Flooring expansion joints cork strips

Flooring expansion joints cork stripsConnecting different types of floors, e.g. carpets with laminated panels or wooden boards with tiles, you must ensure proper surface dilatation in the previously prepared expansion joints. The use of two different materials, one of which is a continuously working material (e.g. wood) requires an appropriate expansion gap, which cannot be too small or too large. The recommended width of the expansion joints is not less than 5mm and not more than 10mm. The cork expansion strips compensate for the "work" of the floor in places where there may be warping and deformation of the surface and the cork is used to fill it, as this material is not only nicely looking finish on the floor, but also plays a very important role - it absorbs all stresses related to floor work. The high elasticity of the natural cork means that it can be repeatedly compressed when the floor becomes wet and stretched when it is lost. Cork expansion strips. due to the best expansion properties, are the best choice for this type of application.

The strips made from our cork, are resistant to crushing, and what is important to our customers, it is a smooth raw material. During the assembly, elastic cork strips can be cut with a classic, sharp wallpaper knife. Cork is glued into the expansion joint in such a way that the side in contact with the ground is not permanently attached to it, allowing the cork to work freely. Therefore, apply the adhesive only to the side surfaces of the stopper. After pasting the cork expansion strip into the gap, it is worth covering the skirting with protective varnish for the natural cork or wood, in order to protect the material against contact with dirt and water. Do you need cork stripes with other dimensions? Check other sizes offered or send a request for battens with non-standard dimensions. Cork floor sealers can be cut with an ordinary wallpaper knife when installed. Cork expansion joint has to be placed in the dilatation gap in such a manner that the side that touches the surface is not bound with it. That is why the glue should be applied only to the sides of the cork. After gluing the dilatation in the gap it is good to finish it with cork or wood protective laminate to protect it from dirt and water.
