AHF Introduces Armstrong Flooring Natralis
AHF Products, a leading manufacturer of hardsurface flooring for commercial and residential interiors, introduces Armstrong Flooring™ Natralis™ Commercial Homogeneous Vinyl Sheet, a bold and innovative collection inspired by the breathtaking landscapes of North America and the mesmerizing “spot” patterns found in nature.
“Flooring is increasingly at the forefront in the decision-making process, and Natralis is a true problem solver,” said Fred Reitz, Senior Vice President-Commercial. “It is incredibly durable, easy to clean, low maintenance and meets high performance criteria for applications such as healthcare, senior living, education, and hospitality.”
Its true through-pattern provides even wear, a consistent appearance and superior gouge and abrasion resistance to withstand heavy foot and rolling load traffic. Because it is easy to push, pull, and roll heavy equipment and furniture across this floor, it is ideal for high-traffic commercial settings. Plus, the high-performance coating resists soil, stains, scratches, scuffs, and abrasions, as well as chemicals and damage from alcohol-based hand sanitizers.
The exciting and extensive color palette gives the customer selections that meet both the practical and aesthetic requirements of commercial environments. The design offers flexibility. Inspired by compelling "spot" patterns found in the natural world, the design team elevated the visual to new heights with the addition of dynamic "speckles." The Natralis™ collection is a masterpiece of design and craftsmanship. The warm and cool neutrals, combined with earthy tones and pops of vibrant colors, draw inspiration from the beauty of natural life and landscapes, creating a space that is both serene and invigorating. The result is a design that is both breathtaking and authentic, highlighting the stunning beauty of North America's landscapes.
“At its core, the collection is an ode to the power of nature and its ability to transform any space into a work of art. The enduring and timeless nature of the floor’s design means the floor’s lifespan is extended when designs remain relevant for a prolonged period —and a long service life is a key driver to sustainability,” said Principal Commercial Designer Oxana Dallas.
Versatile and adaptable, the Armstrong Flooring™ Natralis™ collection from AHF can be used to create any ambiance, from serene and restorative to playful and whimsical, and even to sleek and modern. The floor is designed to coordinate across the Armstrong Flooring™ Continuum™ Solutions, meaning that different designs and structures will work seamlessly throughout a facility, providing specifiers with infinite design possibilities and unrivaled flexibility using a wide range of award-winning products.
