The Uptec pedestal system is made of recycled high-density polypropylene plastic. It offers a variety of potential environmental advantages in comparison to the traditional techniques of posing and dismantling floors. Because pedestals can be easily disassembled without being mixed with other materials during the dismantling phase, the recycling rate potential at the installed floor end of life is improved. No water, glue or adhesives are required during the installation phase, nor additional energy because the process is entirely manual. Uptec pedestals are light to transport, further reducing their environmental impact, and they do not release dust or substances harmful to the environment during their entire use phase. Because Uptec pedestals are engineered to last for 30+ years, they are a waste-free option.
