Chicago—Mannington Commercial, a leader in flooring for commercial interiors, has won Best of NeoCon Gold and Silver awards and an Honoring Industry People (HiP) award. The company received the Gold award in the Healthcare Flooring category for its Divergent modular carpet and Divergent LVT companion collections. The Infused collection of LVT captured NeoCon silver and the HiP award.
Inspired by nature and designed for a variety of healthcare, retail, hospitality and corporate applications, the Divergent line of carpet complements and completes Divergent LVT launched in April 2016. Divergent LVT is available in 18 x 18 and 18 x 36 formats, while carpet is available in 18 x 36 planks. The cohesiveness of the two Divergent collections is more than visual: Mannington’s Seam+Advantage can chemically weld the LVT and carpet together, creating seamless transitions without transition strips.
Made with renewable materials and pre-consumer content, Divergent LVT is finished with Quantum Guard HP, the highest performing urethane for greater scratch and stain resistance and enhanced slip retardance. Divergent carpet is manufactured Econyl 100% regenerated nylon 6.6 for superior stain resistance and appearance retention. Both lines can be reclaimed and closed-loop recycled through Mannington’s LOOP.
Designed by OneGlobal—a network of principal-led design firms in 18 cities across North America—the Innovative collection is a modern interpretation of LVT consisting of five patterns created to be mixed and remixed so that it matches the vision of any designer. Each pattern is available in 9 x 9 and 2.5 x 36 formats with a 20 mil wear layer for affordability and durability. The collection is manufactured using patented Quantum Guard HP, an aluminum oxide top coat cured by an ultraviolet process that enhances scratch, stain and slip resistance. It is available with Mannington’s advanced underlayment technology, which meets or exceeds all IIC sound requirements. While applicable to any market segment, the Infused collection is especially well suited to retail, hospitality and corporate.
The Best of NeoCon competition is sponsored by Contract magazine, Merchandise Mart Properties, The International Interior Design Association (IIDA), The International Facility Management Association (IFMA), and The McMorrow Reports for Facilities Management.
