A versatile and environmentally-friendly alternative.
Jun 29, 2011
Are you looking to spruce up your deck, balcony, sun room or exercise room? Would you like to make the workshop, laundry room or recreation room in your basement a more attractive and comfortable place to work or play in? Or maybe you are considering installing a new patio or walkway on your property. If so then Multy Home, based in Toronto, Canada has some exciting news for you! Introducing Multy Envirotiles….an environmentally-friendly product made from recycled car and truck tires. Envirotiles are the lightweight, non-slip, noise and impact-absorbing and weather-resistant alternative to the more traditional and considerably heavier alternatives like stone pavers. If there is such a project in your immediate future then you should definitely take a close look at Envirotiles.
Aside from being an environmentally-friendly product another reason to consider Multy Envirotiles is that they are relatively easy to install…..NO CONTRACTOR NEEDED! These 18" x 18" tiles weigh just 8 lb. each so they are both relatively easy to handle while being just heavy enough to stay put. Anyone can install Envirotiles in just three easy steps: 1) Insert Envirotile Connecting Clip into the tile, 2) Connect next tile and 3) Tap together using a soft mallet. And voila…you're done! No glue or adhesives needed although you can use them if you so choose. Envirotiles can also be easily trimmed. Just mark off and cut using a jigsaw or utility knife. Envirotiles come in a variety of colors and designs that allow you to create your own custom floor. Furthermore, there are grooves in the tiles that allow water to flow beneath the tiles. Right now this product is available exclusively at Home Depot or www.homedepot.com You can purchase individual tiles or buy them in packs of 4, 40, 160 or 800 tiles. Multy Envirotiles come with a limited 5 year warranty which is spelled out in detail online at http://envirotile.ca/warranty.html
Some years ago my wife and I were travelling on I-81 in Pennsylvania when we came upon a massive tire dump on the side of the highway. It seems that this dump went on for miles and was a major eyesore. I wondered aloud what would happen if this dump ever caught fire. Needless to say it would have been an environmental disaster of epic proportions. These days forward-looking companies like Multy Home are creating innovative and cost-effective products like Envirotiles to help prevent objects like car and truck tires from ending up in landfills. Consumers would be wise to consider such items when planning a project. Multy Envirotiles may not be suitable for everyone but they just might prove to be the right choice for that project that you are contemplating. Why not take a few minutes to check them out online?
DISCLAIMER: Multy Home L.P. is a division of Natco Products Corp., West Warwick, RI which is the company that I work for.
