Taking Steps Towards A Greener Future, On Green Flooring

Cape Town-based Evalution Flooring is the first and only company in Africa to have achieved Global GreenTag certification on 3 ranges of their innovative vinyl tiles.

The certified AMTICO SPACIA and AMTICO SPACIA Acoustic vinyl tiles from Evalution Flooring include various concrete, abstract and stone-look luxury vinyl tiles which offer a modern alternative to more conventional porcelain and ceramics.

Leading the way in luxury flooring, Cape Town-based Evalution Flooring, which prioritises the environment without sacrificing on style, is the first and only company in Africa to have achieved Global GreenTag certification on 3 ranges of their innovative vinyl tiles.

The Global GreenTag is one of the most robust and widely recognised ecolabels in the world, trusted by thousands of buyers, hundreds of companies and numerous green building councils, certification bodies and governments.  In particular, the GBCSA in South Africa, of which Evalution Flooring is a member of.

Evalution Flooring founder, Eva Kaiser says, “The recent international recognition, and corresponding GreenTag Certification, of our Amtico LVT Flooring products – AMTICO FIRST, AMTICO SPACIA and AMTICO SPACIA Acoustic – is tremendous validation for the brand and our future in the green building arena.”

“Over the last 10 to 15 years, there has been a growing focus on green building due to greater awareness of the impact of unsustainable practices and the carbon emissions of the global building sector. SA already has 380 certified green buildings – a number which keeps expanding year-on-year,” she explains.

For over a decade, Evalution Flooring has serviced the corporate, commercial and residential markets, building on its reputation of delivering quality tiles, vinyl and mosaics.

The GreenTag certified Amtico First wood-look luxury vinyl tiles – suitable for residential and light commercial use – has a 0.3mm wear layer and offers an alternative to wooden flooring and various looks of ceramic and porcelain tiles which are available in 54 designs ranging from wood, stone and abstract looks.

One of Evalution’s largest collections, comprising 104 designs and 29 new products to choose from, the certified AMTICO SPACIA and AMTICO SPACIA Acoustic vinyl tiles are suitable for residential, light commercial and heavy commercial buildings. The range also includes various concrete, abstract and stone-look luxury vinyl tiles which offer a modern alternative to more conventional porcelain and ceramics. By adding the 1mm Acoustic backing to the Spacia range, this vinyl offers comfort underfoot and sound impact reduction of up to 18dB which is the perfect alternative to carpets.

Eva says, “As the only commercial seller of the GreenTag certified products, we are now the supplier of choice for South African, and African, businesses looking to boost their green status.”

“We believe that every business can do their bit to help save the planet and it can be as simple as choosing the right partners when embarking on a green building journey,” she concludes.
