HomePress ReleaseMannington Commercial updates BioSpec with specialized options for healthcare

Calhoun, Ga.–Mannington Commercial has announced the extension of its BioSpec collection of products. BioSpec Choices is a portfolio of four resilient sheet products designed to provide meaningful choices that work for the needs of healthcare interiors.

BioSpecMD, a homogeneous sheet created for acute care environments, brought a range of new benefits to healthcare spaces, upon its initial release. The product’s through-chip construction resists cuts, gouges, and indentions from heavy rolling loads, while Mannington’s patented QuantumGuardHP wear layer brings the high performance and low maintenance. BioSpec MD also introduced mCare to the market, an antimicrobial agent in the wear layer that resists bacterial growth and secondary infections. All in a resilient sheet with a lovely, understated aesthetic that is available in 70 colors.

“The early response to BioSpec MD was incredible, and we’re excited to bring this extension of the product line to healthcare spaces across the country,” said Bud Katzmann, Mannington Commercial’s product manager for commercial sheet.

The three new products bring specialized advantages that are engineered for varying needs of healthcare spaces. BioSpecRE incorporates 35% recycled content, including 20% post-consumer content reclaimed through Mannington’s LOOP recycling initiative. BioSpecSR is the right choice for spaces that require slip-resistant flooring, with superior traction in a low-contrast visual. BioSpecFB is a felt-back version for reducing costs in lighter traffic areas.

The three new products share 16 core colors of BioSpec MD’s palette, enabling a color-coordinated approach to using any combination of the products throughout healthcare facilities. All four BioSpec products come in 2-meter width, enabling simpler installation with fewer seams. Additionally, the products can be welded to other Mannington products, for seamless transitions.
