Cork-based underlays: the balance between performance and comfort

Installing an underlay plays a critical role in improving the comfort and efficiency of buildings. Cork-based products are an excellent option for underlays.

Sustainable materials for all types of flooring

Cork is the common denominator used in all our underlays. When applied beneath a flooring system, a cork-based underlay provides greater comfort, protection and longevity to the final floor, ensuring greater energy efficiency and better acoustic and thermal insulation.

Applied between the subfloor and final floor, the underlay provides a decisive contribution to the overall performance of the flooring system, in terms of durability, thermal comfort, acoustic insulation, and energy efficiency.

Although selection of the specific type of underlay can vary in function of the floor chosen and the room’s type of use, application of an underlay is always recommended. Whether used for a wooden floor, ceramic floor, laminate flooring or resilient flooring (LVT), an underlay not only ensures correct application of the flooring it also significantly increases its working life. In addition to delivering higher performance, the underlay will assure greater user comfort.

 

Primary benefits of a cork-based underlay

Soundproofing

The ability of an underlay to improve a building’s acoustic performance is one of its most valued aspects. Due to their sound-absorbing properties, cork-based materials help reduce day-to-day noise, including airborne and impact noises.
