Naturalness through and through

Living with cork: layer by layer to a comfortable dream floor

Quiet, springy footsteps, a warm feeling underfoot, a cosy atmosphere. Who conjured up this flooring so soft? It was the bark of the cork oak: find out more about the complex construction of HARO cork flooring.

The basis: high-quality and renewable

Before we show you the construction in detail, we would like to introduce you to the raw material of the floor: Do you know the slightly bobbing walking feeling when you walk over cork? This comes from the unique structure of the material: cork consists of many air cells. Imagine a piece of sugar cube. A piece of cork the same size contains about 60 million air cells. No wonder cork is easy on your joints and dampens sound.

The raw material has another special feature: it grows back. You don't have to cut down a single tree to produce cork. You only need the bark of the cork oak. About every nine years, the bark can be peeled by hand. You must not remove more than a third of the bark. After that, the tree regenerates itself.
A sustainable floor from nature. This is good for nature conservation and for our conscience!


Did you know?

A cork oak grows for 20 to 30 years before you can harvest its bark for the first time. A long process. But that's how it is with nature. Thanks to a lot of patience, tact and expertise, you get a valuable floor covering for a cosy home.

This is how cork is constructed

The positive properties of high-quality cork flooring are no coincidence. Gentle on joints, sound-absorbing, elastic, warm underfoot, comfortable: all this is anchored in the structure of the planks. The elaborate construction makes our HARO cork flooring durable, resistant and dimensionally stable.

Cork flooring is particularly versatile as a natural floor covering. The selection is large. But no matter which design and decor you choose: The structure is always the same. All variants of this natural product are suitable for use in kitchens, bedrooms, living rooms or children's rooms.

The advantages of the construction

In addition to the environmentally friendly, renewable natural materials, the construction of our cork floor offers further advantages:

  1. You get brand quality, Made in Germany, produced under strict European quality standards.
  2. The three layers of cork flooring, HDF core board and cork impact sound insulation are both dimensionally stable and elastic. An unbeatable combination that makes the floor soft underfoot and quiet. A dream for your feet and your ears.
  3. The construction guarantees good thermal conductivity: HARO Cork flooring is suitable for installation on underfloor heating systems. Thanks to the technical construction, the floor can store heat well and release it into the room in measured doses. You save on heating costs and can enjoy a pleasant room climate and cosy warmth, especially in the winter months.
  4. During installation, we have also thought about the comfort of laying the floor. The planks come with the Top Connect installation system. This allows for quick installation, which you can do yourself with a little manual skill.
  5. The natural material cork is antistatic and hardly lets dust or dirt get to it. The resistant permaDur seal protects the surface and makes the cork floor robust and easy to clean.


Do you have allergy sufferers in the family? Then cork is the ideal floor for you. The natural product is antistatic and hardly absorbs dust or dirt. The proven permaDur surface additionally supports this physical effect.
