It's the end of the line for boring offices! Make a statement with Striped Carpet Tiles
Let's not walk all over the environment
Our two ranges of eco-conscious carpet tiles both feature a high level of recycled content, both in the pile itself and in the backing material. They're also manufactured using methods that minimise environmental impact.
We've set the bar at a minimum of 70% recycled yarn material in the overall tile, But that's just a starting point, we're out to beat our own benchmark. Take for example the primary backing; it's made from 100% post-consumer recycled material, most of which comes from polyester bottle scrap. But this has to be transported to the factory, so to cut fuel wastage the recycled material is gathered from sources local to manufacture. Secondary backing has proved a problem for recyclers in the past - the required characteristics for this essential layer haven't been available without using new raw materials. In fairness, this is still a problem, but it is possible to reduce the environmental load by in-process recycling. The process that manufactures our eco-tiles uses the cutting waste to make the secondary backing, giving this component a 10% post-industrial recycled content. So overall the carpet tile is made from 10% recycled secondary backing, 100% recycled primary backing, and 70% recycled pile material.
But there's no need to sacrifice quality and performance while being conscientious about protecting our world. Both ranges are contract quality and able to cope with commercial usage.
If we're serious about reducing our damage to the environment then we have to start from the ground up.
