As specifiers look for more flexibility when choosing flooring options for projects, a combination of LVT and carpet tile is a popular choice. Bringing together the look of refined wood, stone and concrete in neutral and bright shades and tones, Shaw Contract’s new Loose lay LVT collection Unite turns demanding areas into beautiful spaces.
The Unite collection of 5 mm LVT can be installed next to most carpet tiles, with the benefit of no need for transition strips. This enhances a sense of flow and offers designers a choice for easy ways to accommodate different functional areas or moods.
The three styles in the Unite Collection also provide flexibility as they can be used alone or in combination to great effect. Cove, Inlet and Loch all bring a distinctive style to the floor and used together can also provide a range of new looks.
Within the Collection the three different styles can create different moods. The stone looks in Cove are available in six contemporary tones, whilst six exciting colours provide for pops visual contrast. Inlet provides realistic wood effects, adding visual interest, and works beautifully in combination with the colourful tones of Cove. Meanwhile Loch has six concrete tones which can provide a modern, calm feel for a space.
All styles and tones in the Unite Collection measure 100 cm x 25 cm with a 0.55 mm wear layer. With Unite’s ExoGuard™ finish more resistance to abrasion, staining and provided cleanability are offered, whilst with this polish-optional finish costs of annual maintenance can also be reduced. Loose lay LVT is also compatible with underfloor heating.
Unite is engineered for enhanced durability in high-demand environments - its dual purpose backing system allows the product to be installed as loose lay or adhered to the floor. Presenting the designers with a whole range of options, it is ideal for raised access flooring applications.
Meeting the growing trend for mixing flooring types to create zones within a floor plan, designers can use this LVT collection in combination or to work seamlessly with carpet tiles, creating unique installations.
Reducing the floor-to-floor impact sound transfer and softening in-room foot fall, Unite is the perfect collection for high-demand environments; corporate, education, healthcare, hospitality or retail sectors.
Office refurbishments can be challenging for specifiers working to demanding timescales and around working business hours. This makes Loose lay LVT a popular option, as is the case in retail too. Unite can be installed in several patterns including stagger and herringbone, so a sense of flow and interest can also be achieved quickly in these spaces, with minimal disruption.
