MOVING TOWARDS ENVIRONMENTAL EXCELLENCE
At Airlay International, we take sustainability as a not-negotiable. Our carpet tiles ranges are manufactured in factories who use 100% Green Electricity, have ISO 14001 Environmental Certification and integrate ecodesign as a way of developing products & processes.
Airlay's ranges of carpet tiles and underlay are manufactured in factories with a genuine commitment and adherence to environmental impacts. All Airlay carpet underlay is made from up to 90% post industrial recycled foam and is fully recyclable. The foam is recycled from the manufacture of mattresses, car seats, chairs and lounge suites. The foam is sorted, heat treated and re-bonded into quality carpet underlay, thus minimising land fill and waste. In addition to this, our range of bamboo and laminate flooring also are eco-friendly and have recycled content.
Airlay's LVT range produces healthy and environmentally responsible flooring with its zero-waste-to-landfill production facility. During the manufacturing process, 100% of production water is recycled, and 100% of production waste is granulated to become part of new flooring in a closed-loop recycling process. This attention to quality also extends to our care for the environment; bringing green processes, standards and environmental protection into our category-leading sustainability program. Our LVT meets the most stringent emission/VOC standards in the world with a FloorScore certification for indoor air quality which contributes to LEED Credits.
With the implementation of an improved low-carbon press process, manufacturing has reduced 78% of its steam consumption. Our LVT manufacturing plant uses 100% natural gas for its manufacturing – the cleanest fossil fuel energy available in the world today. Over 85% of the raw materials are sourced within 800 km of their factory, with the goal of 100%. Airlay's luxury vinyl flooring is 100% recyclable. After the product life span, it can be recycled to make new flooring, without pollution or waste production.
We are working together with all our suppliers to further reduce industrial waste and our aim is to recycle all 100% of waste in the next few years, meaning zero landfill. Being 100% recyclable means we are helping reduce our footprint on the environment.
Airlay International Pty Ltd prides itself on the 100% utilisation of manufacturing waste.
