Spring has finally sprung! The sun is shining, trees are budding, snow is melting. It’s beautiful outside but, unfortunately, this is also the season where slush, muddy water, and grit gets tracked through our offices and commercial buildings.

It’s safe to say that while most of us are happy to be back at the office, cleaning the floors and entryway multiple times each day is not something to look forward to.

If you can relate, keep reading. Here is our list of top commercial flooring choices for high traffic areas that will save you time and money no matter the season.

Luxury Vinyl Tile

Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) is a top modern choice if you are aiming for visual appeal and environmental sustainability. Did you know that all of our pieces are carbon-neutral? Our sleek and visually appealing vinyl flooring is also environmentally friendly.

Apart from being a green choice, LVT is extremely versatile. Our LVT is the same height as our carpet tile so you can seamlessly transition from one to the other. This allows us to create a unique floor design moving from a hard to a soft surface through the space. It’s also easy to create a unique space by mixing and matching different vinyl tiles to create a look that appeals to you and your consumers. Try our slip-resistant flooring with ceramic bead coating for a safe and long-lasting space.

Carpet tiles

You might be thinking: “Carpet? In a commercial environment?” We can assure you that our carpet tile flooring is both durable and modern. Not only is carpet tile easy to clean, it also makes for a comfortable feel in your commercial spaces. Rather than stepping foot into a waiting room with cold linoleum floors, visitors to your space are welcomed by a cozy and clean environment.

In addition to doing its job in covering the floors, one of the biggest advantages to carpet tile is that it absorbs sound. Carpeting the boardroom has always been in style, but using carpet tile in open-concept workspaces is ideal for muting sounds and improving productivity. Your staff will thank you.

Our carpet tiles are also a great sustainable option for office flooring. Made of recycled fishing net fibres with 100% recycled and recyclable backing. It also comes with a full coverage warranty for commercial applications and is easy to repair and replace.

Rubber Floor Coverings

This option will put a spring in your step! Our rubber floor coverings are made in Germany from high quality rubber composites engineered in Europe. When we tell you it is easy to install, we aren’t exaggerating. Our pieces have self-adhesive backings and do not require finishings. Rubber floor coverings are low-maintenance which makes them the ultimate choice for efficiency.

Contrary to popular belief, rubber floor coverings are not only suited for classrooms and fitness centres. Rather, they can be found in many public buildings and industrial environments including industrial kitchens, warehouses, and auto shops. Any space can benefit from the ergonomics and durability that rubber floor coverings allow for.

Vinyl Sheet Flooring

Looking for a seamless installation? Vinyl Sheet Flooring is the ideal option for larger spaces, such as hospitals and clinics. Vinyl sheet flooring is easy to clean and extremely durable for high-traffic areas.

In addition to its durability and versatility, Vinyl Sheet is cost-effective. Expect this floor to serve you for years before you even have to think about replacing or repairing your floors, and the long-lasting warranties will keep your peace of mind. Vinyl Sheet is also stain resistant and easy to clean. Most importantly, it’s slip-resistant, allowing for a safer space for staff and visitors.
