Access versatile new flooring designs
Demand for loose lay vinyl flooring in the commercial sector has increased in the past five years. Our in-house design team continually looks for inspirational ways to enhance our loose lay vinyl collection, Amtico Access, through the introduction of new colours, textures, tones and design styles. We’re excited to say that this month we’re launching 19 new additions, making a total of 43 Amtico Access products in the range.
Amtico Access provides a contemporary flooring option for commercial spaces, with design styles available across wood, stone and abstract. The collection offers scope for single product application or for product combination to achieve clever zoning of spacious, open-plan interiors. The versatility of these new products can be seen here in this striking product combination using wood and stone designs. The rich and warm Exotic Walnut planks add depth and character to a quirky workspace, balanced by the soft and neutral Riverstone Tundra tiles.
Loose lay is known for being a practical option in most commercial sectors, but it does offer significant benefits for office, retail and hospitality projects in particular. Its loose lay nature makes it really quick to install without the need for a permanent adhesive. Because the fix isn’t permanent, tiles can easily be removed and replaced, or lifted to provide access to underfloor utilities before being neatly repositioned. This is just one of the reasons why our Amtico Access loose lay vinyl flooring is ideal for office environments where the reorganising of desks always means a re-jig of the phone wires and broadband cables tucked neatly away under the floor. And for retail, it’s all about speed of installation: a new floor can be put down overnight and ready to walk on the next day, so no need to close the store and lose a day’s trading.
Another commercial attraction of Amtico Access is the tile’s 5mm thickness meaning it can be overlaid straight onto many sub-floors or hard floors, saving time and money on prepping the floor – a real advantage for accelerated project timescales.
Additions to the Amtico Access collection include a choice of light-cool tones, to meet the need for good Light Reflectance Values (LRV) in office environments, and new stylish and sophisticated design woods. The enhancements also deliver more variation in colour, and brighter colour options, throughout the collection and a stronger abstract palette to add impact and a point of difference to commercial floors. Here you can see two of these new visually sophisticated abstract designs – Equator Wave and Organza Weave – at their best. By intersecting stepped zones, a beautiful and individual statement can be made in a retail space.
As well as being a practical non-permanent flooring solution, Amtico Access bring acoustic benefits to commercial environments, is easy to maintain and is backed up by a 10-year commercial warranty against wear-out.
