Inovar luxury vinyl floor tiles

These are made primarily from polyvinyl chloride resins and plasticisers. These tiles emulate the natural beauty of slate, marble, travertine and wood. Inovar luxury vinyl tiles are anti-bacterial (the top layer is coated with nano-sized silver molecules that inhibit bacteria growth). They are also extremely durable due to a coating of nano-sized micro-ceramic glass beads on the next layer, and waterproof, making them ideal for bathrooms and kitchens. Affordable and attractive, these vinyl tiles are perfect for commercial spaces such as cafes, offices and passageways. They are easy to clean – use soapy water and a mop that is damp but not dripping.

Rubber flooring

Ocean Ventures' vinyl rubber interlocking tiles and mats come in black, grey, blue, red and yellow. Choose from studded, leather grain or checker plate.


  • Interlocking tiles – 450mm x 450 mm and 500mm x 500mm. The thickness varies from 4mm to 7mm

Access floors

Ocean Ventures supplies and installs quality access floor systems from Germany. These are raised floors that provide an elevated structural floor above a solid substrate, creating a hidden passage for wiring, and mechanical and electrical equipment. Access floors are ideal for modern office buildings, computer rooms, control rooms and server rooms, training and research rooms, and construction areas. Once access floors are fitted, you will save long-term costs and time by avoiding the need for repeated dismantling of trunking and cable housing.

Ocean Ventures Ltd · Building materials


Ocean Ventures supplies high-quality timber, timber products and panelling for the building industry - structural timber, plywood, shutter ply, melamine boards, doors, particle boards and medium density fibreboard. The company has knowledgeable staff that can advise you on the best timber product to use for a particular project.

Ocean Ventures offers the following timber products:

Structural timber

Structural timber is strong and dimensionally stable. It comes in two types – hardwood and softwood. Hardwood structural timber is ideal for bearers, joists, lintels and windows, while softwood (mainly pine) is perfect for wall frames and roof trusses.


Plywood comes in panels that are highly resistant to impacts, chemicals, and changes in environmental temperature and humidity. Plywood is a sheet material made of three or more thin layers of wood that are glued together with adjacent layers having their wood grain rotated up to 90 degrees to one another. Plywood panels have superior dimensional stability with an excellent strength-to-weight ratio. Plywood applications include:

  • Doors
  • Exterior and interior stairs
  • External cladding
  • Shear walls
  • Framing
  • Flooring
  • Timber joinery products

Shutter ply

This type of wood is used for pouring concrete into molds. Shuttered plywood is constructed in such a way that it forms a mould which is weather resistant and will not stick to the concrete itself. It is also used for subfloors and as a covering where a high-quality finish is not required.

Melamine boards

This wood panel product is manufactured from wood particles and a resin which is pressed and extruded. Melamine boards are resistant to fire and very tolerant to heat. The board is a very versatile material with a range of applications that include:

  • Floor tiles
  • Insulation
  • Whiteboard
  • Timber joinery products

Medium-density fibreboard (MDF)

Designed and manufactured for a variety of purposes for both interior and exterior applications, MDF is made by breaking down hardwood or softwood residuals into fibres and combining it with wax and a resin binder. Applications include:

  • Exterior cladding for housing
  • Kitchen counters (due to its fire resistant)
  • Doors
  • Table tops
  • Office storage
  • Tough environment storage
