Lancaster, Pa.— Armstrong Flooring has received Platinum Awards for Design Excellence (ADEX) for four products: MedinPure PVC-Free Sheet; Unbound Luxury Flooring; Parallel USA Luxury Flooring; and Empower Rigid Core. Additionally, MedinPure was recognized as a Best of 2020 Product.
“We’re very proud to have been selected again for multiple Platinum ADEX awards,” said Brent Flaharty, senior vice president and chief customer experience officer. “To have four products recognized for exceptional design and performance amid our ongoing business transformation efforts speaks to the exceptional teams we have in place and that our hard work continues to head in the right direction.”
MedinPure is a PVC-free homogeneous vinyl sheet alternative that uses a patent-pending formulation, including coordinating PVC-free weld rods for aseptic areas. MedinPure is free of ortho-phthalates, halogens, isocyanates and Red List Chemicals of Concern.
Unbound is a 5mm LVT product designed for seamless transitions to carpet in adjoining spaces, eliminating the need for transition strips. Unbound features Diamond 10 Technology, to provide category-leading scratch, stain and scuff resistance. It’s a low-maintenance solution designed to stand up to the wear and tear of commercial settings for floors that look newer, longer.
Manufactured in the U.S., Parallel USA luxury flooring offers a balance of performance, design and price. Its performance has been strengthened with Urethane Plus coating to provide enhanced resistance to scratches, stains and scuffs compared to standard urethane coatings. The curated collection features sophisticated fabric designs in subtle neutral tones on a tile format, and an array of wood species.
Empower Rigid Core flooring was built using our new and innovative Reinforced Mineral Core (RMC) to provide the best available performance. This new core outperforms traditional rigid core products in both indent and stability while remaining 100% waterproof, and our exclusive Diamond 10® Technology coating provides best-in-class scratch and stain protection to allow maximum flexibility when choosing residential resilient flooring.
ADEX is said to be the largest and most prestigious awards program for product and project design in the architecture and design industry. Honored for superior design, these awards recognize products across several flooring types (sheet, LVT and rigid core), as well as on both the commercial and residential sides of the business. More than 600 companies participated in the 2020-21 ADEX Awards. Since 1995 the ADEX Awards has recognized designs demonstrating superior innovation, function and aesthetics.
