EcoPath and Washington St. Conv. Center team together for green solutions
Dalton, GA (May 27, 2010) EcoPath™ Sustainable Entryway Systems has teamed up with the Washington State Convention Center to provide an environmentally friendly solution for the entryway mats in their buildings. The Washington State Convention Center knew they needed new high-quality mats in their buildings, but they also wanted a product that would contribute to the building's LEED® total. After researching the market and looking at the available options, Washington State Convention Center decided to go with EcoPath™. EcoPath™ provided 15 separate EcoRib mats for the entryways into the convention center. EcoRib is one of the styles available from EcoPath™ and is designed to channel water and trap wet or dry dirt.
EcoPath™ Sustainable Entryway Systems come with an EnviroCel™ polyurethane backing. EnviroCel™ is constructed from recycled, recovered and renewable materials that are 60% to 70% green by backing weight. The renewable materials in EnviroCel™ replace large percentages of petroleum based components in its polyurethane chemistry with soybean based polyols. EnviroCel™ contains Celceram® as well. Celceram® is a recovered pre-consumer recycled mineral compound that enhances the performance of the product and contributes to the overall environmental friendliness of the mats.
"I really appreciate the attention to detail and the level of customer service the EcoPath™ team provided during the selection process. The product that was delivered exceeded our expectations from a quality and cost perspective. EcoPath™ made the decision to go 'Green' easy."– Ed Barnes, Vice President of Operations, Washington State Convention Center.
