Sustainable floors are fast becoming a requirement in commercial or industrial facilities as we become more aware of protecting our planet.
Many businesses across the United States opt for epoxy flooring because it’s practical, durable, and budget-friendly. But what about the environmental impact of epoxy resin flooring?
You may be surprised to discover that unlike many of our competitors, Everlast® Epoxy floors have multiple environmental benefits:
Our epoxy floors are pourable and trowelable, which means there are no offcuts or breakages to end up in landfill sites.
Everlast® Epoxy floors are installed by pouring one bucketful at a time - and the only waste from the installation will be the bucket itself. Our resins and aggregates are supplied in plastic recyclable buckets and cardboard boxes to further minimize waste and reduce our company's environmental impact.
No harsh detergents needed
Our epoxy floors are seamless and non-porous, making them incredibly resistant to spillages and stains. As spills remain on the surface, cleaning the floor is easy - and there is no need for harsh chemicals or detergents.
Our Everlast® Floor Cleaner is listed as the lowest toxicity category by the EPA - and with every bottle comes our Everlast® promise that we continually strive toward increasingly environmentally sound cleaning solutions.
Even a deep clean can be eco-friendly, as thanks to the high degree of heat resistance in our flooring, you can steam clean your floor regularly without harming the surface.
Save on energy costs
Everlast® Epoxy floors are reflective and add brightness to any space. This reduces the amount of lighting needed at the facility and offers an environmental benefit - plus a big saving on energy bills.
No need to dispose of old flooring
If you’re considering replacing a failed floor with a resin alternative, it’s possible in many cases to simply install our Everlast floors directly over the old one - meaning less waste to be disposed of - and a fast turnaround time for your installation!
Our floors adhere to almost any properly prepared surface to form a vulcanized bond with the substrate it is installed over.
No harmful solvents or fillers
We don’t dilute our high-quality floors with harmful solvents. By using the correct mix of aggregates and resin we ensure our floors are longer-lasting than many ‘thinned down’ alternatives.
And, with no toxic solvents in our flooring products, there are no nasty vapors or odors to harm staff and visitors - or to drift into the air and cause environmental damage.
Everlast® Eco-Friendly Floor
Our sustainable floors range also includes a variation that utilizes recycled glass bottles - and includes a recycled content certificate for your company’s LEED project, if required.
By installing our Everlast® Eco-Friendly Flooring you are also playing your part in keeping glass bottles out of our nation's landfills while minimizing your company’s use of our planet's natural resources.
