TAJ Flooring launches new resilient sheet
Elgin, Ill.—Taj Flooring launched a resilient sheet flooring designed for active environments. Motivva Sports and Multipurpose Flooring performs in interior settings, whether it be for multipurpose community use or sport-focused facilities use.
According to the company, Motivva excels in durability, stability and visual strength. Motivva offers various thickness options including 8mm Competition and 6.5mm Versa, which feature a Class 2 shock absorption rating in accordance with the ASTM F2772 standard for high-performance requirements, as well as 4.5mm Multi and 2mm Strongside for multipurpose use.
“Our inspiration for Motivva was driven by a need in the marketplace to provide a focused and value-oriented assortment for both athletic and multipurpose use,” said Tom Powell, president, Taj Flooring. “From first-grade maple designs to solid visuals, Motivva is ideal for a variety of end-use architectural applications including K-12 interiors, churches and places of worship, municipalities and more.”
Each of Motivva’s thickness options is available in three designs: wood, stained wood and solid. According to the company, the wood designs are the foundation of the collection with the look of a traditional woodgrain plank design available in maple and oak. “A go-to look for athletic courts, our Maple design is the brightest of maples, often referred to as a first-grade visual,” said Joe Polito, vice president of product development. “For an alternative look with warm tones and stronger woodgrain characteristics, Motivva’s Oak visual is intended for non-sport applications looking for a softer appeal.”
To play with color, stained wood features the maple design in a selection of semi-transparent colorations for a unique wood aesthetic. For spaces that require school branding or to color outside of the lines, the solid design palette is available in various primary and secondary color options and is ideal for creating boundary areas, basketball keys, wayfinding in general multipurpose areas, or for wall-to- wall installations, according to the company.
“Solids have always been an accessory to woodgrains, though there is still a need and an emerging trend for all-solid applications,” Powell said.
With performance and safety in mind, the company said Motivva’s fiberglass reinforced heterogenous vinyl sheet construction provides proper cushion underneath to suit the environment and to provide overall comfort. Motivva is a phthalate-free product with a polyurethane coating meaning no wax or stripping is required, cleanup is easy and eliminates the need for chemical-based cleaning and maintenance.
