Floor Underlayment

Cork Underlayment

These are the number one choice when it comes to sound control in flooring underlayment. Cork underlayment is generally needed because buildings have in their bylaws a stipulation that requires the homeowner or contractor to use a specific type of sound control underlayment before installing hard surfaces such as Hardwood flooring. 

The Cork Underlayment Sheets contain millions of air-filled pockets per cubic inch. These air pockets compress under pressure, regaining their shape once pressure is removed thereby creating a gentle cushiony surface flooring material. There are over 100,000,000 air cells per cubic inch in the Cork Underlayment, which act as a sort of shock absorber and sound muffler.With cork underlayment you are literally walking on air! These characteristics are also the reason behind cork’s success as an acoustic insulation.
