No Fault is now an official representative of the Corkeen brand and its exclusive system. No Fault will be able to certify their own installers, ensuring great quality when installing Corkeen system within this geographic territory.

Sustainable, safe, and fully accessible, Corkeen is a revolutionary solution for the construction of fall protection systems for children’s playgrounds, composed of cork—a 100% natural, renewable and recyclable material.

Produced and developed by Amorim, world leader in the cork industry, Corkeen emerges as an eco-friendly alternative to existing accessible solutions composed entirely of materials of synthetic origin.

This innovative surfacing system for playgrounds complies with EN1176 and EN1177 standards and has been designed so that all children can play safely.

Corkeen does not contain toxic or chemical substances such as heavy metals, EDCs, TVOCs, formaldehyde, or PAHs, making it a completely safe system for children. It is also environmentally friendly, since it does not contain rubber or plastic granules.

Compared to solutions composed of rubber (EPDM and/or SBR)—materials traditionally used as safety surfacing—Corkeen system presents a significantly higher drainage capacity. Given the natural features of cork, Corkeen also has a great capacity for thermal insulation, thereby permitting lower temperature accumulation at the surface.

Inclusion is also a special feature of this revolutionary system. Compared to surfaces composed of loose materials (such as sand, bark, and wood chips), Corkeen system guarantees total accessibility, even for children and parents with reduced mobility, allowing playtime and happiness without any limits.

The installation is done in situ, which allows the implementation of even the most complex landscape modelling.

Corkeen is a brand by Amorim, a company with 150 years of history in the cork industry and which is constantly committed to innovation and sustainability.
