Two vinyl sheet flooring ranges from Armstrong Flooring Pty Ltd were specified for the Casuarina Secondary College in Darwin, Northern Territory. Australis, a homogeneous sheet vinyl floor featuring a contemporary colour palette, and Safeguard R12, a slip resistant vinyl sheet flooring product were selected by architecture firm Mode Design Darwin for the installation.


The Australian made Australis vinyl flooring combines a bold tone-on-tone appeal with excellent durability and maintenance characteristics. Especially suitable for facilities subject to high daily use, Australis comes in a broad range of neutrals and subtle accents to complement any interior. The low maintenance, protective polyurethane reduces initial and ongoing maintenance and increases scuff resistance. Key benefits also include ease of installation, homogenous construction for excellent dent and gouge resistance, and embossed surface texture and multi-colour chip visual assisting with maintenance while concealing soiling and wear patterns.

The Australis range finds application in education, healthcare, retail, office, light industrial and hospitality environments. Australis colours selected for the Casuarina Secondary College installation include Newcastle Coal, Wannon Green, Andamooka Purple and Gambier Blue.

Safeguard R12

Safeguard R12 slip resistant vinyl sheet flooring offers durable safety floors for some of the most demanding environments and applications.

Safeguard R12 features an embossed texture combined with silicon carbide on the surface, and aluminium oxide and quartz throughout the homogeneous wear layer to provide long term slip resistance characteristics. Designed to meet or exceed slip resistance properties recommended by Australian Standards, the low maintenance vinyl floor has a high quality PVC wear layer for excellent dent and gouge resistance.

Safeguard R12 is specified for applications in kitchens, food serveries, hospitality, healthcare, education, retail, light industrial, office and amenities.

Safeguard R12’s Storm Grey colour was used in the Casuarina Secondary College installation.
