Polyflor’s flooring solutions create better environments, both inside and out

Since launching in Australia and New Zealand in 1963, Polyflor has set the standard for vinyl flooring with its commitment to superior quality, customer focus and sustainability.

The floor is integral to shaping how people experience interior spaces. It can be used to define a space, achieve a specific style or atmosphere, or provide a sense of navigation. It is our connection to the ground and can determine how individuals feel and how comfortable they are when they first step into a space.

The process of choosing the right flooring that fosters the desired mood, tone, connection and performance can be a challenging one. Polyflor, global leaders in vinyl flooring solutions for commercial and residential installations, guides customers through the entire process – from choosing the most suitable, sustainable and environmentally-friendly product for their project, to application and maintenance.

Polyflor guides customers with choosing the right flooring

Launched in Australia and New Zealand in 1963, Polyflor creates flooring solutions that are both functional and beautiful. Whether it be for the home or in a commercial environment, Polyfor’s products uphold the same level of international quality and design standard that their parent company Polyflor Ltd UK is renowned for. The company also offers functional solutions like sustainable slip resistance, acoustic noise reduction, rubber and sports flooring. This versatility enables Polyflor to offer flooring solutions to meet any need.

The foundation of Polyflor’s success not only lies in the superior quality of their products, but also in their customer focus. With sales offices and warehouses all throughout Australia and New Zealand, the Polyflor team works closely with contractors, specifiers and end users to understand their requirements and provide the ideal solution for any installation.

Environmentally-preferred flooring

Polyflor’s collection of vinyl flooring makes a big impact on the look of a space, but a small impact on the earth. Their achievements in this area include products certified under the Global Greentag ecolabel scheme; achieving ‘PVC Best Practice’, as audited by NCS International Pty Ltd; and taking an industry-leading role in vinyl recycling and take-back schemes.

In addition, most of Polyflor’s product ranges are 100% recyclable with many of the floor coverings containing up to 40% recycled content, while the Expona and Camaro LVT flooring collections are now produced phthalate free and/or contain bio-based plasticisers.

These achievements are all backed up by Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), which highlight Polyflor’s commitment to providing completely transparent information about Polyflor products and their impact on the environment.

Commercial and residential ranges

Polyflor supplies high quality, stylish, durable and low-maintenance luxury vinyl for both commercial and residential applications.

The Residential range includes products designed purposefully for Australian homes and busy families. One of the most popular is MiPlank, which offers a natural timber look in longer, thicker planks that are easy to install and maintain. Featuring a polyurethane (PUR) coating and heavy duty commercial wear layer this product is designed to last. For those requiring a high-performing acoustic product, eight shades from the MiPlank collection are also available with a specially-formulated acoustic backing.

The Commercial range includes hardwearing floor coverings that are attractive, modern and easy to maintain. In this category, Palettone PUR stands out as Polyflor’s most extensive range yet. Inspired by the natural environment and a world of colour, Palettone is available in sheet in a palette of 50 contemporary colours, ranging from pale neutrals through to more intense shades. It also offers outstanding durability, abrasion resistance and low maintenance due to its cross-linked PUR reinforcement.
