Super-realistic finish and variety of colors and textures

Gerflor’s new Creation collection offers a realistic and authentic feel, with four beveled edges and less repetition once the floor is installed, giving more naturalness to the space. This is thanks to its decorative film up to two meters wide compared to other standard floors where the decorative film is only one meter wide. In addition, its ultra-matte finish and crystalline wear layer give it a special color intensity.

The new Creation 2022 collection also expands its range of colors and textures by adding a variety of finishes: Natureland range, harmony of colors and noble materials such as stone taken from nature in its purest interpretation to bring the outdoor environment closer to the spaces where we live and work; Ultra Realism range, the perfect synthesis between visual and tactile perception with hyper-realistic designs of different wood finishes; Fusion range, hybrid materials that are created by fusing different components, such as the granularity of sand with wood chips, the silkiness of cotton with the scratched surface of concrete, etc. , to generate original and modern designs; the Timeless range, with the look of classic materials; and the Vintage range, evoking the aesthetics of previous decades that we find so refreshing today.

Easy-to-install multilayer LVT flooring

Gerflor’s new Creation flooring collection is a simple and quick to install flooring type, with great comparative advantages over other standard flooring types and adds more value, both structurally and technically.

The collection incorporates a new rigid clip system that has better performance features and is available in 2 options: Creation Solid Clic and Creation Rigid Acoustic (with built-in base) for improved comfort in daily use. This rigid reinforcement core has the same advantages as the elastic comfort core. This means that, while maintaining a high level of performance in terms of a pleasant feeling when walking on it and better acoustics in the room where it is installed, it offers – at the same time – greater stability, more robustness, better response to temperature changes, more resistance to scratches and a more effective response when installed on surfaces with certain underlay problems.

In addition, all the floorings of the new collection are suitable for any room or area, both in public and private spaces, have a great insulating capacity, an anti-slip system and are easy and simple to install.

The low maintenance cost differentiates Gerflor flooring, adding value to the construction system, being the best solution for, for example, renovation and refurbishment projects, but also for new construction projects or the so-called “construction 4.0”. The vinyl tile of Gerflor’s Creation 2022 collection is a heterogeneous multilayer floor covering with the following structure:

The assembly is pressed under high pressure and, as a result, the floor offers excellent dimensional stability. In addition, and in summary, these are the advantages and characteristics of Gerflor’s new CREATION floorings, which, among other aspects, also offer environmental improvements:

– They allow a 30% faster installation.

– They give the possibility of replacing a single slat or tile, without the need to change the entire floor if necessary.
