Interface Backings

When you’re choosing flooring, your first thoughts are likely about the colour, design, pattern and texture.

At Interface, we also encourage you to consider the backing – the backing can contain materials to help lower the carbon footprint of the finished tile. And, it also preserves the long-lasting look, feel and performance of your floor.

Standard Backings

In most situations, our standard backings give you everything you need. We supply most of our carpet tiles with a CQuest™Bio backing, and our LVT (Luxury Vinyl Tiles) come with Sound Choice™ acoustic backing. Both are well suited to most commercial environments and proven to perform in them.

Carpet Tile - CQuest™Bio

Whatever Interface modular carpet you choose, CQuest™Bio provides the perfect backing. It is now our standard backing on all carpet tiles. CQuest™Bio contains recycled and bio-based materials. These materials, measured on a standalone basis, are net carbon negative – greatly reducing our carbon footprint.

Sound Choice Backing

LVT - Sound Choice™

Designed specifically as the integrated backing for our LVT collection, the Sound Choice acoustic backing helps your flooring reduce unwanted sound much more effectively than other hard surfaces. In particular, it reduces impact sound by 16 dB to avoid disturbances between floors and rooms. So it’s especially useful in multi-storey office buildings, as well as in education, healthcare and hospitality environments. As a standard component of our LVT tiles, Sound Choice offers acoustic insulation without the expense of fitting underlays.

Additional Carpet Tile Backings

Sometimes you might have very specific requirements – maybe because of the way the space will be used, or because of the type of subfloor, you’re working with. Whatever you need from a backing, we have it. All our backings are the result of many years of development by our product material research teams. And we test them to rigorous industry standards, to ensure they do their job – keeping your tiles dimensionally stable, in their place throughout their life, and making them easy to fit and update.

ReCushionBac Backing

ReCushion Bac

ReCushion Bac® for areas where acoustic insulation and underfoot comfort are especially important. Compared to standard carpet tile backings, ReCushion Bac® provides extra levels of protection and support. Made from two layers of our CQuest™Bio backing with a 3mm layer of closed-cell polymerised foam (85% recycled content) in between, ReCushion Bac® offers superior sound absorption, and resists crushing and flattening even with intense traffic. Also, with high recycled content in the foam, it helps increase the overall sustainability of your flooring.

Loose Lay Under Floor System

For higher levels of acoustic and ergonomic comfort, Interlay is a loose-lay resilient underfloor system designed for installation beneath your Interface carpet tiles. We supply it in 50 x 50 cm tiles, so you can use it across an entire space or limit it to smaller defined areas, and feel the benefits just where you need them.

Interlay is easy to install and its benefits are long lasting – when your carpet needs replacing, Interlay will still be going strong. You can re-use it, again and again, enjoying more comfort and less noise well into the future.

Please note Interlay is not compatible with our LVT products.
