The UK’s market leader in Luxury Vinyl Flooring, Karndean Designflooring, has seen record demand for its new Opus Enhance range within the healthcare sector.
Responding to calls from architects and designers for unprecedented slip resistance, Opus Enhance achieves a result of 40 plus in the Pendulum Wet Test.
Ideal for use in a variety of healthcare settings, the enhancement to the PU coating allows for added grip without compromising on aesthetics.
The collection features the most popular designs from Karndean’s commercial Opus range.
The 6 planks and 2 large format tiles ensure a good spread of different colour palettes.
From the striking black washed, wood grain effect of Carbo, to the weathered wood appearance of Magna, these on-trend designs will add a contemporary twist to any project.
The two stone effect tiles, Urbus with its stormy mix of light and mid grey tones and the warm earthy tone of Terra, make for a versatile backdrop.
The combination of plank and tile choices allow for enhanced design capabilities and the use of zoning. Specifiers have looked to incorporate sweeping curves, rug effects and borders around key areas of interest.
It is predicted that as space becomes a premium this trend will continue to grow. With designers looking to create seamless integration to define an area without the requirement of a physical divide LVT offers versatility.
Fully HSE compliant, Opus Enhance offers the same intricate detail as the successful Opus range with all the planks achieving an R12 rating.
Care homes, health care settings and areas with direct access to the outdoors can all benefit from the increased underfoot safety.
“We are extremely proud of Opus Enhance,” explains Paul Barratt, managing director of Karndean Designflooring.
He said: “We wanted to offer a market leader in slip resistance without compromising on the intriguing designs Karndean is known for.
“It has allowed us to reposition this collection as our most commercially versatile, and also offer the design community inspiring designs for future commercial projects.”
Opus enhance comes with a 12 year commercial guarantee.
