Gerflor Wins Innovation Award
GERFLOR won Most Innovative New Product in social housing at the Housing Innovation Awards 2014 for its Easitex product.
Gerflor was also the only company with two shortlisted products in the category for Easitex R10 slip resistant loose-lay flooring, and Griptex Fibre Technology (GFT) flooring.
The results in the 16 categories were announced at an event in London hosted by architect and TV presenter George Clarke, who said: ‘Easitex is an innovative, ultra-thick, loose-lay flooring for domestic housing. It is both thermally and acoustically advanced.’
Shortlisted was GFT loose-lay flooring, claimed to be the first residential vinyl to R10 slip resistant standards. Its backing includes 97% recycled fibres while its patented, GripX slip resistant surface reportedly remains effective in both wet and dry conditions and does not trap dirt.
