Environmentally friendly flooring is becoming increasingly popular across the United States. Businesses are demanding sustainable flooring options as we all strive to protect our planet and its natural resources.
Facility managers are under pressure to source flooring systems that meet the unique demands of their business. Add sustainability into the mix and it can be a daunting task to find a floor that’s durable, hygienic, easy to maintain, and kind to the environment.
Everlast® Epoxy offers sustainable flooring systems that, unlike a wooden floor, will not contribute to deforestation issues. Epoxy flooring is a durable alternative that lasts for years, reducing the overall cost and environmental impact when compared with other flooring systems.
No harsh solvents
Everlast® Epoxy flooring is manufactured from natural stones and uses only organic resins. Most epoxy flooring systems use harsh solvents that contribute to the depletion of the ozone layer and produce bad odors.
Our flooring system doesn’t use solvents, so there are no evaporation or contamination issues, making it one of the greenest floors available.
Recycled content means less landfill waste
Everlast® Epoxy’s eco-friendly flooring is a responsible way to reduce the number of glass bottles, copper, and porcelain that ends up at a landfill site. We replace the marble chips used in the manufacture of our regular epoxy flooring with glass and crushed bathroom fixtures to preserve natural resources and recycle items that would otherwise be thrown away.
When you purchase an eco-friendly floor, it comes with a recycled content certificate for your LEED project.
Not only are our floors eco-friendly, there is no compromise on quality either—the epoxy resins in our eco-friendly floor are the same as in our marble-chipped system, so they share the same healthy and durable qualities as regular Everlast® Epoxy flooring.
Gentle cleaners that are tough on bacteria
We at Everlast® Epoxy are actively promoting the benefits of Vital Oxide, a ready-to-use cleaning solution, because it is listed as a category IV cleaner according to the EPA, the lowest toxicity category.
This solution is also EPA-approved for use against SARS-Cov-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, which will help you maintain a sanitary and hygienic facility.
The Everlast® Epoxy Floor Care System is ideal for use in commercial kitchens, as it helps prevent any grease or fat from building up in drains, which can cause blockages.
Our cleaners last longer too. The nonporous nature of epoxy flooring means the cleaning fluid won’t soak in—so a little goes a long way.
A flooring system that will last for years
Having to replace failed flooring causes a headache for facility managers. It’s expensive and can result in downtime, which is why it is vital to choose a floor that will provide long-lasting value.
But it’s not only about savings in time and money; with an Everlast® Epoxy floor, you’ll benefit from environmental savings too. The system is durable, hard-wearing, and designed to last for decades, which reduces the overall environmental impact of replacing a failed flooring system.
Easy installation with less waste
Most flooring options create waste after installation. Carpet scraps, cracked tiles, and scrap pieces leftover from rubberized flooring will need to be disposed of, adding to the cost of a project and more items in the nation’s landfill sites.
Everlast® Epoxy flooring reduces waste as it is installed one bucket at a time—and even the plastic buckets and cardboard boxes are fully recyclable. On average, the nonrecyclable waste of an installation weighs less than 50 pounds.
Eco-friendly and looks great too!
Our eco-friendly epoxy floor contains recycled glass chips, adding another 12 colors to the 53 marble-chipped colors we already produce. Many of our customers remark on how the light reflection of the glass adds a colorful depth to their flooring.
You can count on Everlast® Epoxy Eco-Friendly Flooring to provide a great first impression with a fresh and modern appearance that is easy to clean and maintain. For the perfect finishing touch, our expert installation team can incorporate logos into the design for an attractive, professional floor that helps to protect the planet while also adding to the appeal of your floor.
