Sustainability

The reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, carbon dioxide in particular, is a key concern for modern society.

Compared to traditional screeds, Cemfloor can offer a CO2 reduction of up to 65%. This is due to the reduced cement content used to produce Cemfloor and the lower depths which Cemfloor can be installed at compared to traditional screeds.

Health and Safety

Health and Safety are embedded in our core values. While our reserves and facilities represent significant assets, our most important resource is our people. We encourage the commitment of everyone to act as stewards of safety, thus ensuring a secure and healthy workplace for co-workers, contractors and business partners.

The installation of Cemfloor screed is much less labour intensive than traditional screed. The risk of injury is greatly reduced as installers don’t have to manually level out the screed and thus there is no risk of getting cement burns.
