Calhoun, Ga.—Mohawk’s Pivot Point Red List-free enhanced resilient tile holds Living Product Challenge Petal Certification and is manufactured using alternative chemistry. Design and color draw inspiration from natural materials and biophilic influences, the company said.
“Pivot Point is aptly named because it is one of a suite of Living Products that demonstrates how Mohawk continues to move in new directions in sustainable flooring,” said George Bandy Jr., vice president of sustainability and commercial marketing. “Our Petal certified flooring covers multiple categories, giving sustainability-minded customers more options when designing their contract spaces. This nature-inspired, carbon-neutral collection emerged from our commitment to believe in better. Pivot Point is specifically designed to create better environments in a variety of commercial segments, including healthcare, senior living, workplace, retail and more.”
Pivot Point features four wood and four textile patterns in a 7 x 48-inch plank format and four terrazzo and natural stone visuals in 36 x 36-inch tiles. The colors and styles within the collection, according to the company, can be combined or used individually to create abstract, contemporary flooring designs. Pivot Point features a 3mm thickness, a 20mil commercial wear layer for superior durability and an M-Force enhanced urethane finish. In addition to its Petal Certification, Pivot Point is also FloorScore certified. At Healthcare Design Expo 2018, Pivot Point was recognized with a Nightingale Award in the Flooring: Resilient category (Silver).
As part of Pivot Point’s Petal Certification and Mohawk’s commitment to leave a handprint rather than a footprint, Mohawk Group engaged in a special handprinting partnership with Groundswell to install 10 smartflower solar systems in underserved communities and at educational institutions with STEM programs across the U.S. Last month, the collaboration debuted its second smartflower in Eden, N.C., near Mohawk’s Karastan woven rug and carpet plant.
