Aspecta's new architects folder features a range of over 100 planks and tiles that offer a new dimension to flooring in terms of design, color and embossing techniques, according to the company.

The 52 woods, 33 stones and 25 abstracts are all showcased here in an easy to view format with samples of every single product contained in an expandable portfolio that extends out to span nearly five feet. The three product assortments are in separate binders, stored as a collection in a robust desk top box, alongside a full product brochure. While aesthetic impact is a priority, all technical details and sustainability credentials are also included, such as Aspecta's Platinum level NSF 332 accreditation, safety and performance, sound, physical properties and packaging, manufacturing and usage standards.

"Aspecta has been developed following consultation with architects and designers to ensure that it outperforms the current market offering from an aesthetic as well as practical perspective," said Russ Rogg, president—North America for Aspecta. "As specialists in contract LVT, it is very important to us that we show this new range in an appropriate context, and we hope to recruit many new specifiers to the category by giving them something not previously offered." 

Aspecta embraces new textures and a host of colors aligned with forecasts from The Color Association of The United States. Themes include global artisan, island zen, urban grit, lighter neutrals and naturals, with influences ranging from punk to Scandinavia. The result is a widely varied offering that comprises woods, linear stone, washed concrete, garden stone and tarnished metals. 

Ideal for high traffic areas such as retail, hospitality, commercial buildings, healthcare and education, Aspecta is easy to maintain, and comes with a 25 year guarantee, according to the company. Innovations include larger plank and wider planks than previously available to reduce the repeat element, and the creation of a more natural look with a range of in-registered embossing techniques. It is available in a wide selection of formats from 4 x 36-inch planks to 24-inch tiles.

Aspecta's architects folder is now available free of charge to the architect and design community through the brand's sales consultants. For more information and contact details, visit
