ACOUSTICORK® - SOUND CONTROL CORK UNDERLAY USED IN LUXURY APARTMENTS

Acousticork®, a sound control cork underlay, was the solution used in a rehabilitation project of the former official residence of the British Ambassador in Lisbon located in the Lapa quarter, with a view to creating a unique space while preserving and renovating the site. Here were built luxury apartments whose estimated unit price exceeds € 4M.

Acousticork® was installed last November and December 2011. Approximately 900m of this product in the size 940 x 120 x 8mm were used for the purpose of disconnecting the masonry from the structure of the buildings. The use of AcoustiCORK® allows that masonry walls meet additional functional requirements, in particular as regards stability, air and water tightness, thermal and acoustic comfort as well as an enhanced durability and functionality, which is a plus economically.
