By | News | No Comments

COVID-19 has impacted the way we live our lives and also how we work together. The pandemic has presented a serious challenge for business returning to work forcing them to rethink their daily operations and how they can create a social distancing office design. Many businesses have already pivoted towards the new normal by introducing measures that will reduce the spread of this virus.

  • What are the challenges companies face when returning to the office?
  • How can the company make the office a safe environment for their employees to work?

The first stage of reopening the office will involve basic changes to keep employees safe and confident that they can return to their desk. Hygiene and sanitation will be at the heart of workplace planning. Employees desks will now represent a physical separation between colleagues and extra measures will be put in place to ensure the virus doesn’t spread. Here are some examples of the measures been undertaken by companies:

  • Social Distance Signage– Stickers are being integrated around the buildings to reinforce the message that keeping a social distance can help slow the spread of the virus.
  • Sneeze Guards/Screens – PVC screens are being assembled to protect employees and customers from saliva droplets, sneezes, or coughs.

Social Distancing Designs

Businesses around the world will be looking to implement social distancing measures around their office. What more can they do to ensure the health and safety of their employees by keeping a safe distance from each other? Companies will be searching for materials that can withstand heavy cleaning, easy-to-maintain and products which are durable.

Designing an office layout which ensures a safe distance between employees is here to stay! Scroll down below to see how your floor can do just that.

Heterogeneous Vinyl Tiles

Heterogeneous tiles meet these requirements for designing an office floor which creates social distancing while maintaining high levels of sanitation. The vinyl tiles will provide you with a baseline for a safer and more hygienic work environment which will be at the forefront of every companies mind.

  • Easy to clean and durable
  • Very hygienic because it is coated with a bacteriostatic layer

  • Perfectly suited for highlighting functional zones!

  • Create zones through different colours, shapes, or textures reassuring to their employees and customers to keep a safe distance from each other.

LayRed 55 is an innovative flooring collection which is acoustically high-performing, sustainable, and designed to stand its ground in the most extreme circumstancesA premium floor with an integrated underlay is perfect for both high foot traffic commercial applications and all of the challenges which are faced within a home such as uneven surfaces.

The Inspiration

The world’s population is growing rapidly and technology is transforming the way we live our lives. With this acceleration, there’s a demand for innovative products that are ahead of their time. People are becoming more consciously aware of what they are purchasing and placing more time and effort into researching products before buying them. Moduleo recognised these challenges and decided to create a product that overcame these problems. LayRed is moduleo’s first engineered floor that takes innovation in vinyl flooring to a whole new level.

The Innovation

LayRed 55 collection is the result of two years of extensive research by IVC research and development department. The challenge Moduleo faced were:

  • How do they develop a renovation-friendly floor without losing the extraordinary levels of comfort vinyl floors are known for?
  • How can they create a vinyl floor with the ability to bridge uneven surfaces on an existing floor avoiding the need to level it first?
  • How could they design a strong and rigid floor without losing the acoustic values their vinyl floors are known for?

Performance

  • Scratch and stain-resistant thanks to its PU Protective layer.
  • A plethora of designs to choose from which are all inspired by wood and stone.
  • Every plank has its own unique bevel which strengthens the look.

The upper layers of the plank combine their authentic designs with performance. The LayRed collection offers 31 in-house developed and printed designs, all inspired by wood and stone. Every design is extremely unique to ensure there is minimal repetition so there’s a floor for all your needs!

Comfort

  • LayRed is resilient making it softer than all engineered alternatives.
  • Improved insulating qualities keeping temperatures comfortable in all seasons.
  • LayRed reduces walking sound and transmission sound (-21db)

The middle layer ensures the soft feel and silent acoustics. LayRed is the quietest engineered vinyl floor produced to date. Silent acoustics is something that is extremely valued and with LayRed there will be no creaking sounds between planks or irritating click-clack sounds when walking over LayRed.

strength/icon/layred/55/collection/red/underlay

Strength

  • Indentation proof – upper layer ensure no dents from heels.
  • Stable in all conditions – no change in form due to alterations in temperature.
  • Perfect for uneven surfaces – LayRed has the ability to bridge gaps.

The integrated red underlay and the lower layers guarantee a rigid strength for LayRed which is in contrast to Moduleo flexible design floors. There is no need for levelling preparation anymore. Thanks to this innovative product there is no need to break up the old floor, you just put LayRed on top of it!

Moduleo Design Floors – Frequently Asked Questions

By | News | No Comments

Moduleo Design Floors – Frequently Asked Questions

GENERAL

What is a Moduleo design floor?

1) Protectonite PU: Extra Polyurethane (PUR) treatment protects the floor against scratches and dirt.
2) Wear layer: Transparent wear layer protects the design foil. The surface embossing provides an authentic and natural appearance.
3) Design foil: Wood and tile designs are applied to the design foil by means of an innovative printing technique.
4) Backing: Sound-proof base that provides optimal adhesion to the floor thanks to the refined texture of its underside. Is Moduleo® suitable for homes with pets?
Although our Moduleo® floors are highly scratch resistant, regular trimming of the claws greatly reduces the chance of scratch marks on the floor.

Can Moduleo floors be used with underfloor heating?

Moduleo® floors feel warm and comfortable because they quickly heat up to the ambient temperature. However, all Moduleo® vinyl tiles can be used on floors fitted with hot-water and electric underfloor heating, provided the top floor surface does not heat up to more than 27°C.

Are Moduleo floors suitable for people with allergies?

