Council see the Attraction in Gerflor

Public Sector Mon, Jul 30, 2018 10:42 AM

Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council BC approached international flooring specialist Gerflor to supply 20m2 of their fast track GTI Attraction in ‘Moheli’ for a trial area.

The requirement was for a hard wearing, durable, and heavy traffic resistant flooring solution for their apartment block corridors that is easy to maintain and without the high maintenance costs.

In addition, Dudley MBC wanted the flooring to be loose laid to keep sections of the area open and to minimise the time and cost of installation. Gerflor’s Attraction range was hugely beneficial to Dudley MBC as it can be lifted individually tile by tile and replaced if damaged without lifting the entire floor.

Dudley MBC also liked the convenience of the Attraction product packaging for transportation and minimising the issues of their warehouse space.

Gerflor’s Attraction range is a perfect solution for renovation, it is a fast track loose lay vinyl tile with inter-locking edges which allows for rapid installation and replacement. This permits the area to remain open and provides a clean installation with no adhesive or dust. A two-person team can install up to 200m² in 8 hours that is four times faster than conventional tiles and can be installed on a sub floor with minimal preparation.

With a Protecsol 2 surface treatment it requires minimal maintenance and is a highly durable solution suitable for heavy traffic applications in a host of sectors.

There are 15 colour-ways and 3 designs which allows you to mix and match colours and designs.

The Attraction range when compared with alternative flooring such as ceramic tiles delivers 19 dB less noise and when users walk on it underfoot comfort reduces fatigue. With excellent slip-resistant properties and a R10 rating it’s a popular choice for high traffic areas. Attraction is 100% REACH compliant, is free of formaldehyde, heavy metals, solvents and has 80% recycled content.

It also delivers TVOC emissions 100 times better than norm requirements (TVOC < 10 μg/m3 after 28 days) and is Floorscore certified, M1 certified and complies with AgBB protocol with no formaldehyde emissions.

Aziz Ahmed, Building Surveyor, Dudley MBC commented: “The Gerflor flooring looks great and seems very hard- wearing, which is perfect for the communal areas of our low and high-rise blocks. Residents are very pleased with the installation time as it was completed within a day.

"We have specified the Gerflor Classic Imperial range for about six years for our kitchens and bathrooms, and their Tarasafe Ultra H20 for the past 18 months for our wet rooms. We needed something that was very robust, easy to clean and installed with minimum disruption. The Gerflor Attraction range ticked all these boxes.”
