The more society learns about the environment, the more we are realizing how important each individual carbon footprint really is. We are starting to understand the need for everyone to do his or her own part to ensure we have quality, natural resources in the future. Recycling is one of the best things we can do to conserve and lower waste. That is why here at Eco Green Equipment, we are constantly looking for new ways to use recycled tires. Here are the latest uses for recycled tires in flooring: Carpet: Recycled tire carpet is as versatile as it is environmentally friendly. Made from 100% recycled tires, this carpet is designed to be used industrially in areas of high traffic. The flooring comes in tiles and is buffed to a chenille finish that outlasts many other industrial carpet products. It is also non-slip making it a perfect entrance to any building located in areas of precipitation. Uses for this flooring include:

  • Warm rooms for schools
  • Entrance to office buildings
  • Gyms
  • Industrial buildings
  • Offices
  • Restaurants
  • Nursing Homes
  • Assisted Living Centers
  • Porches of homes
  • Work Garages

Outdoor Tile: Recycled tires are great for sports flooring and industrial spaces, but what if you like the idea of being eco friendly while still keeping your home looking beautiful? Outdoor tiles were created to be an aesthetically pleasing, green option to concrete or brick. They have tiles made to look like interlocking bricks as well as smooth tiles and they come in a variety of colors. They are noise reducing, slip resistant and much easier on your joints than concrete, brick or asphalt. They are also long lasting and stain resistant. They don’t require any adhesive upon installation, making them a much easier project than having cement or concrete laid. What’s more, because of the ease of installation, you can do it yourself instead of having to hire someone. Uses for this flooring include:

  • Hospitals
  • Schools
  • Senior Centers
  • Office Buildings
  • Home Gardens
  • Pool Decks
  • Golf Courses
  • Parks
  • Side walks
  • Dog Runs

Sport Flooring: Boasting a wide variety of uses, this is the flooring of the future. The perfect combination of style and eco friendliness, this flooring comes in dozens of colors and is just as resistant and any other sport floor. As such, it is resistant to baseball cleats, barbells, ice skates, golf spikes, and more. It is also easy on joints and backs because it absorbs most of the shock of your body. Additionally, it muffles the noise of foot traffic in busy areas. They are made in interlocking tiles and in 48” roles. Uses for this flooring include:

  • Weight rooms
  • Ice rinks
  • Dressing and locker rooms
  • Pro Shops
  • Daycare Centers
  • Fitness centers
  • In home gyms
  • Stadium Tunnels
  • Correctional Facilities
  • Assembly and Production Areas
  • Physical Therapy Rooms
