A broad offering
The AHF Contract portfolio includes homogeneous sheet, heterogeneous sheet, inlaid heterogeneous sheet and LVT. These floors are ideal for use in healthcare, assisted living, education, corporate, hospitality, retail and other institutional interiors.
Within the new Nod to Nature contract collection, every design comes in three distinct structures: Rewilding, dry back traditional LVT; Individuality, loose lay thick LVT; and Visionary SPC rigid core. The same designs, including wood, linen, and stone visuals, are offered in multiple constructions so that the customer can select a look in the construction that best suits their needs, making it easy to find the right flooring for any contract space.
All vinyl plank and tile structures offer unique advantages that support commercial space requirements and installation preferences without sacrificing design. All offer a 20-mil commercial wear layer, as well as a 15-year commercial warranty. The coating on the plank and tile products also contains Cleantivity protection, which inhibits the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew, lowering maintenance efforts and costs.
AHF’s Vinyl Sheet line is designed for healthcare, education, and senior living – 2.0 mm gauge construction which provides a solid durable and stable floor and withstands heavy rolling loads. It is also environmentally responsible – 100% virgin vinyl, with no phthalates or heavy metals.
“Our team is ready to bring AHF Contract’s quality flooring solutions to our customers for their commercial, Main Street and property management projects,” said Larry Chandler, senior sales director, William Bird Commercial. “We are fully committed to supporting the line with deep inventory, product knowledge and marketing support.”
