EPD stands for ‘Environmental Product Declaration’
An EPD is an outcome or review of a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) conducted by a third party verified and compliant EPD scheme. Publicly disclosed and certified EPDs summarise all aspects of a products life cycle from cradle to end of life.
EPDs for the products of Quantum Flooring Solutions are not available. However, the company is committed to sustainable processes through its Environmental Management System backed by ISO 14001 accreditation. The products of Quantum Flooring Solutions incorporate the materials of aluminium, PVC and uPVC.
Aluminium (stair nosing carriers) can be recycled after use.
PVC and uPVC
Manufacturing waste is fully reclaimed and recycled
End of life material can be reclaimed or incinerated responsibly
Product life cycles are determined by location and degrees of foot traffic, but with good maintenance and cleaning will generally out last surrounding floorcoverings.
