Amtico social distancing & wayfinding

Amtico has created a range of specialist floor designs in response to the demand for social distancing and wayfinding solutions, following the latest Coronavirus guidance and easing of restrictions in certain spaces. The planks and tiles can be easily slotted into existing Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) flooring, or incorporated as part of a new scheme.

The range is produced using Amtico’s flagship Signature collection, utilising its precision-cut capabilities, creative flexibility and premium finish. The 11 designs are available in vibrant Napoli (yellow) and Shimmer Metal (grey) to capture attention, as well as a fully customisable bespoke offerings to fit individual project briefs and requirements; for instance, custom colours (pictured below), sizes and messages. The designs fully support specifiers, contractors and facilities managers requiring temporary or long-term solutions where tape or other short-term, low-footfall measures are not an option or visually acceptable.

As lockdown eases and social distancing looks set to become part of ‘normal’ UK life, Amtico has developed the floor designs to not only assist companies returning to work by promoting responsible behaviours, but also establish permanent wayfinding schemes and define movement in environments such as retail, offices, and healthcare. The LVT planks and tiles are supplied fully formed and require no assembly to ease installation on-site.

The 11 new designs include messages from ‘Be Safe Please Practice Social Distancing’ and ‘Please Wait Here’, to ‘This Way’, and ‘Stay Safe Stand Back’. The tiles are available in 457.2 x 457.2mm sizes and planks come in 114.3 x 914.4mm as standard. The range can be specified for bespoke floors in alternative colours, sizes and messages to meet project requirements – for example, incorporating plank designs into a laying pattern, or scaling the text to suit different sizes.

“We understand and recognise the challenges faced by specifiers, designers and facilities managers as we find a new ‘normal’. With measures such as social distancing likely to be around for some time, we have developed a range of floor designs that encourage responsible behaviour, with messages that will last long after restrictions have been lifted. By introducing the new floors, Amtico has once again demonstrated its commitment to its commercial partners, and provided a product to suit all their specification needs.” Louisa Eyles, Commercial Marketing Manager at Amtico

Amtico Signature is designed and manufactured at the company’s Coventry factory. The collection comprises a unique laying patterns, extended palettes, and a 1mm wear layer – the thickest of any LVT on the market.
