Ground Control With Major Appeal
Resilient flooring as a category includes a surprisingly wide variety of hard surface materials that offer great style and value. Some resilient floorcoverings have lower initial costs with longer lifecycles than other materials. They’re generally easy to maintain which is especially useful in lobbies, landings, libraries — any space subjected to heavy use. Increasingly, these flooring materials are the environmentally responsible choice based on manufacturing and recyclability. Resilient floorcoverings are available in a tremendous range of colors, patterns, designs and textures to suit the style preferences of any workplace. They all share a remarkable versatility and toughness, even in the most demanding applications. No wonder resilient floorcoverings are a popular choice for commercial interiors.
Luxury Vinyl Tile
Luxury vinyl tile — or LVT as it’s commonly known — is a high-end vinyl product that combines the qualities most in demand for commercial floors: looks and durability. LVT is available in a wide array of styles, textures and sizes. Some patterns faithfully resemble other, more expensive natural stones while being easier to install and easier on the feet. LVT is highly durable and easy to maintain, which is especially useful in educational and healthcare facilities.
Vinyl Composition Tile
Another popular category of commercial floorcovering is VCT — vinyl composition tile. Because these tiles are relatively low cost and very durable they are used successfully in high-traffic areas. Vinyl is impact- and abrasion-resistant. Generally VCT can withstand repeated refinishing with strippers and finishes. When properly installed, individual tiles can be replaced if necessary. With all the style and color choices available, VCT is an inspired, practical and beautiful choice for many commercial environments.
Rubber has a certain appeal as flooring — it’s modern, hip and fun. But rubber was used on floors as long as a hundred years ago because of its resilience and comfort. Rubber offers many practical benefits. It’s slip-resistant and shock absorbing. Rubber has natural sound-deadening properties so it’s valuable when acoustics are an issue. Rubber is also sustainable because it’s a natural product. Today’s rubber flooring is unique and stylish.
