Did you know Interface is not only the world’s largest carpet tile manufacturer, but also an environmental pioneer? The company began Mission Zero, its journey to become a fully sustainable manufacturer with zero negative impact, in 1996 – and has recently announced several exciting steps toward this goal.
NyloDeck® is prepared from recycled nylon carpet fiber bonded by a VOC-free resin and contains no wood or PVC. The strength of the carpet fibers is key to making NyloDeck® one of the strongest and durable, yet lightweight, decking materials available. It also happens to be impermeable to moisture, which also makes it resistant to mold, mildew, stains, and swelling. Termites don’t like it either.
NyloDeck® is dyed all the way through the board and then embossed with a natural looking three-dimensional finish. This process allows it to be made in a variety of colors with unique grains similar to those found in natural wood. However, these boards won’t fade or splinter over time and are scratch-resistant.
