This EPD provides environmental performance indicators for a loose-laid raised access flooring system comprising Kingspan Access Floors FDEB1 panel combined with its Europed pedestals and caps. This is a cradle-to-gate EPD in accordance with the requirements of EN 15804, and thus covers the modules A1 - A3 defined in that standard. The declared unit is 1 square metre (1m2) of flooring system.
The FDEB1 panel is based on a 600mm-square module made of a high-performance high-density particle chipboard core; its bottom surface is laminated with galvanised-steel sheet. A vinyl surface finish is laminated to the top surface and the panel is encapsulated by a full-depth edge ABS band to protect the edge of the surface finish.
The Europed pedestal is of a zinc-plated steel construction to allow electrical continuity, and pre-assembled to help minimize installation time.
The FDEB1 Europed flooring system is fully-tested to the requirements of the European Standard for raised access floors BS EN 12825.
