QUICK•STEP® HAS ALWAYS BEEN A GREEN CHOICE
We’re constantly seeking new ways to recycle, reduce, reuse, recover and renew at every step of the manufacturing process. Our U.S.-produced laminate boards are made of 74% preconsumer recycled wood fibers and chips from sustainable sources. Not one exotic tree is harvested to create our beautiful exotic floors. Rather than sent to the landfill, rejected products are integrated into our chipboard factory or reused by third-party manufacturers. Our patented locking system eliminates the introduction of VOCs typically associated with installation adhesives. And all Quick•Step® floors are California 93120 Phase 2 compliant for formaldehyde emissions and comply with all CARB (California Air Resource Board) requirements. When you’re ready for a change, it’s easy to unclick, remove and reuse our floors somewhere else or donate them to your favorite charity... [learn more]
