Luxury vinyl tiles from the Expona Bevel Line Collection were used as part of a brand new departures area which was recently unveiled at Cardiff Airport.
The £4m project, which was completed in partnership with Cardiff interior design practice Powell, includes a brand new, spacious extension to the departures area which overlooks the airfield; a new Costa Coffee; an extended and relocated WH Smith store and the 51° Executive Lounge and Business Lounge, which features Expona Bevel Line in the Portland Stone and Light Oak designs.
The light, clean, contemporary design of the Portland Stone tiles complements the classic Light Oak planks, defining seating areas and walkways, and creating a calming, stylish environment perfectly suited for the soon to be bustling departure area. Versatile, both designs work well alongside the lounge’s slate grey colour, a decision inspired by the famous Welsh slate heritage.
Gareth Knight, Operations Director from Powell commented, ‘With the addition of Expona Bevel Line, the newly extended departure area is now light and airy, significantly transforming the experience for customers with welcoming surroundings.’
With a heavy commercial use area classification, Expona Bevel Line features a 0.55mm wear layer with a polyurethane surface treatment to assist on-going maintenance and is suitable for the high traffic environment of a busy airport. Bevel Line achieves the highest possible BRE Global A + rating (ENP 429) for high traffic areas such as retail and commercial environments and is 100% recyclable.
The Expona Bevel Line Collection offers a choice of 9 contemporary stone and 18 commercially attractive timer effects that beautifully replicate natural flooring materials, designed for use in heavy commercial areas. The Bevel Line Collection has bevelled edges on all four sides of the planks and tiles, designed with authenticity in mind to feature all the intricate details and unique characteristics you wood expect in natural wood or stone flooring.
