A Sustainable Manufacturing Process: Silicone uses readily available materials (primarily silica sand) in a manufacturing process that is continuous and self-contained. Within this process, only useful products emerge from the cycle. During the weaving process, material is used extremely efficiently with minimal waste.
Completely Inert Material: Different to more common PVC or Neoprene mats, Shore Rugs do not release any toxic fumes both during the manufacturing process or their long product lifespan. If disposed of at a landfill for incineration, silicone, unlike petroleum-based plastics and rubbers, is converted back into inorganic, harmless ingredients: amorphous silica, carbon dioxide, and water vapor.
No Pollutants: Thanks to their thick open weave structure and unique silicone material, Shore Rugs do not stain and can be cleaned with cold water. In this way, they are far more environmentally friendly than conventional fiber-based rugs, which often require expensive and polluting cleaning detergents which may be harmful to both human skin as well as the environment.
Economical Maintenance: Shore Rugs do not stain, are exceedingly easy to clean, and require minimal care as they are extremely durable and resilient. They can be left outside in direct sunlight, extreme heat, and freezing cold. As opposed to conventional fiber-based rugs which often require specialist and expensive cleaning products and services, Shore Rugs provide a far easier and more economical solution as they can easily be vacuumed, rinsed or hosed off with water, or even power washed with cold water.
Recyclable: We offer a free recycling program and will arrange the free return delivery of every Shore Rug to be fully recycled. Please contact us for more information.
