Coarse grained cork sheets can be a great mean for thermal and sound insulation. A coarse cork panel has a higher density in comparison with medium grained or fine grained cork sheets. Fixed on the wall or ceiling is an acoustic isolation and eliminates all the sounds coming from the other side. If the wall is thin and the noise is of great inconvenience, it is worth to consider a light construction of 15-20mm cork insulation panel, air gap or mineral wool and closing plasterboard or OSB panel. In the majority of cases the placement of the 10mm wall cork insulation panel will be sufficient for reducing the noise.
Looking for a bit of privacy?
If the issue at hand is more serious than just a loud TV then a coarse grained cork insulation panel is an answer to the problem. A panel 5 to 7mm thick will be enough to achieve privacy in one’s own home. It is worth not finishing the cork panel after the fixture as its irregular structure will disperse sounds more effectively and eliminate any echoes, increasing our comfort. As the technical cork may not be appealing to everyone, we offer a wide range of decorative cork.
Freezing outside and the walls are ice cold?
40 million cells full of air in every cubic centimetre gives thermal conductivity of 0.037 W/mK. What does this means? It means no more high gas bills and much more warmth in the apartment. Just 3-5mm coarse cork insulation panel is enough to make even the coldest walls warm to the touch. But the 7-10mm cork insulation sheets will provide enough insulation and will keep the warm air inside to turn it into a comfortable and cosy living space.
