HEALTHY ROOMS THANKS TO HEALTHY FLOOR COVERINGS
All textile floor coverings from Vorwerk flooring significantly reduce the amount of fine dust in rooms. Because the carpets absorb fine particles, even allergy sufferers can breathe easier – making Vorwerk flooring carpets suitable for people with allergies and even recommended for them. Thanks to their innovative textile backing, which has been specially developed by Vorwerk flooring, the new acoustic tiles from the house of Vorwerk also allow for a healthier room climate. This is because they avoid the use of bitumen or PVC – resulting in the advantage that a real Vorwerk carpet is also absolutely odour-neutral.
In addition to the advantages which a textile floor covering offers for the air quality, it is also noise absorbing and kind to the body’s joints, and it can even lower heating costs with its insulting and thermal-storing characteristics.
SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTS WITH ECONYL® OCEAN PLASTIC
Not only are the characteristics of Vorwerk flooring products sustainable and healthy – sustainability also play a role when it comes to the choice of material from which the high-quality floor coverings are made. For instance, the surfaces of some Vorwerk carpets are made of special yarns (ECONYL® fibres), which consist of 100 per cent recycled material (fishing nets). Some products from the house of Vorwerk have a share of recycled material that is up to 40 per cent. Thanks to the use of these environmentally-friendly materials, these carpets feature the GREEN LABEL PLUS and comply with the strict values laid down by the US Carpet and Rug Institute.
