ECOLOGICAL PANEL FOR SOUNDPROOFING
CORK is a cork soundproofing panel that significantly reduces airborne and structure-borne noise transmission. Natural VOC-free cork is ideal for structures where the goal is to minimise environmental impacts during construction.
- It can be used as a wall profile or floor layer
- On concrete and masonry for capillary rise protection and as a wall barrier
The CORK soundproofing panel is available in 2 versions: CORK SOFT with lower density and larger dimension of the granulate and CORK HARD, with high density and smaller dimension of the granulate.
CORK SOFT and HARD can support different loads: from 20 to 75 kN/m for the SOFT; from 75 to 300 kN/m for the HARD.
Cork panels for soundproofing are easily shaped into strips, which can be used as a resilient wall profile or an alternative layer to the use of sound-insulating panels.
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 moisture and ageing even under load.

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.
