THE Malmo Freedom stickdown luxury vinyl tile (LVT) flooring is said to feature a slip-resistance aluminium oxide coating which provides what’s described as a safe, stylish floorcovering in nursing homes.
Available across the entire collection of 25 Malmo Freedom Stickdown designs, the aluminium oxide 0.55mm wearlayer increases the flooring’s slip-resistance to +36 PTV, making it low risk in wet areas. The surface coating, which doesn’t compromise the visual quality of the flooring, also provides an additional protective layer against potential scratches compared with a standard urethane layer alone.
The Malmo Freedom stickdown LVT flooring range also eliminates the need for expansion gaps, which can cause trip hazards from the trims used. This means the flooring can be seamlessly installed across large open areas, making it an ideal choice for environments used by people with reduced mobility such as nursing homes.
Gail Alcock, flooring director for Malmo says: ‘Our Malmo Freedom Stickdown LVT range is particularly suitable as a flooring for nursing homes. The Aluminium Oxide coating applied to the flooring gives vital prevention against slip accidents for residents and peace of mind to the nursing home staff. Often safety flooring can be seen as quite dull and limited in design but the Malmo Freedom range combines high performance specification with on-trend decors in large format square tiles, Moroccan tile effects, elegant woodgrains, and chic herringbone designs.’
The Malmo LVT range is distributed by International Decorative Surfaces, is available ex-stock from all of their nationwide branches for 24-48 hour delivery and is supported by a 25-year domestic wear warranty, with 10 years for commercial applications.
