Bamboo & Cork Flooring Combined: Corboo
Bamboo flooring is beautiful, durable, and sustainable. Cork flooring is stylish, provides excellent thermal and acoustic insulation, and it’s also extremely eco-friendly. So what do you have when you combine the two? Corboo, the aptly named new hybrid flooring material from US Floors.
The manufacturer describes Corboo as bamboo flooring with seams of cork infused into the woven bamboo strands. The result is a floor surface that’s both quiet and durable: cork’s resilience makes it an excellent sound insulator, while the mature Moso bamboo (sourced from managed forests) is extremely dense and dimensionally stable.
Corboo is available in four different “weave” structures, and 36 different color choices. Custom colors can be produced too, and US Floors offers either a UV-cured hard finish or a natural oil finish. Corboo also has extremely low formaldehyde content, and complies with California Air Resources Board (CARB) and European E0 standards.
Going for LEED certification? Corboo can earn credits in the “Rapidly Renewable Materials” (MR 6.0) and “Low Emitting Materials” (EQ 4.4) categories. Learn more about Corboo at the US Floors website.
