June 16, 2015 – Shaw Contract Group has announced a new innovation in resilient flooring with the introduction of EcoWorx resilient. Designed with future lifecycles in mind, EcoWorx resilient is Cradle to CradleCM v3.1 Bronze certified and offers a high performance vinyl alternative for commercial resilient flooring applications.
“By introducing a sustainable product that led the market in design, performance, materials chemistry and service, Shaw Industries set a new industry standard with EcoWorx carpet tile. We are now changing the hard surface category with EcoWorx resilient,” said Tim Baucom, Vice President of Shaw Commercial.
A sustainable resilient flooring solution, these products are phthalate- and PVC-free and offer guaranteed reclamation and recycling at end of life. Engineered to withstand the demands of intense-use environments, EcoWorx resilient features a wear layer to protect against scratches, scuffs and stains, and products are backed with lifetime warranties.
“Adding EcoWorx resilient to our wide range of hard surface product offerings is a result of listening to the market and providing new solutions that meet changing customer requirements,” said Baucom. “By diversifying our product line, customers have more choice, and we are better prepared to respond to changing market needs in the future.”
EcoWorx resilient products will be available later this year. Select styles were showcased at The NeoCon World’s Trade Fair in Chicago June 15-17, 2015.
