Dalton— J+J Flooring Group has introduced the first modular plank products from Kinetex textile composite flooring: Umbra and Umbra Stripe.
The sophisticated ombre patterns of Umbra and Umbra Stripe were inspired by the darkest, innermost shadow of an eclipse. This effect, when set upon a modular plank, creates a myriad of design installation possibilities ranging from sublime and refined to tailored and bold. These products are constructed of a knitted polyester fabric and cushioned polyester felt backing, and come in 18 x 36.
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.
