Shaw Contract Introduces Collection of Sustainable Flooring

Cartersville, GA, June 22, 2018-Shaw Contract introduces a new product category, PET Resilient, made from 40% post-consumer PET. The shift to PVC-free resilient flooring was prevalent at Neocon.

In an effort to continue its advancements in sustainability, Shaw Contract has put materiality at the forefront, producing a product with high performance attributes to make a positive impact on the built environment.

Combined with the agility of digital printing methods, this hard surface collection offers designers the ability to make choices about material, pattern, color and sustainability from one unique portfolio of products.

Environmental highlights of this product line include: 16 recycled bottles per square foot, 64 recycled bottles per plank, and no plasticizers, chlorine, or PVC.

Performance attributes include: a top coat that provides scratch and dent resistance, double the dimensional stability of standard resilient flooring, 1500 PSI, excellent sound abatement, a 5mm thickness (no transitions needed between PET resilient and most carpet tile), no telegraphing, and the ability to be installed on a subfloor with high moisture content with the use of proper adhesives.
