The contemporary new Times Square range is inspired by current trends within the contract interiors market and features a unique design on a dark grey base with bright accent colours.

The new range is available in nine contemporary colours and is supplied in six different tile designs which can be installed randomly on the floor. The colour range consists of one plain grey option in a variation of grey tones and eight other colours which feature the same grey base tones but with an option of the following accent colours: Natural, Yellow, Orange, Red, Lime, Lilac, Light Blue or Electric Blue. The colours can be used alone or can work together to create interesting and unique floor schemes.

The Times Square range offers versatility and can be used, to help differentiate areas within a building, to work with a company’s corporate identity, or to colour code different floors. The colour range can also be used to help highlight exits and access points.

Times Square has been specifically designed to be installed in any direction, which means that the tiles can be installed randomly to reduce installation time and wastage, as individual tiles can be replaced easily and no pattern matching is required.

Times Square is manufactured using nylon yarn and is supplied in tile format, providing a durable, low-maintenance floorcovering solution. The range comes with a 12 year wear warranty and each colour option has a light reflectance value (LRV) so specifiers can achieve visual contrast with adjacent surfaces, in line with Approved Document M of the Building Regulations and BS8300:2009+A1:2010.

The tiles are produced with 85% recycled content cushion backing, which not only provides underfoot comfort, but also provides excellent acoustic qualities to help reduce noise levels in busy environments.

Karen Burman, Floorcoverings Product Manager for Gradus, said: “The Times Square range has been designed in response to new market research with architects and designers, which highlighted that there is a very strong trend for both linear and random designs, as well as flooring featuring dark base tones and bright accent colours.

“The range has been created to deliver a stylish, yet hard-wearing flooring solution and to meet the requirements of the market, particularly commercial office and education applications.”
