  • ("Floating" Floors) Floating floors look like hardwood but are sheets bound together with a thin layer of foam attached to the under-side to serve as a cushion.  The surface flexes when stepped on.
  • A Floating Floor is a floor that does not need to be nailed or glued to the subfloor. The term floating floor refers to the installation method, but is often used synonymously with laminate flooring in a domestic context.
  • not nailed or glued down, but usually interlocking.

  • phellem: (botany) outer tissue of bark; a protective layer of dead cells
  • The buoyant, light brown substance obtained from the outer layer of the bark of the cork oak
  • A piece of cork used as a float for a fishing line or net
  • outer bark of the cork oak; used for stoppers for bottles etc.
  • close a bottle with a cork
  • A bottle stopper, esp. one made of cork

What makes EZ Cork flooring different from the rest? The HIGH RESISTANCE FINSH, unique to EZ Cork! The abrasion resistant surface is considered one of the most revolutionary new developments in the flooring market. This significantly reduces the appearance of scratches, scuff marks, scoring and rough spots on valuable cork floors. Ez_Cork cork flooring has a high resistance finish giving each piece a soft and natural quality and not the usual slippery and cold characteristics of regular varnishes. High Resistance Finish is based on a ceramic solution and does not contain any harmful substances. As a result of the high resistance finish, your ez_cork flooring will last for a long period of time.

Cork material is a prime-subset of generic cork tissue, harvested for commercial use primarily from the Cork Oak tree, Quercus suber, with Portugal producing 50% of cork worldwide.[1] Cork consists mostly of suberin. Cork's elasticity combined with its near-impermeability makes it suitable as a material for bottle stoppers, especially for wine bottles. Cork stoppers represent about 60% of all cork based production. Cork's low density makes it a suitable material for fishing floats and buoys, as well as handles for fishing rods (as an alternative to neoprene). Cork is used in musical instruments, particularly woodwind instruments, where it is used to fasten together segments of the instrument, making the seams airtight. Sheets of cork, often the by-product of more lucrative stopper production, are used to make floor tiles and bulletin boards. Granules of cork can also be mixed into concrete. The composites made by mixing cork granules and cement have low thermal conductivity, low density and good energy absorption. Some of the property ranges of the composites are density (400–1500 kg/m?), compressive strength (1–26 MPa) and flexural strength (0.5–4.0 MPa).[2] The cork industry is generally regarded as environmentally friendly. The sustainability of production and the easy recycling of cork products and by-products are two of its most distinctive aspects. However, only one leading company, Oeneo Bouchage of France has conducted and released its complete carbon footprint study, the first in the industry. Cork demand has increased due to more wine being sealed with cork rather than being sold in bulk. Since a tree's bark can only be harvested six to nine years hence, supply is highly inelastic. Top quality corks are expensive, and no matter what the cost, have the risk of containing TCA Cork taint and are susceptible to random oxidation due to their mechanical variability. Many cheaper brands have switched to lower quality cork, synthetic plastic stoppers, screwcaps, or other closures. Because synthetic stoppers do not dry out and shrink, wine bottles with synthetic corks do not have to be stored on their sides to prevent oxidizing. Cork contamination with harmless but foul-smelling trichloroanisole (TCA) is one of the primary causes of cork taint in wine. As late as the mid 1600s, French vintners did not use cork stoppers, using oil-soaked rags stuffed into the necks of bottles instead.[3] Cork has been used in rocket technology due to its fire resistance. Cork can be used as bricks for the outer walls of houses, as in Portugal's pavilion at Expo 2000. On November 28, 2007, the Portuguese national postal service CTT issued the world's first postage stamp made of cork.[4][5] The Cork Oak is unrelated to the "cork trees" (Phellodendron), which have corky bark but are not used for cork production. Cork was used by Robert Hooke as he discovered and named the cell. Description courtesy of Wikipedia. Photographer: Kevin Gjerstad

Well, flickr uploaded all of these pics of the installation of the floating cork floor in the attic rooms--in some random order. But at least the first photo's of the first room. Jacob came over (he had motivation, he's going to put some kind of floating floor in the Airstream so this was his chance to preview the installation process), and did a lot of these first two short rows of planks across the floor. I provided my weight on the plank he was hammering the next one into, and did a few. Jacob also pulled out that baseboard in the corner there, and showed me how not to saw planks to fit into the end of the row! And he shuttled me to the home store so I could get a carpenter's square and some other stuff I needed. Then he ducked out before Row 3, where tricksy cutting was going to need to be done to fit the flooring around a wall-cabinet opening. Actually there's nothing like having someone else who's handy when you're starting something new. He figured a lot of it out (I figured out more later), and I got in the groove. Just many hundreds square feet left to go! And ever so much cork sawdust.
