TORLYS and the Environment
Making a Difference One Floor at a Time
Creating environmentally responsible floors requires a passion for innovative design. At TORLYS, we look at how we can create a smaller footprint every step of the way. It starts with technology and ends with beautiful, long-lasting floors. Nature is our inspiration and we look at how we can preserve our heritage. We urge you to rethink the way you look at flooring.
To help you decide on the best environmentally responsible flooring,
Does the floor contain recycled materials?
Is the floor tested to conform to rigid air quality standards?
Are natural resources used efficiently?
How can the life of the floor be extended?
Can damaged planks be easily replaced?
Can the floor be re-used?
Does the flooring contribute to LEED® Green Building Rating System points?
At TORLYS we call this the power of “RETHINK”. Every floor we create must be re-thought from an environmental perspective.
With TORLYS hardwood, up to 30 times more flooring is produced from a single tree. All TORLYS floors meet the healthy home requirements set by CARB2 California Indoor Air Quality standards.
The Ultra-tight Uniclic® joint technology found in every TORLYS floor is reversible, enabling a floor to be moved up to 3 times under warranty. After your floor has lived a useful life in your home, you have the opportunity to donate the floor to Habitat for Humanity.
If you have a major mishap, no worries! The patented TORLYS Bulldog tool makes it easy to replace planks, even in the middle of the floor, without replacing the whole floor.
The Power of Cork Backing and Microban®
Cork backings provide a sustainable layer of warmth and comfort for your home. All TORLYS Cork, Leather, Artisan, Everest and Summit (except Summit Premier) Hardwood floors contain Microban® antimicrobial treatment in the attached cork underlay. Microban® works continuously to inhibit the growth of stain andodour causing bacteria, mold and mildew that candamage the attached underlay, providing protection where you need it.
All TORLYS floors contain no harmful VOC emissions, and exceed CARB2 California Indoor Air Quality standards, among the most stringent in the world.
