Torlys Inc., a company synonymous with bringing innovative flooring solutions to market, launches a truly revolutionary new type of floor with CorkWood.
“CorkWood is a specially engineered floor that has been created to bring together all the best features and benefits of other types of floors in one superior, all-inclusive product,” said Brian Gencher, VP of marketing at Torlys. “It combines the striking look of wood with the long-standing durability of laminate, and the wonderful comfort of cork.”
The Beauty of Wood
There is nothing like the welcoming look of hardwood. The top layer of Torlys Cork- Wood is made of a high-definition digitally printed compressed layer of cork in beautifully realistic patterns of oak and walnut. This innovative new program is offered in two collections. CorkWood Designer, featuring extra-long six-inch planks in nine beautiful, on-trend colours. CorkWood Elite comes in planks almost four-inches long and a diverse range of five colours.
The Durability of Laminate
CorkWood is engineered with a durable HDF smart core for dent resistance and a 3mm-thick (Designer) or 2.5mm-thick (Elite) top layer of compressed cork. The polyurethane finish is equivalent to AC4 laminate and the sophisticated printing process makes CorkWood more fade resistant than its traditional counterparts. This means it will perform like laminate and retain the stunning hardwood look for years to come.
The Comfort of Cork
Along with the compressed cork top layer, CorkWood includes the Torlys CorkPlus attached underlay for added warmth and sound insulation. The CorkPlus underlay is even infused with Microban antimicrobial product protection that inhibits the growth of mould and mildew. This program, along with all other Torlys cork collections, is Forest Stewardship Council (FCS) certified, ensuring the wood and cork used in the manufacturing process comes from responsibly managed forests. Headquartered in Toronto, Ontario, Torlys is a fast expanding global flooring company that specializes in beautiful, responsible flooring. Torlys smart floors use the patented Uniclic joint to create an extensive selection of reusable flooring in leather, hardwood, laminate, cork, EverWood and EverTile and now CorkWood.
