Inner cladding: ecological materials

The choice of inner cladding will of course depend on the taste of the inhabitants but may also take into account the impact on health and the environment. 

Floor covering materials

The cork

Cork is a resistant and durable inner cladding with a long life span.

It comes from the cork oaks found in Mediterranean climates such as Spain, Portugal and Morocco. The product is obtained by removing the outer later of the tree trunk. Harvesting cork does not damage the tree, as it has always been able to live for nearly 170 years after harvesting.

You can find more information on cork on the Amorim Isolamentos website.
