A collaboration between Mannington Commercial and HOK Product Design, the Vivendi collection, including Blockprint and Perennial, seeks to elevate performance flooring for high-traffic environments in which durability is as important as design.
The collection won NeoCon Gold in 2012 for its forward-thinking approach to high-traffic contract flooring
Designed to coordinate with other Vivendi products, including privacy curtains from Pallas Textiles and Vivendi resilient sheet flooring (another NeoCon Gold winner), the collection’s three patterns—Montage, Teres and Circ—are inspired by “fractal geometries with an organic twist,” writes the manufacturer.
Designed for low maintenance, Vivendi carpet is made with Mannington’s XGUARD stain-preventing technology and with ColorSafe bleach-resistant technology, to help maintain the carpet’s appearance even after years of harsh cleaning.
Installed with the manufacturer’s Seam+Advantage chemical welding technique provides seamless transitions, eliminating the need for transition strips between carpet, resilient flooring, and LVT. Seam+Advantage also facilitates transfer of heavy rolling loads and safer foot traffic, as well eliminating transition strips that can become home to infectious bacteria.
The carpet comes backed with Integra®HP and Infinity Modular high performance broadloom backings, each certified as an Environmentally Preferable Product to the NSF/ANSI-140 Gold standard. It is also available on rEvolve®, Mannington’sthermoplastic polyolefin modular backing system, which contains 40 percent recycled content (10 percent of which is post-consumer) and is certified NSF/ANSI-140 Platinum.
