Dunlop Flooring – Waste minimisation
Dunlop Flooring, VIC
At Dunlop Flooring, we make your comfort our business. As Australia’s largest provider of quality foam underlay, we have over 40 years experience improving flooring performance. A Dunlop underlay adds luxury and longevity to carpets and timber floors. It absorbs the impact on your floor, which actually extends carpet life. In addition, it provides outstanding sound and heat insulation with the unique, added benefit of long-term allergy control thanks to the anti microbial Ultra-Fresh. What’s more, a Dunlop underlay is environmentally friendly, achieving a maximum Green Star rating for building interiors set by the Green Building Council of Australia. As Australiaís largest recycler of polyurethane foam, Dunlop Flooring processes in excess of 10,000 tonnes of foam per year, thatís enough foam to fill the MCG which normally would be sent to landfill. Dunlop Flooring is committed to playing our part in reducing landfill and our overall impact on the environment. We recycle carpet underlay, and use recycled content within our underlay products. Dunlop underlays are made of 90% recycled materials and are 100% recyclable, which means choosing Dunlop helps leave a lighter footprint.
