Eco resilient flooring (ERF), is certified eco friendly. It has the Singapore Green Label certification which requires stringent standards to achieve it. Two of the standard are healthy indoor air quality and also the material composite of the product. Some resilient flooring products in Singapore may not be certified eco friendly mainly because of their material composite. Many of these resilient flooring products may have seemingly ‘eco friendly certifications’, however if the home owner can take a closer look, the resilient flooring products suppliers who got their ‘eco friendly certifications’ are not because of the material composite of the products but because the manufacturing process of the products was done in an environmentally fashion.
Eco resilient flooring (ERF) is also a waterproof flooring hence making it highly recommended for areas such as the kitchen, entrances near the bathrooms or the sanitary area. If your home ‘chef’ does a lot of cooking at home, you also need not worry as the waterproof properties of Eco Resilient Flooring (ERF) make it easy to clean and wash. Its waterproof properties therefore make it a strong substitute to conventional wood flooring and laminate flooring.
Eco resilient flooring (ERF) is also highly slip resistant. Therefore, such flooring helps to enhance safety at home by reducing the probability of slipping accidents. This is so important especially if your home has kids running around or elderly parents.

Eco resilient flooring (ERF) has a highly scratch resistant 0.5 mm wear layer and a coating (turf shield) which enhances the lifespan of the flooring through wear and tear.
