Malmo has added eight new Pressed Bevel plank designs to its Rigid Senses Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) flooring range. Suitable for a wide variety of applications including kitchens and bathrooms, the planks feature an eased bevelled edge, which enhances the appearance of the flooring to be even closer to real wood, while offering the practical benefits of increased water resistance and enhanced cleanability.
With the new designs, the bevelled edge of the flooring is formed by pressing down the surface layer into the joint during the manufacturing process, rather than cutting through it like painted bevel alternatives. This ensures the joint is completely water-tight, while the elimination of V-grooves means there are fewer places for dust to gather.
The new designs include whitewashed effects, warm greys, classic oak and rich brown tones to meet a range of consumer tastes. The flooring features the Valinge 5Gi click installation system, which provides tight joints, but like the standard 5G system it can still be installed by hand with no need for hammers or tapping tools. Like all Rigid Senses designs, the new decors offer a 1mm underlay and a wear layer of 0.55mm, with the overall thickness enhanced to 6mm. With a 25-year domestic use warranty and 10 years for light domestic use, the designs are available in plank sizes of 1244mm x 181mm.
Gail Alcock, product director for Malmo, said: “The addition of these eight new Pressed Bevel designs demonstrates the evolution and continued innovation within the Malmo brand, not just in providing new on-trend designs but enhancing the performance benefits of the flooring too.”
The Senses Pressed Bevel collection is part of the comprehensive Malmo Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) range, which now offers a choice of 65 designs across its Rigid and Stickdown formats. All products are available for 24-48 hour delivery from all IDS branches nationwide.
