Sustainability and Corporate Responsibility

 

Taking the environment seriously
 
Both Duraflor and its production partners are committed to a programme of environmental improvement. This includes compliance with internationally recognised regulatory standards, energy consumption and ensuring wastage is significantly reduced. Both Carpet Tiles and Vinyl Flooring are produced as part of a highly sophisticated recycling programme to ensure minimal environmental impact. Our carpet tiles are made with recycled yarn, some ranges use 100% recycled yarn. Equally recycled product is used in the tile backing, some tile backing is 100% recycled.
 
BREEAM rated products
 
Recognition of the sustainability of our products is important to us. Many of products in the Duraflor range have been tested and all these rate either A+ or A for Retail, Health, Schools and Office use.
 
Carpet tile part-exchange
 
As a part of our environmental programme, and to assist our customers with the problem of disposing of used carpet tiles, Duraflor offer a part-exchange service. All Duraflor nylon pile, bitumen-backed carpet tiles can be recycled and now we are able to accept any tiles of this type in ‘part exchange’ regardless of the brand, size style or condition.
