Moreover, Nesite manufactures its raised floor with recycled and recyclabel materials certfied by accredited authorities:
• the chipboard used by Nesite is certified by the FOREST STEWARDSHIP COUNCIL for 98% of the product and therefore, with 1% of the aluminum foil applied on the surfaces and 1% of the PVC edge trim, allows to reach 30% of pre-consumer recycled content and 70% of post-consumer recycled content.
• the calcium sulphate is made of 90% -99.9% recycled products and meets perfectly the sanitary and ecological standards of the green buildings.
The use of calcium sulphate is particularly recommended for the ecological and economic aspect because are not employed the natural resources and the material can be reused.
• twin floor is entirely made of natural and environmentally friendly materials, with a high percentage of “pre-consumer” recycled material
In the “outdoor version”, it also contributes to reducing the “heat island” effect (difference in thermal gradient between urban and extra-urban areas) to minimize the impact on the microclimate and the habitat. All this is possible thanks to the low values of solar reflectance coefficient.
Most of the glue used in the production process is water based and therefore contains a very low or zero VOC amount.
