When you choose an eco-friendly wall covering for your business, you’re not only making the world a better place—you’re doing it without sacrificing style or quality!
For businesses concerned about their carbon footprint, such as those applying for LEED certification, SpeedPro offers eco-friendly wall-covering solutions.
Why Would A Business Choose Eco-Friendly Wall Coverings?
Eco-friendly wall coverings are an excellent choice for businesses that want to reduce their environmental impact. There are many benefits of using eco-friendly graphics in your business, such as:
They’re made from non-toxic, formaldehyde, phthalate and PVC-free materials that are safe for people and the environment. They don’t use vinyl but instead rely on substitutes.
They contain recycled materials so they’re better for the environment.
California Standards Compliant
They comply with California standards for indoor air quality, which means that any business willing to use eco-friendly wall coverings will be able to offer their customers a safer and healthier environment.
They meet the strict standards of having low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) in interior spaces, which helps reduce health risks caused by exposure to these harmful chemicals. This means they are often made with water-based inks instead of solvents and petroleum-based inks.
They are made from materials that comply with the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) credit qualifications, which are used to rate buildings for their environmental friendliness.
They may use a chlorine-free manufacturing process to help reduce harmful waste and greenhouse gas emissions.
They are fully breathable, which means no moisture buildup to protect against mold and mildew.
They use paper from trees that were harvested in a way that doesn’t harm the environment or people.
They are fire-resistant as they do not contain hazardous materials that may cause fires or explosions when exposed to heat sources.
Comparable to traditional wall-coverings
They offer the same benefits as standard wall coverings, such as durability, easy installation and high-quality printing.
How Does SpeedPro Make Eco-Friendly Wall & Floor Graphics?
SpeedPro carries several types of eco-friendly wall coverings.
Monadnock Envi® Wallgraphics Pre-Pasted
Envi Wallgraphics Media is a high-performance digital wallcovering that is PVC-free, pre-pasted and strippable. It’s made with all renewable resources and meets strict California 01350 standards for indoor air quality. That means it’s an excellent choice for green businesses and can even earn LEED credits! It has the same performance characteristics as vinyl without chemicals. The bright white finish creates beautiful, vibrant graphics.
It’s also FSC-certified, which means it was sourced responsibly from forests worldwide.
SynTac SpotOn it’s an ink-receptive self-adhesive PP film with a matte and dotted finish. It’s used together with Drytac Interlam EcoTex, an overlaminate film with a pebble texture.
When paired with Drytac Interlam EcoTex, it provides a two-part PVC-free floor graphic solution that’s easy to apply and is slip rated for safety.
Polar® PET 170
Polar® PET 170 is a PVC-free print media for indoor floor and wall graphics without the need for an overlaminate. It contains 40% internal industrial recycled content, so it’s just as good for the environment as it is for your walls. You can install Polar® PET 170 on floors for six months, or on vertical surfaces for up to five years.
It also comes in three different slip ratings and carries three certifications for sustainability.
Best Uses For Eco-Friendly Wall Coverings
You can use eco-friendly materials the same way you would any other regular wall covering, with the added benefit of doing a good deed for the planet.
They’re also good for your business. Many people prefer to buy from companies that minimize their environmental impact. You can easily promote your greener choices by adding a seal to your graphics (i.e. “this wall graphic is made from 40% recycled materials” or “this wall decal meets California 01350 standards for indoor air quality”).
A few places you can use eco-friendly graphics:
- Accent Walls
- Airport Terminals
- Directional Signage
- Entire Walls
- Floor Graphics
- Home Decor
- Interior Design
- Private Practices – Reception Area
- Retail Walls
- Temporary/Coming Soon Signs
