SRG Apparel Headquarters, Whitefield, Manchester
Polyflor, the UK’s commercial and resident vinyl flooring specialist, has just announced a diverse range of its flooring products have been installed in the new state-of-the-art 40,000sqft head quarters of fashion house SRG Apparel, in Whitefield, Manchester. Over 750m2 Polyflor products were specified by Jenkins Design of Bury, and installed by Bramhall Flooring, including Expona Control, Expona Design, 2000PUR, Polysafe Arena and Modena PUR. Senior Interior Designer Louise Grimes from Jenkins Design, comments “my clients brief was to provide staff with an energetic working environment which would encourage creative thinking. We decided to specify Polyflor products as they offer fantastic on-trend design, whilst at the same time providing the necessary durability and safety.”
UK market leading retailers such as River Island, Next, Tesco, Asda and New Look to name but a few, assuring the head quarters will be exposed to a heavy footfall on a daily basis. Within the entrance hall a contrast of Expona Control in Warm Grey Concrete and Polysafe Arena PUR in Brushed Titanium was chosen, creating zonal areas throughout the first floor. Developed for use in commercial areas which receive a high level of traffic, Expona Control is the first flooring product to marry the design benefits of traditional LVT with safety flooring. Being HSE Compliant it also achieves 36+ in the pendulum wet test and 20 microns of surface roughness, guaranteeing the sustainability of slip resistance for the life of the product.
Expona Design in Aged Indian Apple was selected for the feature showroom due to its strong directional contrasts and eye catching level of detail which complemented the overall design of this highlight space. Developed to meet the demands of heavy commercial environments Expona Design incorporates a 3.0mm gauge with a 0.7mm wear layer and is perfectly suited to high traffic retail spaces. Expona Design is further enhanced with PUR, Polyflor’s exclusive and robust polyurethane reinforcement which is cross linked and UV cured to provide superior cleaning benefits.
All Polyflor flooring is 100% recyclable via the Recofloor recycling scheme and contains up to an average of 40% recycled content.
