Calhoun, Ga.—Mannington Commercial introduced the Bloom collection, three coordinating styles of high-performance heterogeneous sheet designed for healthcare and senior living spaces. As part of the launch, the company partnered with Mercy Medical Angels, a non-profit organization that provides medical transportation to patients in financial need. For every square yard purchased, the company said it will donate 3% of the purchase price to Mercy Medical Angels.
“Although Bloom and our partnership with Mercy Medical Angels had been in the works prior the outbreak of the coronavirus, this initiative takes on a greater sense of relevance right now,” said Ian Campbell, business manager, commercial sheet. “Resilient sheet products like Bloom are an important flooring surface for hospitals and other healthcare facilities right now. And Mercy Medical Angels’ mission to provide free medical transportation to those who need it is vital—and will continue to be once the pandemic passes.”
The Bloom collection speaks to the ever-present human instinct to connect with the environment and other living things, the company said. Three refined styles help spaces bloom with images that promote healing, relaxation and rejuvenation.
Each new style of Bloom is available in eight colorways, encompassing warm and cool neutrals as well as sophisticated blues and greens:
- Wildflower is a larger-scale design that gathers pressed wildflowers into an abstract, overlapping pattern on an airy, textural background.
- Meander is a smaller-scale design that is more densely layered, with an abstract interpretation of foliage and texture.
- Wellspring is a coordinating textural design that is drawn from the background of the other two styles and also works well alone as a refined, biophilic pattern.
Bloom is available in 6 foot, 9 foot and 12 foot widths for ease of installation and less waste. The 6 foot width is offered with QuickStix, a pre-applied adhesive system that is said to eliminate the need for hours of labor. Resilient sheet with QuickStix also has superior moisture resistance properties, making it ideal for renovations where downtime has significant cost implications.
According to the company, the heterogeneous sheet has a non-ortho-phthalate construction and is FloorScore Certified. Featuring an industry-wide, third-party Type III EPD, the collection may also contribute to LEED credits. The collection is engineered to perform in demanding healthcare environments while remaining easy to clean. Quantum Guard Elite, Mannington Commercial’s performance technology, allows the resilient sheet to deliver resistance to abrasions, stains and slipping. The collection carries a limited 12-year commercial warranty and limited 12-year Quantum Guard Elite wear warranty.
