Mannington Commercial, a leader in in commercial floor covering, announced today the launch of Intersected. Working with global design leaders Corgan Associates, Mannington has reengineered LVT as Graphic Floor Tile, a forward-thinking design element crafted specifically for the corporate and retail markets. Uniting the thinking of modular carpet, the distinctive benefits of LVT, and sophisticated visuals – Intersected creates a new, beautiful, toolkit of parts.
LVT is the fastest-growing flooring category in the market today, yet has not been widely used in the corporate market, until now. Intersected brings all of the performance, durability, and low-maintenance benefits of LVT, but with real visual interest for spaces and limitless pattern combinations.
In fact, Intersected is so different from other LVT that Mannington is calling it “Graphic Floor Tile.” Intersected’s high-end, corporate designer-friendly approach to LVT, characterized by a sophisticated, unique texture and interplay of color. Integrated accents give designers the ability to customize with pops of color or subtle tones to create a look that perfectly captures the interconnected nature of today’s workplace.
The collection provides a high performance floor for high traffic commercial applications with a patented wearlayer that eliminates the need for polish and enhances long-term appearance retention reducing the overall total cost of ownership. It has the highest performing wearlayer in the industry, an aluminum oxide topcoat cured by an ultraviolet process that eliminates the need for polish, while enhancing durability, cleanability, appearance retention, and slip retardance.
Intersected has 4% rapidly renewable content. Minimum of 30% and up to 55% recycled content. Mannington has also announced that it is leading the closed loop recycling of post-consumer LVT. An EPD for LVT is available, and the collection is FloorScore certified for IAQ.
