How green is your home

With the emphasis firmly on protecting our environment, it makes sense to look at the products that you use in your home.


This month we take a look at how Belgotex Floorcoverings have taken the decision to become a committed, environmentally friendly organisation by taking the first steps on what has become affectionately known as their ‘Green Journey’

Did you know that you can help the planet by favouring products and services from companies that are green compliant?

Belgotex Floorcoverings has been a driving force in the South African floorcovering industry for the past 22 years. As a leader in floorcoverings, Belgotex recognise that their manufacturing processes impact on the environment. This is why they are committed to managing any negative environmental impacts created by their activities, products and services.





With a goal of establishing an ISO 14001 compliant Environmental Management System the focus is on continual environmental improvements aimed at minimising pollution and developing an ecologically sustainable waste management system, and Belgotex Floorcoverings are fully compliant with all applicable legislation as well as other requirements of environmentally responsible manufacture.

When you choose a floor covering from the Belgotex fabulous range of carpets, cushioned vinyls and BerryFloor wood laminates, you can be sure that it has been produced by a responsible manufacturer committed to eco-friendly production practice.

Some people still think carpeting is expensive. That’s simply not true any more. Modern fibres make a carpet from Belgotex Carpets your most affordable and stylish choice of floorcovering.

Warmth underfoot

Belgotex Carpets floorcovering provides superb thermal insulation. Carpeting not only feels warmer underfoot, but in fact retains 10% more ambient heat.

Comfort above

Belgotex Carpets floorcoverings also soaks up noise, thereby providing a more relaxed ambience in your home. With virtually no impact clatter or echo, you can also enjoy more balanced sound from your TV, DVD player and hi-fi. And orthopaedic specialists confirm that Belgotex Carpets alleviate strain on backs and joints. Walking barefoot on carpeting also acts as reflex massage treatment.

And easy cleaning too

Stainproof Miracle Fibre is a highly advanced polypropylene fibre unique to Belgotex. Colourfast, stain resistant, antimicrobial and anti-allergenic, carpets are also resistant to mould and mildew. Most stubborn stains can be removed simply by using an equal mix of clear household bleach and water.
