Cruise & Ferry Interiors 2022

4 7 Eco-friendly lighting for cabins For cruise and ferry passengers, the bedside light is perhaps one of the most important lights in the cabin, especially in the evenings when they want to feel comfortable. Hera’s bedside reading luminaire not only has a timeless design, is easy to use, comes in different colours and is designed for optimal reading comfort, but it is powered by electricity produced by sustainable means such as wind, water and biomass. The luminaire is efficient, environmentally friendly, recyclable and helps to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Colourful and sustainable carpets Ulster Carpets creates carpets in hundreds of colours and designs, with each one also being sustainable. From natural wool used in every carpet, to the 100 per cent renewable electricity used in its manufacturing, Ulster has demonstrated its commitment to protecting the planet. This is enhanced by quality service, high levels of expertise and an innovative approach that results in luxury, International Maritime Organization-certified carpets. Ulster creates bespoke designs, including on Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ Seven Seas Explorer (pictured), which means that cruise lines can create luxurious yet eco-friendly interiors. Flooring for the circular economy Floor manufacturer Gerflor is fully engaged in the circular economy by investing in eco-design for all its products and processes. All Gerflor marine solutions are designed to protect human health and well-being. Gerflor’s Streamo floors, as seen installed onboard DFDS’s Côte d’Opale, are fully recyclable, made up of on average of 20 per cent recycled content and are REACH (Regulation, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals) compliant, which is a European regulation that prevents chemical substances from potentially impacting human health. Each product produces less than 10 micrograms per cubic metre of volatile organic compounds emissions, improving indoor air quality. They are also designed to be durable and to reduce the environmental impact of cleaning with less water and detergent needed when maintained with Gerflor’s Evercare surface treatment.
