Looking for a unique facade?

View our MD Cork Facade product, a new and truly innovative cladding that architects and designers are jumping on the opportunity to use.

A 100% environmentally friendly choice. Cork is harvested from the tree every nine years resulting in a sustainable resource that can be used again and again. Our tiles are produced by cooking the cork slowly, releasing natural resins that bind the material with itself.

We manage 3 different colors: Light, Medium & Dark respectively:

Cork Your home should be a space of internal balance, a place of pleasant re-discovery after a challenging day’s work. Cork’s natural properties make it an excellent sound insulator, attenuating the sounds that disturb moments of relaxation and family sharing.

Light
600 x 300 x 8.0mm

Medium
600 x 300 x 8.0mm

Dark
600 x 300 x 4.8mm (pre-finished) / 8.0mm

We recommend that this product be finished on site using either the LOBA, BONA, or OSMO’s Hardwax Oil.

MD Cork Facade

Cork cladding is an exciting new product that innovative architects are quickly taking advantage of. Easily manipulated and highly sustainable, the product can be used for both internal and exterior applications and has a range of attributes that make it a highly desirable material.

Sustainable

The harvesting process for Cork does not harm the tree, and can be repeated every nine years – the result is an increase in the storage of CO2.

Unique

With a number of designs and an incredibly distinctive colour and texture, a cork facade is a truly unique and new product that is waiting for innovative designers to be creative with.

Insulative

Cork has excellent thermal and acoustic insulative properties that make it a great material to use in both internal and external applications.

Recyclable

Unlike many other building materials, MD cork facade is hardy enough to be recycled in both its final form and also into other cork products.

Centro de Idiomas

EAFIT University’s recently finished Languages Building in Medellin, Columbia has used a cork facade in stunning fashion. Architect Juan Manuel Peláez uses a natural and abundant material as reference to the distinct character of northern South America. In a time when economies, cultures and architecture are becoming more and more globalised – material interventions like this allow for the student community to have a local reference in an international learning environment.
