Green system, an eco-product in a progressive school

2020, August
Balmoral School is located in Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city on the North Island. The new flooring that has just been installed is completely in line with the school’s values.

An innovative school
Balmoral School welcomes children from 1 to 8 and aims to transmit socio-cultural values and didactic teaching through an alternative pedagogy based on “a wide and holistic vision of success”. Parents and children actively participate in this kind of experimential learning that emphasizes curiosity, challenge, critical thinking, creativity and joy of learning. The school’s philosophy can be summed up in these terms: "Valuing diversity and developing curious, confident and connected learners".

TecSOM goes back to school!
Thanks to our exclusive partner in New Zealand Advance Flooring Systems, 1,915 m² TecSOM GREEN SYSTEM found their place within the school in August 2020. The decision-makers selected 3 colour references in order to create pretty compositions on the floor: blue (0025), medium grey (0032) and black (145). These sober and not messy hues give the different spaces a felted and relaxing atmosphere, conducive to learning.

A choice in line with the school's values
TecSOM GREEN SYSTEM collection is a luxury loop pile carpet (LC1), heavy-duty product (use class 33), made from ECONYL yarn which is made entirely of recycled polyamide waste. Developed by our R&D laboratory, this eco-product peaks at 78.5% of regenerated material (combined with a small proportion of natural matter for backing flexibility), which saves our planet the negative effects of greenhouse gases caused by polyamide production.

A smart choice, fully in line with the pedagogical vision of this one of a kind school whose given mission is to form a future generation of responsible adults, more respectful of life.

Kia ora, Balmoral school !*
