Maidstone Intermediate was bursting at the seams when it came to fitting a class into the library. So out with the old and a sparkling new library was to be built. The staff and architect have exacting flooring requirements. They wanted the carpet to last and not wear in pathways quickly and have frayed edges within a couple of years. They wanted colour to add interest and indicate areas. They wanted NO VOC’s. (baddies in the air for adhesives drying). They wanted the product to hide soiling on those wet rainy days and they wanted the floor to sparkle. An interesting part of the brief was ‘easy patching’.
Jasmax had no hesitation in choosing Interface carpet tilefrom INZIDE Commercial. Broadloom and all its maintenance hassles is so yesterday. Carpet tile is the solution. ‘Sparkling’ had Jasmax move to the cubic colours range and with its multiple colour palette mixing colours while using the black/bronze as a base allowed many parts of the brief to be nailed. Lastly was the patching issue and NO VOC’s. INZIDE are specialists in flooring and having Interface in their stable of products allowed for the use of TAC- TILES™, a no adhesive installation system that allows for lifting up tiles for remedial works/replacement so easy yet holds the floor dimensionally stable. “It’s all about being the innovators” says Steve Aschebrock – Sales Director for INZIDE.
The brief was nailed and WOW – what a great floorplate. Exciting, fit for purpose and allows for way finding. Well done Jasmax. Excellent result.
