Sleeping with Gerflor! Showcasing new innovations at Sleep Event 2015

This year’s Sleep Event in London’s Business Design Centre during November 2015 will see International flooring and interiors specialist Gerflor showcasing their top quality new collections dedicated for the hotel and hospitality markets. Including a stunning new range of Luxury Vinyl Tiles and Plank (LVT) products, together with a snapshot of their brand new leading-edge safety flooring Taralay Impression Control and also the credible SPM door, wall and corner protection systems including Decotrend.

Europe’s leading exhibition and conference for the hotel design, development and architectural community throws a spotlight on the global design community, where designers, architects, hotel owners, developers, operators and investors join to source and knowledge share, enabling the creation of stunning hotel environments. And it’s a stage where the Gerflor products on show will glow and shine very brightly.

With more than 70 years’ experience of being at the forefront of design-led development, Gerflor’s expertise in Luxury Vinyl Tile design and safety flooring development is unrivalled. The range of LVT and safety products on show this year from Gerflor offer a good glimpse of their ability to not only create stunning designs but to also provide a range of safety flooring products second to none.

Gerflor’s modern and contemporary trend concepts enable clients to create stylish interiors, enhancing the look and feel of their new or existing commercial building.

The Creation LVT collection is specifically designed for hardworking spaces and can boast a number of exceptional characteristics.

  • More than 90 extremely realistic wood and mineral finishes with a wide array of formats, grains and colours
  • A range of flooring distinguished by its aesthetic appeal, with bevelled edges on many of the planks and tiles for a realistic finish
  • Available with the unique CLIC and X’press systems Improved hygiene with low maintenance, thanks to a polyurethane surface treatment (PUR+)
  • Wear layer of 0.7mm, with an overall thickness of 2.5mm for added durability

And within Gerflors LVT ranges their unique CLIC and X’press products will also be making a strong showing at this year’s event.

The CLIC system uses a unique interlocking vertical CLIC assembly system that allows for fast loose-lay installation that can be laid with no adhesive and requires no heavy tools.

The X’Press system similarly offers a host of fast easy looselay options maximising on any downtime and is easy to replace and maintain on site. It’s decorative, flexible and available in tiles and planks with beveled edges.

The design of Taralay Impression Control is a perfect option for designers who are seeking to create a natural look whilst retaining the safety and durability factors that may need to be provided and comes with a host of benefits.
