The Durable Corporation has been recycling tires into high quality industrial and commercial products for over 75 years. Durable's core product lines include both floor mats and loading dock bumpers from recycled post-consumer tires. Having grown and diversified over seven decades, they now offer complimentary products in both lines to provide dealers and customers with complete matting and loading dock protection products.
Dura-Tile is environmentally friendly, made from post consumer bias-ply tires. The attractive carpet-like surface traps dirt, absorbs moisture, and protects floors while providing a touch of luxury in areas of frequent foot traffic and is easily maintained by vacuuming or a commercial carpet cleaner. Suitable for any entrance or as wall-to-wall floor covering.
