Cali Bamboo, a leading manufacturer in green building materials for residential and commercial projects made primarily from bamboo, today announced its first GreenClaimed flooring line created from cork, another highly renewable and recycled material.
GreenClaimed Cork Flooring is a click-and-lock product manufactured from reclaimed cork used in the wine industry, and is one of the first cork flooring lines available in a 5.5 inch by 48 inch plank format.
“The new plank format gives our new cork floors the look and feel of a hardwood but can be installed where hardwoods shouldn’t such as bathrooms and high moisture prone areas.” said Jeff Goldberg, CEO and founder of Cali Bamboo. “If you are familiar with wine tops, then you know that cork has some elastic properties which make for an amazingly durable and softer floor. This, coupled with the fact that the floor is highly resilient and comes from a sustainable and recycled resource, makes cork a perfect complement to our new GreenClaimed brand.”
GreenClaimed cork flooring has the added benefit of insulating against both temperature and noise. The low-maintenance, visually appealing product line is also naturally mold and water resistant which can damage traditional hardwoods.
“We’re excited to offer our customers a new flooring material option,” says Tanner Haigwood Cali Bamboo’s Vice President of Sales. “They have a travertine natural stone look but in a hardwood format with unique compression and insulation properties that you just can’t get with any other material.”
The new cork plank flooring family ranges in color from a carrara marble shade through a contemporary grey up to a dark charcoal and everything in between. All seven flooring options are manufactured by Cali Bamboo in Portugal under the GreenClaimed brand and are now available nationwide. With ultra-low VOC, GreenClaimed cork flooring is also CARB Phase 2 compliant. Staying true to the company mission, this collection is eco-friendly and LEED credit qualified through the U.S. Green Building Council.
