O'Learys find the solution with Bergo Flooring


When the well-known restaurant chain O'Leary's were to build a new restaurant in Nacka, Sweden, they needed flooring for the outdoor pavement area.  They wanted to create a stylish “O'Leary's atmosphere” with clear branding. The contractor was asked to find an alternative wooden decking which has been found to need too much maintenance; and they discovered the solution at Bergo Flooring. Bergo tiles were installed directly on the pavement and are completely maintenance free. O´Leary's in Nacka was the first to launch the new outdoor concept. Second in line is O´Leary's in Borlänge, who will have their Bergo tiles installed soon.

In short, the solution:  150 m2 free draining and maintenance free Bergo flooring in O'Leary´s colours - re-enforcing their brand as soon as you walk in.

The prize is awarded for innovative, creative and inspiring use of recycled material and actions leading to a significantly more efficient use of resources or increased recycling.

Among a total of 21 nominees, the jury appointed two final candidates, Bergo Flooring and Blocket. Bergo Flooring manufactures flooring products made of recycled materials and Blocket has created a marketplace for increased recycling.

Waste mountains turn into sports fields in Finland

Around 8000kg of previously discarded plastic is reincarnated into multifunctional sport fields and tennis courts in Finland.

All over Europe there are national targets for increased recycling and as an important step in Bergo Flooring's environmental commitment they have created a product range from 100% recycled material. They say that no plastic components should be made unnecessarily and so they are now manufacturing flooring from discarded and recycled plastic. 

Bergo products are well used and approved and around 70% of their products are exported. The first big export order of Bergo ECO Sport floors was recently delivered to Finland where sports fields and tennis courts have been ordered for a number of facilities. 

“It's fantastic that Bergo Flooring can help reduce the mountains of waste and in doing so, supply the world with products that will give pleasure to many people for years to come. Our products last for years, as exemplified by the flooring on the Silja Line ferries. This has lasted 25 years so far in the most extreme conditions you can expose a floor to,” says Eric Anderzon, CEO of Bergo Flooring. “We have attracted a huge amount of attention with our ECO range, not least among municipalities that are now improving their attractiveness profile and building 

casual sports grounds for their residents. We have got some big tenders, and every single order will contribute to a more sustainable and slightly better world,” concludes Eric Anderzon.

TactTiles are promoting Bergo's ECO range to the public through garden centres and selected retailers.


Hot tub ready for summer

Published 17th Apr 2014

We've just been sent this picture by a customer - obviously all ready for a great summer dining on the patio and relaxing in the hot tub.   This picture shows Piazza tiles in Terracotta which complement the brickwork perfectly.  They were laid over a concrete base and the whole area was completed in a weekend.  The patio serves as a family entertainment area as well as a play area for the children.  The Piazza tiles allow water to drain away underneath and give an anti-slip surface for barefoot hot tub users.  Piazza tiles can be laid on any hard surface, including slippery decking.
