Seacork’s natural sponginess provides an unsurpassable comfort when walking barefoot on a swimming pool
surround or at a spa.
And cork provides further comfort because it does not retain heat. Even in the brightest sunlight you cannot
burn your feet.
Cork’s provides a higher level of anti-slip safety than any other material, natural or artificial, known today.
Still, to maintain all its natural qualities, cork has to be properly kept up. (See UPKEEP.)
HOW IT LOOKS
Seacork’s natural look is real. It will display, permanently, Seacork’s impeccable ecological credentials. There
is nothing comparable in today’s market.
WEAR and TEAR
Seacork is extremely durable if you care for it properly. Some of our customers have had it on the decks of
their boats for up to 18 years and it still looks and feels as it did when new.
Cork discolours in sunlight and take on a sandy tint. This is only superficial. You can restore the original
colour with sanding every few years.
VALUE FOR MONEY
The major saving comes from the laying down.
That said, safety is surely a much more important factor than money, especially for a swimming pool
surround. Just think of how much one fall on a hard surface can cost.
We can supply Seacork in pre-cut and pre-caulked sheets, ready to lay down in DIY mode. If you are not
especially handy, we suggest having the job done by a local artisan.
Use a stiff brush and any of the everyday cleaning products sold in supermarkets for use on floors Our
advice: dilute the cleaning product with water in a pail and brush on a on a dry cork surface. Wait a few
minutes before repeating this operation. Then rinse well to remove all traces of the cleaning product. Heavy
concentrations of cleaning products are unnecessary and can make thorough rinsing much more difficlut.
Beware of saturates. We have learned from our customers that excessive use of saturates creates a
protective film that neutralises Seacork’s anti-slip properties. Beware also of oils sold for teak which can
have the same undesirable consequences.
