Waste Diverted, Style Converted.
BottleFloor, a new hybrid flooring made from post-consumer PET bottles, is the first Shaw Contract collection to launch on the flooring platform, ReWorxTM.
This hybrid flooring solution combines the durability of a hard surface with the comfort of a soft surface. A 100% PET product that can be reused and recycled back into itself, BottleFloor merges innovation in product performance, materiality and circularity.
Designed With the End in Mind Made with 100% PET fiber, BottleFloor incorporates an average of 64 recycled post-consumer plastic bottles per square yard and is fully recyclable back into new ReWorxTM at the end of its first life on the floor.
Closing the Loop on Material Innovation
With a high-recycled content from single-use plastic bottles, BottleFloor can be recycled back into itself. We believe this is another next step, albeit a revolutionary one, on our journey to practice a regenerative closed-loop approach to sustainability
A Hybrid Innovation For All Spaces
BottleFloor combines the visual and underfoot comfort of a soft surface with hard surface durability, creating a unique hybrid innovation for high-performance environments.
Performs with Static and Rolling Loads The high PSI tolerance of the product enhances resistance to indentation in areas with heavy static and rolling loads, per ASTM test methods. It offers optimum traction and slip resistance for the prevention of fatigue and injuries.
Stain Resistance ReWorxTM high-performance PET construction is inherently stain resistant.
Superior Durability The severe traffic tolerance rating of ReWorxTM provides enhanced durability in high-traffic areas.
15-Year Warranty* Covers abrasive wear, static protection, stain, colorfastness to light and atmospheric contaminants, delamination, dimensional stability, and telegraphing.
Feels Good to Do Good
A 100% PET product that can be reused and recycled back into itself, BottleFloor merges innovation in product performance, materiality and circularity.
Material Innovation ReWorxTM continues Shaw Industries’ commitment to innovative sustainable solutions. Its unique multi-layer composite is constructed of PET from top to bottom. With high-recycled content from single-use plastic bottles, ReWorxTM can be recycled back into itself.
Reducing Plastic Waste Stream One of the most pressing environmental issues today is that of plastic pollution. ReWorxTM uses post-consumer recycled PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) plastic to help consume waste plastics into a beautiful solution.
