A-Z of Flooring – E is for Environment

There is a common misconception within the construction industry that all resin flooring systems are unsuitable for environmentally friendly or Green Star rated buildings, however this is not always the case.

Many of the resin flooring systems available on the market today are water-based, low VOC, contain recycled content, or are made up of rapidly renewable materials. In-built light reflective properties of some resin flooring systems can even aid owners and operators in reducing energy consumption.

The durability of high performance resin systems means that flooring lasts longer, the resin floors can remain in-situ where other shorter life-cycle floors need to be replaced due to wear and tear.

One of the key benefits of some resin flooring systems and life-cycle is the ability for the systems to be patch maintained. This allows for an improved life-cycle, which reduces the environmental impact of removal and replacement.
