AHF expands collections, broadens distribution
Mountville, Pa.-AHF Products worked with key distributors across the country to represent the company’s recently expanded and expanded portfolio of commercial flooring. These relationships enhance AHF’s ability to effectively respond to the needs of commercial customers in key geographies, the company said.
The AHF contract portfolio includes homogeneous sheet, heterogeneous sheet, inlaid heterogeneous sheet, LVT, commercial hardwood and new vinyl based tile (VBT). “Aligning with strong distribution partners is critical to our growth across our business, especially the commercial segment,” said Chris King, vice president of sales, AHF Products. “Our distribution partners provide local stock, sales, marketing and logistics support. For A&D customers and commercial contractors, they provide reliability and relationships and, most importantly, a team dedicated to serving commercial customers in a specific region of the country.”
The new AHF Contract Portfolio includes brand new VBT, inlaid, homogeneous and heterogeneous sheet vinyl products in addition to the previously launched SPC rigid core, loose lay and traditional LVT. AHF Products’ new VBT offers lower maintenance and life cycle costs compared to traditional VCT tiles, with colors specifically developed for commercial environments. A 20 mil high performance commercial wear layer is finished with AHF’s innovative Urethane Plus finish. The 2.5mm thick construction provides a solid, durable and stable floor that can withstand heavy rolling loads, is extremely resistant to scratches and stains and offers excellent abrasion and slip resistance.
“Commercial customers have said they like the coloring and premium chip visual of the new VBT product,” said Jennifer Zimmerman, vice president, Resilient. “Distributors give high marks to AHF Products for continuing our practice of asking the market for what it wants and providing products that meet that need.”
All vinyl plank and tile textures offer a 20 mil commercial wear layer and a 15 year commercial warranty. The coating on the plank and tile products also contains Cleantivity protection, which inhibits the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew, reducing maintenance effort and costs. “Here we send a performance story with easy cleaning and anti-scratch, anti-stain and anti-microbial story with great designs and best-in-class performance,” said Zimmerman.
AHF Products’ vinyl record line is designed for light commercial, multi-family and fabricated home installations and is environmentally friendly. According to the company, these floors are ideal for use in healthcare, assisted living, education, corporate, hospitality, retail and institutional interiors. The same designs, including wood, linen and stone visuals, are offered in multiple constructions, allowing the customer to choose a construction look that best suits their needs.
“Our customers benefit from AHF’s size, resources, design leadership and flooring expertise, most notably by helping them grow the commercial flooring industry, and the added benefit of working with a one-stop shop,” said King.
