Heavy commercial Expona Flow PUR sheet vinyl flooring from Polyflor was recently installed in the School of Life Sciences building at the University of Nottingham to help create a striking break out area for students to relax, work and grab a snack in between lectures.
Around 300m² of Expona Flow high design vinyl flooring was installed by local flooring contractor Derbyshire Floorcraft Ltd in the Life Sciences building’s vending machine lounge. The bold and graphic Firelight design was chosen from the Infinity collection within the Expona Flow product range by main contractor Petric Contracts. This abstract design gives the effect of endless wood, featuring contrasting warm orange and cool blue tones in a linear design which perfectly complement the newly refurbished lounge’s dark blue walls and orange furniture.
The Estates department at the University of Nottingham commented, “We’re really happy with the finished look that has been achieved in the Life Sciences vending lounge with help from Expona Flow flooring. The design has an energy and vibrancy which we hope our students will enjoy and will help motivate them during a long day of lectures.”
Manufactured in the UK, the Expona Flow PUR collection of heterogeneous vinyl flooring features 50 wood, stone and abstract designs in a 2 metre sheet format and 2mm gauge for heavy commercial environments including the education sector. This durable vinyl floorcovering is also enhanced with PUR, Polyflor’s exclusive and robust polyurethane reinforcement which is cross linked and UV cured for a simple polish-free maintenance regime and superior cleaning benefits.
Expona Flow’s environmental credentials are impressive, achieving a BRE A+ rating for major use areas in the education sector and Indoor Air Comfort Gold, assuring that VOC emissions are below any globally determined levels. It is also 100% recyclable via the Recofloor recycling scheme and contains recycled material.
