Coarse grained cork sheets are excellent for sound and thermal insulation. A coarse cork panel has a higher density in comparison with medium grained or fine grained cork sheets. It is an acoustic isolation and eliminates all the sounds coming from the other side when fixed on the wall or ceiling. It is worth to consider a light construction of 15-20mm cork insulation panel, mineral wool or air gap and closing plasterboard or OSB panel if the wall is thin and the noise is of great inconvenience. The placement of the 10mm wall cork insulation panel will be sufficient for reducing the noise in the majority of cases.
Looking for more 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. To achieve privacy in one’s own home, a panel 5 to 7mm thick will be sufficient. It is recommended not to finish the cork panel after the fixture as its irregular structure will disperse sounds more effectively and eliminate any echoes, increasing our comfort. We are aware that the agglomerated cork may not be appealing to everyone so 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 mean? It means much more warmth in the apartment and no more high gas bills. Even 3-5mm coarse cork insulation panel is enough to make even the coldest walls warm to the touch. But the 7-10mm cork board insulation sheets will provide enough insulation and will keep the warm air inside and guarantee a comfortable and cosy living space.
