Green… the colour of care

BerberPoint Eco – the green flooring alternative

New BerberPoint Eco from Nexus, the commercial division of Belgotex Floors, is the green alternative for architectural choice in carpeting.

Offering all the outstanding specification and performance characteristics of BerberPoint 920 but with the option of recycled content, BerberPoint Eco provides a foundation for specifiers and designers to build their green credentials.

The structured needlepunch range is made from Stainproof Eco Fibre comprising recycled polyester made out of PET plastic bottles combined with a polypropylene blend to produce an eco-friendly top-cloth. Recycling one ton of plastic bottles saves one and a half tons of CO2 versus landfills and incineration.

Eight bestselling colourways are available, each with a pre-determined percentage of recycled content in the top cloth ranging between 20% – 50% from lightest to darkest tones.

BerberPoint Eco extends the company’s renowned Eco Collection and is manufactured according to stringent ISO14001 environmental standards. It is available in either modular or broadloom options. A selection of optional backings for modular carpet ranges, including either ResinBac , NexBac or new NexBac Eco backings, is available on request.

For the ultimate eco-friendly carpet solution, select a green backing alternative too.

New NexBac Eco is a green backing alternative available for any Nexus tile range and contains 35% recycled content. It is produced using post-industrial fly-ash derived from an industrial steam-generation process which is blended with the normal NexBac mixture to produce an environmentally friendly backing with proven low VOC levels. The NexBac Eco production process can save up to two hundred tons of fly-ash from landfill sites and reduce consumption of an equal amount of calcium carbonate (a natural resource also known as chalk).

BerberPoint Eco backed with NexBac Eco results in 27% recycled content overall.

All Belgotex Floors’ products bear the Environmental Choice logo for environmentally friendly production processes.

The unsung hero of design, flooring is often incorrectly relegated to an after-thought in the planning and preparation of a project, leaving very little budget, and missing the opportunity to give a project that intangible X-factor.
