COLLECTION Amtico has expanded its Signature 36+ collection of premium and safety Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) flooring to suit a variety of commercial applications, including healthcare environments.

The flooring’s toughened 1mm upper wear layer provides all the resilience and long-lasting properties that Amtico’s Signature collection is known for, while offering enhanced slip resistance for the lifetime of the product. Signature 36+ comprises 24 woods, nine stones, and three abstracts to help architects, designers, and specifiers create spaces that promote wellbeing and meet safety guidelines to help reduce slips, trips and falls.

Signature 36+ also contains an active ingredient which has been shown, under blind independent lab tests, to resist the growth of bacteria such as MRSA and E.coli throughout the useable lifetime of the floor – providing added peace of mind for healthcare environments.
