Sustainability

NESITE is an environmentally friendly Company which manufactures its raised floor with recycled and recyclable materials certified by accredited authorities.

Our main raw material components are

  • high density chipboard
  • calcium sulphate gypsum base
  • the inert material used for Twin Floor.

The high density chipboard used by Nesite is a FOREST STEWARDSHIP COUNCIL certified core for 98% of the product and therefore, together with the 1% of the aluminum foil applied on the surface and the 1% of PVC edge banding, it allows the product to reach a 30% pre-consumer recycled content and a 70% post-consumer recycled content.

Nesite calcium sulphate is made of 90%-99,9% recycling products and fully satisfies the health and hygiene requirements of today’s biological construction industry. The use of calcium sulphate is recommended for the ecological and economical aspect, as natural resources shouldn’t be exploited and the material can be reused.

The Twin floor is entirely composed of natural and environmentally friendly materials, with a high percentage of “pre-consumer”recycled material; in its outdoor version also helps to reduce the “heat island” (thermal gradient difference between urban and suburban areas) to minimize impact on microclimate and habitat. All this is due to the low values of solar reflectance coefficient and to the plenum created between the raised floor and the slab.

Most of the glue used in the manufacturing process is water based adhesives and therefore has very low or nil VOC.
