Buying an antique wood floor means surrounding oneself with the fascination of a material that gains beauty from time. Choosing Antico È means coming in contact with really antique, original and unique products. The certificate of authenticity accompanying ancient floors is meant as an act of responsibility by Antico È: it is a real promise of quality, elegance and exclusivity.
Antico È has obtained in June 2018 the LEED certification, which is issued to a building in its entirety, not to the single product; but it is also true that the final score assigned to the building will depend largely on the correct selection and use of compliant products / materials, this is why it is essential to certify the LEED credits (mapping) to which the product / material can compete in order to obtain certification.
Leed mapping takes place on a voluntary basis and we at Antico È decided to take this path to maintain and increase the quality standards of our productions.
ANTICO È products are ideal for green building projects as they are in harmony with the principles of environmental sustainability: the raw material of greater use, antique wood, is a recycled material that is part of an environmental protection discourse as it circle of noble material without impacts, the new material is all certified PEFC which testifies the provenance from controlled deforestation, the glues are free of formaldehyde and pentachlorophenol so they do not have volatile organic compounds that may endanger the health of the consumer, the finishing products are oil waxes completely obtained with products extracted from nature, such as linseed oil, hemp oil, sunflower oil, propolis, beeswax and carnauba wax, which give the floors and walls softness and brightness.
