Dickson Woven Flooring: a new collection that’s even kinder to the planet

An environmentally friendly company
Well aware of the environmental stakes, Dickson launched a major campaign under the banner of its GreenOvation initiative. By optimising its energy management, minimising the use of chemical
substances, obtaining ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certification and so forth, Dickson has clearly established its position as an eco-friendly business that cares about curbing its environmental footprint as much as possible.
To improve the well-being of users, air quality and indoor comfort, the woven upper layer of our Dickson floor coverings has always been phthalate-free.
As we believe quality materials play a vital role in their environment, the challenge presented by this new collection for our R&D department was to successfully produce flooring with 0% phthalate - including the bottom layer - and free from plasticizers.
This commitment to remove controversial substances from our new collection reflects Dickson’s innovation approach to the environment and complies with European REACH standards.
Good indoor air quality is essential because people spend most of their lives indoors. The air we breathe affects both our health and our well-being, from minor disturbances, such as odours, skin and
eye irritations, to the development or aggravation of more serious
ailments, such as respiratory allergies.
Independently tested and certified by the Resilient Floor Covering Institute (RFCI), Dickson® flooring meets the official emissions criteria for volatile organic components (VOC) and is recognized as contributing to good indoor air quality

Awning: an asset to develop your brand identity
Logo, baseline, colours, shapes : a well-built brand identity helps to increase your company’s visibility. It must be defined by thoughtful graphics and visual codes in order to give meaning to the rest of the communication and to unify it in order to keep a coherence that will benefit your company. We often think of the shop window as the first point of communication. However, awnings offer an excellent additional alternative. Dickson fabrics are tailored to your needs and expectations in terms of visual identity, thanks to a wide choice of colours but also to their possibility of personalization.
