Dalton—J+J Flooring Group recently introduced two new Kinetex products: Put a Cork in It and Tri-Plex. Both feature the human-centered properties for which Kinetex products are known, along with contemporary and appealing designs. This versatility offers unmatched flexibility for designers to create the commercial spaces they envision.
Boasting a name that matches its clever and quirky design, Put a Cork in It is an approachable yet distinctive 24 x 24 tile. Multi-tonal cork-like flecks appear through 16 colorways creating a pattern that brings an unexpected level of character and personality. Tri-Plex is a 24 x 24 modular tile and offers a balanced mix of modern patterning, crisp color and unsurpassed product performance. Tri-Plex features 12 colorways that can easily be mixed and matched for a unique installation. Both Tri-Plex and Put a Cork in It can be paired with the company’s new LVT or carpet products.
Through innovative design, construction and materials, Put a Cork in It and Tri-Plex contribute to better acoustics, greater comfort, improved traction (when compared to a hard surface) and enhanced indoor air quality, according to J+J. Both products come standard with PreFix, a pre-applied releasable adhesive allowing the ability to install over concrete with an RH up to 99%, reducing the need for costly moisture mitigation.
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.
