Nature-Inspired Flooring



Lees' NeoFloor™ NeoNaturals Collection combines the resilient flooring desired in healthcare facilities with the warmth, underfoot comfort, acoustics, slip resistance, and ease of maintenance of carpeting. Inspired by nature, the line is available in 13 authentic wood and 5 stone visuals, in 4' 11" wide rolls.

The collection also features Bioguard® by Lees, an antimicrobial treatment that controls bacteria, mold, and fungi growth. Bioguard's very short fibers form a durable, slip-resistant surface on a cushioned substrate, easily releasing dirt and dust that can be cleaned with the same machines used on resilient surfaces.
