The new Emphasis range is inspired by current trends within the contract interiors market and features bright, vibrant colours, which look striking, especially when used to complement dark grey tones such as charcoal and anthracite grey.  

The new range is available in seven contemporary colours (gold, orange, red, green, sky blue, blue and grey). This collection of bright, vibrant colours will provide emphasis to any interior, offering versatility and helping to create a unique and contemporary design statement. 

The colours can be used to create feature areas or to emphasise particular areas within a building, such as breakout areas, seating areas, lift areas and walkways, as well as be used to highlight exits and access points, in line with Equality Act guidelines. The range looks particularly striking when used to complement grey colours from other Gradus carpet ranges such as Stratus II, Brickworks and SqMile.

Emphasis is manufactured using 100% solution dyed nylon yarn and is supplied in either loop pile or cut pile, 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.

Karen Burman, Floorcoverings Product Manager for Gradus, said: “The Emphasis range has been designed in response to new market research with architects and designers, which highlighted that there is a very strong trend for using bright, vibrant colours to complement darker, moodier grey tones such as charcoal and anthracite grey.  

“Emphasis is suitable for a wide range of environments and offers durability, functionality, creativity and design. The range has been designed and coloured to meet the requirements of the market, particularly commercial office and education.”
