Design-led manufacturer and designer of luxury vinyl tile flooring, Amtico, prides itself on creating innovative flooring solutions to meet the creative needs of interior designers, architects and specifiers.
When specifying flooring for hotels, restaurants and bars, the requirements for design and individuality will often be determined by whether the end result should be consistent or creative.
A national hotel chain will most likely be looking for smart and long-lasting flooring that delivers uniformity across its portfolio. A boutique one-off development, however, will be more open to individuality, seeking innovative flooring ideas that make a statement.
Within Amtico’s luxury vinyl tile collections, these diverse requirements are both well catered for. With 50 years’ experience in developing design-led flooring collections for commercial sectors, Amtico has the choice in colour, material, texture and design that interior designers, architects and specifiers expect.
Take Amtico Signature, the company’s flagship LVT collection, for example. Designed and made in Britain, this collection is all about creativity and providing endless design opportunities. By combining Amtico Signature’s 188 products with 31 laying patterns – some of which are unique to Amtico – an infinite number of inspirational design floors can be created.
And for hospitality and leisure developers with aspirations for truly original bar concepts or particularly eye-catching hotel foyers, the Amtico Signature motifs and borders can really bring a venue to life.
Design innovation is matched by functionality and quality. Amtico Signature’s thick 1.0mm wear layer is durable, its high-quality surface treatment helps prevent against scuffs and stains, and the commercial product warranty that accompanies the collection is 20 years against wear-out.
Moving on to consider the flooring requirements for national chains, where consistency, functionality and efficiency are key, and this is where Amtico Access comes into its own.
Specifically designed for single product or product combination application in projects that need a speedy installation, Amtico Access is a contemporary loose-lay vinyl flooring that can be fitted without a permanent adhesive. Quick and easy to install, a new floor can be put down overnight and be ready to walk on the next morning.
Because tiles are non-permanent, they can be easily lifted, either to be replaced or to give access to underfloor utilities, and the tile’s 5mm thickness means the product can be overlaid straight onto many subfloors, saving time and money on preparation.
Demand for versatile loose-lay vinyl flooring in commercial sectors is on the increase, and Amtico’s in-house design team has been developing inspirational new products to enhance the collection. These 19 additions, launched in October, bring the total range choice to 43, with introductions including brighter colours and light-cool tones across the range, stylish and sophisticated design woods, and a stronger abstract palette.
