Instead, laminated flooring is a type of floor made of wood or materials that imitate wood. Its placement goes on top of the existing floor, so the floor is not removed, which is why it is called «floating» flooring. As a result, its installation is faster and easier.
In clonclusion, cork fabric for parquet or floating flooring is a product that is increasingly used for renovations and insulation. Its great success comes from the insulating, thermal, acoustic and ecological characteristics that other asphalt fabrics do not provide.
Low-density agglomerated cork rolls for sub-flooring are mainly used as an impact acoustic attenuator. Before laying the final flooring in a home (parquet, floating flooring, ceramics, wooden flooring, among others), the cork is installed on the floor and the chosen flooring on top.
The cork will prevent the noise of footsteps, heels or movements of chairs from moving to the lower floor. The usual thicknesses for this application range between 2 mm and 4 mm, depending on the characteristics of the home. It is important to bear in mind that the greater the thickness, the greater the acoustic attenuation.
