Green Access floors prove big hit with consumers
Kingspan Access Floors, the UK’s leading manufacturer of access flooring systems, is continuing to experience strong demand for its products, in spite of the current economic climate. The company believes that this is due at least in part to the fact that their floor panels, which are the most regularly specified in the UK, are manufactured from responsibly sourced timber accredited by the FSC (Forestry Stewardship Council).
“Over the last few years, the construction industry has seen a shift towards greener and more ethical building, driven by the corporate and social responsibility policies of large companies and public sector organisations”, said Danielle Clayton, Sales and Market Coordinator of Kingspan Access Floors.
By buying our FSC accredited products, purchasers are able to promote the responsible and sustainable management of the world’s forests and have the assurance that the rights of workers and communities are respected. Since Kingspan is the only manufacturer to hold FSC Chain of Custody accreditation, this trend is working strongly in our favour.”
FSC accreditation is only one arm of Kingspan’s continued commitment to the environment. They are also accredited to ISO 14001: 2004 Environmental Management, purchase their electricity exclusively from renewable sources and use steel containing 20% recycled material in the manufacture of their floor panels. All Kingspan panels are manufactured in the UK, thereby reducing carbon footprint to a minimum.
FSC is an independent, non-governmental, not for profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests. Products carrying the FSC label are independently certified to assure consumers that they come from forests that are managed to meet the social, economic and ecological needs of present and future generations.
Kingspan Access Floors is the UK’s leading provider of raised access flooring products, systems and installation services and offer a wide range of products, designed to meet any performance and specification requirement, backed with expert support and quality service.
All supply and installation works carried out are supported by an industry leading 25 year System and Quality Assurance to ISO 9001 for both manufacture and installation.
