Green is Good at Surface Design Show


Wind turbines. Ground source heat pumpsSolar panels. Sustainability is often seen as large scale. But at Surface  Design Show, exhibitors are proving how surfacing products can play a valuable  part in the bigger green picture.

From hand made recycled products to green  credentials for a world leading manufacturer, responsible environmental management  to a reduced transport footprint, surfacing products highlight how  sustainability can be incorporated into the most practical and innovative of  design solutions.

Flexstone from Solus  Ceramics is not only a unique, flexible and bendy wall tile that  can be applied to flat and curved surfaces, but weighing in at about 2kg per m2,  it’s one of the lightest options available to transport.
