Chicago—Novalis Innovative Flooring has added a PVC-free sheet flooring to its repertoire under its AVA commercially specified brand. The company showcased the new flooring June 11-13 at NeoCon, here.
“There are some applications, such as healthcare spaces, that require a PVC-free flooring solution and we wanted to be able to offer that solution as well as all of our other great LVT products,” said Melissa Quick, product and marketing manager for AVA. “We’ve created what we believe will stand up with the best in class, in terms of styling, quality and environmental certifications.”
AVA’s collections of glue-down, PVC-free sheet flooring include: NTRGE (wood-look design) and SNRGY (stone-look design). Both collections include eight colors to choose from and are available in 4.59 x 65 rolls with a transparent wear layer that includes antimicrobial protection. They also have color-coordinated welding beads.
NTRGE and SNRGY are made to meet rigorous environmental standards. In addition to being PVC-free, they are also halogen, red list, plasticizer and phthalate free.
All third-party tests and certifications, such as FloorScore, Declare and GreenGuard Gold are in process, according to Novalis.
