CONSIDER THESE POINTS WHEN CHOOSING WOOD FLOORING
TO MAKE THE MOST SUSTAINABLE FLOORING CHOICE POSSIBLE:
ONLY USE CERTIFIED FLOORS
& PAY ATTENTION TO LABELS
Limit carbon intensive materials by using FSC™ and PEFC
certified floors (not just accredited companies) that are harvested
as part of responsible and sustainable forest management.
SPECIFY LONG LIFE WOOD
Choose carbon capturing materials by specifying long life wood products that lock away carbon and can be regenerated. This is about moving away from single-use floors to those that can be refurbished over decades and being prepared to choose floors with the least environmental impact.
CONSIDER THE LIFETIME COST
Long-lasting wood floors can be easily reused and reclaimed so
take into account the lifetime cost of the floor if possible.
For example, consider wood floors with thicker wear layers
where possible (at least 3 or 4mm), so that floors can be re-sanded.
20mm boards with a 6mm hardwood wear layer for example are even more long-lasting, more environmentally friendly and more cost effective long-term. To read more visit our blog STEP UP TO 20MM
a circular life
While we don’t want our floors to be replaced, you can rest
assured that they are fully recyclable, unlike manmade options.
