Granorte’s tradition cork floor tile collection

GRANORTE’s Tradition cork floor tile collection celebrates the unique aesthetic of nature’s renewable resource. If you could have a floor with a unique aesthetic that was natural, recycled, readily renewable and suitable for commercial use, why wouldn’t you choose it, asks the company?

The company continues: ‘Granorte’s Tradition cork tile is all of that, a floor suitable for commercial use with impeccable environmental credentials available in a wide range of unique looks. From the classic mid-century cork tile look of Standard to the colour and pattern rich Canyon and Twist, Tradition showcases the variety of natural cork.’

Paulo Rocha, product manager of Granorte, says: ‘Cork is a traditional material but it’s also an extremely relevant one for today’s commercial interiors. From a renewable natural resource and 100% post-industrial recycled, the cork we use possesses excellent environmental credentials. In Tradition it’s presented in one of its purest forms – a cork veneer on a high-density cork base – and the collection’s 36 options show just how versatile this natural form is as a design option.’

Granorte says it uses waste cork from wine stopper manufacturers to make its cork products. Based in Portugal, the company has been finding alternative uses for this material since 1973 and manufactures an extraordinary range of products from the natural material.
Each Tradition tile comes in a 600x300mm format for glue-down installation. Recommended for moderate commercial use, the floor is provided unfinished, so the appropriate lacquer can be applied.

Concludes Granorte: ‘Comfortable and with excellent thermal and acoustic insulation, cork has properties that are beneficial in creating a supportive environment for users.’
