Gerflor GTI Max range
GERFLOR has produced a collection of what it describes as technically supreme high-end products for the industrial and scientific sectors. It’s an industrial shopping basket aimed at delivering durable flooring products that are claimed to perform to the highest standards, ‘but also look stunning’.
Gerflor’s GTI Max range is suited to various industrial applications with reportedly high resistance for extreme traffic. It’s also claimed to offer easy installation and maintenance for less disruption to the daily operation of the business.
It’s said to provide one of the best PVC heavy traffic flooring solutions in the marketplace and offers a truly fit-for-purpose product that delivers what’s claimed to be an easy, long-lasting renovation resolution for specifiers and contractors alike.
The GTI Max wearlayer is reinforced by specific oblong fillers that offer what are claimed to be outstanding resistance to traffic and is reinforced with two glass fibre grids on either side of an intermediate pressed homogeneous layer.
GTI’s backing is a 4mm thick black pressed homogeneous sheet and its surface is a coloured homogeneous sheet 2mm thick. GTI Max is said to be completely recyclable and is also made with up to 80% recycled content.
The GTI Max range, says Gerflor, provides a speedy renovation solution and can be installed over existing floorcoverings with minimal subfloor preparation, no adhesives and most important, no production stoppage with ‘no loss of revenue’.
It comes with the polyurethane surface treatment PUR+ for ease of maintenance and specifiers and designers can also benefit from mixing and matching colours to create corners and walkways using its modular tile format in 23 colour choices.
GTI Max is also said to be completely REACH compliant, Floorscore-certified, free of formaldehyde, heavy metals and solvents and manufactured in an ISO 14001 and ISO 50001 certified site.
Gerflor notes that GTI Max delivers TVOC emissions 10 times better than norm requirements (TVOC < 100 μg/m3 after 28 days).
Mipolam Elegance EL5 from Gerflor is a conductive flexible homogeneous vinyl floorcovering with carbon encapsulated granules and a conductive backing, ensuring what Gerflor describes as optimal consistent conductive properties and permanent antistatic properties. It’s also suitable for an increasing number of areas where static discharge can be a problem.
Treated with Evercare, it’s said to avoid staining of chemical products used in industrial facilities and requires no wax for life.
By combining the Mipolam range with its patented revolutionary Evercare surface treatment, Gerflor says it’s delivered a product that offers unparalleled stain resistance to chemicals (including iodine), ‘outstanding slip resistance in its field, astonishingly low maintenance and unique environmental credentials’.
Gerflor’s Evercare surface treatment is said to have bacteriostatic and fungistatic properties which ensure increased levels of hygiene. It’s also said to be completely recyclable.
The slip resistance performance with use of Evercare across the range has established that the flooring performed to more than ≥36 (wet) on the pendulum test, giving low potential for slips.
Evercare can provide up to 30% savings on maintenance costs by using less water and detergent.
With Mipolam there’s also no need for stripping and sealing with no necessity for using stripping chemicals and it doesn’t yellow.
Gerflor says it’s been supplying products into the life sciences sector for more than 75 years, together with delivering new, innovative solutions to meet the stringent demands of the market and its environments which encompasses pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, medical devices, together with research labs and the biotechnologies subsectors.
Gerflor’s GMP compatible cleanroom flooring solution Mipolam Biocontrol is claimed to be highly chemically and stain resistant. It contains anti-static properties providing what’s claimed to be great resistance to most bio-decontamination procedures.
Treated with a high-performance coating it is, says Gerflor, ‘extremely resistant to chemicals, highly resistant to scratching and can withstand very heavy loads’. Mipolam Biocontrol Performance is tested by the Fraunhofer Institute and complies with GMP Class A for microbiological cleanliness and provides ‘an excellent resistance to bio-decontamination procedures’, according to Gerflor.
Connect 2 Cleanrooms is claimed to be an award-winning industry leader, creating modular cleanroom solutions for critical environments, in the UK and internationally.
The company designs and manufactures panel, hard and soft wall cleanrooms inhouse and is said to deliver quality cleanroom solutions to meet the ISO 14644-1 standard required.
Darren Brackwell, operations manager, Connect 2 Cleanrooms said, ‘Gerflor provides fantastic solutions for Connect 2 Cleanrooms as they’re designed to minimise particle retention which is essential for all cleanrooms.’
