This years Ecobuild sees Gerflor previewing the most sustainable innovations from its extensive range of high performance and durable vinyl flooring products, interior finishes and accessory solutions, for the contract, sports and housing sectors.
Taraflex sports flooring solutions are used in both community and professional venues where first class performance and comfort count. Gerflor, through its IHF and FIVB partnerships, will supply courts for Volleyball and Handball tournaments during the London 2012 Olympic Games and for Sitting Volleyball during the Paralympic Games. Taraflex Sport M Comfort and Taraflex Multi-Use 6.2 cater, respectively, for the needs of multi-sport and multi-use venues.
For the healthcare sector, Mipolam Symbioz is Gerflors brand new top-of-the range flooring solution. It is the only abrasion group T flooring to combine the lowest weight ever for a 2mm homogeneous product; an exclusive bio-based plasticiser made from 100% organic sources; 40 times lower VOC emissions than European standards and a revolutionary new surface treatment, all coupled with fresh designs and colours to suit any needs.
Among Gerflors many other innovations are its fast track solutions that are ideal for the refurbishment of heavy traffic areas including receptions and corridors. Both GTI and Attraction are tile products that have a dovetail joint connecting system which makes the tiles quick and easy to install or replace. GTI is ideally suited to industrial and retail situations, such as production, stocking and packaging areas, while Attraction is perfect for shops, supermarkets and bars.
Gerflors luxury vinyl tile ranges include Creation. This is a sophisticated, low maintenance and flexible collection of decorative tiles and strips. Available in a choice of sizes and offering over 120 highly realistic references, Creation embraces wood and mineral finishes. It is ideal for bringing life to high traffic areas such as retail, hotel, healthcare, office, nursing home and education reception environments.
The award winning Creation Clic System consists of interlocking planks which clip together vertically using Gerflors patented Clic technology, helping to reduce downtime and disruption. The product has a wide range of applications including reception areas, the bedrooms and living rooms of retirement homes, offices, hotels, shops and cafeterias.
