Lancaster, Pa.—Armstrong Flooring has launched Essentials Plus. The rigid core product is designed for residential spaces and features on-trend designs while offering the same excellent performance standards expected from Armstrong Flooring, according to the company.
Touting the tagline, “Beauty Built to Last,” Armstrong Flooring said its newest rigid core collection, Essentials Plus, channels the popular Japandi design influence with a 20-SKU assortment. The assortment is said to encapsulate the hybrid trend of melding Scandinavian and Japanese design creating a warm and calming aesthetic with a focus on clean lined minimalism. Built to withstand active lifestyles and households, Essentials Plus’ 5.5mm SPC core offers superior indent resistance, while its 100% waterproof planks are protected by a 20-mil, commercial-grade wear layer for increased durability and lasting scratch, scuff and stain protection, according to the company. It is available in 60-inch planks with 7-inch and 9-inch width options.
“As design trends move to a cleaner and lighter aesthetic, influenced by the height of pandemic, ‘Japandi’ comes to forefront,” said Di Anna Borders, vice president, design. “This is a melding of the modern flair of Scandinavian design and the timeless elegance of the Japanese aesthetic. Essentials Plus features clean, natural-looking woods and trend-forward concrete looks.”
Essentials Plus comes with a 30-year residential limited warranty and 10-year commercial limited warranty when installed in accordance with the recommended Armstrong Flooring adhesive and instructions.
