1. Sound absorption
With over 40 million natural ‘cushion cells’ per cubic centimetre, cork is a natural sound and thermal insulator. Most regular wall surfaces actually reflect sound, but cork’s cellular structure traps air, which creates an effective barrier to absorb sound.
2. Noise reduction
Cork naturally reduces noise transmission between rooms. In a space like a music studio, cork cladding helps prevent the recording activities from one booth impacting those in the adjoining spaces. The same benefits apply to dance studios, apartments and offices, where noise transmission can significantly impact the experience of the space.
3. Acoustic insulation
In addition to absorbing sound and reducing noise, cork also prevents disruption caused by vibrations or echoes associated with sounds emanating from adjoining spaces.
