Pronounced as “I-Owe-Back” to the environment, one of our objectives was to develop a flooring installation technology that eliminated flooring waste.
And as our technology portfolio has expanded, sustainability has always been fundamental to what we do, from ensuring our technologies contain recycled components wherever possible, to developing Ezy-Warm Underfloor Heating that can be powered by renewable energy sources.
All IOBAC products come with our Reuse Promise giving peace of mind that the flooring specified today can go on to have another life.
With our Promise, you can trust that our products meet at least 3 out of 5 criteria that support a circular future for floor coverings.
And our product development programme is focused on improving that even further.
We are diligent in ensuring that our technologies include recycled materials and are recyclable wherever possible, with examples including:
- Ezy-Install Underlay which is made from recycled rubber tyres
- High Grab resin coating which is manufactured from plant-based renewable castor oil
- Our metal additives are made from recycled scrap iron
- MagTabs which can be re-used or recycled after use
Customer Inspired Innovation
We innovate through understanding market needs and are often approached for help to improve current processes.
Both our fixing systems were as a result of this, and use Dual-Grip technology applied to very different problems.
Ezy-Rug Gripper Kits use Dual-Grip technology to stop rugs moving, preventing slips and protecting floors, and were created for a major hotel chain.
They hold rugs securely, yet lift-up cleanly for damage-free floors and easy repositionable access.
Using Dual-Grip technology means tiles hold fast, yet can easily be removed for access to services using a suction cup.
We are passionate about open innovation and often work in close collaboration with other technology experts to facilitate the best solution.
Pronounced as “I-Owe-Back” to the environment, our company was founded on the belief that there had to be a better way to manage flooring throughout its life-cycle.
We set out to develop technologies that facilitate flooring reuse, eliminate flooring landfill waste and protect valuable building assets.
We combine the latest in additive chemistry with expertise in magnetic science to build a rich portfolio of solutions.
