COBA Flooring is pleased to be a supporting an ambitious environmental project through sales of its Premier range of entrance matting systems during 2015. The Leicestershire based entrance matting manufacturer has launched its own campaign called the ‘Forest Floor Initiative’ in support of The National Forest Project, helping to transform 200 square miles of land in the heart of England.
For every 100m2 of Premier entrance matting sold in 2015, COBA Flooring will be planting a tree in The National Forest, a colossal project that spans three counties: Leicestershire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire. The aim is to link the ancient Forests of Charnwood with Needwood Forest, and in doing so, help to create beautiful landscape for families and wildlife to enjoy for many years to come.
“We are delighted to be showing our support for the National Forest Project. To do this through sales of our Premier entrance matting range seems the perfect fit, given its environmental credentials. As a company, we have ISO 14001 registration and we are committed to our environmental management systems, which also includes reducing our carbon footprint,” says COBA Flooring’s Sales Director, Chris Stanley.
The project, being in the heart of the Midlands, is also local to COBA Flooring’s UK head office and manufacturing facility.
There are four options within COBA’s Premier range of entrance matting – an interlocking tile system. Premier Plus and Premier Track are PVC tiles with carpet inserts (80% recycled materials) while Premier Grip is manufactured from 100% recycled PVC. Premier Surface, comprising a recycled PVC base tile and hard wearing nylon carpet insert, is the newest addition and is the ideal heavy duty solution for areas that do not have a recessed matwell.
