BREEAM measures sustainable value through a range of categories: energy and water use, health and wellbeing, pollution, transport, waste, ecology and management processes, as well as materials used. Green Guide Ratings can either use a generic rating or a certified rating.
The generic for Carpet Tiles in offices is ‘B’. Our certified products achieve ‘A’ for Offices and in most case ‘A+’ for Retail, School and Health.
Choosing the right yarn for the carpet range does have an impact and while our ranges have impeccable credentials, we know from experience that some of our customers appreciate the additional environmental choices they can make.
Our heavyweave construction designer tiles come with a 20-year commercial wear guarantee. Designing for longevity is another way we help you make sustainable choices.
We offer Envir0back, a carpet tile backing made with 75% recycled content on many of our ranges. These products use 100% recycled filler to ISO 140121. Enabling you to make even greater sustainable choices.
We know the importance of recycling. As part of our environmental programme, and to assist customers with the problems of disposing of used carpet tiles, Duraflor offers a part-exchange service.
We also support the Recofloor Vinyl Take-Back Scheme. Helping in every way that we can to reduce waste.
