At its 20th Anniversary Annual Meeting earlier this month, Starnet Worldwide Commercial Flooring Partnership unveiled Starnet Healthcare Solutions, a new partnership with Mannington Commercial. Starnet Healthcare Solutions is designed to be a coordinated, holistic approach to how healthcare products are designed, bundled, delivered, installed, maintained and sustainably removed at the end of their useful life.

“Starnet developed the Healthcare Solutions line with our partners at Mannington Commercial to fill a void in the commercial market,” stated Jeanne Matson, president & CEO of Starnet Worldwide Commercial Flooring. “This is a well-designed collection developed for those healthcare facilities which want beautiful interiors without extensive design services.”  

Starnet Healthcare Solutions includes a portfolio of Mannington products designed to meet the demand's of today's healthcare spaces. All of the products emphasize high performance and low maintenance, as well as aesthetics that coordinate with healthcare finishes and engineering for smart, smooth transitions between surfaces. Starnet brings its full suite of services in purchasing, installation, service and reclamation to the products, leveraging its worldwide network of contractors and affiliates.

“We believe this is a unique business-building opportunity for both Starnet and Mannington Commercial,” noted Fred Williamson, Vice President of Operations, Starnet. “The design work and product quality is outstanding and we are proud to present this collection as a Starnet initiative.”

The two carpet collections in Starnet Healthcare Solutions are unique to the program. The Affinity Collection and Composition Collection from Mannington Commercial are offered with a full range of coordinating products from Mannington Commercial – LVT, homogeneous sheet, heterogeneous sheet, rubber tile, wall base and VCT. Each product in the offering is designed complement the others, as well as transition together within a space.

"Starnet Healthcare Solutions unites our ability to bring so many products to the table with Starnet legendary service, creating long-term, mutually beneficial relationships for healthcare end users," said Kurt Topp, Vice President–Sales at Mannington Commercial.

"As product manufacturers, we're always looking for ways to ensure that our products are delivered, installed, maintained and reclaimed according to their highest and best use," added Jack Ganley, President of Mannington Commercial. “It's hard to imagine a better partner than Starnet in this effort, and we're delighted to be teaming up with them on this program.”

The carpet products in the program are constructed of Antron 6,6 nylon to resist soil penetration, wear, matting and crushing. XGUARD stain resistance technology is designed to prevent color fading and reduce maintenance, while ColorSafe bleach resistance technology resists color fade-out from bleach spills and splashes. Mannington designed Classics to be a low-emitting carpet to LEED standards, as well as being certified CRI Green Label Plus.

The hard surface floorings also include Quantum Guard HP, Mannington's patented high performance wear layer with urethane aluminum oxide cured by a UV process, to further increase stain and slip resistance, cleanability, appearance retention and overall durability. Extended warranties are also available through the program.
