CHICAGO, Il. June 9, 2014—Mohawk Group’s total flooring solution for commercial interiors includes distinctive and high-performing broadloom and carpet tile as well as new durable hard surface products. All will be on stage at Mohawk Group’s showroom #3-377 at Neocon 2014, including Hot & Heavy, an innovative loose-lay Luxury Vinyl Tile collection.

Mohawk’s award-winning luxury vinyl tile collection, Hot & Heavy, is a fashion-forward and high performance answer for commercial environment. Hot & Heavy’s large-scale Secoya wood-look planks in 9-inch x 59-inch format mirror popular European hardwood design trends—and also cover a sizeable area with minimum install time. Tiles in the trendy larger size (36-inch squares) emulate contemporary stained concrete finishes and broaden this robust product line. The planks come in nine colors, and the tiles are available in eight shades. Both palettes are designed to coordinate with Mohawk Group and Durkan soft surface products to offer designers more flexibility in crafting a fashionable, cohesive look.

For commercial and hospitality applications, Hot & Heavy is a time-saving, cost-effective and healthy flooring solution. Because of its heavier weight (5mm thickness) and nonskid backing, the loose lay product requires no adhesive. And the loose lay format works beautifully for all settings: Installation of Hot & Heavy takes less time so spaces can be occupied immediately. If a tile becomes damaged, replacement is simple and can be done without disassembling the floor.

  • Hot & Heavy is constructed with performance upgrades to offer installation advantages:
  • The added weight, non-skid backing and exceptional dimensional stability keep planks in place, even under commercial foot traffic.
  • Acoustical properties limit sound and provide quiet acoustics for multi-story properties such as hotels and office buildings
  • Subfloor preparation is reduced as Hot & Heavy tolerates up to 95% relative humidity.
  • Floors can be walked on immediately after installation
  • M-Force™ Ceramic Enhanced Urethane is polish optional for cost-effective maintenance.

Hot & Heavy is made with 59% recycled content and a 100% virgin vinyl wear layer.  Reduced need for adhesives and  FloorScore® certification makes  Hot & Heavy an ideal choice for creating healthier interior environments.
