Moisture Control

EcoLogix® cushion backing is a human-centered solution that works hard for your space.

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 with no minimums.

Features and Benefits

EcoLogix® is a breathable backing that allows moisture to rise and evaporate through the seams of the tile, alleviating most slab-based moisture concerns.

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.

EcoLogix® backing is NSF 140 Platinum certified and uses 100% post-consumer recycled PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) plastic bottles to help consume waste plastics into a beautiful solution.

Constructed for underfoot comfort, the cushion backing provides support with unmatched durability and ergonomic benefits.

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.
