Working with recycled materials
    • Classic tiles are equipped with BACKING SYSTEM, a backing made from 100% recycled vinyl.
    • ACOUSTIC tiles are equipped with a recycled polyamide fibre underlay, manufactured by us on our production site from cutting waste.
    • In 2021, we developed TEX, a 100% recycled fibre backing like an alternative for all of our collections.
    • We use ECONYL regenerated polyamide yarn to produce some of our collections.
    • Our products are packaged in recycled cardboard boxes.

 Developing clean and sparing technologies

    • We avoid the use of materials and additives which are hazardous to health and the environment, including volatile organic compounds and heavy metals.
 Using local resources
    • Our raw material suppliers are located within a radius of less than 300 km around our production site (apart from yarns, coming from Italy)
 Promoting a longer product life
    • Our products come with a 5-year warranty for France and a 10 years warranty for export.
 Designing easily recyclable products
    • We integrate reusing and recycling objectives from the design stage. The composition of our tiles is transparent, allowing easy traceability assessment.
  Evaluating products by qualified bodies
    • TecSOM fabric has a double AFAQ certification: ISO 9001 et ISO 14001 doublee certification
    • Our tiles are certified by LEED – BREEAM - EPD - A+ - M1 – HQE - CE

Since 2019, a waste management policy has been implemented at TecSOM production site

      • Uncoated needle punched carpet production waste is frayed and reused into acoustic underlay or worksite protective layer manufacturing.
      • Unused yarns are returned to our supplier who regenerates them.
      • Uncoated tufted layer waste is baled and returned for recycling.
      • Cardboard reel cones and cardboard waste are baled and send to paper mill for recycling.
      • Plastic packaging waste is baled and send for recycling.
      • Paper is sorted and then recycled by the recycler.
      • Vinyl backing cutting falls are regenerated by Tarkett.
      • Tiles from the end of production process, insufficient to fill a box, are set aside for sampling.
      • Rinsing water is recovered and reused.
      • Metals from the equipment (used parts, obsolete wiring) are sorted and then upgraded.

In 2021, we have divided by 3 the amount of Ordinary Industrial Waste (OIW) to be landfilled and multiplied by 5 reused wastes weight, compared to  the previous year.
