Zandur re-launches Sustain cork rubber flooring with vibrant new color line!
Zandur has re-launched its Cork Rubber Flooring under the Sustain brand name. Already known for its tremendous color lines, Zandur raises the bar again with a new color line featuring extensive options in cool and warm neutrals as well as brighter primaries. This updated pallet coordinates with current trends in wall coverings, fixtures and other flooring materials and is particularly well suited for use in healthcare, education and corporate environments.
Along with the updated color line, Sustains best-in-class slip resistance, low intensity maintenance and underfoot comfort make it a natural choice for universities, hospitals and other commercial facilities that are looking for a safer product that is more durable and contains more recycled content than most other resilient products today.
Sustain Cork Rubber is made from over 65% recycled and renewable cork and 35% rubber. Its price point sensitivity and elegant natural texture make it an outstanding choice for any application. It is available in 24″ x 24″ and 12″ X 24″ tiles and meets the requirements of numerous LEED credits due to its high levels of recycled and renewable content. The product also meets CHPS indoor air quality standards and is anti-microbial. Once Zandur’s products have surpassed their useful life they may be recycled through the Zandur take back program.

NeoCon East Wraps Up
NeoCon East was a big box-office draw: 250 exhibitors, 30 educational programs, and hundreds of new products aimed at one of the largest clients anywhere, but especially in the metro DC market—the federal government. How large? The organizers say the government will spend $1.6 billion on interiors this year, to make them more efficient and healthier.
While there, we checked out Bentley Prince Street’s new lines, Hollywood Story and Domestic Alchemy. Hollywood Story shimmers with extra hints of color that add depth and texture, in tones that set a classic scene for high-level corporate spaces.
Bentley Prince Street’s display also featured the Tucson collection. Best of all, they introduced new carpet tile sizes: 3’x3′ and 18″x36” in addition to their standard 2’x2′ size.
