Soar Like an Eagle

FlyOver Canada

We’re thrilled to have been part of this exciting project! FlyOver Canada is a $15 million major visitor attraction that let’s you soar across Canada. It’s a must-experience ride!

We worked closely with the world-famous design team to supply and install over 11,000 sq. ft. of Dinoflex® recycled rubber flooring throughout the venue. It took over four months to cut and install the intricate details in the floor.

A few weeks ago, we supplied and installed one of our new eco-friendly surfaces for an upcoming episode of Love It or List It Vancouver. It’s all top-secret for now, but here’s a little sneak peek:

Little Green Mowing Company

As a driver of a Smart car, I couldn’t help but fall in love with the Little Green Mowing Company’s very own Smart car and trailer. Not only do we both drive the same cute car, but we’re both also committed to eco-friendly services and products. Smart!

As a boutique flooring and surface showroom, The Eco Floor Store has the opportunity to work with many talented interior designers who want unique products for their spaces. Jamie Banfield from jB interior designs is one of those designers – he’s always on the lookout for that perfect surface that adds just the right amount of wow factor to each of his designs.

Our most recent project with Jamie was a cork wall treatment for CanTrust Financial Services in Surrey, BC. We supplied over 90 sq. ft. of our new outer burl cork wall panels and he transformed them into a beautiful feature wall behind the reception desk. Thanks for the photos Jamie!

Cork is an excellent choice for interior designers looking for an eco-friendly material to use as a wall covering. Not only does cork add lots of character to a space, but it is an excellent sound and thermal insulator, it is antimicrobial and anti-allergenic, it’s fire resistant, and it has low VOC emissions. + Learn more about our cork wall surface options here

FlyOver Canada LogoIt’s no secret that my family and I are huge (HUGE!!) Disneyland fans. So when The Eco Floor Store put in a bid to be the flooring contractor at Vancouver’s very-own, must-see attraction, I had all of my fingers and toes crossed… for weeks! And when we got the good news from Soaring Attractions that we would be supplying and installing the floors, the thrill was as big as the one I get from my favourite ride at Disneyland.

FlyOver Canada is a $15 million major destination visitor attraction at Canada Place in Vancouver, BC. It’s the first ride of its kind in Canada and it’s absolutely fantastic!


And I’m not just saying that because of the spectacular floors throughout the venue, but because it truly is that great. The smell of fresh cut hay, the mist of ocean waves, the all-Canadian scenery… it’s a definite must-experience!

The opportunity to work on the same team as Rick Rothschild – legendary Creative Director for world-renowned theme parks  – and Studio Sircus – a Vancouver-based creative studio for themed attractions around the globe – was very exciting. We got to see creative geniuses at work!

The design team chose Dinoflex® as the floor of choice for FlyOver Canada. The Eco Floor Store is proud to have supplied and installed over 11,000 sq.ft. of Dinoflex® throughout the venue, including the multiple sets of stairs. Working closely with the design team, it took us over 4 months to install the intricate patterns and details in the floors.
