Armstrong’s Striations BioBased Tile from Armstrong Commercial Floors took top honors at the 2012 Symposium Distinction Awards sponsored by FacilityCare magazine, winning both Architect’s Choice and Best in Show.

The awards were presented during the Healthcare Facilities Symposium & Expo held in Chicago from October 2-4, 2012.  FacilityCare magazine, in association with the Healthcare Facilities Symposium & Expo, sponsors the awards.

“Armstrong’s Striations BioBased Tile demonstrated real innovation and our judges rewarded them with Architect’s Choice and Best in Show for the overall prize within the product category. Armstrong deserves recognition for a great product,” said Jenabeth Ferguson, event director, Healthcare Facilities Symposium & Expo.

Award-winning Striations BBT has changed the way designers look at premium tile.  The contemporary floor covering is ecologically sound and economical.  The linear visual suggests a natural appearance in a 12″ x 24″ format that helps hide seams.  It’s easy for use in healthcare, hospitality, education, office and retail interiors.

Striations’ essential polymer ingredient, BioStride, is made with a domestically grown, rapidly-renewable plant source, helping to reduce reliance on petroleum and fossil fuels.  Manufactured in Armstrong’s Jackson, Miss. plant, the product contains at least 60% content from U.S. sources and 10% pre-consumer recycled content (recycled limestone). In addition to the enhanced range of green benefits, Striations has twice the indent resistance and more than five times greater impact resistance of standard composition tile. BioBased Tile is FloorScore certified to meet or exceed the nation’s most stringent indoor air quality requirements for low emissions of volatile organic compounds. It also contributes to the U.S. Green Building Council’s credits for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED).

“We are delighted with this prestigious honor.  It’s reflective of the opinions of the members of the healthcare industry who chose Armstrong for its commitment to value, durability and design,” said Julianne Pierce, director of commercial marketing & product design, Armstrong.

In addition to receiving the awards at the Healthcare Facilities Symposium & Expo in Chicago, Christy Reed, Armstrong’s healthcare specialist sales manager, served as a panelist at the Symposium Distinction Awards session at this year’s conference, moderated by Emily Howards of FacilityCare magazine.
