This award, first presented in 1950, is the oldest award for product design. Winners emerge from several thousand submissions from 35 nations, with eight awards in the industrial category.

Wolff Offers a Unique Design Collection Kit

Released in 2010, the Wolff Design Collection Kit is the only one of its kind in the marketplace. Except for the mitre-box scissors, Wolff designed every tool in the kit and produced them in their factories. The kit consists of a Linocut seam cutter for perfect joints in all resilient floor coverings and needle punch carpet, FasTrimmer for quick and safe trimming of fibres that remain from cutting the flooring material. Also used to bevel edges of sheets, the ergonomic Duo pressure roller ensures firm sealing of joints, and a pair of mitre-box scissors for accessing small corners of the floor covering, such as along mitre joints around doors.

Wolff Addresses The Importance of Subfloor Preparation

Preparation of subfloors before installing flooring requires an array of tools. Wolff offers a wide range of products for grinding, cleaning, levelling, milling, shampooing, polishing. to name a few. They are a one-stop supplier with a reputation for excellence related to tools for the professional installer. Their Subfloor Preparation Guide discusses the steps and tools in depth.

Wolff Strippers Are The Efficient, Quick Way To Remove Existing Flooring

Removing a glued-down floor sounds like it should be easy. In reality, using the proper machines and tools is critical. Depending upon the floor type, choose from Wolff's oscillating or impact technology and drive. The most often used oscillating method features blades that rotate ellipictally to cut the adhesive bond between the substrate flooring and the actual floor covering. They feature this in their Vario and Duro-Strippers, best suited for carpeting or slightly flexible flooring.

However, when dealing with linoleum, some carpeting and other rigid floor coverings, adhered with visco-plastic adhesives, Wolff's Extro or Turbo Stripper is a proven choice. These strippers feature an automatic drive system combined with a 5,000 beat-per-minute impact system.
