Armstrong Introduces New Hardwood Line with Enhanced Durability

LANCASTER, PAPerformance Plus®, Armstrong Commercial Flooring’s newest hardwood collection, offers superior durability, added scratch-resistance and Lock&Fold technology for easy installations. Performance Plus floors are made with an acrylic-infusion process that makes them 2.5 times harder than non-infused hardwood floors of similar species. These highly durable floors then have an exclusive Nano technology finish applied to the surface that prevents scratches and stains. Performance Plus is available in 6 wood species (birch, cherry, hickory, maple, oak and walnut) and 30 colors to ensure there is an option for every type of interior. 

Hardwood for today's demanding commercial environments
“Commercial floors by their very nature are subject to the toughest demands in any building,” said Milton Goodwin, vice president, Product Management – Hardwood. “Performance Plus will appeal to commercial specifiers and interior designers alike for its featured durability, warranty and multiple installation options.”

The collection can be installed mechanically with Armstrong’s Lock & Fold click system or with either staples or glue. Performance Plus is backed by a 10-year commercial warranty.

Wood Portfolio Designed for Commercial Market
Armstrong’s wood floor collections are attuned to the needs of the commercial market. Notes Principal Designer Sara M. Babinski: “Commercial designers want to create interiors that are warm, inviting and stimulating – especially for signature spaces and retail selling environments. Wood grain, texture, contrast and color all add drama. These are what we emphasize in the Armstrong hardwood portfolio because these are what lift the eyes and the emotions.”

Armstrong’s newest collection of beautiful hardwoods is intended to meet the high design needs and the traffic demands of retail stores, hospitality areas, educational institutions, military housing and more.
