Advanced Flooring Systems for buildings of the future

Concept + Series Cork

Concept + Cork is a finished system providing strong, durable panels with the natural comfort and warmth of cork. Sustainable, natural and easy to maintain, these cork panels provide beauty, warmth and durability whilst allowing the functionality of an access floor with 100% underfloor accessibility.

Cork is sourced from the outer bark of the Quercus Super Cork oak tree. These trees grow mainly in the Mediterranean region of the world. The harvest, which occurs every 9 years, does not harm the tree, and allows the tree’s life to continue.

Cork comprises a natural waxy substance called Suberin that makes it naturally resistant to moisture, mould and mildew. It also helps retain the air, making cork a great natural insulator.

As cork’s composition is millions of air-filled cells, it allows sound absorption, air tightness, waterproof properties, slip resistance and the elasticity to return to its original shape after compression.

The Concept + Cork range is an environmentally friendly option with 100% post-industrial recycled content.

The cork is prefinished onto a 600x600mm access floor panel, ensuring that your design maintains functional accessibility to the services in the underfloor space such as power, data, fire and hydraulics.

 

The Cork Colour Hub is a great starting point to choosing the best finish for your design. However, if you are looking for something different, we are happy to work with you to design a specifically designed panel for your project.

Environmental Product Declaration  (EPD®)

ASP Access Floors are the only access floor company in the Southern Hemisphere to have obtained an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD®).
An Environmental Product Declaration, EPD®, is a verified document that reports environmental data of products based on life cycle assessment (LCA) and other relevant information, and in accordance with the international standard ISO 14025 (Type III Environmental Declarations).

 

For builders, developers and their corporate and government clients, the data and information in an EPD provide a framework for making informed product comparisons to help make buildings and infrastructure more sustainable.

For this reason, Australasian EPD’s are recognised by the Green Building Councils of Australia and New Zealand, as well as the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia.

 

The Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) recognises that Australasian EPDs may be used by project teams using the Design & As Built and Interiors rating tools to obtain Green Star points under the following credits:
• Materials > Product Transparency and Sustainability.
• Materials > Life Cycle Assessment: By providing data for an EN 15978 compliant whole-of-building whole-of-life assessment.
• Innovation Challenge > Responsible Carbon Impact: By providing embodied carbon impacts (i.e. data on Global Warming Potential) which can be used in the calculation and reduction of the total embodied carbon impacts of a project.
