What is SuperOrganic by Oberflex?
SuperOrganic by Oberflex is a range of 100% natural, decorative surfaces made exclusively from plants for wall, furniture, doors, and ceilings applications in interior design.
What is the genesis of this collection?
At Ober, we are committed to offering innovations that take into account respect for the environment. With this idea of decorative panels based on flower petals, organic hay or wood straw, we quickly realized that it was much more than just an eco-designed product. Besides being 100% natural and recyclable, the surfacing, once installed in an indoor space, ensures optimal air quality and provides visual, olfactory and tactile comfort that appeals to all nature lovers.
What is the manufacturing process?
The plant components (hay, petals, husks, etc.) are mechanically spread onto a non-woven linen substrate then pressed together using an eco-friendly binder. Made with edible flour and water, and free of any chemical additives, this patented binder is edible (approved for food contact and certified by the Food & Drug Administration) and fully biodegradable.
In what forms are SuperOrganic by Oberflex surfaces sold?
SuperOrganic by Oberflex surfaces are available in panels made of a flexible non-woven linen substrate lined with plants such as grass, flower petals, wood veneers, etc.
These flexible panels can be laminated onto MDF, chipboard, perforated acoustic panel, HPL, etc.
What are the dimensions of the panels?
The dimensions of the panels are 3.07 m x 1.30 m - 3.07 m x 1.02 m for Champs d'été and Murs de fleurs.
Is it possible to order other lengths?
For an order of several panels of the same model, we offer the possibility of not cutting them to length (e.g., 10 px of 3.07 m = 1 roll of 30.70 m). This allows the cabinetmaker to optimize his output according to the characteristics of the project.
Is there a minimum order?
The minimum order is 1 full size panel.
What is the thickness of a thin SuperOrganic panel ?
Depending on the model, thickness ranges from 0.4 mm to 1.4 mm.
What are the recommended installation techniques?
SuperOrganic flexible panels can be installed in two ways:
Wall cladding: glued to a clean and prepared wall (smooth and coated with a primer) using an acrylic glue (wall covering glue), in the same way as is done with traditional wall cladding.
Application on panels: glued to a hard substrate (MDF, particleboard, doors, etc.) to be installed using traditional installation methods or cabinetmaking methods.
What type of glue should I use to install SuperOrganic surfaces?
For wall installation: use high-performance vinyl or acrylic adhesives for wall coverings and technical installations, according to the manufacturer's instructions for use.
Metylan Ovalit F or Metylan Ovalit S adhesives are particularly suitable.
For application on panels: Acrylic or vinyl adhesives to be applied with a paint roller onto the substrate and manually applied with a rubber roller.
For contact adhesives (double gluing): we recommend spraying and manual application with a rubber roller.
Is it necessary to apply a finish on SuperOrganic surfaces?
SuperOrganic surfaces are not designed to be varnished just like a stretched fabric or a typical wall covering (Nobilis, Arte, Elitis, ...etc.). They are used "au naturel," without finish, in order to preserve their untreated and natural quality. In this way, everyone will instantly recognize the aesthetic, olfactory and sensory qualities of a material straight from nature.
Is it technically possible to apply additional protective coating to SuperOrganic surfaces?
For some specific applications (e.g., credenzas, bathroom furniture, floors, etc.), it is possible to varnish or oil the surfaces of SuperOrganic by Oberflex panels with traditional products. In this case, we recommend that a preliminary test be carried out to confirm the aesthetic appearance and mechanical resistance of the product used.
FIRE RESISTANCE RATING
What is the fire resistance rating of SuperOrganic panels?
We do not put any additives in or on SuperOrganic surfaces. They are 100% natural, therefore, they do not have a specific fire resistance rating.
For a direct installation on walls made of plaster or plasterboard(non-flammable), there is usually no particular requirement due to the reduced thickness of the SuperOrganic surface. However, a colorless intumescent coating can be applied after installation.
For some applications such as for high-rise or public buildings, the control office will be able to specify its requirements according to the type of use and the calorific value of the selected model (thickness and density).
