Rapidly renewable biobased tile

Migrations biobased tile is made possible by Armstrong's Biostride polymer. Identical gauge allows easy use of Migrations in spaces where composition tile is used and no new maintenance training, equipment, or cleaners are required. Compared with conventional composition flooring, a 20,000-sf installation of Migrations saves energy and natural resources equivalent to 72 gallons of petroleum. Complies with LEED credits EQ4.3, MR4.0, and MR6.0 depending on location.

Durable and sustainable, Lonseal's heterogeneous sheet vinyl is composed of more than 35% pre-consumer recycled content. It is also low in VOC emissions and can contribute toward LEED points.

Heiko seamless flooring is also durable enough to support heavy traffic and withstand the weight of medical equipment.

New wood, old and weathered look

Berkshire five-inch-wide floors re-create the distressed characteristics of hardwood that originally served utilitarian purposes.

Planks feature character marks such as hammer dents and nail holes, as well as splits and filled knots.

Berkshire is available in walnut, cherry, maple, and hickory varieties and is just one of Columbia's line of "character" wood floors that feature the look and feel of weathered floors from different settings. Silverton has the look of a weathered ski lodge, and Hatteras, the feel and look of a southern beach house. Columbia and Century Flooring have earned both phase 1 and the more stringent phase 2 certifications from the California Air Resources Board (CARB) for their engineered hardwood flooring products.

Looks like the desert, feels resilient

Featuring a rubbed-in printed pattern that forms an inverted leather look, LonElements Sahara's textural allure is indicative of seemingly random tracks in the sand and satisfies both lustrous and understated visual appeals for interiors with broad design parameters.

Ideal for installation in corporate, hospitality, and retail spaces, Sahara's flooring sheets are 100 millimeters thick, making the surfacing easy to conform to any plane of a space. The added flexibility allows it to accentuate and complement curvatures of floors and corners.

Sahara can be selected and tailored to create many design possibilities for distinctive decor. Surface colors are available in eight tones of beiges, golds, and burgundies.

Sahara's protective first layer is easy to clean and provides maximum resistance in environments where there are increased abrasions, the surface's middle layer provides dimensional stability and sound-absorbing properties. Its bottom layer, which is molded to the backing cloth, provides stabilization. Sahara is rated Class B, in accordance with the National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA) 101 Life Safety Code.
