ASPECTA's Robert Langstaff explains ASPECTA TEN’s design potential

We have begun to preview ASPECTA TEN, which will be our second LVT range exclusively for the contract market. It comprises four wood grains and three tile designs produced in a new construction that is water proof. This new platform is a perfect solution for many commercial applications with its waterproof feature, improved click system, and resistance to mold. All this innovation is receiving great feedback especially from the hospitality, retail and commercial sectors.

But of equal importance within the A&D community, this range looks fantastic and offers tremendous scope in terms of its versatility and potential to be part of something truly unique.

There are four wood grains that capture the clean lines of European oaks as well as expanding the reclaimed woods that are still in vogue for retail and hospitality markets. We have selected a format of 16" x 32" for the three tiles to fall more in line with what designers are looking for in contract tiles. As with ASPECTA FIVE, we focused on authenticity in our designs. That is why all the wood grains have in-register embossings (IRE) which are created specifically for each wood grain so that the texture lines up with the design creating a more realistic effect. To complete the look we control the luster level to keep it a matt finish just as you would have in natural wood.

A unique feature for this line is that a designer can create their own reclaimed look by selecting three colors from a design and then installing them in a random manner the same way you would if you were using natural reclaimed wood. If you are adventurous you could chose different wood designs and colors to make a truly original design. This can also be done with ASPECTA FIVE but keep in mind you can only use products in combination that are selected from their respective lines because of thickness, size, and installation requirements.

Stay tuned for samples in the fall - we are expecting to see some beautiful floors that have great individuality, that will literally last for decades.
