Why hotels opt for this luxury flooring

Traviata’s newest ranges of rigid core luxury vinyl tiles (LVTs) bring not only design flexibility but also a number of practical solutions to the hospitality industry across Africa.

Specified by the City Lodge Group for its City Lodge and Town Lodge brands, Traviata’s luxury vinyl flooring products have been installed in the front and back of house areas as well as in the bedrooms of hotels in Johannesburg, Durban and as far afield as Tanzania, with further hotels in the pipeline.


It’s efficient
One of the most attractive characteristics of Traviata’s IsoCore LVT flooring, which was used in some of the upgrades, is the speed of installation. Bedrooms and other areas can quite literally be upgraded and be back into operation the following day, with no special floor preparation, noise, smells or other inconvenience to the guests.

The ease of cleaning and factory-applied anti-microbial/anti-bacterial coatings also makes this product suitable for common areas such as lounges and restaurants.

Excellent acoustics
Another interesting feature of the IsoCore LVT is its sound characteristics. The Marriott Group in the US has approved IsoCore based on the results of floor-to-floor sound transmission tests. In fact, the sound mitigating properties of the 1.5mm IXPE backer gives an even better result than carpeted floors and significantly reduces in-room drum noise.

Locally, Traviata has supplied IsoCore flooring for Marriott’s new hotel in the yacht club precinct in Cape Town and is supplying the same flooring for Marriott’s new hotel in Melrose Arch in Johannesburg.

Better air quality
The latest technology rigid core interlocking vinyl ranges contain no plasticisers, no phthalates, PBB’s, heavy metals or other contaminants associated with the very early vinyl flooring options, which means that indoor air quality is of the highest standard.

Products like IsoCore therefore easily qualify for Floor Score ratings, which certify them as suitable for use in all hotels, offices, classrooms and similarly sensitive living spaces.

Perhaps most importantly is the fact that the new breed of rigid core vinyl boards is incredibly stable. This combined with a lighter and stiffer composition allows them to be used over almost any firm surface including raised and boarded floors. It also means that they can more confidently be used in areas receiving direct sunlight.

Traviata is a leading importer of flooring products, supplying world-leading technology to a number of sectors in Africa.
