As part of the Newmor Group we have been manufacturing contract Wallcoverings, here in the UK, for over 40 years, during which time we have developed products and manufacturing systems that minimise environmental impact. We operate an Environmental Management System based on ISO 14001.
low carbon footprint
The vast majority of our products are manufactured in the UK by us. Consequently the use of our products will help you minimise the harmful environmental effects associated with the transportation of imported wallcoverings.
“horses for courses”
Manufacturing a wide range of all types of wallcoverings, both vinyl’s and non vinyl’s, offering either water based or solvent based ink technology, whatever the product, we have always concentrated on minimising our environmental impact.
re-cycling / disposal
Wallcoverings generally form an insignificant amount of our waste; even so, many projects are being organised in the UK and Europe, to re-cycle plastic waste. Contrary to common belief, PVC is no more difficult or costly to re-cycle than any other plastic.
If incinerated in equipment with heat recovery and scrubbing facilities, the heat produced is used to generate electricity and the hydrogen chloride is recovered for re-use. PVC does not contribute to the amount of dioxins when incinerated. None of our wallcoverings are classified as non- hazardous; elements of them are biodegradable and they are considered to be extremely safe and stable landfill material.
Whichever, products you chose, you can be sure of our commitment to the environment. Our manufacturing facility is constantly monitored, both in-house and independently to ensure full compliance with the Environmental Protection Act. We have made significant investment in areas such as emission control and compactors that go beyond simply fulfilling our legal obligations.
