Milliken - Carpet tiles
FACET is the latest carpet tile collection to come from Milliken’s ‘inspired and prolific’ UK design team, the company says. Fine lines converge to create geometric outlines out of which multi-faceted reflections emerge. There are three designs within the collection: Facet, Facet Accents and Facet Transitions. The three designs are said to allow for flexibility, imagination and experimentation in laying out the floor plane. The Facet collection has reportedly been created using Milliken’s patented Millitron digital patterning technology. Using Millitron, patterns can be created to randomize across the floor, providing the opportunity for intriguing transition effects as well as suggesting movement and variation. Said to be developed with ease of use and simplicity of coordination in mind, Facet is offered in a range of ‘practical greys, pretty aquas, silvers, zesty lime, acid lemon, burnt orange and inky indigo’.
Facet comes with Milliken’s patented Comfort Lite cushion backing as standard, designed to enhance well-being. The cushion backing reportedly not only offers underfoot comfort but also improves acoustics. High noise levels have been shown to increase stress levels, which in turn can have a big impact on workers’ overall health and wellness. Milliken cushion backed carpet tiles are said to absorb 50% more noise than hardback carpet, which in turn absorb three times as much noise as hard surface flooring. Said to be constructed in a high performance textured loop, Facet has been designed for projects where clients might be constrained by a tighter budget.
Facet comes in a 50sq cm tile format and is available within 10 days of ordering as part of Milliken’s quick ship programme. The carpet tiles’ backing is made from 90% recycled content cushion backing. To further reduce its environmental impact, Facet can be supplied with TractionBack for adhesive free installation, said to improve indoor air quality and reducing material usage. Facet is reportedly produced in an ISO14001 certified facility in Wigan, UK using ethically sourced and wherever possible, locally produced, materials. The collection is certified CRI Green Label Plus and is EPD verified.
