Carpet tiles from recycled yarn

Carpet tiles from recycled yarn

The collection has also been manufactured to include less yarn than ever before. The recycled yarn in Biosfera I consists of 30 per cent post-consumer recycled raw materials from a variety of sources; these include reclaimed commercial fishing nets that have reached the end of their useful life and end of life yarn and backing material from InterfaceFLOR’s own products. The company reclaims the carpet tiles and reprocesses the yarn and backing through ReEntry 2.0, a pioneering carpet tile recycling system. 

The Biosfera I collection includes three products; Bouclé, Velour and Micro. Based on popular tufted designs, these have been re-engineered to include as little yarn as possible, whilst maintaining high performance. InterfaceFLOR has achieved the lowest yarn weight ever for a carpet tile with Micro, which is manufactured using the company’s pioneering Microtufting technology; this offers the durability of a hard floor with the acoustics and feel of soft carpet.

Cool Carpet comes as standard, which means the product’s carbon emissions are offset during its entire lifecycle, using a verified provider. The tiles also include InterfaceFLOR’s TacTiles as standard, an innovative glue-less installation system that helps to maintain good indoor air quality.
