New Educational Course on Cork Flooring
First accredited course on Cork Flooring for Architects, Specifiers and Designers. This special Green CEU is available for free online.
By: Globus Cork Inc
Cork is the environmentally sound choice for flooring. Globus Cork products will help companies achieve LEED points and meet state and city green requirements. The cork oak tree grown in the Mediterranean is never destroyed to produce cork products. The Cork bark is trimmed from the tree every 9 years, leaving the forest undamaged as the tree grows more bark.. All the benefits of the living tree remain such as carbon reduction and forest biodiversity while the bark re-grows. Cork used by Globus Cork tiles is a recycled material made from the waste of the wine stopper industry. All finishes, stains and adhesives used by Globus Cork are water-based and eco-friendly.
Cork flooring is valued for its softness, thermal and sound insulation, water and mold resistance, asthma and allergy benefits and even termite resistance. Globus Cork’s tiles are valued for their beautiful colors and extensive design possibilities.
