With our forests ever decreasing and precious resources being used for an increasing market in wood flooring, Impervia® Flooring is the sustainable option to reduce your impact on the environment, whilst creating a product that is durable enough for even the most high traffic areas.

The sustainable alternative to wood flooring

All our Impervia Flooring has a floorscore rating which has been tested by SGS.  FloorScore® is the most recognized indoor air quality (IAQ) certification standard for hard surface flooring materials, adhesives, and underlayment’s. Developed by SCS with the Resilient Floor Covering Institute (RFCI), a leading industry trade association of flooring manufacturers and suppliers, it qualifies for many green building schemes including LEED v4, WELL, BREEAM, CHPS, and Green Globes.

Environmental Product Declaration Explanation for Impervia

An Environmental Product Declaration, or EPD, is a document which transparently communicates the environmental performance or impact of any product or material over its lifetime.

Ryder International Limited T/A Impervia Flooring and The Solid Wood Flooring Company are working towards net zero by 2030. We have always been conscious of sustainability and reducing our impact on the environment.

Within the construction industry, EPDs support carbon emission reduction by making it possible to compare the impacts of different materials and products in order to select the most sustainable option.

Architects, engineers and designers are able to choose the most sustainable option for their project. Manufacturers are able to optimise the impact of their products and market their carbon transparency. Impervia meets the stringent Californian regulations and was assessed by SGS.

Transportation and distribution

We have a direct contract with Maersk who are aiming for ZERO carbon emissions by 2040. Currently they use green fuels for immediate carbon savings. You can see their statement here. For the UK we work with Brooks Transport and independent warehouse and logistics company to reduce carbon emissions.

End of Life treatment of Impervia

We expect Impervia flooring to last more than 30 years (30 year residential warranty) and in many cases it should last as long as any building. It can be taken up and re-laid after the initial installation many times if done correctly.

Use of Impervia

Impervia flooring does not need any other products for installation, just a flat secure subfloor. Impervia flooring is a single use flooring product that can be fitted anywhere as it is waterproof and fireproof. By having a single product on site for flooring it saves a lot of Co2 emission not only on transport but also on the impact of producing and delivering adhesives, underlays and downtime on installation.
