Mbrico Tile Decks: Peacefully Green
When assessing the “eco-friendliness” of a product there are multiple factors that must be considered. The raw materials and components that make up a product are profoundly important to consider as well as the manufacturing process and lifespan.
From the control of emissions to the recycling of waste from the manufacturing process, Mbrico’s approach has always been based on strict ethical principles designed to effectively safeguard our habitat, in order to improve our own quality of life and in particular that of generations to come.
The Mbrico Advantage

- All the tile component collections offered by Mbrico are LEED compliant and in line with the IPPC directive.
- Compliance with a series of stringent requisites and the use of the finest techniques available for industrial processes.
Mbrico believes that designing quality floors and coverings must not disregard protection of the environment. Therefore, the company has invested heavily in researching, developing new products and using components in line with American and International ecological parameters.
