Since 1926 Salis has been creating high quality wood flooring, today also very stylish. The raw material either proceeds from old disused wooden houses or from European forests managed in ethical and responsible way.
Our surfaces are featured by volatile organic compounds (VOC) emission rates significantly lower than the limits provided for law: the finishes such as oil and wax are natural, while the varnishes, the UV cured oils or the resins have zero dry residue in order to be recycled, reused or restored through time.
We are not as green as we would like to be.
For us, women and men belonging to the Salis community, this is not a weakness but a strong point prompting us to ask ourselves on a day-to-day basis: what more can I do? We are not doing this for ourselves, we do it for Them, those who will come next. This is the reason why we make efforts everyday in order to implement the impact of our flooring on the environment and the implications of our daily living for the good health of the planet.
Make a kid understand in which way you are green. The sun provides us with the necessary energy for the big machinery to operate.
We cut the wood in extremely thin slices, ensuring that nothing goes to waste.
Often we pick threw out woods bringing them to new life.
We only select old trees replanting immediately new ones. We don’t like plastic and we separate waste collection.
We are not doing this for ourselves, we do it especially for you, you deserving a better world than the one that you’ve been delivered until now.
In 10 years biodegradable products will replace plastic and wood proceeding from certified forests will become the ultimate building material. The separate waste collection will be a common practice not considered as in imposition anymore, while sustainable energy sources will inevitably delete the old and harmful ones. Being eco-friendly will become a trend and the companies all around the world will compete on being the best at it: the first question won’t be “How much is it?” anymore, instead “How green is this?“.
