The champion of versatility

The modern floor solutions of agglomerated cork with recycled rubber are increasingly the option of professional sports venues. Gymnasiums, sports centres and stadiums in various continents are fans of these solutions by Corticeira Amorim, which effectively meet the requirements in terms of elasticity, resilience and durability for this type of venues. Based on these attributes and the credibility of the brand, the Amorim Sports Floor range was recently chosen as the official world floor covering for the Reebok CrossFit chain of gyms, and has been installed in over ten countries where the new Reebok sports model is being implemented.

"Cork floors cushion the physical impact of the activity, being ideal for running tracks, fitness and aerobic floors."

The natural characteristics of cork, associated with rubber, provide greater resistance, comfort and safety while practising sports or leisure activities. Applied as final flooring, floors with cork cushion the physical impact of the activity, being ideal for running tracks, fitness and aerobic floors, for example. They also provide an excellent performance in ice rinks and under intensive use of heavy loads, thus they are also appropriate for bodybuilding gyms. The wide range available offers the choice of various application solutions and a diversified range of patterns and design options, according to the decorative needs of each client.

Number one in sports practice

Internationally renowned water sports equipment, such as Diverse Surf or Mistral, use cork because it is a lightweight, waterproof, resistant and comfortable product. It comprises the coating of surf, stand up paddle and windsurfing boards. Usually applied as a structural foam coating, it provides this equipment greater resistance to impact, greater thermal stability, resilience and lightness. The results are plain to see: Kayaks containing cork have already contributed to winning Olympic medals and surfboards, which have been surfing the waves from the USA to Australia, have also played an important role in achieving the excellent results of athletes such as Jason Blewitt, the Australian three-time Longboard champion.

The versatility of cork reaches a variety of different sports. It began by being applied to badminton shuttlecocks and soon became a professional in hockey, cricket and baseball balls, table tennis rackets, golf clubs, darts and even referee's whistles. A track record of world achievements.
