The yarn used for the new ReForm range of flooring introduced by Danish producer, Ege Carpets, is derived from discarded fishing nets and other industrial waste regenerated as new flooring. The yarn has further sustainable qualities because, after use, it can then be broken down to its original chemical components and recycled as a new nylon product.
KBAC Flooring, in its 50th year of operations, is the sole South African distributor of Ege Carpets.
To add to the range’s recycling qualities, all Ege ReForm carpet tiles backing is made from the company’s patented Ecotrust, sourced from used water bottles converted into a soft but durable felt that benefits acoustics, foot comfort levels – and the environment.
Although new on the global market, Ege’s ReForm flooring has already been successfully fitted in hotels, educational institutions and other environments where its “green” credentials, flexibility, multidimensional texture and appearance strongly influenced specifiers.
