CorkDecor™ Floors - Select Line Floor Collection - Floating Floors - Jelinek Cork Mosaic Floors - Safety Floors of Cork & Rubber

Jelinek Cork Group has been supplying cork flooring throughout the world for many decades. Today the company remains the oldest existing supplier of cork floors and other related cork products. With the many years of experience in the cork flooring business and through innovative research in design, technology, and production Jelinek cork flooring continues to be recognized for excellent quality, innovation, uniqueness and choice. Many Jelinek cork flooring installations made in the mid 1950’s are still in excellent condition today.

In keeping environmental and natural products in the forefront, Jelinek Cork Group was one of the founders of an innovative wine cork collection & recycling initiative. Hundreds of thousands of used wine corks are collected each year. Jelinek recycles these corks and uses them (among other products) in the production of some of the cork flooring, described below.

There are numerous reasons which make Jelinek cork flooring the ideal floor covering whether for residential, commercial, or industrial purposes:

environmentally friendly natural flooring
produced from renewable resource
soft & warm
underfoot comfort
prolonged standing is fatigue free
helps reduce aching of hips, knees, feet, and back
excellent insulator
water resistant
does not entrap dirt or fungi
excellent indentation recovery
easy to maintain
wide selection of patterns, colors, and designs
long life with little care
easy installation
sound absorbing and insulating
Besides being decorative and functional, Jelinek cork flooring over most other floor coverings provides the added benefits of insulating against temperature, airborne sound, and pounding noise.  Imagine the perfect floor...fashionable and beautiful to look at, yet easy to care for...quiet, soft and warm to the touch, yet durable enough to handle all kinds of traffic - pets, children, high heels.

Cork, as a natural product, warms and enriches any interior.  Cork flooring always blends in well with other decors and furniture and is available in a wide range of colors.

Jelinek cork coverings are of the finest quality resulting from strictly supervised production and on-going quality control procedures. Additionally, production of Jelinek cork flooring is environmentally friendly. No cork trees are cut down, only the bark is peeled without destroying the tree, and it grows back within nine years, ready to be harvested again.

Whether in a child's room, family room, music room, kitchen, or bathroom - a cork floor is always the correct choice. It is tough, resilient and water resistant. It absorbs sound and provides acoustical excellence. Being highly abrasion resistant, these floors are often also used in public buildings including schools, hospitals, gyms and workout rooms, yoga and exercise centers, restaurants, hotels, shops and offices.
