What Is Reclaimed Flooring?Reclaimed flooring is flooring that has been manufactured using materials that were previously used somewhere else. By reusing these products, reclaimed flooring is extending their lifespan and keeping them out of landfills.
Reclaimed flooring might consist of wood from a previous hardwood floor, plastic from water bottles that were going to be thrown away, or crumb rubber from automotive tires that were headed to the dump. Those materials are broken down and then engineered in a new flooring product that will be used for years more.
Since reclaimed flooring reuses materials, it is an environmentally friendly choice. You can feel good about installing the flooring in your home, and many of these products may qualify for LEED points, making them a popular choice in construction projects.
4 Reclaimed Flooring OptionsAt Greatmats, we offer several quality reclaimed flooring products. With options suitable for commercial and residential use, you might find the perfect product for your upcoming project below.
1. Warehouse Floor Coin PVC Tile - Recycled PVC
The Warehouse Floor Coin PVC Tile is made entirely of recycled PVC content from reclaimed materials. It is a highly durable flooring choice, and it is strong enough to withstand vehicles and forklifts without buckling.
The PVC isn’t affected by heat, cold, or humidity, so it’s a versatile choice suitable for use in garages, warehouses, entrance ways, and show floors. It helps to slow bacteria growth and also resists mold and mildew.
Backed by a five-year limited manufacturer’s warranty, these tiles interlock together, so you can install them by yourself. There’s no need for adhesive, which helps to keep the installation price down.
2. Cottage Tour Laminate SPC Flooring - Reclaimed Wood Graphics
The Cottage Tour Laminate SPC Flooring offers a classic farmhouse style complete with reclaimed wood graphics. The rustic planks resemble barn boards that you would reclaim from an old barn or structure, but you’ll also enjoy the benefits of modern laminate.
The upper synthetic layer features those embossed graphics, and is placed on top of a middle layer with a tongue-and-groove interlocking design. That interlocking design means you can easily pop the planks together for a simplified installation process.
The lower layer of the planks features an underlayment that helps to reduce sound. There’s no need to purchase additional underlayment, which helps to keep the cost of the installation down.
These tiles are water resistant and can be vacuumed, swept, and dust mopped for easy maintenance. They feature a wear layer that enhances their durability, and since they are pet proof, they’re suitable for home and commercial use.
3. StayLock Tile Orange Peel Black - Recycled Plastic
The StayLock Tile Orange Peel Black is made entirely of recycled plastic. The tiles themselves are also recyclable, and Greatmats will accept them back when their life cycle is up and they need to be replaced.
Thanks to the tiles’ durability, that will be a long while. The tiles are waterproof and resistant to oils and acids, and they have a typical lifespan of 20 years.
These tiles also offer a 20-inch ASTM fall height rating. They offer valuable cushion and anti-fatigue properties, so they’re comfortable to stand and walk on.
These tiles are a popular choice for use in basements, home gyms, and other spaces where you’re looking for a combination of durability and comfort. They feature a pop-together design that makes for a quick and easy installation that you can complete entirely by yourself.
4. StayLock Tile Bump Top Black - Recycled Plastic
The StayLock Tile Bump Top Black is made entirely of recycled plastic material, making it an eco-friendly flooring choice. This reclaimed flooring also offers anti-fatigue properties, so it’s a popular choice for use in gyms and fitness rooms.
Highly durable, these tiles have an average lifespan of 20 years, making them one of the most durable products you can buy. They offer a cushion that feels similar to foam, but also offer the durability that you would often find in a rubber tile.
The tiles fit together securely, allowing for an easy installation that you can perform yourself. They are available with ramped borders, so you can perform an installation with clean, finished edges.
The tiles are waterproof and resistant to most acids and oils. They are suitable for installation over a variety of surfaces, including wood, tile, concrete, and even carpeting.
The tiles measure 12” long by 12” wide, so they’re conveniently sized for use in most rooms.
