Aurora, Colo.—Fuse Alliance has announced the addition of HPS Schönox as a preferred supplier. HPS Schönox will supply the member-owned network of flooring contractors with a full line of subfloor products. The Schönox series includes primers, repair mortars, floor leveling compounds and adhesives. “We’re thrilled to add HPS Schönox as a preferred supplier to the Fuse,” said Ron Lee, executive director, Fuse Alliance. “Its leadership understands the value of the professional flooring contractor, and how together we can provide solutions to substrates we currently don’t have available.”
The association with Fuse solidifies the working relationship with HPS Schönox to supply members with a full line of subfloor products engineered to achieve smoother floors with faster installation processes that save time for installers and facility owners alike. “Schönox is bringing state-of-the-art subfloor products to the industry stemming from continuous research and development efforts,” explained Enos Farnsworth, president of HPS North America.
“Fuse has a strong environmental platform with its goal to eliminate waste going to landfills,” said Karen Bellinger, HPS Schönox business development. “Many times our products can turn demolition projects into renovation efforts, dramatically decreasing subfloor waste.” Schönox self-leveling products are often applied over challenging substrates with residual carpet glue, damaged ordinary gypsum products and uneven subfloors eliminating the need to remove and dispose of subfloors that are in place.
“The partnership between Fuse and Schönox brings two organizations together with very similar strategic objectives,” explained Farnsworth. “We both want to help flooring contractors to grow their businesses with technologically advanced products that will enhance each project they complete; our Schönox Roll and Go is a great example.” Roll and Go is a roll-able acrylic adhesive for use with luxury vinyl tile applied from a standing position. It comes as an integrated kit containing everything needed to use the product. Floor installation can begin 15 minutes after application. Tiles are bound immediately, can be walked on right away and bear loads immediately.
Schönox joins a select group of manufacturers part of Fuse that includes the industry’s most recognized brands of commercial flooring, accessories and installation products.
