Magnetised vinyl tiles from Karndean
Magnetised vinyl tiles
Karndean Designflooring working with IOBAC now offer a range of magnetised vinyl tiles, the flexibility option for retail and hospitality environments installing new flooring or replace an old one.
An IOBAC metallised floor surface is first laid before your chosen magnetised Karndean Designflooring tiles are dry laid on top.
Because the system works by magnetic field only, with no need for traditional adhesives, the whole installation process is much simpler with minimal disruption and decreased installation times.
The metallised coating is simply applied to the subfloor and dries in around 60 minutes, after which time the Karndean Designflooring tiles or planks can be put down.
Maintenance is just as simple as any other Karndean Designflooring floor, with an easy to follow cleaning regime to ensure the floor remains looking its best.
Flexibility is key to the IOBAC system, as some or all of the flooring design can be changed as regularly as needed; tiles can simply be lifted off should the retailer or facilities manager wish to change the colour, perhaps to reflect a new promotion, change in season or to bring a fresh lease of life to their overall scheme - something of particular relevance to clients maintain their image and individuality.
Despite the ease with which the whole floor or just a few tiles can be taken up and replaced with no subsequent damage, magnetised floors will not move by themselves when withstanding daily footfall.
In fact, the IOBAC system itself is guaranteed for 10 years.
In addition to the installation and aesthetic benefits of the IOBAC system, business owners can rest assured that this is also an environmentally sound flooring solution.
By fixing floor tiles without adhesives, IOBAC maintains a healthy working environment with no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the resin.
Furthermore, when it comes the time to change the floor, the discarded tiles are free from adhesive so they can removed, stored and cleaned for reuse rather than sent to landfill.
All of Karndean Designflooring's collections are available with the innovative IOBAC system, from the commercially focused Opus range to the newly refreshed Van Gogh real wood inspired products.
Paul Barratt, Commercial Sales Director at Karndean Designflooring, comments: "Retail and hospitality are the most demanding commercial environments and as such, installing or changing a new floor can be problematic.
With the IOBAC system, downtime is minimised so that the complete installation process is as swift as possible, with no need to close shop or facility for extended periods or blocking off areas of the floor for the refit.
'Our design floorcoverings have always been designed with the commercial environment and end user in mind, and now we can offer increased installation benefits and design flexibility so any look can be created for any amount of time.
We are very excited about the possibilities that this revolutionary magnetised flooring technology provides commercial flooring and are confident that specifiers and contractors will be too when they learn of the numerous benefits throughout the product lifecycle'.
