Celebrating its 40th anniversary, floorwise made its return to The Flooring Show, showcasing its latest developments alongside some of its well-established best-sellers.
Visitors to this year’s The Flooring Show were treated to the return of floorwise as the leading accessories and installation products supplier returned to mark its 40th anniversary. Showcasing some of their best-selling products such as its versatile Pro-Screed Gold smoothing compound alongside a wide range of PU foam underlays and its F599 Heavy Duty Spray Adhesive; the supplier was on hand to talk with installers and other visitors checking in on the NICF Fitter of the Year competition.
Along with celebrating their 40th anniversary the show also saw floorwise focus on its brand-new, award winning, 100% dichloromethane free F597 Heavy Duty Spray Adhesive. Developed by floorwise as a healthier alternative to ‘conventional’ heavy duty spray adhesives with no performance compromise, F597 removes the hazards associated with many sprays of being potentially carcinogenic and harmful to the environment. The other significant benefit of F597 is that, unlike dichloromethane, the solvent used is lighter than air and so will disperse faster into the atmosphere, removing the traditional health risk from dichloromethane of asphyxiation for installers working on their knees.
Andrew Gill, group product manager, floorwise, says: “It was great to appear at The Flooring Show once again. It provides an opportunity to spread word of our flooring accessories and installation products and we were delighted to be able to mark our 40th anniversary by being there. Chatting to installers and retailers is always a great way to find out how we can improve products or respond to their needs with new product development.
“New products on show included our F597 Heavy Duty Spray Adhesive. The response we’ve received to F597 has been excellent and the show just reaffirmed that the product really is hitting the mark with installers. With a high adhesive content for great application, it really does deliver a controllable spray that tacks up beautifully and its health benefits over conventional products mean many installers are making it their first choice. After The Flooring Show, we hope that more installers turn to it and start a healthier and safer way to work.”
