GREEN LIGNIN anti-slip impact sound insulation recently took second prize in the “Innovation” category of the prestigious German materialPREIS competition. With its unique anti-slip technology, the underlay for vinyl and designer flooring impressed the jury with its superb material properties and high-quality execution.
THE MATERIALPREIS AWARD FOR OUTSTANDING MATERIALS
The materialPREIS award aims to showcase the importance of material properties and their influence on interior design and people’s perceptions of the spaces they inhabit. The focus is on innovative materials and their use in architecture and design. This year the independent specialist jury highlighted 24 exciting new products as well as a number of cleverly designed product enhancements and noteworthy studies. The submissions and winners will be on show at an exclusive exhibition at the Design Center Baden-Württemberg. Find out more about the award (in German): www.materialpreis.com
GREEN LIGNIN ANTI-SLIP – THE PERFECT MATCH FOR MODERN CLICK VINYL FLOORING
GREEN LIGNIN anti-slip is specially designed to be compatible with modern floating vinyl and designer flooring up to 5 mm thick. With its unique anti-slip surface and outstanding biopolymer core, GREEN LIGNIN anti-slip offers superb acoustic properties which significantly reduce impact sound. Meanwhile its innovative anti-slip technology stops the boards of floating floors from slipping out of position.
REVOLUTIONARY ANTI-SLIP SURFACE
Thanks to its slightly “sticky” surface, GREEN LIGNIN anti-slip clings to the top layer of flooring like a gecko. When forces are exerted on the surface (e.g. walking across it or applying pressure in some other way) the material works to prevent gaps from forming and to prevent any damage to the click system used in floating vinyl and designer flooring. As well as absorbing the pressure on people’s spines and joints, this property of GREEN LIGNIN anti-slip also increases a floor’s durability and prevents click joints from coming apart. And remember that even with its anti-slip characteristics, GREEN LIGNIN anti-slip doesn’t hinder the floating effect of the floor.
