Aspecta, the new global leader in glued down luxury vinyl flooring, recently launched in South Africa at an incredible function in Sandton. Hosted at the Da Vinci hotel with support from the Pretoria Institute of Architects, the sell-out affair saw over eighty architects attend in addition to Traviata Flooring staff and media representatives. The official presentation was preceded by a walk-about in the Sandton precinct where Paragon Architects offered delegates an insight into the design features of a number of buildings they have been involved with over the years. At the lunch function, Donald Nase of Vertex International, the manufacturers of Aspecta, gave an introduction to his company. With innovation as its foundation and backed by over one hundred years of industry expertise, Vertex, who boasts almost 20% of global vinyl flooring sales, have launched their flagship flooring – Aspecta 5. Already launched in the USA and Europe, this new name in world flooring is already redefining the standards for quality, design and service. Aspecta is a dry back LVT range where the difference is in the detail. This 3,2mm thick vinyl boasts a superior 0,7mm Ceramic Bead coated wear layer and super matt Urethane finish – but that’s just the beginning! The real excitement comes from the Diversified Assortment, the unmatched Sustainability Credentials, world class Marketing Support and unrivalled Guarantees. Aspecta offers 33 Stone and Masonry tile patterns that fit seamlessly between counter contemporary and digital design. There are 52 Wood grains in a wider range of embossing and textures and larger plank and print width for unparalleled realism. And then there is the real ground breaking collection of 24 Abstracts. This brilliantly bold alternative to wood and stone offers unlimited combinations and opportunities with sizes and finishes that will bring any project to life. Manufactured from 100% virgin vinyl (which is 100% recyclable) and non-phthalate plasticisers, this together with the manufacturer’s social, economic and environmental responsibility programs has seen the product gain accreditation by the US Green Building Council and Floor Score accreditation for indoor air quality.
