Wilsonart Honored with Multi-Housing News Product Choice Award
Temple, Texas (June 1, 2009) – It’s awards season, and Wilsonart Flooring has swept the field with three big industry wins. On the design, customer service, value/quality and “green” fronts, the High Pressure Laminate (HPL) flooring leader continues to raise the bar with its commitment to providing builders and homeowners with innovative, high-design and environmentally sound products. Said Tammy Weadock, Wilsonart Flooring marketing manager, “We’re honored by this recognition of our HPL flooring’s superior design and performance from diverse industry experts, who have graciously acknowledged our efforts to be one of the premier companies in this category.”
ADEX 2009 (Awards for Design Excellence): Bestowed annually for superior product design of furnishings and building materials marketed to the design trade, and sponsored by Design Journal, the ADEX competition is the largest and most prestigious awards program for product design of furniture, fixtures and finishes. Ranked on form, function and fitness for its purpose, Wilsonart’s new Silken finish took the Silver Award, voted by a cross-section of design industry professionals. A distinctive option for homeowners who prize high style, easy maintenance and durability, all four Silken finish Styles from the company’s Classic collection come in a 5” wide plank format, in such coveted hard-wood species as Flare Cherry, Stunning Elm, Daring Walnut and Passion Jatoba. Said ADEX Executive Director John Moses, “Your company’s pursuit of excellence is to be commended. Your commitment is an inspiration to connoisseurs of fine design everywhere.”
Multi-Housing News 2009 Product Choice Awards: Wilsonart Flooring was chosen by the readers of Multi-Housing News for its dedication to value, quality, innovation and customer service. Whether owners, builders, developers, architects/designers or other industry professionals in the multi-housing sector, they all acknowledged how Wilsonart consistently provides builders and homeowners with innovative, durable and functionally stylish HPL flooring.
GREENGUARD® Environmental Institute GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certification: Wilsonart’s BlueFusion®, a Type II PVA flooring seam adhesive, is a critical part of any residential or commercial installation where there are extreme or wet conditions, eliminating the need for flooring to be acclimated prior to installation. The adhesive enhances product strength, with seams that are six times stronger and without curing time and cleanup. Now GREENGUARD Environmental Institute has bestowed its Indoor Air Quality Certification to BlueFusion, under its Certification Standard for Low-Emitting Products. Now everyone can breathe easy knowing that Wilsonart’s “sustainable” company values have been acknowledged by this independent third party.
“The GREENGUARD Certification is a prestigious program recognizing the importance of indoor air quality,” said Weadock. “Wilsonart passed requirements that only 10 – 15 percent meet in the first attempt. We’re proud to say that Classic, Estate Plus, Red Label, Professional Studio and Wilsonart Commercial Flooring products are all Indoor Air Quality Certified. It’s another expression of how Wilsonart strives to create better environments – inside and out.”
According to Templeton, the Texas-based Wilsonart armadillo “mascot” and down-home columnist for the Wilsonart LFJ Skinny (Laminate Flooring Journal News Briefs), “This ain’t our first rodeo, as we say in Texas: Wilsonart has been a Multi-Housing News Product Choice Award winner four years straight, in addition to winning a slew of other awards. But all these ‘high-fives’ in one year are truly something to hang your hat on! And my hat’s off to the Wilsonart Flooring team, who come to work every day with one mission: to make the best flooring available anywhere!”
