COVER STORY OBEX ARX HD: A NEW


GENERATION OF ENTRANCE FLOORING SOLUTIONS


Milliken’s new OBEX ARX HD range aims to provide an entrance flooring solution


that is functional, without forsaking design, and which can provide that first line of defence against the elements that a building needs.


While a lot of time and effort is spent deciding on the interior décor and flooring of a building, the entrance is often overlooked and neglected. First impressions are vital, and there is nothing more damaging to this first impression than a dirty and slippery floor.


The Need For Entrance Flooring Up to 90% of the soil entering a facility is walked in through the front door, which can result in several kilos of dirt brought in per day (Rain can double or even treble this amount). When approximately 40% of a maintenance budget is allocated to floor cleaning, and we know that efficient matting can save up to 65% of the cleaning costs dedicated to floors, it makes sense to choose your entrance flooring solution very carefully.


Milliken’s aim is to provide a complete entrance flooring solution that helps you to protect your floors and keep them safe; saving on future floorcovering replacement costs and considering aesthetics and design. A mat shouldn’t be an afterthought of building design, but a key functional and aesthetic consideration.


ZONE 1 - OUTDOORS: The area just before the building access - requires a product with scraping action to remove grit and heavy dirt particles, as well as the draining of rain when exposed to the elements.


ZONE 2 - INDOORS: The primary area just inside the building - requires a product with dual action for dirt scraping and moisture retention, to prevent floor contamination. This area often features a recessed mat well.


ZONE 3 - INDOORS: The secondary area inside the building - after Zone 2 - requires a textile product for moisture retention. This is also applicable to circulation areas within the building.


Milliken’s OBEX product range offers highly-effective, comprehensive, modular entrance solutions specifically designed as a three-zone barrier system to help facilities managers and building owners maintain clean and safe floors.


Zone 1 & 2: ARX HD - Prior, Tergo And Forma First invented and patented by Milliken OBEX, the ARX collection features an ultra-durable interlocking modular system made of UV resistant and recyclable PVC, combined with high performance textiles to deliver functional and aesthetically-pleasing entrance flooring solutions.


The innovative ARX HD product line is the second generation of this unique concept based on modularity, function, design and ease of installation on site, providing a quick delivery for last minute requirements.


The ARX HD collection consists of three products: Prior, Tergo, Forma, which are all offered in both 11 and 16mm thicknesses to meet all architectural requirements for installation in recessed mat wells or surface mounting on the floor, with open or closed construction for outdoor and indoor installations.


• Prior is a flexible multi-purpose modular flooring product with a structure that incorporates resilient scrapers to remove particulate dirt. The grid structure of Prior is made of UV-resistant PVC that can resist temperatures between -30°C and +50°C. It incorporates resilient scrapers to remove heavy dirt particles, with a choice of open construction for drainage or closed structure for dirt storage.


A Complete 3-Zone Concept Solution For the best protection against the outdoor elements, public spaces and commercial buildings can benefit from a three-part entryway system. Depending on the size of the area, this system ensures that there is at least 25 feet of walk-off distance, which prevents dirt and moisture from entering the building.

• Featuring the same ultra-durable interlocking grid system as Prior, Tergo modules include heavy-duty, solution- dyed textile inserts made from 100% Econyl®


polyamide


monofilaments to provide a strong brushing action. Tergo provides a powerful first line of defence and stops dirt and dust before it enters the building.
