(Toronto, Canada) — Delivering a revolutionary new design for home, industrial and business flooring, GRIP Metal has launched GRIP Floor, a new strong and lightweight solution for building and remodeling projects. Ideal for areas of heavy traffic or spaces where cleanliness is critical, GRIP Floor is easy to assemble and easy to maintain.
GRIP Floor can be applied directly to sand, soil, old concrete or asphalt to create a waterproof and level surface. It binds together thin layers of GRIP Metal panels with infection-resistant surface material to create a load-bearing floor that does not require footings or foundations and does incorporate low-tech radiant heating and cooling for comfort and sustainability.
“When you’re on your feet all day, flooring makes a big difference in how you feel and how you perform,” said Mark Lavelle, Global Sales Director for GRIP Metal. “With GRIP Floor, we are pleased to introduce an option that is functional, attractive and designed for environments where sterilization is critical.”
GRIP Floor follows other recent innovations, including a collaboration with Toronto architect Tye Farrow to develop new building block-technology designed for easy-to-deploy ICU ward as well as adhesive GRIP Strips, which are now being carried by Rothoblaas, the world’s largest timber company.
