CORK SOFT and CORK HARD: the best form of cork panels. Discover how effective soundproofing can be with ecological sound insulation.
CORK panels for soundproofing of dimensions 50x100 cm easily shaped in strips; usable as resilient profile for walls or layer alternative to the use of sound insulation panels. Natural VOC-free cork is perfect for structures where the goal is to minimise environmental impacts during construction. CORK is made of a natural cork agglomerate mechanically tested by the Industrial Research Centre of the University of Bologna.
The compactness of the cork panels makes them waterproof, so they can be used both on concrete and masonry for protection against rising damp and as a wall barrier. CORK is resistant to damp and to ageing including under load, and is available in two versions: CORK SOFT, with lower density and larger dimensions of the granulate; CORK HARD, with high density and smaller dimensions of the granulate.

Suitable for timber-to-timber installation to create a physical and mechanical separation between the two elements, thus avoiding the transmission of vibrations caused by impact sound. To increase the vibration absorption capacity, it is advisable to install the profile both below and above the timber floor. Install the profile on the upper section of the wall and fix it mechanically with staples every 40/60 cm. Then install the horizontal panel of the floor and repeat the operation.
