Our patented Ecotrust backing has more great features than just being the environmentally friendly choice for your floor projects. The soft felt material ensures optimum underfoot comfort in the rooms by creating a comfortable feel under the feet, which is neither too soft nor too yielding.
At the same time, the backings are so sturdy that they ensure optimum stability for the carpet tiles. This is important in terms of the quality of the tiling, including the nearly invisible joins that characterise our carpet tiles.
In addition, the Ecotrust backings feature unique acoustic advantages. For example, they reduce reverberations from speech and music very effectively. And the sound of footsteps is also absorbed by the soft material – not just in the individual room but also in the adjoining rooms. This is an advantage in office landscapes and hotels where many people move in close proximity, without it necessarily having to feel that way.
If you combine the Ecotrust backing with a carpet design crafted from the regenerated and regenerable ECONYL® yarn, you get a truly sustainable carpet. ECONYL® yarns are based on used fishing nets and other industrial wastes which are converted into durable carpet yarns.
These carpets are Cradle to Cradle CertifiedTM, and you are therefore guaranteed a carpet that is designed to be part of a closed-loop system that does not create waste – and which is made exclusively of materials that do not harm people and the environment.
We have a wide range of collections combining the Ecotrust backing with the ECONYL® yarn, including all carpet tile collections from the ReForm family: A New Wave Ecotrust, Artworks Ecotrust, Flux Ecotrust, Legend Ecotrust, Mano Ecotrust, Calico Ecotrust, Memory Ecotrust and Terra Ecotrust. The flat-woven collection Rawline Scala Ecotrust also falls into this category.
The Ecotrust backings are easily identified by the product name, which contains the word Ecotrust.
