Harris Luxury Vinyl Cork Floor uses a one-of-a-kind method to engineer the multiple layers used. These layers use the properties of natural cork to construct a great floor. With the best match of looks, comfort, and strength. This product is a unique LVC product that has a primary layer of cork, that gives the floor superior qualities in comfort, quiet and warmth.
The Harris luxury vinyl cork has a very real looking wood appearance with the benefits of both vinyl and cork in its planks. The “corktech” technology that Harris luxury vinyl flooring uses has a decorative and protective wear layer. It also has an underlay that allows for a solid and strong base, sandwiched between these is the core layer of cork. This cork core adds resilient cushioning for comfort, helps retain warmth, and helps absorb noise plus the cork is naturally water resistant. On top of that the Harris luxury vinyl cork is waterproof and is great for rooms like laundries and baths in your home.

The installation method for these cork floors is called Press Fit. Basically you take two planks and set them side by side. Then simply press down along the joint using a white rubber hammer. This is a floating installation. As the planks are pressed up against the other the cork will compress. Then they expand taking final shape and making that tight water proof seal.
Harris makes a number of styles in this collection and the one we have pictured is Amber Pine. All of the styles can be used in in-floor radiant heat installations.
Don’t forget that flooring that uses cork is the original environmentally sustainable flooring. Natural Cork’s bark harvesting process is performed by craftsmen every nine years with hand axes. They never harm the tree prolonging the tree’s life often for more than 200 years.
