Teles High Resiliency Rubber Wins Interior Design Best of Year Award


Mannington Commercial, a leader in flooring for commercial interiors, has been honored with a Best of Year Award from Interior Design magazine, for Teles high resiliency rubber plank and tile.

Created with healthcare, education, and large public space applications in mind, Teles is an innovation in rubber flooring, with double the PSI of other rubber flooring. While still delivering the characteristics that make rubber desirable—including acoustic properties and greater comfort underfoot, Teles also brings unprecedented resistance to indentations under heavy foot traffic and rolling loads. 

“Teles is a game-changing innovation in rubber flooring, that builds upon more than 70 years of experience in formulating rubber for aerospace and industrial applications,” said Bob Pitman, President of Burke Industries, a subsidiary of Mannington Commercial. “We’re delighted to be included in Interior Design’s Best of Year Awards, such a positive and uplifting event that celebrates excellent products launched in the past year.” 

Teles is available in 35” square tiles, 17.5” square tiles, 17.5”x35” plank, and 5.8”x35” plank. A color line inspired by earthscapse, as well as custom colors, help to push the envelope on how beautiful practical, high performance rubber flooring can be. 

A proprietary internal wax compound provides a self-waxing feature, reducing maintenance and protecting the product in heavy traffic environments.

Teles is a PVC-free product made in the USA of natural rubber, and includes 10% sustainable material. It is IAQ certified under FloorScore, approved as CHPS 01350 compliant and recognized in LEED IEQ Credit 4.3.
