Resilient Sheet from The Discovery Collection Offers Unexpected Style and High Performance for Healthcare Spaces

An industry leader in flooring for healthcare spaces, Mannington Commercial announced that it will be featuring The Discovery Collection at Surfaces 2019. Discovery’s three styles of heterogeneous sheet flooring explore abstract, textural visuals in a soothing color palette. Designed to bring both high performance and unexpected style to healthcare environments, Discovery was inspired by an urban art installation in which city alleyways were transformed into sites of geometric beauty and engaging texture.

The Discovery Collection features three uniquely abstract styles:

• Encounter is a linear pattern that evokes the soft, stippled texture of carpet.

• Reveal incorporates small-scale triangles and etching into a weathered, vintage graphic pattern.

• Unlock is a watercolor-painted crosshatch pattern with a textural quality evocative of stone.

Each style is available in six colors, with a versatile, soothing palette of grays, beiges, and blues. The product is available in 6’, 9’ and 12’-wide rolls to minimize waste and provide ease of installation.

Discovery’s styles coordinate with each other and are designed to complement a range of carpet and hard surface flooring collections, making it simple to create cohesive flooring designs across spaces with different flooring needs. Discovery can also be chemically welded to carpet with Mannington Commercial’s Seam + Advantage seam weld method, a no-transition solution ideal for healthcare environments. The Discovery Collection features Quantum Guard® Elite, Mannington Commercial’s industry-leading performance technology, which is engineered to meet the demands of healthcare spaces. Resilient sheet with Quantum Guard Elite is proven to clean better than competitors while offering best-in-class abrasion, stain and slip resistance. Resilient sheet with Quantum Guard Elite is also cost-effective to maintain, with no need for polishing. The Discovery Collection carries a limited ten-year commercial warranty and limited ten-year Quantum Guard Elite wear warranty.

In addition to design and performance advantages, The Discovery Collection offers the benefit of a non-ortho phthalate construction. The collection is FloorScore certified and features an Industry-wide 3rd Party Type III EPD. The Discovery Collection is made by Mannington Commercial in Salem, New Jersey. Manufacturing in the USA not only supports local economies but also allows Mannington Commercial to provide clients with better quality control, service, faster shipping and a vast array of flooring products—including the Discovery Collection resilient sheet—without overseas shipping costs or price increases due to tariffs.
