Atlanta, Ga.—Interface introduced its newest resilient offering, Even Path. Rigid core flooring offers Interface customers the performance of long-lasting hard flooring with the convenience of resilient tile, according to the company.
Even Path features high-quality wood and stone designs engineered to withstand heavy static loads and hide subfloor imperfections. Interface said it designed its rigid core products for hard-working spaces and today’s commercial market.
“We continuously evolve our product portfolio to ensure we deliver a variety of flooring solutions to align with our customers’ needs,” said Lisa King, vice president and chief innovation officer, Interface. “As LVT continues to grow in a big way across the commercial sector, we saw an opportunity to expand our resilient offerings. Our customers were looking for enduring designs with a rigid, flat finish that feature glue-free installation and are easy to maintain. Rigid core delivers all of these performance benefits. We engineered an innovative rigid core construction designed specifically for use in commercial environments, featuring a design aesthetic that beautifully conveys the intricate details of solid wood and monumental stone.”
Performance in every tile
Interface said it designed its rigid core products for maximum durability as well as optimal flexibility. At the tile’s center is its rigid core layer, which enables the product to withstand heavy static loads with minimal residual indentations. On its surface, the CeramorX coating and wear layer double-up to provide a shield from scratches, scuffs and abrasions.
This construction delivers high performance for busy commercial spaces, while the product’s glue-free, drop-click installation system reduces floor prep and is quick to install, according to the company.
“We welcomed the opportunity to engineer a product that took resilience and aesthetics to the next level,” said Sajal Patel, global director, resilient, Interface. “With advanced designs and an impressive palette of natural colors, our rigid core products make an impression on their own and are equally as beautiful when paired with Interface LVT, carpet tile and nora rubber. Because all of our products are designed to work together, the addition of rigid core flooring to our product portfolio provides our customers with heavy-duty performance where they need it most.”
Commitment to sustainability
As part of its Climate Take Back mission to reverse global warming, Interface said it continues to consider how it can reduce the carbon footprint of all its products as it endeavors to become a carbon negative enterprise by 2040. Building off of its decades-long sustainability journey, the company said it intends to drive innovation and transparency in the rigid core category through the delivery of new material formulations, Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) and third-party certifications.
