EcoPremier, Wausau Tile’s newest line of green products, provide LEED credits toward your project certification. Wausau Tile has sourced out a manufacturer of porcelain sinks, toilets, showers and bathtubs and has agreed to reuse their porcelain seconds. Currently reusing this post industrial waste to manufacture green products is keeping massive amounts from being deposited in landfills. The porcelain is a direct replacement for aggregate used in all of our concrete products. The amount of porcelain is at 43% volume by weight of product. Depending on the desired look, the porcelain can be visible at the surface of the product or contained within the product and not change the finished look.
Most green products in the market today cost more than their non-green alternative; this product however, does not!
The green products available with porcelain are:
- Custom precast concrete products
- Concrete planters
- Concrete Bollards
- Concrete benches
- Concrete tables
- Concrete waste containers
- Concrete snuffers
- Concrete pavers
- Terrazzo tile
- Precast terrazzo and epoxy product
