LANCASTER, PASTRIATIONS BioBased Tile® from Armstrong Commercial Floors took top honors in the 2012 Symposium Distinction Awards, sponsored by FacilityCare Magazine, winning both Architect's Choice and Best in Show.

“Armstrong’s STRIATIONS BioBased Tile demonstrated real innovation, and our judges rewarded them with not only the Architect’s Choice, but Best in Show for the overall prize within the product category. Armstrong deserves the recognition for a great product,” said Jenabeth Ferguson, Event Director, Healthcare Facilities Symposium & Expo.

Stylish Linear Visual
Award-winning STRIATIONS BBT has changed the way designers look at premium tile. This contemporary, stylish floor covering is both ecologically sound and economical. The linear visual suggests a natural appearance in a 24" x 12" format that helps hide seams. It’s perfect for healthcare and easy to use in hospitality, education, office and retail interiors.

“We are delighted with this prestigious honor. It’s reflective of the opinions of the members of the healthcare industry who chose Armstrong for its commitment to value, durability, and design,” said Julianne Pierce, Director of Commercial Marketing & Product Design, Armstrong.

The awards were presented during the Healthcare Facilities Symposium & Expo held in Chicago from October 2-4, 2012.  FacilityCare Magazine in association with the Healthcare Facilities Symposium & Expo sponsors the Awards.
