The Beauty of Wood
There is nothing like the welcoming look of hardwood! The top layer of TORLYS CorkWood™ 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 6’ planks in 9 beautiful, on-trend colours. CorkWood™ Elite comes in planks almost 4’ long and a diverse range of 5 colours.

The Durability of Laminate
CorkWood™ is engineered with a durable HDF smart core for dent resistance and a 3mm (Designer) or 2.5mm (Elite) thick 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 FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) certified, ensuring the wood and cork used in the manufacturing process comes from responsibly managed forests.
