Two weeks ago, the German television channel WDR broadcast a report on PVC flooring as part of its consumer advice programme „Servicezeit“ (‚Service Time‘). The four minutereport was entitled „New Flooring Made of PVC – Robust and Low-Maintenance“. Alongside the AGPU member company Project Floors and its Marketing Manager Marco Knop, the programme also featured statements made by Dr Ernst Schröder, the Managing Director of the „TFI-Institut für Bodensysteme“ at RWTH Aachen University, and an unnamed floor-layer.
From AGPU’s point of view, the report can be seen as positive because it clearly specifies the benefits of modern floor coverings made of PVC. The expert statements also contribute towards the favourable light in which PVC flooring is portrayed.
The TV report can be viewed in the WDR „Mediathek“ library at http://www1.wdr.de/fernsehen/ratgeber/servicezeit/sendungen/pvc-boden106.html.
