Gerflor has added more choice and features to the tile and plank market with the launch of two finely tuned new Virtuo ranges.

The two pronged attack on this growing market segment is designed to give homemakers the versatility to choose the right solution for their particular sub floor and climatic conditions.

Gerflor Product Marketing Manager, Jutta Fronert said poor advice and product selection meant some homemakers were experiencing growth and shrinkage after installing some so called “loose lay” plank and tile systems.

“Virtuo is the ultimate flooring virtuoso. Whatever your scenario, you can select from modern plank or tile options. Depending on climatic conditions in your area, you can opt for tacky backed, removable Virtuo Adjust or permanent glued Virtuo Classic in areas where extremes in temperatures were experienced,” Ms Fronert said.

The loose lay nature of Virtuo Adjust makes it the ideal choice for rental properties or rooms that undergo regular makeovers to reflect the very latest trends.

“The Virtuo story is unified by beautiful designs and colours, quality European heritage and the unique synergy of underfoot comfort, ease of installation and maintenance. Next year we will add our trusted Clic range to this Virtuo story,” Ms Fronert said. Virtuo Adjust is a 4m thick range while Classic is 2.5. Both boast 0.55 wear layer and offer tiles in rectangular and square formats as well as planks in two different sizes.
