Designer Contracts has been named an ‘Eco Contractor’ by a leading UK flooring manufacturer.

The company, the UK’s largest contract flooring provider, has received a Gold Award from eco-engineered underlay specialists Texfelt in recognition of an outstanding environmental achievement – successfully preventing over 500,000 plastic bottles from polluting the world’s oceans.

Made from plastic bottles, Spring Bond is a sustainable alternative to PU foam, felt and rubber underlay. Designer Contracts has worked hard to promote the benefits to customers and, in doing so, saved over half a million plastic bottles from landfill.

Said Designer Contracts md, Peter Kelsey: “We’re really pleased to receive this award. Since we started offering Spring Bond to our customers almost a year ago, there has been a surge in demand for more eco-friendly flooring options – something which housebuyers are more conscious about including within their home.

“We worked closely with the manufacturer of Spring Bond, Texfelt to develop the exclusive 7mm and 9mm depth product for the new build market and we really feel it’s a great alternative to other conventional underlay options. There’s no compromise on comfort either, which makes it a great all-rounder within the home.”

Designer Contracts operates across 15 regional outlets throughout the UK and is now fully compliant with the UK government guidelines on managing the risk of Covid 19 – and has been certified as a ‘Covid Safe’ employer.
