These next-generation engineered wood products are strong, lightweight, and eco-friendly.

February 12, 2021, Brunswick, Georgia – Kerfkore announced today that it is launching two new products as part of its ultra-lightweight line: Worklite® GPS Foamkore and Worklite® PHC Hexkore.

Since the 1980s, the Kerfkore Company has been known for its innovations in lightweight and bendable engineered wood products. Architects have used their products to provide architectural interest in many different settings including university campuses, office spaces, healthcare settings, and hotels to name a few.

Worklite® GPS Foamkore and Worklite® PHC Hexkore are the latest products in Kerfkore’s lightweight product line and can reduce weight by up to 80% over traditional materials.

“Our customers are looking for ultra-lightweight materials because they open up more design possibilities. The great thing about these products is that they have an incredibly high strength-to-weight ratio,” said Dave Quackenbush, President of Kerfkore.

Both products are also eco-friendly.

Worklite® PHC Hexkore, with its distinctive hexagon cell structure, is 100% recyclable and biodegradable.

Worklite® GPS Foamkore is infused with high purity graphite to give the insulation a reflective property which increases energy efficiency, significantly slowing the transfer of heat.

As with all of Kerfkore’s lightweight products, both Worklite® GPS Foamkore and Worklite® PHC Hexkore can be installed using conventional fabrication methods and can be customized with decorative surfacing veneers, paint, or metal finishes.

Quackenbush adds: “These products are creating a lot of excitement because they are totally customizable so they can meet your design requirements. They are a great addition to our Worklite® line.”
