Carpet Tile Backing

One of the top secrets of our success is what lies beneath

At Interface, we understand the importance of a strong foundation—it’s been the basis of our continual improvement upon the traditional benefits of carpet. So it’s no surprise that our innovative backing systems are responsible for the enhanced performance and durability of our modular carpet tiles. They’re what enable our carpet tile to resist moisture and be moved and updated with ease.

Each of our three main backing systems - GlasBac®, GlasBacRE and CushionBacRE® - provide a unique benefit, but all offer superior dimensional stability and carry a standard 15 year warranty against excessive surface wear, edge ravel, backing separation, shrinking and stretching.

Best Practice PVC

Best Practice PVC backing that complies with the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) and Singapore Green Building Council (SGBC) Best Practice requirements are available. Interface can provide written declaration of compliance which is acceptable to the GBCA and SGBC as demonstration that Interface carpet tile backing is compliant with the Best Practice Guidelines.

Declarations for Australia and Singapore can be provided specifically for your project upon request.
