Innovative Recycled Glass Walls

Installed in luxurious residences and commercial settings throughout the world, this spectacular finish is available in over 30 different colors and can be applied on virtually any surface.
It is hand applied over a solid substrate and can accommodate logos and corporate identities with easy. The limitations are only set by your imagination.

Since between 60%-100% of our crystal glass wall system is recycled glass, this stunning application’s origins have a significantly positive impact on the environment. Instead of procuring new glass, the majority of the system is diverted from a landfill. The hard and non-porous characteristics of glass, along with the seamless nature of Quartz Carpet discourage bacterial growth, mold and decay. So the 30+ year lifespan of Quartz Carpet and Crystal Glass wall system beats most widely used interior-flooring systems hands down. Quartz carpet’s minimal maintenance requirements also go easy on the environment.

Composition and Embodied Energy

Quartz Carpet is composed of naturally occurring aggregates, recycled glass and binders. The binders constitute approximately 25%-30% of the volume of the systems; the remainder of the floor and wall  is composed of aggregates and fillers.  Initial life cycle assessments of embodied energy appear extremely favorable due to the longevity and low energy usage for maintenance.

Depending on the application of our recycled glass products in a given project, an architect or client may claim LEED credits or “green points” for using our glass.  In particular, credits that are often claimed include:

  • NC Materials & Resources MR Credit 4.1 & 4.2 for recycled content for 1 or 2 points
  • NC Materials & Resources MR Credit 5.1 & 5.2 for local source for 1 or 2 points
  • NC Indoor Environmental Quality EQ Credit 4.1 for low VOC Quartz Carpet for 1 point
  • NC Innovation in Design ID Credit 1.1 for unique designs for 1 point
