World first environmentally friendly flooring wins HIA GreenSmart Product Award
Queensland-based Sexyfloors Australia is the winner of the HIA GreenSmart Product of the Year Award.
The HIA-Boral GreenSmart Awards recognise the best in environmentally responsible housing.
Epoxy flooring is an innovative product and first of its kind to hit the world stage. The epoxy resin is space age technology that can be used both inside and outside. Together with its creative and unique designs, it can be applied to residential, commercial and industrial applications.
“It’s a showcase for products that have reduced embodied impacts. It looks great and is impressively comparable in price,” the judges said.
“It was also recently awarded the GECA tick approval for environmentally floors, an accolade to the company for its product,” the judges said.
Congratulating Sexyfloors Australia, HIA Managing Director Shane Goodwin said the HIA-Boral GreenSmart Awards represent the latest and best in environmentally responsible housing.
“The awards recognise the growing contribution HIA builders are voluntarily making in making new homes greener and more liveable,” Mr Goodwin said.
“The HIA GreenSmart program continues to play a significant role in keeping industry members and consumers aware of environmentally responsible housing,” Mr Goodwin said.
The awards ceremony was held on October 15 at the MAIA Docklands, Melbourne. Crace is a HIA GreenSmart leader and partner of this award.
