Sustainable and environmentally friendly flooring installation
The environment and sustainability is one of the most important issues facing the construction industry. LEED & BREEAM certification also puts pressure on companies and architects to specify and develop sustainable buildings, improve the safety of products and create a healthy work environment.
Fortunately, the days when floor coverings were installed by the use of solvent based products are over. Products with EMICODE EC1® certification are solvent-free, very low emission and guarantee excellent indoor air quality as well as providing the most ecological approach for flooring installations. Such products are also ideal for LEED & BREEAM certification.
The UZIN ÖKOLINE is an environmentally friendly range of flooring installation products which have been awarded EC1 Plus & Blue Angel certification. These products are suitable for the installation and renovation of all floors. From primers, smoothing compounds and adhesives, UZIN provides the answer. UZIN also have several products which have Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), which are suitable for clients which require a SKA rating or require products to meet ISO 14025.
Therefore, UZIN products create a healthy atmospheric environment as well as simultaneously meeting the requirements for occupational health and safety, room air quality and environmental compatibility.
