Calhoun, Ga.—Mannington Commercial, a leader in flooring for commercial interiors, has been awarded a Nightingale Award for Teles, its new high resiliency rubber plank and tile. Sponsored by The Center for Health Design, Contract and Healthcare Design 2014, the awards showcase the best in product design that contributes to the quality of healthcare.
In healthcare applications, high gloss, smooth rubber tile is desirable—but it is prone to show indentations with heavy rolling and static loads. With Teles, Mannington has created a new category of high resiliency rubber, with unprecedented indentation resistance, color retention and slip-resistance. Teles passes indentation tests with three times the required PSI resistance, and brings new levels of rubber’s comfort underfoot and acoustic properties to employees and patients.
