EcoLogix® carpet tile cushion backing system is Cradle to Cradle Certified® Bronze. A sustainable alternative to urethane and PVC cushion backing systems, EcoLogix® tile is made with 100% post-consumer recycled content, each square yard contains approximately 56 recycled PET plastic bottles. With four times better lamination strength, it resists compression providing better long-term comfort and support and adding enhanced ergonomic benefits.
EcoLogix tile is a breathable backing that allows moisture to rise and evaporate through the seams of the tile, alleviating most slab-based moisture concerns. Additionally, EcoLogix tile improves acoustics, both floor-to-floor and in-room sound absorption, versus standard carpet tile and hard surface flooring. EcoLogix tile is an approved backing option available on 90% of Shaw Contract carpet tile styles (no overages, 150 yard minimum).

Designed and assessed for environmental
and social performance across five critical
sustainability categories: material health, material reuse, renewable energy and carbon management, water stewardship, and social fairness.
Sound can negatively impact building
occupants—that is why EcoLogix® tile
was designed to decrease floor to floor
impact sound (IIC ratings) and absorb
in-room sound (SAA ratings) more than
standard carpet tile and hard surfaces.
People spend 90% of their time indoors,
making these environments critical to our
wellbeing. EcoLogix® is Green Label Plus (GLP) Certified, meeting the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) indoor air quality standards for low emitting products.
