Lifecycle Assessment

There is a dramatic difference between types of floor covering available on the market. When choosing flooring products it is important to take in to account the full impact they have on the environment.

Luxury Vinyl Tiles Perform Well

A life cycle assessment (LCA) is a mechanism for evaluating the environmental impact of both products and processes. By understanding the impacts of different parts of a product's life cycle we can target specific areas to reduce their effect on the environment. You can use LCA to compare products on a like for like basis as a standard set of criteria are used, that include:

  •  Indoor air quality
  •  Human health
  •  Water intake
  •  Ozone pollution
  •  Fossil fuel depletion

Luxury Vinyl Tiles perform relatively well against other forms of floor coverings due to their low impact on the environment.