If the surface is mounted on a panel, you can reapply the thin surface onto a fire-resistant substrate and/or apply a fire-retardant varnish to it.
We also offer systems of laminated panels with a Bs1d0 rating. These are made of SuperOrganic surfaces (Alpages and Alpages+ models) glued onto a non-flammable substrate (vermiculite type).
What do you mean by "upcycled materials"?
Upcycling is the process of recovering materials or products that are no longer used in order to transform them into materials or products of superior quality or utility. One of the primary benefits of upcycling is its positive impact on the environment.
As it relates to SuperOrganic surfaces, upcycling, for example, involves recovering spelt husks meant to be discarded from local flour mills, to make a decorative coating (spelt model).
It also means recovering scraps of oak and walnut veneer used to manufacture Oberflex panels to make fine flakes and bind them together ("Oak Straw" and "Walnut Straw" models).
Are SuperOrganic surfaces fully biodegradable?
There are no plastic or ferrous substances in SuperOrganic products. They are therefore 100% biodegradable.
Where do the plant components come from?
The plant components (hay, flower petals, etc.) come mostly from the Alpine mountains, and more particularly, from the Austrian Tyrol, known for its very diversified nature and the beauty of its landscapes. Depending on the altitude, one can find a multitude of fertilizer-free wild grasses, lark's feet, purple blueberries, blueberries, daisies, mosses, etc. The mountain pastures are harvested in August to promote regrowth and limit the risk of avalanches in winter.
Some flowers, such as lavender and rose, come from organic crops grown in France.
The "Paille de Noyer" and "Paille de Chêne" models are made with veneers from Ober workshops in the east of France.
What are the acoustic qualities of SuperOrganic surfaces?
SuperOrganic surfaces, as such, improve the acoustic comfort of interior spaces.
The soft and porous nature of the surface alone gives it sound absorption qualities.
For optimum absorption, Oberflex suggests veneering the surfaces onto perforated substrates. In this way, the sound wave is absorbed and almost entirely transmitted to the substrate.
How are acoustic panels manufactured?
Acoustic panels are made of a non-perforated SuperOrganic flexible panel (any model of your choice except "Mur de fleurs" and "Champ d'été"), glued onto a perforated MDF substrate and covered with black felt on the back side. The perforation is therefore not visible and the 100% natural decor remains identical to that of the other panels.
What is the acoustic performance of SuperOrganic panels?
SuperOrganic surfaces on Flax are "acoustically transparent". Their acoustic performance will therefore be that of the perforated MDF panel used as a backing for the back of the SuperOrganic surface. Example: Perforated substrate with an 8 mm diameter and a 16 mm center distance, the coefficient αw = 0.75 (see acoustic performance on page 126 of the Oberflex catalog).
Does SuperOrganic glued directly to the wall improve acoustic comfort?
The composition of the product (non-woven linen+ plants) and its relative thickness of +/-1 mm gives it acoustic qualities. Indeed, part of the sound wave is absorbed by the material, which reduces reverberation time.
Do the olfactory qualities of SuperOrganic by Oberflex surfaces fade over time?
The olfactory perception of SuperOrganic by Oberflex and its durability vary according to:
- The spatial configuration: air circulation is different in a small enclosed space versus a reception hall.
- The chosen model: the olfactory intensity of lavender is different from that of hay.
- The human nose that gets used to smells: a regular user will no longer smell the scent, whereas a client will smell it immediately.
We carry sprays that help refresh the scents.
Can the plants in SuperOrganic panels cause allergies (hay fever, etc.)?
No. The binder used has the particularity of blocking allergenic substances while allowing natural scents to come through. Sensitive people will therefore not be exposed.
We have certificates attesting to the non-allergenic qualities of SuperOrganic surfaces.
How to clean unvarnished surfaces
Just like for textile tapestry, unvarnished SurperOrganic surfaces can be vacuumed or cleaned using a lightly moist soft cloth. Do not use detergents or other cleaning products.
