Dinoflex: FloorScore® Certified

By Dinoflex Recycled Rubber Flooring | Jul 28,2022

Dinoflex PlayTiles®: Better – Whatever the Weather

When you work with Dinoflex you can breathe easy knowing our products are FloorScore® certified for indoor air quality (IAQ) by the Resilient Floor Covering Institute (RFCI).

What is FloorScore®?

Third parties such as the Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) validate whether products meet industry standards for indoor air quality and emissions. The RFCI and the SCS developed the first Floor Score certification program in 2005, and it has grown into a global standard architects, builders, and consumers have grown to look for and trust.

FloorScore® has been touted as “the most recognized indoor air quality (IAQ) certification standard for hard surface flooring materials, adhesives, and underlayments.” It also helps identify sustainable, environmentally friendly materials.

According to the RFCI, “The FloorScore® certification means healthier, cleaner air. And that means healthier humans.” Improving indoor air quality in the flooring industry is all about reducing emission levels created by specific volatile organic compounds (VOCs). FloorScore® IAQ Certified products have been tested for 35 specific VOCs, independently certified, and comply with VOC emissions criteria. A positive floor score indicates low VOC emissions.

FloorScore® certification helps companies achieve the following:

  • Adopt continuous improvement best practices.
  • Safeguard building occupants from indoor air pollutants.
  • Identify areas for improvement.

FloorScore® and Children

FloorScore® approved flooring products keep kids safe. Because children respire more quickly than adults, FloorScore® is especially important in buildings where children are frequently present, such as schools. As a result, FloorScore® is a key consideration for architects, designers, and administrators when making recommendations for educational flooring

FloorScore® and Dinoflex

Rubber is highly sustainable and an easily recyclable material. From the very beginning, we have been committed to producing recycled rubber flooring that is as sustainable in its production as it is effective in its application. Through our innovative approach to product development, we discovered consumers around the world generate more than one billion waste tires every year. Dinoflex has saved countless commercial tires from ending up in landfills or being burned by repurposing them into beautiful, durable, FloorScore® certified flooring solutions.

Dinoflex cares about its customers’ health as much as it cares about the environment. Dinoflex searches high and low for quality materials for our products, including our EPDM, which is considered to emit the lowest VOCs in the marketplace. These granules, which add color and variety to our durable and sustainable recycled rubber floors, contribute to our products’ FloorScore® certification.

Dinoflex offers a wide range of FloorScore® certified products for interior flooring and exterior surfacing solutions in commercial, institutional, sport, and hospitality environments. We would love to work with you on your next flooring project. contact us today!
