Breathe Easy

It's a TORLYS Floor.

At TORLYS, we understand that protecting our environment is more important today than ever before. As a CGBC member, we work hard to make our floors as sustainable as possible, offering you floors that you can be proud of. Explore our efforts below.

Reduced Footprint Mandate

TORLYS follows a Reduced Footprint Mandate that includes:

  • Meeting or exceeding the world’s strictest Indoor Air Quality standards
  • Contributing to LEED® certification
  • Adhering to environmental principles of reduce, reuse and renew

 

Indoor Air Quality

TORLYS floors are CARB compliant, either meet or exceed California’s indoor air quality standards (Section 01350) – among the most stringent set standards in the world – and contain no harmful VOCs, and virtually all of our vinyl and laminate floors are FloorScore® certified.

LEED® Certification

TORLYS products contribute to LEED® credits in new construction, commercial interiors and existing buildings in three categories:

  1. Materials and resources
  2. Indoor environmental quality
  3. Innovation and design process

Reduce

At TORLYS, we choose recycled resources to create long-lasting floors.

Take a look at the recycled resources used in most TORLYS Smart Floors:

  • Our cork floors and attached CorkPlus BLUE underlay come from 100% recycled cork.
  • We use 100% recycled leather for our leather floors, a process that which reclaims and recycles leather from belts, purses, jackets, and shoes.
  • Our laminate floors contain up to 70% recycled wood, plus, their extremely durable construction is long-lasting, requiring less replacement and less material in the long run.

Did you know? All of our Smart Hardwood floors are designed to use fewer materials. That means we produce 30 times more hardwood flooring from a single tree than 3/4” solid hardwood.

Reuse

We’ve created our products to be easily reusable, resulting in less production and more money in your pocket.

Reuse your TORLYS Smart Floors with these innovations:

  • The TORLYS Bulldog Easy Plank Replacer is a unique innovation that is exclusive to TORLYS and allows you to replace a single damaged plank with ease.
  • The Uniclic® joint eliminates the need for glue or nails. For residential installations, the entire floor can be reused up to three times without harming the joint or the adjoining surfaces. See our warranty for details.

Renew

Cork, one of our leading products, is a renewable wood source. Our cork floors are made without cutting down any cork oak trees or damaging forests. Choose our TORLYS Smart Cork or TORLYS CorkWood floors for an eco-friendly flooring option.

Here are some other products and features that help you renew your TORLYS floors, extending their life for years:

  • Uniclic® joints that fit with industry-leading tightness and allow for easy replacement with the Bulldog Tool.
  • Our TORLYS Natural Glow® Eco-Friendly Cleaning Kit is biodegradable, doesn’t contain any VOCs, and is fragrance-free.
  • TORLYS Touch up Kits for minor scratches.

For a renewable hardwood option, consider our TORLYS SuperSolid Hardwood collection. All lines are guaranteed to be re-sandable up to four times.

FSC® Certified Flooring

All TORLYS Cork Floors are Forest Stewardship Council® certified, ensuring the wood used in the manufacturing of these floors comes from responsibly managed forests.
