Sustainability and recycling

We’re committed to sustainability in flooring.  We develop and manufacture our environmentally-friendly flooring using recycled and sustainably managed materials. We integrate dry adhesive technologies wherever we can to reduce pollution and waste and to lessen ecological impact.

Flooring with a world of difference

We’re dedicated to reducing flooring waste and use recycled materials wherever we can. We manufacture our specialised sports cradles and acoustic underlays from recycled vehicle tyres, which prevents thousands of worn tyres from going to landfill every year. To support sustainability, the wooden battens we use are from FSC sourced timber. As part of InstaGroup our environmental management system is certified ISO 14001.

Reducing landfill, improving lives

InstaFloor partners with organisations in other countries to recycle old vehicle tyres and reduce landfill. In South Africa, InstaFloor SA Pty works in partnership with Van Dyck: our commitment to sustainability is contributing to healthier lives, and preventing environmental problems caused by tyre dumps.

Recycling worn vehicle tyres in South Africa:

  • Prevents hazardous waste and reduces landfill and environmental damage.
  • Reduces deadly outbreaks of disease. Tyre dumps can become infested with rodents which spread illness. Discarded tyres also collect stagnant water, a breeding ground for mosquitoes and disease.
  • Stops tyre fires breaking out, which can lead to black smoke, polluted air, and contaminated water courses and soil.
  • Creates local employment.
  • Produces useful new environmentally-friendly products such as acoustic underlay and gym flooring.

Innovation for the environment

We are leading the way with our development of adhesive-free flooring and dry adhesive systems. These use no messy adhesives or noxious glues. They’re kinder to the environment, and support sustainability in flooring, making re-lifting and re-using floor coverings faster and easier.
