding characteristics of cork oak.  Environmentally friendly and efficient, cork oak is a renewable and sustainable resource. Made of renewable raw material, cork absorbs CO2, reversing the effect of VOC emissions for healthier living.

New Cork Plank with Micro Bevel carries with it a 15 Year Residential Warranty, and a 5 Year Light Commercial Warranty.
