BASF’s MasterTop polyurethane resin flooring range is now A+ listed for different specifications in the Building Research Establishment (BRE)’s Green Guide.
BREEAM assessment measures building materials’ environmental impact across their entire life cycle, from cradle to grave. MasterTop’s 1300 series Green Guide-rated systems are among the few flooring options available that contribute to credits for BREEAM environmental assessment for buildings.
According to FeRFA, the UK’s resin flooring association, BREEAM resin flooring systems vary widely regarding the materials used, types available and benefits provided. As a result, resin systems are often designed to provide a specification that is unique to a project. This diversity can make gaining BREEAM assessment a challenge, as ratings are generally generic in nature.
Robert Bentley of BASF said: “Architects and building owners are keen to achieve the best possible score for their BREEAM building certification. Working with BRE to achieve environmental product profiles, we went through an intensive certification process over nine months.
"We’re delighted with the outcome, which places the majority of installations of our flooring in different environments in the A+ bracket, making them a valuable addition to any building.”
