The cellular structure of cork, even in its granulated, roll or block form, consists of millions of “air cushions”. This makes cork the best choice for a wide variety of applications. Cork has the ability to simultaneously act as a thermal barrier, a sound insulator and a vibration dampener. Cork does not corrode, is extremely fire resistant and can bear heavy loads.
