NAVURBAN™ Achieves Green Building Requirements For Interior Fitout
NAVURBAN™ transforms interiors with an environmentally conscious take on the traditional decorative panel.
The Global GreenTag certified decorative MDF woodgrain panel, designed and manufactured by New Age Veneers (NAV), works with a unique, Japanese non PVC Olefin surface technology.
The product also successfully meets the rating criteria as set out by the Green Building Council of Australia’s Green StarTM rating system, which calls for products that reduce health and environmental impacts for the interior fitout.
The NAVURBAN™ product re-creates the design and texture of wood in a high performance olefin surface that provides long-term performance for interior applications that is not achieved with traditional wood finishes: including a high resistance to scratching, staining and abrasions, excellent UV stability and low moisture absorption.
The Olefin embossing technology creates a tactile surface in a range of effects not available with traditional decorative panels, including intricate woodgrains from fine to cross grain or rough-sawn qualities and heavily textured woodgrains in more than 50 timber designs and colours.
Importantly, the NAVURBAN™ range contributes to achieving Green Star credits for indoor environment quality (IEQ) and materials (MAT). The wood fibre used to make the E0 MDF substrate of the product is sourced from responsibly managed pine plantations and is PEFCTM chain of custody certified (SA-PEFC/COC-002419).
In addition NAVURBAN™ is healthy to be around. It emits very low levels of formaldehyde and volatile organic compounds (VOC’s), which can affect indoor air quality in high concentrations.
NAVURBAN™ was assessed by eco-label Global GreenTag and achieved a GreenTagCertTM GreenRate Level B Certification under Scheme B4.
