The Climate+ Collection

Climate positive, PVC free, high performance cork flooring

Every plank is built on the same strong belief that products of the future should be more than just a collection of features, they should be absolutely sustainable, healthy, practical and have a positive impact on the future of the planet.

Design

Authentic cork and wood aesthetics

The Climate+ Collection is available in two versions: The natural cork aesthetic is explored through combinations of patterned veneers and colour washes, beautifully reimagining the traditional look of cork. For lovers of timber, Corkwood replaces the cork veneers with stunning, high definition wood prints finished with a gorgeous matte veneer, to produce an incredibly authentic looking timber floor.

 

Block Bone from the Climate + Collection, just one of a collection of stunning cork veneers that include organic and geometric patterns.

 

Corkwood Pumelo from the Climate+ Collection. The Corkwood range includes a beautiful selection of modern, traditional and rustic woods.

Technology

Fusing nature and technology

Our traditional Resist+ cork floating floors use a High Density Fibreboard core making the overall cork content about 32%. Climate+ replaces the HDF core with a Cork Rigid Core, a PVC-free core made from cork that improves stability and acoustics and results in a thinner, more flexible plank that contains up to 50% more cork, a truly sustainable raw material.

The uniqueness of our Climate+ floating floor system lies in its multi-layer construction. At its heart is the unique, PVC-free Cork Rigid Core that provides stability, with an integrated cork underlay that reinforces thermal and acoustic properties. Above the core is a 2.7mm layer of prime quality cork that provides superior performance in terms of comfort, noise reduction and warmth. The decorative surface is made up of the cork veneer or the digital print and the durable wear surface of UV cured, PVC-free acrylic matte varnish.

 

Sustainability

Being inspired by nature is the beginning, sustaining it is the real challenge

We believe the Climate+ Collection represents the future of flooring. It is a climate positive, high performance, PVC free, floating floor based on cork, a genuinely sustainable raw material. Every plank is built on the same strong belief that products of the future should be more than just a collection of features, they should be absolutely sustainable, healthy, practical and have a positive impact on the future of the planet.
