FLOWCRETE’S Green Floorzone Solution Revolutionises Sustainability Underfoot

Leading flooring manufacturer Flowcrete UK has developed a pioneering flooring package, which sets out to create the most sustainable and complete flooring solution available to the construction industry from a single manufacturer.

Representing substantial research and development, The GREEN Floorzone covers every aspect of a commercial flooring installation, from substrate through to final floor finish, with the option of underfloor heating and sound-proofing built-in.

The GREEN Floorzone features a number of sustainable flooring options including choices in resin floor finish and self-levelling screed, as well as an energy-saving underfloor heating system and noise reducing acoustic layer.

The resin floor finish features a number of sustainable options, including the seamless terrazzo Mondéco Mirrazzo, which can contain up to 60 per cent recycled material, Mondéco Crystal Ice, which has a significant amount of recycled mirror glass to reduce the need for additional lighting - as well as the natural stone carpet finishes Rustik and Naturewalk, for internal and external areas.

The seamless resin floor finishes are supported by a choice of seven products from Flowcrete’s market-leading and newly enhanced Isocrete Floor Screeds range, which have been given a green makeover with a new formulation free from Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC), and manufactured from a high percentage of natural and recycled raw materials.

An optional element of Green Floorzone involves the Isowarm underfloor heating system, which offers energy efficient savings of up to 30 per cent compared to conventional heating systems.

Another optional feature, which represents the first stage of the floorzone build-up is Isocrete Acoustic Foam, which reduces sound transfer between floors in multi occupancy environments.

The green performance of all these individual elements is measured in eight key areas; environmental efficiency, recycled content, manufacturing efficiency, transport, installation impact, durability, end of life alternatives and third party verification.

This information is published in an ‘at a glance’ guide, to give architects and specifiers an informed and comprehensive insight in to the sustainability credentials of the GREEN Floorzone package overall.

Alan Dean, Managing Director of Flowcrete UK, said: “The GREEN Floorzone heralds a new era in sustainable flooring, delivering a choice of innovative products with extensive performance and green credentials as standard.

“We are excited by what we have to offer and we believe it will transform the specification process of flooring systems in the UK and allow architects and specifiers to seamlessly meet the most stringent green construction ratings, such as BREEAM.

“The single source nature of The GREEN Floorzone also offers further sustainability benefits, with all products arriving on site from one source, with no wastage, and just one contractor responsible for the entire installation – all covered by one Flowcrete warranty.”

For more than 30 years, Flowcrete’s systems have been specified by architects and construction professionals for some of the world’s biggest projects.

They have been used extensively in areas including airports, stadia, hotels, hospitals, residential sites, offices, shopping centres, schools, colleges and universities and within this timeframe, millions of square metres of the systems have been installed.
