Raised Flooring Systems and Support
Naturalis holds extensive knowledge and experience of the construction industry within its team and therefore we can provide support in tendering and design stages of projects large and small. With our exclusive Raised Flooring Systems, our team can provide a fully specified system to support external decking (Timber, Composite and Aluminium), paving (Porcelain and concrete), Planters, Staging and much more.
All our Systems have been fully designed and many are already available in the BIM Library.
At Naturalis, the respect for people and the environment is a veritable work philosophy, a core value. For this reason, the company sources materials which assist in safeguarding the environment and attests Naturalis as a purveyor of products of eco-sustainable porcelain stoneware.
And it is no coincidence that the chosen factory for production was the first porcelain stoneware manufacturer in the world to obtain the ISO 14001 certification (1998), a testament to the belief that is possible to combine industrial development, quality improvement and environmental sustainability.
Moreover, Naturalis porcelain stoneware products can be used by planners following the guidelines of the Green Building Council and can contribute to the LEED certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) of buildings.
In light of this, the factory made the decision to offer a wide range of porcelain stoneware tiles containing a considerable percentage of recycled material, in order to reduce the exploitation of virgin raw materials and reduce the production of waste.
Some of the commitments in which the factory and Naturalis can benefit customers and end users.
100% recycling of industrial water
Thanks to the investments done in production machinery and equipment, the factory can purify and recycle the water used during the production process thus reducing the exploitation of this precious natural resource.
100% eco-compatible products
manufactured using natural raw materials, such as clay, quartz, feldspar, kaolin and natural dyes. The absence of harmful substances such as lead and cadmium, eliminates or reduces damage to the health of people working in the production departments or those who live in the spaces clad with our ceramic products.
100% recycling of ceramic waste
deriving from the pre-firing process. Porcelain stoneware tiles that do not comply with our quality standards are not fired but re-introduced into the production process. This reduces the consumption of raw materials.
100% recyclable packaging
The materials used for the packaging of porcelain stoneware tiles and for the majority of our marketing tools are totally recyclable and made up of paper, paperboard, wood and plastic.
100% recyclable fired tiles
Even fired waste tiles that cannot be re-introduced into the production process are recycled and used to produce substrate of roads. Moreover, compared to other finishing materials with a high environmental impact that must be disposed in specific landfills, ceramic waste are inert therefore they do not represent an environmental hazard.
Use of FAO pallets
for transport in accordance with the ISPM-15 FAO STANDARD. The use of this type of pallets reduces the contamination risk for countries importing our porcelain stoneware tiles.
Minimum release of polluting substances
into the atmosphere. The investments made in avant-garde machinery abating the release of polluting substances and gases reduce the environmental impact of the production process.
The investments in innovative technologies result in the reduction of the energy need for the firing of tiles to a minimum. Moreover, thanks to an avant-garde co-generation plant, the factory has been able to reduce the consumption of methane gas and energy in compliance with the highest standards of efficiency.
Composite decking products for the residential and commercial markets
Combining FSC® 100% certified hardwood timber with recycled plastic, our composite decking and fencing products offer the traditional look and feel of timber, with the attractive benefits the inclusion of plastic has to offer. For a longer-lasting, low maintenance alternative to timber look no further.
Naturalis Decking – Composite Prime
At Naturalis, we are extremely proud to have formed a unique partnership with composite Prime decking in order to maintain our beliefs and dedication to provide our customers with high quality products which are sustainable, environmentally friendly and ethically sourced.
Composites combine two or more materials with significantly different properties to produce a new product with unique characteristics to the original constituent parts. Our wood plastic composite materials combine both FSC® 100% certified hardwood timber and recycled plastic.
Some of the benefits and advantages of using Composite Prime decking:
Naturally resistant to mould and fungus, the number one cause of rot & decay in traditional timber.
There is the equivalent of more than 3,000 recycled plastic bottle caps per square metre of decking.
Maintaining its aesthetic appeal years after installation, HD Deck requires no staining, treating or painting.
Safe and resistant to slippage in wet and dry conditions.
HD Deck will not warp, bend or splinter like traditional timber decking. Rot and decay are a thing of the past.
HD Deck is not only comfortable to walk on barefoot, its also safe because of it’s splinter free properties!
