Beautiful and practical: InterfaceFLOR modular carpet offers hassle-free maintenance for all types of public spaces.
Selective replacement = Maintenance that’s a snap. When it comes to maintenance, InterfaceFLOR beats broadloom and hard surfaces across the board. One big reason why? Our glue-free modular flooring allows selective replacement. When a module becomes damaged or soiled, your in-house maintenance staff can replace it individually — in seconds. With selective replacement, there are no bulky carpet rolls, complicated cutting or outside contractors to contend with. Plus, because you only have to replace individual modules, you don’t have to move heavy furniture or disrupt schedules.
Color and quality designed to stand the test of time. To understand how InterfaceFLOR modular flooring is designed to hold its color, consider a carrot and a radish. Solution dyed fiber is like a carrot, colored throughout, while non solution dyed fiber is like a radish, with only surface color. The vast majority of InterfaceFLOR modular flooring is constructed with 100% premium solution dyed nylon fiber, meaning color stays true over the long haul. It even holds up against sunlight, most bleaches and other staining liquids that can ruin conventional carpet. Plus, it resists stains and is easy to clean.
Flooring that won’t fade, resists stains and is a cinch to clean. How’s that for a dangling carrot?
FOR LONG-LASTING COLOR, GO FOR THE CARROT Non solution dyed fiber is like a radish, with only surface color. Solution dyed fiber is like a carrot, colored throughout.

Keep your investment on the floor, not in the landfill. Ready to be floored? Then consider that a 100,000 square foot building installed with broadloom creates an average of 14% waste. At $18 per square yard, that’s $28,000 – right into the trash. By contrast, modular flooring averages 3.9% waste – and even as low as 1.5% for our i2™ non directional styles. In other words, it doesn’t take a skilled Sudoku player to know that modular flooring can add up to serious cost savings for your facility.
Broadloom Waste vs. Carpet Tile Waste
Spruce up style in corridors with InterfaceFLOR’s array of eye pleasing colors, patterns and textures.
InterfaceFLOR: A truly smooth move for your senior living facility. Are your residents and staff tired of navigating chairs and carts over lumpy, bumpy broadloom or too-slick vinyl? Then consider InterfaceFLOR modular flooring – and help everyone get around easier. InterfaceFLOR products perform well on rolling traffic resistance tests as compared to other floorcoverings and competitive products. Our carpet tile features dense construction and an even, smooth level of face fiber, ideal for walkers and shuffling feet. And lower resistance means easier movement of carts, chairs and other wheeled objects – a big plus for residents, staff and guests.

Intersept, our proprietary preservative, keeps dining areas and other interiors fresh.
Minimize odor and mold growth with Intersept®. Carpet is routinely exposed to spills that can harbor bacteria and mold and cause odor. That’s why we incorporated Intersept into the backing, which: •Is incorporated into the primary backing of all InterfaceFLOR modular carpet products •Effectively protects the carpet against a broad spectrum of odor-causing microorganisms, mold, and bacteria •Unlike most topical preservative applications, won’t wash away during standard maintenance procedures •Has low toxicity and no heavy metals, arsenic, phenols or formaldehyde •Helps modular flooring stay fresher and last longer, giving you a better return on your floorcovering investment Simply put, no other floorcovering includes a preservative that’s as safe and effective.
Give your old carpet new life with ReEntry® 2.0. Wondering what to do with all that dingy old broadloom? Our ReEntry 2.0 recycling program is a solution that makes both staffs and Mother Nature happy. With ReEntry 2.0, we’ll reclaim nearly any carpet type – broadloom or carpet tile – saving it from the landfill. In addition to recycling vinyl carpet backing into new backing, we also cleanly separate the face fiber from the backing and recycle it too. Thanks to ReEntry 2.0, InterfaceFLOR has kept more than 200 million pounds of carpet out of landfills since 1994. How many pounds can we help your facility save?

Modular carpet adds unique style and universal appeal to residentsâ€™ rooms.
Breathe easy with InterfaceFLOR modular flooring. Unlike VCT, modular flooring acts as a filter and captures airborne contaminates below the breathing zone, where they can be removed through routine cleaning. Another bonus? All InterfaceFLOR carpet tile manufactured in North America meets the highest standards for indoor air quality, including the Carpet & Rug Institute (CRI) Green Label Plusâ„˘ criteria. A breath of fresh air, indeed.

Minimize noise with modular flooring. The ability to create a soothing, quiet environment from the floor up sounds pretty good, doesnâ€™t it? InterfaceFLOR modular flooring enhances every interior by absorbing and minimizing disruptive sounds, from clinking utensils in the cafeteria to rowdy grandkids in the hallway. In fact, our products absorb five times more airborne sound than VCT.
Our carpet tiles’ quality construction and dense fibers do plenty of heavy lifting in fitness areas.
InterfaceFLOR provides comfort from the floor up. Wooden or vinyl floors are hard on joints – not to mention, they’re painful surfaces when a fall does occur. Choose InterfaceFLOR products and you just may see a new skip in the step of your residents and staff. Our modular flooring is comfortable to walk and stand on and creates better, more comfortable living and working environments. Plus, as hybrid products – which means they’re made of structured vinyl backing and a textile face – InterfaceFLOR products may also help to reduce the instance and severity of slips and falls. InterfaceFLOR: A choice everyone will be comfortable with.
