Berlin, GermanyCorkeen system installed in a parkour circuit Case Studies
Cork offers safety to parkour practitioners
Corkeen's first project in Germany is an outdoor parkour circuit, around 200 m2, located in the office complex, TechoCampus Berlin, near to the Siemensstadt area.
The Corkeen system is made from cork and complies with the strict EN 1176 and EN 1177 safety standards. It is the ideal surface to cushion almost inevitable falls while learning and practicing parkour.
The system was installed by the Corkeen brand master for the German market, PAG Flooring Systems, in partnership with TraceSpace, who designed the parkour circuit with executives from Paul Wolff and Turnbar.
Siemensstadt 2.0, a city of the future
TechnoCampus, where the new parkour circuit is located, forms part of a broad renovation plan for Berlin’s Siemensstadt area. This is a joint initiative between Siemens, the city of Berlin and the municipality of Spandau which aims to completely transform the area by 2035, creating a new concept of life, work, and technological research.
One of the new Siemensstadt neighbourhood’s goals is to achieve carbon neutrality. This is why the choice of cork and the Corkeen system fully fits into the project. Produced using a natural, sustainable, and renewable raw material and with a negative carbon balance, the Corkeen system is one of the most innovative and sustainable products in the market for shock absorbing surfaces for play and recreation areas.
