Atlanta—Interface launched its first vinyl sheet products, expanding its current portfolio of products that includes carpet tile, LVT and nora rubber flooring. With the expansion in the resilient category, a full suite of flooring options that meets the needs and requirements of healthcare facilities is now available, according to the company.
The expansion includes the introduction of the Interlaced collection and Continual Woodgrains vinyl sheet products. With both launches, Interface said it provides high-performance solutions for patient rooms and other healing spaces that require seamless installation, ease of maintenance, stain resistance and slip resistance along with durability.
“Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we see healthcare institutions opting to use sheet flooring throughout clinical areas due to its disinfection protocols and sterile perception,” said Jim Poppens, president, Interface Americas. “In expanding our portfolio to include vinyl sheet products, we’re directly addressing the needs of our healthcare customers by providing flooring that marries aesthetic and functional requirements to support the built healing environment.”
The Interlaced collection and Continual Woodgrains vinyl sheet products aim to help end-users create high-performance spaces that support the demands of healthcare facilities. They provide design flexibility to create attractive, supportive spaces that contribute to increased patient satisfaction and improved operational efficiencies, Interface said.
The Interlaced collection includes three monolithic styles—Meshed, Crossed and Looped—that take patterning cues from natural fabrics in eight nature-inspired colors, the company said. Continual Woodgrains is available in eight colors and reflects the continued trend of wood-like surfaces in the health care segment to evoke a home-style feel, Interface added.
The Interlaced collection and Continual Woodgrains are carbon neutral across their full product lifecycle through the third-party verified Carbon Neutral Floors program, according to the company.
