    PRODUCT WATCH: A floor for tomorrow’s hotel

    Granorte’s Trendcollection makes the beauty, sustainability and performance of cork flooring accessible to today’s hotels. From traditional cork tiles right through to printed designs using the latest solid rigid core technology, it’s a formidable collection that brings cork right up to date…

    Nowhere is this better captured than in DESIGNTrend, a floor that combines the latest technology with cork’s natural, sustainable and renewable status.

    Through direct digital print and a textured WEARTOP finish, DESIGNTrend brings the look and feel of wood with the ease of LVT without cutting down trees or containing any plastic.

    Updated for 2020 with new looks, DESIGNTrend uses proven Uniclic joints for fast and easy installation, just like any laminate or click LVT, but also features a high-density natural cork composite wear layer and 1mm cork base layer for a warmer and quieter home. Treated with Microban® anti-bacterial protection, DESIGNTrend provides homes with a floor that’s not only easy to live with and kinder on the planet, but more hygienic too.

    Paulo Rocha, product and R&D manager, Granorte, says: “Cork is a great material to work with, with numerous applications, and is certainly a material that resonates with today’s homeowners. Cork is no longer just about the ‘old fashioned’ glue-down tiles of old, it is a material that offers genuine benefits and designs that not only break convention but perhaps more importantly, fit with convention.

    “DESIGNTrend exemplifies cork’s adaptability with the wood effects made popular by LVT and laminate, but without using any plastic and bringing all the acoustic, thermal and sustainable benefits of natural cork. As a plus, there’s no compromises in fitting, performance or ease of living either.”

    DESIGNTrend is now available in 16 wood effects with oak in a wide-ranging palette of oak and the exclusivity of Larch Spice. Comfortable, quiet, warm, hardwearing, hygienic, telegraph-free and plastic-free; this is a collection made for today’s environmentally conscious hotels.
