Commercial Flooring Report - Optimizing Flooring Performance

This issue is dedicated to my dear friend Dan Blake who passed away suddenly on February 13, 2016 — Lew Migliore
In commercial flooring applications it’s important to make sure the flooring being selected and specified is appropriate for the application.  We’ve talked about making sure the right product gets into the right place but we’ll look at what makes the product the right one to use so it delivers the performance, life expectancy and appearance retention expected and then some.
The most complex of flooring products for commercial use is carpet.  The components and engineering that go into making a carpet a high or low performing textile floor covering material are more involved than for hard surface flooring – with all due respect.  Vinyl flooring for example may have a thicker wear layer, be thicker overall or have layered in it components that categorize it for a particular application and a particular kind of backing but the list is short compared to carpet as you’ll see.
