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 main backing systems - GlasBac®, GlasBacRE, Graphlar® / Graphlex®, CushionBac Renew™ and ReadyBac™ - 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.
Our GlasBac® backing has been in production since 1973, and continues to set the industry standard. Our GlasBac backed carpet tile products offer an average of 64-78% total recycled content depending on the yarn type and weight.
Styles using our high post-consumer recycled content GlasBacRE with our 100% recycled content Type 6 nylon feature up to 93% total recycled content, including as much as 30% post-consumer content.
Our CushionBac Renew™ backing features a 21 oz. felt cushion that provides high performance, high recycled content, a lower carbon footprint, greater underfoot comfort and increased sound absorption.
Graphlar / Graphlex
Graphlar® / Graphlex® backings are reinforced carbon composite backing systems used with products such as Super Flor™ and Touch of Timber™, which are made in our European facilities. They feature exceptional dimensional stability.
ReadyBac™ is made to handle your high moisture projects. It features our high performance GlasBac backing with a 4 oz. attached felt cushion that adds comfort underfoot and directs moisture away from the floor’s substrate, providing protection for up to 99% RH with a pH of 8.0-12.0.
