Flexible tiles and planks for post-pandemic offices

The flexibility of carpet tiles and planks allows designers to experiment with different spatial options – a capacity which is most important in the Covid-19 office environment. Tiles and planks can help define areas such as meeting points, activity or quiet zones, way-finding design, and how to use flooring creatively to demarcate social distancing.

KBAC Flooring now stocks the Danish producer, Ege’s new The Highline Express Tile Collection, which takes full advantage of flexibility to adapt to diverse requirements.

With flooring more important than ever in architectural and interior design, tiles and planks are now recognised as important materials for the office of today. The new range from Ege is designed to optimise space, functionality and to meet the needs of employees, with design options that bring emotions and senses into play.

Highline Express designs are available in square 48x48cm and 96x96cm tiles and with the addition of the rectangular 24x96cm plank, there is scope to combine the three options to create unique flooring.

The Highline Express Tile Collection offers many standard designs that can be recoloured and produced in one of six different cut or loop qualities. In production, Ege uses its own blend of New Zealand wool renowned for creating a healthy and comfortable indoor environment.

Sustainability is a keyword in the new range as Ege’s Highline Express flooring is made with Econyl yarn derived from abandoned fishing nets and other industrial waste; and fitted Ege’s patented Ecotrust tile backing, produced from old plastic bottles.
