3 - Insulation
- What about Insulation?
In Europe, DOMESPACE are insulated with cork which naturally contains 95% air; thus it has a better insulation capacity which does not subside after several years as does Fiberglass Insulation. We all know about cork stoppers of wine bottles that take in their initial volume, as they are withdrawn, even after many years of compression. Recognized for its exemplary insulating properties, cork is present in the hulls--the partitions under the floors--of the DOMESPACE. In the U.S. we use wood pulp.
- What is the soundproofing of the floors?
Soundproofing of the floors is already ensured by its 40 mm (1.57 inches) thickness that confers inertia to it. To reinforce soundproofing of the second floor (and to thus deafen noises of trampling), we also propose false ceilings with cork insulation. For optimal soundproofing, choosing doors is also crucial. A thick door with solid mass is guarantor of a very good soundproofing for the rooms.
