What began as a concept over a year ago, has become the best innovation in rubber flooring the market has seen in decades. Available in three profiles: Random, Stripe and Crackle. All patterns are available with the added benefits that can be found only in rubber flooring products – inherent slip resistance, comfort under foot, sound deadening qualities, and enhanced ROI in comparison to other flooring options and their required maintenance procedures.
Roppe Corporation is one of the nation’s leading suppliers of rubber and vinyl flooring products and accessories, producing a full line of products including rubber and vinyl wall base, stair treads and floor tile.
Roppe Corporation is proud to introduce IMPACT, their rubber products recycling program. As a leader of product innovation, quality and color options in the commercial flooring products industry, Roppe has done extensive research to put together a program that meets the strictest requirements for sustainability.
Roppe’s rubber flooring products can be found in many of our oldest schools, churches, hotels, healthcare facilities, office buildings and more across the nation. At the point that the facility decides to renovate the space and replace rubber products, it can easily be recycled within the Roppe’s IMPACT Recycling program that encourages building professionals – designers, contractors and owners – to Rethink + Reuse + Recycle = Responsibility. This environmentally-friendly recycling program will hopefully encourage the use of rubber flooring products among designers who have not considered rubber in the past due to the environmental concerns at the end of the products life cycle
The following products have been approved to be recycled with this vendor: Pinnacle Rubber Base, AlphaBase®, BaseMates®, Pinnacle Plus Wall Base, Rubber Corner Blocks, Dimensions Rubber Tile, Smooth and Marbleized Rubber Tile, Raised Design Rubber Tile and Tread, SafeTcork® Rubber Tile and Tread, Fiesta® Rubber Tile and Tread, SafeTcork® Fiesta® Rubber Tile and Tread, Designer’s Choice® Rubber Tile, Spike/Skate Resistant Tile, Recoil Fitness Flooring, Tuflex® Recycled Rubber Tile and Rubber Accessories.
Roppe joined the USGBC in 2003 and have since become a leader in the commercial flooring industry, pioneering many green product initiatives that come standard in 23 of our product brands every day without sacrificing color choices, stock availability or incurring added costs. We continue to look at our manufacturing processes and work toward creating healthier work environments that produce sustainable products for use in healthcare, education, hospitality, and commercial interiors. This program is another example of Roppe’s dedication to environmental responsibility that is designed to simplify and encourage others within the industry to respect our environment and protect our natural resources.
