The ECO range of products from Amber Tiles is designed for home renovators looking to reduce their environmental impact or support the use of recycled materials within their home.
Amber’s ECO collections cater to environmentally-conscious renovators with a wide range of options to suit any home and personal style.
Amber’s tile specialist, Kate Lane emphasises the importance of providing environment-friendly products to the Australian market, given the negative perception often associated with building or renovating a home and the generation of waste products.
Amber’s ECO collections consist of products produced using eco-friendly technologies or safe, raw materials and have a low environmental impact.
Freestone ECO Retaining Wall System
Freestone ECO is the latest product in Amber’s retaining walls. A sustainable DIY vertical retaining wall manufactured with up to 40% recycled glass aggregate, the Freestone ECO showcases a unique, smooth-surface finish that shimmers in the light and is available in three colours with bullnose or square-edge capping to accommodate every outdoor design and landscaping requirement.
Phil Thurlow, Managing Director of Freestone ECO explains that the environmental benefits of the Freestone ECO retaining wall system are extensive. With the replacement of naturally-resourced aggregates such as sand and metal dust in the manufacturing process by a recycled landfill product, there is a 40% decrease in natural resources used.
Also, the cementitious value of the finely-crushed recycled glass reduces cement usage by 10%, automatically reducing CO2 emissions while still achieving excellent product strength and quality.
Italian-Made Tiles and Pavers
Made in Italy using high quality materials and eco-friendly technologies, Amber’s new Atelier and Sunrock collections combine the latest in European trends with the durable nature of porcelain. Perfect for use indoors and out, the Atelier and Sunrock collections add sophistication and elegance to any home environment.
The Atelier and Sunrock collections have received the international EcoLabel, which indicates that the entire manufacturing process has low environmental impact and uses environmentally-sound technology.
Mosaic Resort Collection
Amber’s Resort collection allows renovators to create their dream water oasis using environmentally-sensitive materials. Made from 100% recycled glass, the 25x25mm glass mosaics are available in nine bright colours to suit any pool design.
The production process and materials used within the Resort collection help create environment-friendly mosaics. Phil Miraglia, Amber’s pool mosaic specialist explains that the advanced technologies used in the production of the mosaics focus on minimising the overall environmental impact. The 100% post-consumer recycled glass used in the production process further reduces the consumption of energy by 25% and produces zero emissions.
