EDITOR’S VOICE


Hello and welcome to the December issue of Tomorrow’s Contract Floors.


As we approach the end of the year, many of us look forward to a well- deserved break and some time off with family and friends. However, the Christmas shut-down period can also provide the perfect opportunity to carry out essential workplace refurbishments. With this in mind, we feature a wealth of advice on the specification and aftercare of a range of floorcoverings.


In our Marble, Stone & Terrazzo feature we hear from the experts at the Stone Federation on why natural stone should be top of the list when specifying with sustainability in mind. Then, Stone Consultant Robert Merry outlines how to properly choose, care for and maintain your stone floor.


In our Public Sector focus, Elizabeth Butcher at Tarkett, looks at how advances in material technology are leading to greater design possibilities for safety flooring so it’s easier than ever to create positive environments in education and healthcare settings.


Finally, we shine the spotlight on Entrances and Front of House where COBA Flooring’s Danielle Cooke discusses how companies can make an excellent first impression by getting creative with their entrance matting.


And if you’re heading over to Hannover for DOMOTEX in the new year, then you won’t want to miss our preview on page 30 where we give you access to an exclusive code for free entry.


As this is the final issue of 2019, I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you a merry Christmas and I look forward to welcoming you back in 2020!
