Cork beats rubber again as a better Acoustic underlay in recent testing

On a recent on-site testing, ecoCORK once again came out as the better product for the project. For this project in Newstead, the Body Corporate had a very high requirement for the L’nT,w (acoustic performance) of the product. In this case it was directly tested up against an 8mm rubber product that was originally put forward for the project.

The eCORK MF6 6mm Acoustic Underlay was tested as an alternative against the rubber product. It was to no surprise that the Cork product, even at 6mm, vs the rubber product at 8mm, came out on top.

Not only do they now have a natural and environmentally friendly product, they will also benefit from its thermal performance, great feeling underfoot and its noise absorption qualities, rather than causing a terrible echo that alternative underlays do.

The installers and flooring manufacturers are now also happy as installation will be easier, faster, non toxic and can now also provide warranties on the overall flooring system, including adhesion.
