7.6 Guidelines

149

• Equip products with automatic damage diagnostics system (Example 7.16) • Design products for facilitated on-site reparation • Design complementary repair tools, materials and documentation (Example 7.17)

Examples 7.15.1 Interface Flooring System offers leased flooring (e. g. for the Southern California Gas Company). The bundle consists of: the flooring systems, installation and maintenance, as well as recovery and end-of-life treatments. The flooring system is installed in such a way that allows easy repair and replacement of damaged parts. Materials rendered unusable are recycled by the Interface Flooring System company itself. 7.15.2 Mirra chair by Herman Miller can have its damaged parts easily replaced. This has been achieved by following the rules of Design for Environment, written by Herman Miller, which concentrates on creating economic value whilst at the same time respecting the environment and involves the Design for Environment team throughout the designing process.
