A selection of Expona commercial stone and wood effect luxury vinyl tiles were used in the recent renovation work completed at Elverys Sports’ Bridgewater Store in Arklow, Ireland by Tom Walsh Flooring Contractors, Limerick and distributed from Provincial Floor Coverings.
Before laying the new floor, significant subfloor preparation was required including the removal of the existing floor covering consisting of porcelain tiles on the main shop floor and vinyl tiles in the back of house locations. Some walls were also removed to give a more spacious open appearance and 800m2 of new floor covering of Polyflor Expona commercial in cool grey concrete and bronzed salvaged wood.
Expona commercial was said to be the ideal choice as it is suitable for high traffic areas such as a store or commercial shopping area. The contrasting designs also allowed the contractor to highlight certain areas of the store positioning the wood planks around the tills and the cool grey concrete tiles to fill the rest of the area.
Tom Walsh from Tom Walsh Flooring Contractors, said: “The stylish, modern designs of both the concrete and wood finishes complement the interior design scheme perfectly. The properties of the product leave us confident that this flooring will provide the safety and assurance needed in a commercial environment for the lifetime of this product.”
