Heavy commercial luxury vinyl tiles in stunning wood effects from Polyflor’s recently launched Affinity255 collection were chosen to give The Grand Hotel in Swansea a new look.
Two authentically reproduced wood plank designs from the Affinity255 range were installed by local flooring contractor DM Flooring and Tiling at the hotel in Swansea city centre which is part of the Great National Hotels group. Huckleberry Oak with intense grain detailing and surface texture was chosen for the hotel restaurant whilst the Smoked Walnut design with striking markings was used in corridors as well as in a herringbone design in conference rooms.
Michelle O’Rourke, General Manager at The Grand Hotel commented, “For our refurbishment we needed a practical yet attractive floorcovering that would enhance the look of the hotel but would also be easy to take care of. Our new Affinity255 flooring has really helped us transform our restaurant and conference suite.”
Developed for heavy traffic commercial environments such as the leisure sector where there are high levels of footfall, the durable Affinity255 collection features an eclectic mix of 16 authentically reproduced wood plank designs in a wide plank format, incorporating both traditional styles and contemporary trends.
The Affinity255 collection of heavy commercial luxury vinyl tiles was designed with a 2mm gauge so that they could be easily installed alongside other 2mm vinyl sheet flooring from Polyflor’s heterogeneous, homogeneous and slip resistant safety flooring ranges where different specifications of flooring need to be installed side by side. The cross linked and UV cured polyurethane reinforcement (PUR) also protects the floor and supports a simple cleaning regime for hygiene critical areas.
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 recycling scheme and contains an average of 40% recycled content.
Affinity255 samples can be ordered free of charge on the Polyflor website or by calling the Polyflor Samples Direct Hotline on 0161 767 2551.
