It is exceptionally durable and safe for both your children and pets. There is a 6 year warranty on the artificial grass and it is not only confined to the garden. Duraturf Artificial Grass is popping up in areas where natural grass would not normally be seen.

Types Of Yarn – Polyethylene

With our monofilament and fibrillated polyethylene yarns our colour pigments are locked into the molecular structure of the fibre.  This ensures that we have permanent and uniform colour saturation.  The yarn is also softer with less abrasion characteristics and has realistic looking grass blades.
Our yarns are produced using global trends in colour, shape and texture. This ensures that our products are in line with world standards. All products except DIY Turf (polypropylene) are constructed using Polyethylene yarns.

Types Of Products – Non-Infill & Infill

Within the landscape range we have non infill products and infill products. Non infill products need to be rolled out, shaped and glued to the necessary substrate.

Infill products need to be rolled out, shaped and then a 80 % round 0.8mm – 1.6 mm Dry Silica sand applied and brushed into the carpet. The edges are then glued to the necessary substrate.

Pioneering green carpet manufacture
At Belgotex Floor's we recognise that our manufacturing processes impact on the environment. This is why we are committed to managing any negative environmental impacts created by our activities, products and services.

We are fully compliant with all applicable legislation as well as other requirements of environmentally responsible manufacture.

How does Belgotex more efficiently use energy & natural resources?
Belgotex's commitment to the environment extends well beyond the traditional concept of recycling.
It is both environmentally and economically responsible to carefully examine the use of any natural resource in all of manufacturing processes as well as the energy used to process these materials.
We continue to invest in new technology both as an enhancement to existing products and to develop new ones. Many of these enhancements result in less energy usage, while at the same time producing more units or products.

Our Objective
Belgotex Floor's recognises the impact of its activities, products and services on the environment and we are wholeheartedly committed to its conservation by managing any negative environmental impacts.

We at Belgotex are dedicated to continual environmental improvements through the minimisation of pollution, as well as the establishment of an ecologically sustainable environmental management system that is compliant to international standards.

One such standard, ISO 14001, is designed to help companies meet their environmental obligations, with the environment encompassing air, water, land, natural resources, fauna and flora, humans and their interrelation.

At Belgotex, we have pledged our compliance to this standard and all other applicable legislation and requirements.

 

Belgotex designs and develops floor coverings under the following sustainable guidelines:

  • Extending the life of an existing product through responsible manufacturing techniques and processes
  • Developing products that can be reworked in their existing form
  • Using raw materials that can be recycled at the end of their useful aesthetic life
  • Using recycled content whenever it is both economically and environmentally feasible

Waste Management
Belgotex Floorcoverings follow a Waste Management approach that encompasses the 3R's, which are:

3r

The order of the 3R's is important and we have chosen to improve our environmental performance by Reducing energy demand, use of natural resource & waste. Reuse scrap back into manufacturing and when possible gathering that waste from other processes. Finally; Recycle what cannot be used by finding a home for the waste in another product or process.
