Cali Bamboo. CaliCork flooring is a ready-to-lay product made from cork used in wineries. It features a proprietary ceramic wear-resistant technology that minimizes the appearance of scratches, scuffs, scoring, and rough spots. The material also helps insulate against temperature and noise and uses a no-glue click-lock system for easy, environmentally friendly installation. CaliCork is suitable for use on floors and walls. 888.788.2254. www.calibamboo.com.
DuoFast. The FloorMaster 250BN 16-gauge Hardwood Flooring Finish Nailer offers installers a more accurate approach to blind and face nailing for increased productivity. Features include a 45-degree detachable no-mar nailing guide and no-mar pads that protect the floor, wall, and cabinets and offer precise nail placement into the tongue when blind nailing. A proprietary depth-of-drive design helps eliminate tongue splitting, and a nail lock-out eliminates blank firing. Bump-fire action further increases productivity, and a 360-degree adjustable exhaust cap keeps exhaust out of the user’s face. 888.386.3278. www.duo-fast.com.
Elastilon. As a non-toxic, emission-free underlay membrane, Elastilon offers ergonomic, thermal, and acoustic properties in an easy peel-and-stick installation. Suitable for use under 5/16- to 1-inch-thick solid hardwood flooring, Elastilon can be installed directly on concrete either above or below grade, eliminating the need for subfloor construction, and reducing installation time by as much as 70%. Elastilon is eligible for LEED points as a low-emitting material. 877.526.9663. www.elastilonusa.com.

Available in five finishes including a clear natural coat, merlot, gunstock, vintage brown, and saddle, Classic Series planks measure ¾ inches thick and 2 ¼-, 3-, 4-, and 5-inch widths.

Torlys. Luxurious Plank Flooring crafted with recycled leather offers a unique alternative for flooring design. Made from jackets, upholstery, belts, shoes, and handbags diverted from landfills, the leather material is then applied to a high-density fiber smart core and backed with cork for comfort, warmth, and quietness. The cork backing eliminates the need for an underlayment in most installations, and the flooring does not require glue-down installation. Available in eight styles, Torlys Leather flooring carries a 25-year residential warranty, and is suitable for all areas of the home with the exception of bathrooms. 800.461.2573. www.torlys.com.
