The Malmo Freedom stickdown luxury vinyl tile (LVT) flooring range has undergone a major technical update, with an Aluminium Oxide coating now applied as standard across all décors to offer the slip resistance required for use in any commercial or domestic setting.
Applied across the entire collection of 25 Malmo Freedom Stickdown designs, the Aluminium Oxide surface coating increases the flooring’s slip resistance to +36 PTV, low risk in wet areas. The 0.55mm wear layer assures a safe floorcovering suitable for use in a variety of settings, and is also said to provide an additional protective layer against potential scratches compared with a standard urethane layer alone.
The range offers a variety of designs to suit all tastes. Decors span large-format square tiles, Moroccan tile effects, woodgrains ranging from warmer tones to cooler, neutral shades and herringbone designs. The flooring can be seamlessly installed across large areas without the need for expansion gaps, eliminating the trip hazards that trims can create. It also benefits from being sound absorbent and warm underfoot.
Gail Alcock, flooring director for Malmo, said: “The Aluminium Oxide coating applied to the Malmo Freedom Stickdown LVT range is usually reserved for safety flooring where design choice can be quite limited. We recognised an opportunity to offer a design-led flooring that is suitable for use in any environment, including those where the prevention of slip accidents is vital such as the care and hospitality sectors. We see it as part of our care in the community to offer the Aluminium Oxide coating as a standard feature rather than an add-on sale, providing additional peace of mind to our customers.”
The range is compatible with water-piped underfloor heating systems and is supported by a 25-year domestic wear warranty, with 10 years for commercial applications. The complete Malmo collection offers a total of 57 designs; 25 Freedom stickdown and 32 rigid, including the award-winning Senses range.
