HPS is part of an exceptionally high-wearing resistant system developed to offer a more resistant surface than any previous cork finish. HPS Panels unique features include antiscratch protection and slip/scuff resistance. HPS Panels are manufactured with cork, which is a completely natural, renewable and sustainable resource. When harvesting cork, no trees are cut down. The outer bark of the cork oak tree is removed and new bark grows back in its place. The tree can be harvested for up to 150 years and will live for 200 years or more.
