Armstrong Commercial Flooring introduces Flip Spray Adhesive for spaces that require a quick flooring renovation. The specially developed spray adhesive is for use with Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT), Sheet and Vinyl Composition Tile (VCT). Building owners, facility managers, and contractors can specify Flip Spray Adhesive for all these flooring solutions, instead of purchasing one spray bottle for each type of floor. Flip offers a one-step application process with no mixing required.

Gossamer by Versa Wallcovering brings the look of pleated silk to the wall. The low-VOC vinyl wallcovering blends color and texture to replicate the threads and folds of a natural textile. Gossamer has a smooth surface that provides cleanability in healthcare and high-traffic spaces. Twenty-one colors include rich neutrals, a range of blues, and earthy hues that lend wood grain effects.  The pattern comes in vivids for pediatric applications and neutrals for other healthcare settings. The Type II vinyl wallcovering is certified to the NSF/ANSI 342 Sustainability Standard.  

MaxLite (West Caldwell, N.J.) has introduced the new DesignLights Consortium (DLC)-qualified LED T8 Linear Lamp with an internal driver to allow for quick replacement of 32-watt four-foot T8 or T12 fluorescent linear tubes in standard troffers.  The new LED retrofit lamp is constructed with LM80-rated LEDs that enable silent operation. The lamps are offered in correlated color temperatures (CCT) of 3500K, 4100K and 5000K, with outputs of up to 1,900 lumens. The 18-watt LED lamp features standard G13 pins that fit into most common fluorescent fixtures with non-shunted sockets. The DLC-qualified LED T8 Linear Lamp is suitable for installation in a variety of commercial and institutional applications, including offices, lobbies, hallways, showrooms and conference rooms in healthcare facilities. MaxLite also offers an LED T8 Linear Lamp with an external driver.
