Dur-A-Flex Inc., a leading manufacturer of commercial, industrial and institutional seamless, resinous floor systems, has released a new line of decorative vinyl chips to be used with its flooring systems.
Earthstone blends offer a color palette made up of neutral-colored vinyl chips designed to achieve a stone-like appearance. These new color options are being introduced with a focus on the healthcare market to provide architects and facility managers with healing options when looking for a durable, seamless floor system for areas such as hospital corridors and patient rooms.
“While seamless floor systems have long been a popular option for healthcare facilities where durability and sanitation are of the utmost importance, we’ve now taken our offerings a step further,” says Dur-A-Flex Vice President of Marketing, R&D and Procurement David Hughes. “Our floor systems have always provided healthcare facility managers the peace of mind of knowing that no bacteria or moisture could penetrate their floor. We’re now further extending our design options so that our floors will not only protect the patients, yet also aide in their healing process.”
“Studies have shown that a theme incorporating nature allows patients to feel a connection to the world outside the walls of their hospital room.” says Dur-A-Flex Design Center Manager Maura Doyle. “By incorporating a stone aesthetic with our new Earthstone line we’re merging a nature theme with healing color tones–an ideal combination to create a healing environment.”
Dur-A-Flex’s Earthstone chip blends are available in 9 standard blends that can be installed with any of Dur-A-Flex’s seamless flooring systems. These new colors are available for order immediately and samples can be ordered by visiting Dur-A-Flex’s website at www.dur-a-flex.com.