Very much so. A Moduleo® floor that has been optimally installed with a perfect finish is also easy to clean and has minimal dust adhesion. Dust mites and other allergy-causing organisms cannot survive on a well-maintained Moduleo® floor.
In order to maintain good hygiene, it is very important to use Moduleo® cleaning products, which do not contain wax or form layers on which dust can stick.

Are Moduleo floors resistant to moisture and water?

Moduleo® floors are highly moisture-resistant, making them ideal for installation in wet areas like bathrooms and kitchens.

INSTALLATION AND FINISHING

Can Moduleo floors be installed over existing floors?

Moduleo® floors can be installed easily on concrete floors and tiles, but careful preparation must be undertaken, including leveling and dust removal.

Can I have Moduleo on my stairs?

Yes, Moduleo® can be installed perfectly using step profiles, providing that steps are straight and not rounded.

Can I use office chairs on my Moduleo floor?

This is certainly possible, but take precautions to protect the Moduleo® floor.
1) Use soft wheels. They will dramatically increase the life of your Moduleo® floor and keep it looking beautiful for longer (they also increase seating comfort).
2) You can also place a modified transparent office chair mat under the swivel chairs.
3) Rubber can permanently damage the PVC design floor covering: avoid rubber furniture legs, rubber wheels or mats with rubber lining.

How can I keep my Moduleo floor looking new for many years?

Our Moduleo® floors, unlike some other types of flooring, are very easy to maintain. Cleaning is easy, with just an ordinary broom, microfibre cloth, vacuum cleaner or damp mop with approved detergents. It’s advisable not to use aggressive cleaning agents on your floor, to use steam cleaners or to let puddles of water to remain after cleaning.
The Protectonite PU finish of the wear layer eliminates the need for any special treatment after installation, but over time, an extra treatment with polymeric dispersion or a PU gloss polish may help if visible contaminations begin to develop.

Are Moduleo floors fire-proof?

All Moduleo® floors are tested as per the stringent European standard EN 14041. This standard also requires the testing of the reaction of the design floor to fire, among other things. The minimum value that must be achieved in this test is “E”. Moduleo® floors more than satisfy the same and all have been assigned a category “B” score.

What about Moduleo and static electricity?

All Moduleo® floors are antistatic as per the EN 14041 – CE marking. Annoying discharges on touching conductive objects are definitely a thing of the past. This also makes the floor ideal for offices, shops and other public areas.

What is Protectonite PU?

Protectonite PU is the unique protective layer that provides high wear resistance, ease of maintenance and the long-term guarantee. The Protectonite PU top layer ensures hardness, scuff and stain resistance, durability and offers excellent protection against chemicals. There is little chance of wear and tear due to heavy foot traffic or movement of furniture. The layer also provides for a natural satin finish, due to which the beauty of the designs and structures, are shown to their full advantage.

Can I install Moduleo in the bathroom?

Moduleo® is suitable for the entire house. Moduleo® floors are highly resistant to moisture, and thereby ideally suitable for installation in occasionally wet areas like bathrooms.

On what types of existing flooring can I install Moduleo?

Moduleo® floors can be installed onto wood, concrete, tile, plus soft and floating floors. However, for each material, careful preparation and planning is required.

MAINTENANCE

Can I clean my Moduleo floor with a steam cleaner?

The Protectonite PU protective layer of a Moduleo® floor makes it extremely easy to maintain. Cleaning with a steam cleaner is not necessary and we strongly urge you not to use it. Hot blown steam can cause distortion in the boards, and there is a higher risk of floor damage. The steam can also enter through the joints and dissolve the adhesive bonding, leading to the risk of boards becoming unstuck.

How can I best maintain my Moduleo floor?

Each Moduleo® floor is designed to last, but to ensure that it stays at its luxurious best for years to come, just follow a few simple regular routines. Cleaning is easy, with just an ordinary broom, microfibre cloth, vacuum cleaner or damp mop with approved detergents. It’s advisable not to use aggressive cleaning agents on your floor, to use steam cleaners or to let puddles of water to remain after cleaning.
The Protectonite PU finish of the wear layer eliminates the need for any special treatment after installation, but over time, an extra treatment with polymeric dispersion or a PU gloss polish may help if visible contaminations begin to develop.

Create the floor that is just right for you

Moduleo® Moods© is a creative studio where you can combine 10 creative and unique formats with a selection of stone and wood textures from our Transform and Impress ranges to create over 110 beautiful floor designs, from classically elegant to wildly dynamic, all with the signature Moduleo® quality.

TRIANGLE

The Triangle pattern is easily the boldest and most powerful flooring
pattern in our collection: the large angular shapes have a very strong
presence and dominant rhythm that will play a leading role in even the most expressive of interior spaces.

HERRINBGONE SMALL

The Herringbone Small pattern is one of the most successful flooring patterns ever created and dates back many centuries. The fact that it’s found in grand castles just as well as modern day family homes is a clear sign of the charm and diversity of this pattern. 

HEXAGON

The Hexagon Random pattern brings a level of sophistication to
any floor, and adapts very well to different types and sizes of spaces
because it doesn’t have a dominant angle or direction.

DIAMOND

The Diamond Origami pattern looks like a stylised flock of birds traveling across the floor in an abstract and gentle play of geometric lines and dynamic and angular shapes.

HONEYCOMB

The Honeycomb pattern is a modern recreation of a vintage classic: a traditional flooring pattern executed in contemporary textures and modern day high quality materials, this pattern is a playful and light-hearted way to add character to your interior.

STAGGERED COLUMNS

The Staggered Columns pattern combines the whole range of our rectangular planks with our coloured joint strips, resulting in a floor that combines a zen-like harmony with striking detail.
