Acousticork wall bearing increases the lifetime of buildings, decreasing crack appearance due to the decoupling of elements.

The supports formed by cork granulated with recycled materials, are used to decouple the connections of the masonry with the building’s structure. It has been developed to effectively interrupt the transmission of footstep noise vertically through the masonry. If wall bearings are used consistently throughout a buildin…
