Twickenham chooses LVT flooring

Twickenham has opted to use LVT flooring for its new East Stand development.

The main reasons why the designers of the new stand at the English national rugby stadium chose LVT were for its premium look, durability and cost-effective price.

Debbie Power of architects KSS that designed the stand said:

“We wanted to replicate the structure’s original materials such as timber and concrete, with an authentic looking product that was also robust enough to withstand the demands of a busy venue such as Twickenham.”

In Union Ale House, a large pub-style venue, KSS used a combination of herringbone laid Country Oak and stone effect tiles. This created a premium look well within the budget for the project.

The development of the East Stand has 3,000 square metres of floor space that needed covering. IVC’s 55 specification LVT flooring was chosen to deal with the high footfall. This LVT has a 0.55mm wear layer which is designed to resist wear and scuff marks, and is easy to clean.

The vinyl tiles used at Twickenham contain over half (55%) recycled materials.

There are many LVT design options available to create floors that are both practical and aesthetically pleasing. However, there’s no need to have to have a large floor area like Twickenham to benefit from LVT tiles. LVT flooring in Chester homes and commercial premises is perfect for people who want a quality, long-lasting floor available in a wide range of colours and patterns to suit all décor styles, and is reasonably priced.
