Indoor Air Quality
Breathe Easy. It’s a TORLYS Smart Floor.
The patented Uniclic® joint is a true advantage in all TORLYS Smart Floors: No chemical glues, no nails, and installation creates virtually no dust.
Our Smart Floors contain no harmful VOCs. Our floors also meet or exceed stringent standards as set out by California (Section 01350) indoor air quality standards – among the most stringent in the world.
TORLYS products contribute to LEED® credits in new construction, commercial interiors and existing buildings in three categories:
- materials and resources
- indoor environmental quality
- innovation and design process
“We reduce the amount of resources needed to make our products. We use recycled cork, leather and wood in our floors and offer floors that are FSC® Certified from responsibly managed forests. We even encourage customers to re-use or re-purpose their TORLYS floors. At TORLYS, we’re inspired by nature in our journey to create a smaller footprint. We urge you to rethink the way you look at flooring too.” ~ Peter Barretto, CEO and President
