Fairlawn, OH, March 1, 2012 (NYSE: OMN) -
OMNOVA Solutions is excited to unveil
Element and Fortress, its newest Boltaflex® contract
upholstery designs for today's most discerning designers.
Both patterns features an expansive color palette of
on-trend hues, a durable vinyl construction and a
protective finish to meet the requirements of today's most
demanding interior spaces, including healthcare,
hospitality and corporate office. The proprietary coatings
utilized on these designs make them ideal for many
healthcare applications by providing superior chemical
resistance and enabling the use of a broad range of
cleaners and disinfectants without discoloring or damaging
the finish. Designers and manufacturers will seek out
Element and Fortress for their performance attributes but
will be enticed by all their design possibilities.
Elementis a wonder to behold with its
lattice work of vertical and horizontal lines racing across
a field of rich color, evoking thoughts of a challenging
maze or a bird's eye view of a busy cityscape. Influenced
by Asian screens, the lines of the pattern intersect at
seemingly random points, enabling its lush, stippled
background to show through in a variety of geometric
shapes. Element features a palette of ten contemporary
colors, including several knockout red, blue and green
offerings, as well as a variety of jewel and earth tones.
Combined with a minimalist emboss and OMNOVA's legendary
PreFixx® protective finish, Element offers the full package
of luxury, comfort and durability sought after for today's
contemporary interiors. PreFixx protective finish delivers
the industry's best-in-class performance, durability and
easy maintenance to OMNOVA's upholstery products.
Designed specifically for the healthcare market,
Fortress features a robust construction with a faux leather
grain. It features a proprietary protective coating that
enables the upholstery to be safely cleaned and disinfected
with many of the products used in today's healthcare
settings without the worry of staining or damaging the
finish. Despite the pattern's hardy build, it has a soft
hand and can be tailored using traditional methods.
Fortress is available in 16 high-fashion colors, including
bold fuchsia, sky blue and emerald green selections, as
well as a number of organic and jewel tones.
Boltaflexproducts have been a mainstay
of hard working interiors for more than 50 years.
