WISE by Amorim is a Climate Positive, PVC-Free product. Not many flooring companies protect and preserve the environment while producing flooring products, but Amorim does just that. With a carbon negative footprint, WISE is based on cork, a 100% sustainable material. 

Amorim has reached a remarkable CO2 negative footprint throughout its manufacturing processes. This starts in the cork oak forest where cork is harvested without harming a single tree. Once extracted, the bark regenerates in preparation for the next harvesting (approximately every 9 years).  And harvesting cork bark actually assists with reducing greenhouse emissions because a stripped cork oak tree absorbs, on average, 5 times more carbon dioxide than non-harvested trees.

A harvested cork oak tree absorbs 5 times more carbon dioxide.

And that's just the beginning.  Amorim's industrial process is also environmentally-friendly. While the harvesting of most forest products requires heavy machinery, the stripping of the cork bark is done manually by highly skilled workers who prevent damage to the tree during the process.  The transport of the raw cork material is made in trucks to factories and warehouses that are located within a few miles to the forests.

Cork produces 4 times less carbon emissions versus standard wood floor production.

The resulting cork flooring solutions are sustainable to be sure. But they are also certified safe. All Amorim products have several Indoor Air Quality certificates, ensuring that no harmful particles are present in their flooring.  In short, the WISE by Amorim line of cork flooring is sustainable and healthy for you and our planet and we're thrilled to be able to offer them here at Greenhome!

Amorim waterproof cork flooring. Yes or no?

The system 'looks' good on first inspection. The rigid core (non-PVC) sounds awesome, until you realize how thin these planks are. They are 7mm thick (0.28 inches). That's roughly 1/4". That is thin by cork floating floor standards.

That in itself isn't too much to worry about because there are vinyl planks that are 7mm thick and they are considered 'thick' by most people. So the total thickness isn't too much of a worry - if you were purchasing vinyl. You are not purchasing vinyl. You are paying for cork. The WISE product doesn't have much of it.

My second concern is the bevelled edge. Traditionally a cork bevelled edge is more susceptible to damage because of it's shape. This *might be negated by the HRT or the SRT coating.

In your situation, I would recommend the SRT coating. It is the TOUGHEST of the tough in the flooring world. It does everything you want and more. It does NOT need refinishing. It will take the abuse for years and years and years.

The plus for this product is the finish. The HRT is the 'good' finish. The SRT is the "Best" finish. The SRT will reduce fading and will accept a HUGE amount of abuse.

If you want 'cork' then work with a cork glue down tile in bathrooms. It is a bit more money for installation, but it is a permanent floor. For the square foot price of WISE, you can have an 8mm thick cork tile (100% cork) glued down in the bathroom.

Bathrooms rarely get enough sunlight to change the colour. Fading in a room such as a bathroom is not something I would worry about. If the 100% glue down cork interests you then check out my colleague's website:

Look under 'cork tiles'. You should see some magnificently cork tiles (6mm or 8mm) for the same price/square foot as the WISE.


Reinventing how cork engages the world of flooring.

At Amorim Cork Composites, we use cork as the basic raw material and as the differentiating factor in the production of both composites and materials to be used in the production of each of the several layers that make up a flooring system (top layer, inlay, core layer and pre-attached underlayment), and of accessories for laying laminated flooring (underlayment).

For any of these applications, we develop and design products that are adjusted to the customer's needs and requirements, be they flooring manufacturers, with specific needs regarding material compatibility with their own production processes, or accessory distributors and retailers.

Why Cork?

How to Maintain Your Cork Flooring

Amorim floors are easy to maintain. You only need a mild, pH-neutral cleaner and a vacuum cleaner (or even a broom handle with a cloth on the end will do the trick).  For general spills, you can use a damp mop. For deep cleaning, use a mild pH neutral cleaner. Download the maintenance instructions here.

How to Repair Your WISE 2G Floating Floor

You have a couple of options here. You can repair the floor by removing only the damaged plank or you can choose to uninstall all the planks until you reach the damaged one. Download the instructions for both options here.
