SUSTAINABLE PRODUCT POLICY
Being a part of a modern forestry industry means developing and implementing programs that will see ourselves as a sustainable and desirable product choice for our clients. ASF’s goal is to deliver products manufactured to the highest standards for sport whilst also delivering the most durable systems available, industry-leading life cycles and high load bearing capacity.
A solid wooden sports floor system is the most durable and desirable indoor sports surface available. It is one of the earth’s naturally grown resources and with responsible forestry practices applied, this resource can be harvested and regrown repeatedly. Where available we replace ‘traditional old growth lumber’ with new technological products such as plantation materials, engineered products and recycled materials.
ASF solely procures its materials from Government or Industry approved forest areas. Our solid flooring materials are milled in accordance with the following standards:
- Maple Flooring Manufacturers Association (MFMA)
- Australian Forestry Standards (AFS), and
- Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC).
NEW DIRECTION IN WOOD FLOORING.
STRENGTH: Entechco flooring has been rigorously tested. Modern-day sports facilities are NOT what they used to be; clients demand as much multi-purpose usage as possible. What may be a multi-court sports facility today, may turn into a 1500-2000 seat facility tonight. Large and heavy equipment is being utilised more and more in our buildings.
DURABILITY: When choosing your new sports floor, consider what products and surface will provide the best outcome for the facility. What flooring will give superior longevity; can the flooring be maintained over a number of decades, 50-75 years PLUS.
LONGEVITY: ASF’s new profile technology maximises the opportunities to offer an extended life cycle for your new investment. Giving our natural resources time to replenish for future generations to enjoy.
