The problem in many playgrounds for children is that they break easily after daily use and external exposure. The swings, the nets, the slides and all the furniture need special attention and maintenance. When leaving school, they are usually one of the destinations most requested by children, so it is important to pay special attention to them.

The rubbers on the floors, after the game and the races of the little ones, tear, spoil and can even cause accidents. Many public administrations, concerned about the well-being of the little ones, have tried various options. Artificial grass, rubber carpeting, pressed concrete, polystyrene carpet, among other non-ecological options. However, it seemed that something safe and lasting had not just been found.

The contribution of cork in these recreational sites has already been tried and tested with very good results. The basic advantage lies in its sustainability, its resistance and its relatively soft touch. Your answer consists of an ISO approved concrete mix mixed with granulated cork specially treated for this case and mixed with a 125-160 density resin.

In addition, once the product is installed, a very good visual reaction is achieved. Being able to finish it in several colors, it adapts perfectly to the requested optical result. When playing on this surface, it offers a reaction to the touch like a kind of carpet. Also, it is very hard against jumps and inclement weather.

Every year, cities and towns reform and inaugurate new playgrounds. As in the city of Mérida, which at the end of this year, will have eight new recreational spaces for the little ones.

The bark of the cork oak, which is a natural and ecological material, protects children against possible external infections. In this new course, going back to school with a cork is already a reality.

Until recently, when you wanted to insulate a wall to protect yourself from noise and the weather, the question was whether to choose cork or another material. The lack of variety in colors and finishes made the choice very easy, focusing on the natural color of the cork. Therefore, if you wanted a visual finish of a different tone, you had to paint over it. This additional painting added cost and time.

Now, you have the solution for finishes with different pigments, saving you the paint coat phase. You can opt for cork plates with unique, enveloping, different and above all colorful designs.

These designs, far from the traditional natural color, offer you a very practical concept. Cork sheets combine the advantage of insulation and the plus of beauty in the finish. You will be able to choose between different color options, so it is up to you to present your customers with the different color options.

The soccer players are very grateful to the new signing called cork, with which the current grass is being replaced with this ecological material. The properties of absorption, use and avoid using toxic materials such as rubber please them.

Wembley Stadium is known to be one of the most modern football stadiums today. Its lawn is considered one of the best in Europe. The Champions League and first division matches are becoming more and more popular. Day by day, the king of sports moves a lot of money and that is why until now we have focused on the grass but not on what is under it.

Our granulate, offers you qualities approved by the UEFA so that this ecological and healthy material obtains good results and zero infections for the players. Likewise, it is a material that offers the grass greater consistency and durability. It does not emit any toxic emissions in case of rain.

An ecological option that is contemplated when incorporating it into soccer fields was the olive stone. These, as an alternative to other synthetic materials. However, the choice of olive stone does not present the same absorption in the tread than cork. Being the result of the first firm and hard, the second, on the other hand, cushions the player’s stride. Another key point, a lower percentage of muscle injuries is achieved and a better game minute by minute, even on penalties.

In addition to football, there are other sports that are already set in this material, such as tennis courts. (more info).

The advantages of granulated cork are, among others, the reduction of slips, thermal capacity and durability in matches without having problems of falls. But it is still soccer and sports with grass fields where its use is greater. In the USA and on its American football, baseball and other fields, new granulated cork floors are being installed.

In sports, we have seen that this natural material is also an outlet and is increasingly valued. Evidently, the ecology provided by this material is also important for health and for the proper use of sport in its facilities, providing its “cork” grain for its good enjoyment.

How is reverberation heard through cork?

Reverberation is a word that is increasingly present in the architecture and interior design sector. Do you know if it affects classrooms and conference rooms? How is reverberation heard through cork?

We know acoustic reverberation as the acoustic phenomenon of reflection that occurs in a room. This situation is a reality when a wave front hits walls, ceiling and floor directly. It is being solved with the appearance of materials, such as cork, with which to control this reverberation.

Cork helps absorb and dissipate sounds. It is an ideal material to reduce the interruptions of sounds colliding with each other. Thus, to be able to improve the acoustics in small or large rooms. Thanks to cork, a natural material, you will be able to reduce the disposition of the sound. You can control the reverberation thus making a quieter environment.

corcho extremadura

Remember that reverberation is a sound phenomenon produced by reflection. It consists of a slight permanence of the sound once the original source has stopped emitting it. Did you know that the parameter that allows its degree to be quantified is called Reverberation Time (RT)?

(RT) is the time required for the sound in a room to decay over a specific dynamic range, usually taken to be 60 dB, when a source is suddenly interrupted. The Sabine formula relates the RT to the properties of the room.

This is the reason why we want to highlight THERMICORK as an acoustic insulator. Do you want the best natural solution for reflected sounds?

Can cork protect us against fires?

We are already in the middle of high temperature season. For too long we have been warning of the danger of a fire when it catches us unprotected. The fire will be the cause of both personal and material misfortunes. Can cork protects us against fires?

The result of the fires during the summer seasons brings us, too many times, undesired endings. When the fire destroys several hectares, you already know that the affected areas will take many years to repopulate. As a result, flora or fauna, both will be blurred.

Similarly, the towns and houses adjacent to the forests are perfect targets for the fires that burn half of Spain every year. Thus, a fire can burn instantly or gradually. Maybe we should start protecting ourselves against an upcoming flame.

You can already imagine that from the National Aeronautics Administration (NASA), when they plan a project they calculate all the possible consequences. Before them, positive or negative, they prepare all the answers with the best operational materials. NASA, we know it as the US government agency responsible for the civil space program, as well as aerospace and aeronautics research. For this reason, it continues to be one of the most outstanding references to compare and achieve success.

Why not use a natural product that can serve as a firewall if you have it within your reach and thus plan your protection plan? Why not trust in the investigation of the environment and the defense of the characteristics of the best products?

THERMICORK is the black expanded cork agglomerate. In other words, it stands out for being a highly efficient material in isolating the transmission of vibrations due to its elasticity.
