Carbon Negative, 100% Natural Cork Board Insulation & Facade
IN STOCK AND READY TO SHIP
Small Planet Supply is the exclusive stocking distributor of Thermacork for the western United States and Canada. A full range of sizes and types are maintained in our Tumwater, Washington facility. We stock 1", 1-1/2", 2", 3" thick standard and Facade/Decorative Grade panels. Thicknesses up to 12" are available for planned projects. For Passive House or other low energy projects, thickness of 4" and 6" can be achieved in a single layer with a shiplap cut. With one layer and one trip around the building, the shiplap cut can be an economical alternative to other rigid insulation boards that require multiple layers to achieve the same value. Contact us for "shiplap joinery" to help apply thick panels onto wood frame buildings in easy steps.
IT'S AN ENERGY SAVER
Cork insulation will drastically reduce energy consumption, and its energy saving qualities will last decades, far longer than most choices. This is due to cork's high insulation value, stability, and its reduction of thermal bridging.
Cork is incredibly stable and can cope with major thermal variations, between (-) 292 degrees F to (+) 248 degrees F. It's hypoallergenic and free of all domestic toxins, all while preventing mold by its ability to "dry through" layers. It's high on the insulating range (R-4 per inch), reduces thermal bridging, and its thermal resistance does not decrease over time like man-made foam. It has excellent sound isolation, is dimensionally stable, and resistant to compression.
EASY AND FRIENDLY TO APPLY
Working with cork doesn't leave you itching and scratching. It doesn't leave the job site covered in foam particles. There are no endocrine damaging fire retardants. It doesn't compress like mineral wool so there are no tedious screws to move in or out to keep a wall plane straight. It comes in packs that are easy to lift and carry, and panels that are easy to apply and can be nailed in place with a nail gun.
