Purpose Floor is a highly resilient bio-based PUR (polyurethane) flooring made from natural ingredients and manufactured in an ecologically responsible facility. At its core is ecuran, a sustainable high-performance composite material produced from plant-based oils such as canola or castor oil and naturally occurring mineral components like chalk.
Purpose Floor was developed to create beautiful, durable, and sophisticated flooring solutions for light commercial interiors. Renewable ingredients and designs formed in nature give life to this sustainable flooring for healthy living on Purpose.

Purpose Floor consists of multiple layers that work together to create beautiful, durable, and long-lasting flooring for light commercial environments.
Advanced technology, precision engineering, ecological responsibility and more than 10 years of research and development have gone into the formulation of ecuran to manufacture flooring.
Ecuran is a unique bio-based PUR (polyurethane) manufactured primarily from plant-based oils such as canola oil and castor oil, and naturally occurring minerals. One material that combines both performance and sustainability.
Well known for its versatility, durability, and resistance to abrasion and impact, polyurethane is an elastic material that has a wide variety of uses. Polyurethane has been used for decades as a protective coating for wood floors, vehicles, and furniture. It is also used to manufacture a broad range of products such as footwear, bungee cords, medical tubing and devices, and much more.
With the development of ecuran, Windmoeller has successfully eliminated petroleum and instead uses natural and renewable resources to produce this high-performance material. Additionally, ecuran does not contain any harmful chemicals or compounds such as pollutants, chlorine compounds, plasticizer additives and flame retardants.
Windmoeller is still the only manufacturer using ecuran to produce polyurethane resilient flooring.
Sold throughout Europe for more than eight years, Purpose Organic Flooring was introduced to the US market in 2023.
Designed for light commercial environments, Purpose Floor delivers award-winning design and unbeatable durability that is responsibly sourced and manufactured in Germany.
