Composition & Manufacture

Ecotile is injection moulded using either virgin, recycled or a combination of both virgin and recycled material.

Standards & Accreditation

Meets & exceeds requirements. BS EN685:1996 (Resilient & laminate floor coverings) BS EN649:1997 (Resilient floor coverings. Homogenous & heterogeneous pvc floor coverings)

Life Cycle Cost

Ecotile is a loose laid system so in the event of damage or excessive wear individual tile can be lifted and replaced significantly extending the life of the floor and reducing the life cycle cost.

Sustainability

Ecotile is 100% recyclable, at the end of its service life the tiles can be granulated and re-used to manufacture a new floor. Most floor coverings only have a limited life span due to wear or the building occupier’s wishes to refurbish or alter the buildings appearance. Most waste floor coverings will end up in land fill due to the fact that once it has been adhered to the floor it cannot be re-used. Not only can Ecotile be recycled but there is a strong market for pre-owned tiles.

Anticipated Service Life

25 years +

Recycled Content

Black 100%
Light/Dark Grey 75-100%
Colours 50-100%
Percentage may vary subject to availability and quality of recycled material.
