Patcraft, a leader in high-performance commercial flooring, has introduced its first non-woven composite flooring collection, Dichroic. Designed to create an innovative platform for commercial flooring featuring a new option in materiality, the Dichroic flooring gives the warmth of soft surface and the durability and cleanability of hard surface.

With rich colourways that encourage optical depth and aid in the design of warmer, optimistic spaces, the collection’s sweeping colour gradation creates a compelling ombre effect. Dichroic is available in both facet and 24”x 24” tiles to offer a variety of installation options.

“The soft visual of the Dichroic collection develops from tonal stripes that fade and shift across a space, mimicking the subtle variation of a felted texture to create a beautiful ombre effect,” said Shannon Cochran, vice president of creative and design for Patcraft. “The Patcraft design team sought to design a collection that resembles the effect of glass transparency. The two different shapes play with optical perceptions using a series of solid gradients.”

Dichroic is an innovative product featuring a multilayer, non-woven composite produced from plastic waste to create felt-like construction. By utilising recycled plastic bottles that have been converted into PET fibre, Dichroic has approximately 70 per cent recycled content (both post-consumer and post-industrial), which is equivalent to 18 (0.5L) bottles in each 24”x 24” tile. Products are Cradle to Cradle Certified Bronze and are backed by Patcraft’s environmental guarantee specifying that the company will reclaim and recycle the product at the end of its useful life.

The Dichroic collection combines shape and colour for multiple design options that support colour blocking and zoning spaces within commercial interiors. The rich polyester face fibre contributes to enhancing sound absorption, and the collection is designed and tested to meet Patcraft’s high standard for performance flooring. Dichroic is constructed with EcoWorx backing, and products are backed with limited lifetime warranties against stain, colourfastness to light, static and abrasive wear for maximum performance and appearance retention.
