J+J Flooring Group - What is Kinetex?

 

Many thanks to J+J Flooring Group for hosting our IIDA Board Retreat this month! It was great to be able to tour their factory and learn about their products.

 
 
One of their most recent innovations is Kinetex Flooring. If you haven't seen this product, you have to check it out!  http://www.jjflooringgroup.com/what-is-kinetex/
 

 
 
"Kinetex is an advanced textile composite flooring that combines key attributes of soft-surface floor covering with the long-wearing performance characteristic of hard-surface flooring."
  
 
 
 
The key to its high-performance capabilities lies within the way it is constructed. Each layer works together to create a product with parallel qualities to those of hard-surface materials.
 
 

 
 
 
Where to use?  Anywhere you'd use a hard-surface material!  Healthcare, Education, Retail, Hospitality, Corporate, Transportation - just to name a few.  It's also as recyclable as an aluminum can.  With a lower mass, Kinetex has a 50% lower environmental impact compared to other commercial floorings.  http://www.jjflooringgroup.com/what-is-kinetex/kinetex-attributes/sustainability/

Harvard Graduate School of Design: The Trays


The Graduate School of Design’s tiered, open spaces fire the imagination.
 
Before Gund Hall was built in 1972, the Harvard Graduate School of Design was scattered across five separate buildings. Architect John Andrews M.Arch. ’58 brought the school together under one roof. At the heart of the new construction was “the trays,” an enormous multi-tiered studio space.
