Overview

Interface Inc. is a world-leading modular flooring company with a fully integrated collection of carpet tiles and resilient flooring (LVT). At Interface, they create floors that combine visual appeal, functional performance and design freedom. They do this with modular carpet, a concept they invented to meet the fast-changing needs of the workplace. Furthermore, their Concept Design team can help you realise the perfect space. Interface's sustainability journey began in 1994 when the company made a promise to eliminate any negative impact it has on the environment by 2020. Known as Mission Zero, this became a goalpost for Interface, influencing everything from the way in which materials are sourced, to the manufacturing processes involved. Climate Take Back is the next step in Interface’s sustainability journey. This ambitious approach to sustainability will take Interface beyond restorative practices, to focusing on regenerative operations. The mission is made up of four key pillars: Live Zero - Love Carbon – Let Nature Cool - Leading Industry Re-revolution. Through Climate Take Back, Interface is illustrating businesses can lead the way in creating a climate fit for life, by looking to nature for inspiration and setting an example others can follow.

It will cover the following:
- The basics of acoustics and why it’s important to consider acoustics at the design stage and so select the right materials.
- Acoustic tests, which for flooring are sound absorption and impact sound transmission
- key technical terms are explained to help cut through some of the confusion about acoustic results and manufacturers claims.
- Typical acoustic results for flooring and how that can contribute to the acoustics of a space relative to other surfaces (materials).
