SILENT CORK UNDERLAY

NATURAL ACOUSTIC SILENT CORK UNDERLAYMENT

Silent cork underlays are made out of natural cork – an excellent raw material suitable to be installed under almost any floor covering with significant improvement at thermic and acoustic levels. When compared to synthetic materials, cork becomes the right choice when looking for a solution that guarantees a viable performance but also the welfare of future generations. Acoustic silent cork underlay provides more comfort, protection and longevity to the final floor.

Opus cork underlay eco features:

For thousands of years, cork has been protecting, inspiring and dazzling the human being. Opus acoustic silent cork underlays are outstanding ecological materials, able to retain CO2 to a considerable level. Not a single tree is cut or damaged during the harvesting. Opus silent cork underlays are produced from 100% pure natural cork materials, from corks trees that are never cut down, meaning the cork trees will remain a carbon sink for their lifetime. This contributes for a negative carbon footprint, reducing global warming and improving the general sustainability of our planet. Opus is fully aware of the importance of protecting our environment, Opus cork underlay is one of the most sensible and ecological choice.
 

Opus cork underlay features:

Characteristics
Chemical inert, moisture resistance and biodegradable.

Properties
Opus acoustic silent cork underlay most distinguished and useful properties are: low density, resiliency, impermeability, insulating and fire retardant properties, low conductivity, high resistance to wear and tear, warm and soft touch and anti-static.

Opus cork underlay features:

Air quality
Cork, the outer bark of the cork tree, QUERCUS SUBER L, is a vegetable fabric formed by millions of micro-cells, which are filled with a gaseous mixture identical to air.

Renewable 
The only natural renewable underlayment.

Opus cork underlay features:

Flexibility
This cell-like structure, similar to a honeycomb, gives Opus cork great elasticity and, as incredible as it may seem, cork can be compressed to half of its size without losing its flexibility.

Stable 
The cushion-like cells have a truly elastic memory. When compressed, they instantly try to return to their original shape. This elasticity gives cork a high level of tolerance to climate changes.

Opus cork underlay strength:

  • Easy to install
  • Improve acoustic and thermal comfort
  • Maximize the service life of joining system
