Cork Flooring: due to the increasing interest in using natural, renewable building products, cork is an accepted commercial flooring alternative. Cork flooring, is well suited for high traffic,
commercial installations. It provides a resilient flooring surface with unparalleled durability, easy maintenance and environmental sensitivity. Many installations installed in the 1920s and 1930s are still in use and looking beautiful today, decades after they were initially installed.
The key to the durability of cork is its resilience. Because cork is resilient, it is resistant
to excessive wear caused by foot traffic, since the material has the ability to "give" before damage occurs. Expanko further enhances their cork flooring with the application of a matte polyurethane finish. This finish holds up exceptionally well even in heavily used installations. Over time, the low level of maintenance required on a cork floor also becomes a substantial savings in cost.
FritzTile has low emissions, does not burn, lasts for the life of the project, contributes positively to a safe working environment and is a natural complement to the expansive offering of green products by Expanko.
All the benefits of using FritzTile blend with the basic business practices of Expanko—
products thaa must provide a benefit to the living and working environment.
