Product watch: Corium from Granorte

Made by Granorte in Portugal, Corium’s leather finish sits atop of a hybrid cork construction for a floor that not only looks and feels luxurious but that carries all the performance of nature’s wonder material…

Using cork to provide underfoot comfort, thermal insulation and acoustic absorption; Granorte has created a unique luxury floor with the capability to add something very special to interiors. The 100 per cent recycled genuine leather finish is availabe in a range of finishes – the the mock-croc of Veneto, grained Umbria and elegant Lombardia, are each offered in a palette of dark, sophisticated tones.

Granorte uses a 2mm thick piece of recycled leather for Corium and uses cork to enhance performance. A high-density fibreboard core lets Granorte use Uniclic joint for fast and easy glue-free installation. The cork integrated underlay has Microban technology to inhibit the growth of bacteria and the floor is available in two formats – a rectangular tile and plank.

“There’s something unmistakably luxurious about leather,” said Paulo Rocha, Granorte. “Corium captures this feeling beautifully in a floor that has modern performance. Bringing something extra special to homes or heightening a luxury aesthetic in boutique hotels and stores, the floor comes with a five-year commercial warranty for peace of mind.”

The leather surface of Corium is protected with Granorte’s AQUA2K+, a water-based performance coating that enhances wear resistance and makes maintenance easier. GREENGUARD Gold certified for low emissions, PVC-free, made from 80 per cent recycled materials and with no added formaldehyde; Corium is a luxury flooring option that comes with excellent environmental credentials.
