Commercial flooring specialist Polyflor Ltd has launched a strong range of decorative rubber floorcoverings in a move aimed at further strengthening its leading position in the resilient flooring market.
"Rubber satisfies current market demands in three key areas – design trends, customer choice and outstanding durability," says Polyflor marketing manager Simon James. "Our new Saarfloor rubber collection – coming up alongside our established Noppe Stud Tile rubber range – responds directly to these demands and is a natural complement to our vinyl portfolio.
"We now have a total of five rubber ranges suitable for a broad range of applications from high street retail stores, offices, healthcare, hotels and leisure facilities to the more traditional heavily trafficked areas such as airports and rail and bus station concourses."
The new Polyflor Saarfloor rubber collection comprises three decorative sheet products – 2mm gauge Diamant, Uni and Star – and a range of 3.5mm gauge slate effect tiles.
Saarfloor Diamant features an embossed surface and multi-coloured chip/stone decoration in 16 colours. Saarfloor Uni and Star also feature embossed surfaces, the former offering a choice of 12 single colour shades, the latter available in 12 new non-directional duotones. Saarfloor Slate 500mmx500mm tiles are available in six colours.
In addition to outstanding durability, the Saarfloor rubber collection is cigarette burn resistant, soft underfoot for improved ergonomics and has excellent acoustic properties, its natural elasticity giving greater impact sound reduction.
