Home Press Release Kinetex wins product innovations award at NeoCon

Chicago — Kinetex textile composite flooring has won the Grand Prize for Flooring Solutions in the 19th Annual Product Innovations Awards presented at NeoCon. The new flooring system from J+J Flooring Group won in a highly competitive field for its functionality, aesthetics, performance and productivity. Kinetex previously won a Best of NeoCon Innovation Award and was named a Top 10 Green Building Product of 2014 by Environmental Building News.

Kinetex is a patented textile composite flooring developed over two years’ time by J+J Flooring Group. The product was engineered in response to the long-standing need in the marketplace for a soft-surface flooring product that performs more like a hard surface floorcovering. The need is particularly pronounced in educational and healthcare facilities, and Kinetex responds with heightened standards for cleanability, durability, moisture management, acoustics, indoor air quality, resistance to slips and falls, and sustainability.

Kinetex fills the gap between soft and hard surface flooring by providing the warmer textile aesthetic of carpet and the performance attributes of rubber, VCT and LVT. With more than 50% recycled content and a lower mass than traditional flooring, Kinetex has 50% lower environmental impact than soft and hard surface flooring. It also offers a low cost of ownership, with lifecycle costs running 22% less than rubber flooring, 40% less than LVT and almost 25% less than VCT.

The Product Innovations Awards is a juried competition sponsored by Buildings magazine and open to all exhibitors at NeoCon, North America’s largest design exposition and conference for commercial interiors.
