Cork Flooring

Nova Basics Collection - FSC Certified

Colors:

Sustainable, hypoallergenic natural cork flooring

The Nova Basics Collection is composed of two colors: dappled Mono Massive and unadorned Fantasie. Simple and straightforward, these shades of the Nova Basics Collection integrate effortlessly with any style.

Cork is made of the soft, spongy — yet highly durable — tissue found in the bark of the cork oak tree, a species native to the Western Mediterranean region. With an average life span of 150-200+ years, bark is stripped from the trunks of these trees every nine to 10 years. The resulting planks are then sorted and stacked in the forest for six months. This exposure to the air, sun, rain and wind triggers chemical reactions that improve the cork's quality.

The structure of cork allows it to be both compressive and elastic. Because of this, cork floors are extremely durable and act as excellent sound and thermal insulators; they will dent or warp when subjected to pressure, but will return to form due to cork's inherent superior 'memory'. Cork floors are often used in churches, libraries and museums where sound control is desired.

Because cork floors are anti-static and hypoallergenic, they resist the build-up of dust and dirt. This simplifies the maintenance and cleaning process and decreases the harmful effects of dust for people who suffer from asthma or other respiratory diseases. The presence of suberin, a waxy substance found in cork, makes these floors impermeable to liquids and gas alike, decreasing the risk of mold growth. Additionally, cork is a natural fire inhibitor and will not spread flame.

All Nova Distinctive Floor products meet the highest industry standards, are completely non-toxic and safe for everyone, even those with chemical sensitivities*.

Why we like it

Nova's products are made in Switzerland and carry the precedent of exceptional manufacturing quality, as well as the highest standards of environmental safety. In addition, the styles are beautiful, unique and highly consistent. These products perform as good or better than any cork on the market and are completely safe with no added urea formaldehyde.

Nova Distinctive Floors is the only company that uses FSC certified fiberboard cores inside its planks. We've never had any problems over the last six years.
