Tessera - carpet tiles

As part of the production process of our Tessera carpet tiles we are always looking to reduce the amount of virgin materials we use. For example, instead of throwing away yarn ends, we rewind them and tuft them into our Tessera range.

All of our UK-produced tufted carpet tiles have at least 56% recycled content (by weight), with some containing an impressive 75%.

We even have a range made with up to 100% ECONYL® regenerated yarn.

Entrance Flooring Systems

Keeping the world outside, outside

Sustainable flooring starts at the door, with our Coral textile entrance flooring systems. Many of our Coral collections are made from ECONYL® – a high quality yarn made from 100% regenerated polyamide. Regenerated from recyclable material such as abandoned fishing nets and even old carpet fluff! In addition, the primary backing of Coral Welcome is made from recycled plastic PET bottles.

We make Coral in a factory that runs entirely on green electricity and sends virtually zero waste to landfill and 100% of our aluminium, steel and rubber waste from our Nuway production is recycled.

And for those customers wanting a ‘natural’ entrance system, we offer Nuway Tuftiguard with Bamboo scraper bars. Bamboo is a sustainable species of grass and one of the fastest growing plants on earth.

Read the Work Fever Report

Currently, the UK is one of the top three countries in the world for the highest instances of allergy with over 21 million adults suffering from some kind of allergic reaction. One of the common causes of asthma and allergies is the exposure to dust mites in soft furnishings and carpets.

The survey revealed that office cleaning is infrequent and does not appear adequate enough to prevent the build up of house dust mites and allergens, with 37% reporting their office is cleaned just once a week or less. With 20% of respondents spending eight hours or more at work, the combination of visibly dusty and cluttered desks, soft furnishings, poorly vacuumed carpets and a lack of ventilation is not conducive to a healthy working environment.
