Over the past 525, 600 minutes, we’ve watched the world as well as our local community and our team adapt to a time that no one saw coming. 2020 certainly brought its fair share of dilemmas and curveballs, there’s no denying that. But, it also brought many things to light- in every industry, to every professional, at every level.
At Trinity Surfaces, we believe that how we respond to an obstacle is more important than focusing on the obstacle itself. So, rather than honing in on the damage done by the pandemic, we want to offer solutions- flooring solutions, that is. And, with respect to the current crisis, the flooring solutions we’ll focus on today are our top picks for commercial projects looking to make health and safety a priority.
First off, did you know that in 2018 more than 25,000 Americans were injured at work from slips, falls, and trips? Now, with the added pressure of sanitization to kill germs and bacteria, commercial projects are facing new demands for safety assurance. As 2021 kicks off, we recommend that every interior designer has a stockpile of quality products that are top-tier for health/safety.
You didn’t think we would give you that pro tip and not help you out, did you? Of course we are going to help! Instead of sifting through catalog after catalog, we made this list of our top picks for commercial gold when it comes to offering safety and health.
Let’s dig right in!
Trinity Tile Protect Collection
This line of high-performance antimicrobial wall and floor tiles was created specifically for healthy, safe, and protected living spaces. What makes this product so incredible is that the Microban technology is put directly into the ceramic during production. Unlike other products, these wall and floor tiles are self-activating and do not require UV rays to be protected. They also kill up to 99.9% of bacteria and sustain their high level of safety in between regular cleanings.
AVA Novalis LVT
Performing alongside frontline medical heroes, AVA’s surface solutions are known for their super low VOC emissions and long list of tough-as-nails certifications (FloorScore, Indoor Advantage Gold, GREENGUARD Gold). AVA’s flooring systems were built for the roughest jobs and they do not contribute to the spread of infections.
Capri’s Eco-Clicks Line
Made of natural cork, Eco-Clicks from Capri is a fantastic, healthy choice for a number of commercial projects. Cork is naturally antimicrobial, which makes it a serious contender for projects calling for extra safety. The team at Capri utilized the recent summer months to test Eco-Clicks and expand its safety profile. They found that after long-term testing, Eco-Clicks flooring actually destroys bacteria. Added bonus? With unique patterns and colors to browse, it is a line that every commercial interior designer can benefit from- with safety and style.
Trinity Tile Living Well Program
One of our most robust programs also boasts oodles of safety and health features. The Living Well Program was designed to be placed inside spaces where wellness is at the core. To make the cut for this catalog, the products had to meet a tough list of criteria: naturally calming, durable, health compliant, and with variety to boot.
As always, we are here to help. Whether it’s a deeper conversation about the healthiest choice for your commercial project or other suitable options, we’d love to connect. Contact us now and you’ll be directly linked with a Trinity Surfaces team member: 866-774-3390.
