In keeping environmental and natural products in the forefront, Jelinek Cork Group was one of the founders of an innovative wine cork collection & recycling initiative. Hundreds of thousands of used wine corks are collected each year. Jelinek recycles these corks and uses them (among other products) in the production of some of the cork flooring, described below.
There are numerous reasons which make Jelinek cork flooring the ideal floor covering whether for residential, commercial, or industrial purposes:

Besides being decorative and functional, Jelinek cork flooring over most other floor coverings provides the added benefits of insulating against temperature, airborne sound, and pounding noise. Imagine the perfect floor…fashionable and beautiful to look at, yet easy to care for…quiet, soft and warm to the touch, yet durable enough to handle all kinds of traffic – pets, children, high heels.
Cork, as a natural product, warms and enriches any interior. Cork flooring always blends in well with other decors and furniture and is available in a wide range of colors.
Jelinek Cork floor coverings are of the finest quality resulting from strictly supervised production and on-going quality control procedures. Additionally, production of Jelinek cork flooring is environmentally friendly. No cork trees are cut down, only the bark is peeled without destroying the tree, and it grows back within nine years, ready to be harvested again.
Whether in a child’s room, family room, music room, kitchen, or bathroom – a cork floor is always the correct choice. It is tough, resilient and water resistant. It absorbs sound and provides acoustical excellence. Being highly abrasion resistant, these floors are often also used in public buildings including schools, hospitals, gyms and workout rooms, yoga and exercise centers, restaurants, hotels, shops and offices.
