Hard wearing luxury vinyl tiles from Polyflor‘s Affinity255 PUR collection of high-design wood effect flooring were recently chosen for the refurbishment of Enfields Kitchen, a student-run restaurant at Gateshead College.
Affinity255 PUR luxury vinyl tiles in the popular Huckleberry Oak design were installed by local flooring contractor Floorstyles-Direct in the restaurant’s dining area. Situated at Gateshead College’s Baltic campus, Enfields Kitchen is a contemporary restaurant where all the food is made and served by students enrolled in the college’s hospitality and catering courses to give them experience of running a real restaurant as part of their training.
“We’re so happy with the results of the refurbishment and Polyflor’s Affinity255 flooring has helped us create a contemporary restaurant interior,” says Tracy Ashcroft, Assistant Principal at Gateshead College. “It’s the perfect setting to showcase the talents of our college’s young chefs to the public.”
Ideal for use in heavy commercial environments such as busy restaurants, the Affinity255 collection of luxury vinyl tiles in available in 16 striking wood effects. The range’s cross linked and UV-cured polyurethane reinforcement (PUR) also protects the floor and allows for a simple, polish-free cleaning regime in hygiene critical areas.
With an innovative 2mm gauge, the Affinity255 range has been designed to be easily installed alongside other flooring products such as Polyflor’s heterogeneous, homogeneous and slip resistant safety flooring, which also have a 2mm gauge.
Polyflor’s Affinity255 range has impressive environmental credentials, achieving a BRE A+ rating in major use areas and Indoor Air Comfort Gold, assuring that VOC emissions are below any globally determined levels. Affinity255 is also 100% recyclable via the Recofloor vinyl take back scheme and contains an average of 40% recycled content.
