Eco-Friendly Flooring Underlyament
Our Commitment – For Today’s Lifestyles
Our corporate commitment is to conduct ourselves responsibly with sustainable environmental policies. We’ve built our internal policies to reduce waste, use sustainable materials, and surpass emissions standards. We believe you should feel good about the flooring underlay materials used in your home and their environmental impact. Our hardwood flooring underlayment is both safe and responsible!
- ECF is infused throughout with anti-microbial protection, not just the top or bottom surface, to ensure a lifetime of protection.
- No Proposition 65 Chemicals are used in manufacturing ECF.1
- ECF has Ultra Low VOCs & Leach Emissions: ECF surpasses California’s Section 01350, the most stringent Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) emissions standards in North America.
- Only FSC2 certified cork is used in the manufacturing of our cork flooring underlayment.
- ECF is bio-degradable up to 85% in twelve months in a proper landfill environment, reducing long-term waste.
- Each roll of ECF is 75 square feet of material. The average room size is 12’ x 12’, or 144 square feet. With two rolls of our engineered flooring underlay (150 sq. ft.), there is little to no waste. Most underlayments have 100 square feet per roll, thus generating additional waste.
- ECF is manufactured in the USA, giving you peace of mind knowing we follow strict guidelines and often go above and beyond the EPA standards with our quality flooring underlay.
