Calhoun, Ga.—Mannington Commercial introduced the Open Range collection, a rubber plank flooring collection designed to offer a brand-new look to the product category.
With the inherent benefits that come from a rubber product, including enhanced performance, comfort, safety and acoustics, Open Range is an ideal flooring solution for commercial interiors ranging from healthcare and education to office and retail, according to Mannington Commercial.
“Open Range’s visual emulates the type of variation one may see in the character of natural elements,” said Roby Isaac, vice president of commercial design, Mannington Commercial. “One person may connect to the product’s organic feel of wood grains, while another may appreciate how it resembles the veining found in beautiful stones. The tonal differences provide variation from plank to plank but also create visual depth and texture that make Open Range an unmistakably unique option in flooring.”
The collection comes in a 6.25 x 42 plank format and is available in 12 warm and neutral tones, which coordinates with many of the other carpet and resilient flooring lines from Mannington Commercial, the company said.
According to Mannington Commercial, its thermoset rubber “recipe” creates rubber flooring that is slip resistant, easy to maintain and expertly engineered to provide better acoustics and greater comfort underfoot. All Mannington Commercial rubber products, including Open Range, never need waxing due to a proprietary combination of waxes manufactured into the rubber itself, according to the company. Rubber flooring products made by Mannington Commercial do not require finishing or stripping, further lowering maintenance costs.
Open Range contains 4% rapidly renewable resource content by total product weight and is FloorScore Certified. It is also EPD- and HPD-certified and Red List Free. Open Range also features a limited 10-year commercial warranty and a limited 10-year wear warranty.
