feature: low thermal conductivity of cork
The low thermal conductivity of cork, combined with its ability to store heat and release it slowly, makes it a very efficient thermal insulator, capable of preventing overheating in summer and maintaining a pleasant temperature in the cold winter months.
Excellent Thermal Insulation
The air inside the cells makes it an excellent insulator, leading to very low thermal conductivity, over a wide range of temperatures.
Cork's low thermal and electrical conductivity ensures that you can handle the lamp's shell in perfect safety.
Thermal insulation is part of Alucork's multi-functionality and is provided by it’s Core, NL20’s low thermal conductivity - 0,045 W/m2ºC - and long term durability assures an efficient thermal insulation throughout the product life guaranteeing passenger comfort and reducing operational costs with acclimatization.
ACM30 structure has a low thermal conductivity of 0,065 W/mºK throughout a wide temperature range, resulting in energy savings and reduced condensation. This attribute contributes to passenger comfort like no other primary decking material.
What is cork made of?
Cork consists of suberin cells in the shape of tiny pentagonal or hexagonal honeycombs, a complex fatty acid and filled with an air-like gas, which makes up 90% of its volume. It possesses an average density of around 200 kg/m3 and low thermal conductivity.
Given its unique cellular structure, cork has a high shock-absorption capacity and thermal conductivity. These characteristics, together with a natural texture and appearance, make cork infills a non-aggressive solution for players, guaranteeing system performance and reducing wear and tear.
The solution guarantees good safety conditions: the flooring’s frictional force prevents users from slipping and the product’s elasticity helps protect knees when walking and increases safety by alleviating impacts from falls. Since it has low thermal conductivity, the solution reduces the phenomenon of creating urba…
The scope of the summary characterisation is intended to highlight the performance in terms of safety, comfort and durability of Alucork® panels. The basis of the characterisation is a 20mm Alucork® panel and the typical requirements of end users, such as the national and international rules governing the passenger ra…
