  • Key words: pattern diversity, forest floor, savings, Ray Anderson, sustainability, mission zero, cost reduction, 7 fronts, measurements, eco dreamteam   Two-minute interpretive talk: When Interface began its sustainability journey in 1994, sustainability was not as commonly understood as it is today. As a first step, Interface needed to define and understand sustainability and what it meant to them. Interface explored the principles underpinning sustainability, seeking to gain perspective and, above all else, to learn. This early leg of their journey brought them to authors, activists, scientists, entrepreneurs and other thought leaders whose progressive thinking would help them map our journey. Interface also reies upon the regular input of the environmental thinkers, engineers and architects who comprise their Eco Dream Team. For Interface, however, “green” is just the beginning. It is a long term commitment to sustainability, a systems-based perspective that fundamentally changed their company. It touches operations and manufacturing, it guides senior management and our associates’ decision-making, and it influences the relationships with customers, suppliers and the entire web of commerce in which they conduct business. Sustainability is part of Interface’s DNA. John Bradford, (designer? verify) talk youtube: The Interface Designers team found that there is a contrast between the control in human environment and the abundance in nature. The interior space we live in differs form the exterior space. Interior is designed based on exactness where as in nature random patterns exist Biomimicry™ Design Inspired By Nature. Inspired by the concept of Biomimicry, InterfaceFLOR uses nature as a design guide, resulting in products like Entropy® that install non directionally—reducing waste and creating even easier installation. Additionally, mergeable dye lots eliminate the need for attic stock and allow individual tiles to be removed and replaced at any time without disrupting the overall design of your floor. This concept launched what became InterfaceFLOR’s i2™ category. All i2 styles have mergeable dye lots, and many install non directionally. Entropy® The pioneer product in InterfaceFLOR's i2 Collection. Since its release in 2000, it has become one of InterfaceFLOR's most specified products. The unique pattern and coloration of each tile allows for a non directional installation that is much faster and less wasteful than traditional floorcoverings. In fact, one man can install more than two and a half times as much i2 tile in one day as he can broadloom. And i2 floors result in as little as 1.5% waste – compared to broadloom with as much as 14%. Credit Mother Nature with many changes at Interface Inc. Release date: 4/18/2008 Source: Atlanta Business Chronicle One major move by the Atlanta-based flooring firm came after company designers spent a Thoreau-esque day in the woods studying the forest floor and stream beds. "They came to realize that no two things are alike -- no two sticks, no two stones, no two leaves," said Interface Inc. Chairman Ray Anderson. "It's total chaos, yet there's a pleasant orderliness in the chaos." From this emerged the company's Entropy line of carpet tiles, which are similar but not identical to one another. Result: Few tiles were trashed in production due to imperfections. Workmen could install tiles far faster with little waste because the naps didn't have to run in the same direction. Tiles could be rotated to increase wear, and new tiles could replace worn ones without standing out in "sore-thumb" fashion. In short, breaking the industrial paradigm -- the insistence on perfection and sameness -- was good for the environment. TacTiles® No Glue Installation. InterfaceFLOR’s revolutionary TacTiles installation system eliminates the need for glue, adhering carpet tiles securely together to form a floor that “floats” for greater flexibility, easier replacement and long-term performance. The TacTiles system provides a durable installation without permanent adhesion. The result? Less mess, less waste and greater savings, not to mention an environmental footprint that is over 90% lower than that of traditional glue adhesives. Released in 2006. - Carpet tile installation system, inspired by many examples of adhesion without glue in nature, eliminates need for glue – No VOCs - Allows carpet tile installation on hard surfaces without damaging the substrate Press relaese, Date:15 November 2006 Contact: Lisa Lilienthal, 404.661.3679 lisalilienthal@earthlink.net: How does a Gecko cling to the ceiling? That’s the question, posed at an “out of the box” brainstorming session at InterfaceFLOR, inspiring the newest innovation based on biomimicry to come from the company that brought modular floorcovering to the U.S. more than 30 years ago. Though the answer does not utilize van der Waal forces (or intermolecular bonding), as the Gecko does, it is nevertheless completely revolutionary: TacTiles are patent-pending 3 x 3 inch adhesive squares made from polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic--the same material that is used to make soda bottles. They are affixed to the backing of adjoining InterfaceFLOR carpet tiles, bonding the tiles to each other to create a ‘floating floor’. Because TacTiles contain no liquid components, their use virtually eliminates the issue of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), so they can be installed almost anywhere at any time, even in an occupied space.TacTiles allow installers to lay carpet tiles directly on top of most hard surfaces without permanently attaching the carpet to the substrate. TacTiles offer the stability and durability of a permanent installation without permanent adhesion, enabling greater modular flexibility in wall-to-wall installations as well as moveable, area rug applications.Lower Environmental Impact, Time Saved “TacTiles reflect the company's Mission ZeroTM promise by providing “total performance with zero glue,” said John Bradford, vice president of research and development for InterfaceFLOR Commercial. “The use of TacTiles vs. traditional glue showed a 90% lower environmental impact when preliminary life cycle assessment (LCA) studies were conducted. TacTiles also reduces waste from the installation process. Instead of bringing rollers, fans, spray equipment and/or four–pound buckets of glue to the site, installers using TacTiles bring only two-pound boxes of TacTiles and a four-pound dispenser.” The only byproducts resulting from a TacTiles installation are a three-inch- wide liner ribbon that can be recycled like a soda bottle, and a recyclable cardboard core. “ Mission Zero gives voice to our commitment to consider the environmental impact of every creative, manufacturing and building decision we make as a company,” said David Hobbs, president of InterfaceFLOR Commercial. “Mission Zero is our promise to eliminate any negative impact our company may have on the environment by 2020, and TacTiles takes us further down that path by minimizing the environmental footprint of the installation process.”TacTiles can be recycled when InterfaceFLOR tiles are reclaimed via the company’s carpet reclamation program, ReEntry®. TacTiles can be cut to remove the floor as individual tiles or in small sections that can be stacked on a pallet and returned to Interface to be recycled into new carpet backing through the company’s Cool BlueTM technology. TacTiles reduce time required for installation because there is no drying time as with glue. The adhesive used on TacTiles allows for vertical movement and repositioning during installation, yet within a few hours TacTiles form a bond with the backing that makes them virtually unmovable on a horizontal plane. If replacement of one or a few tiles is required after a period of time, TacTiles’ adhesive is formulated to release on a vertical plane so the tile peels away easily.More than three years in development, TacTiles were created specifically to work with InterfaceFLOR Commercial’s GlasBac® and GlasBac® RE backing systems. “Backing stability is integral to the success of TacTiles and the adhesion properties we formulated enable a secure, yet flexible, installation method,” said Bradford. “Without that stability built into our backing enabling it to ‘grab’ the floor, TacTiles would not be possible. Products unlike ours that aren’t as stable require glue to hold them in place on the floor.” InterfaceFLOR Commercial brought modular carpet technology and the concept of freelay carpet capability to North America 33 years ago.The ergonomically designed TacTile dispenser enables the most efficient TacTiles installation. The dispenser attaches to the installers tool belt and around the installer’s leg for easy access. A simple press of the lever dispenses TacTiles one at a time, in one fluid motion.Based in LaGrange, Georgia, InterfaceFLOR, LLC is the pioneer of modular carpet in the United States. InterfaceFLOR Commercial is a division of Interface, Inc. EcoMetrics EcoMetrics™ is a measurement system Interface created in 1994 to track our progress toward our sustainability goals.  It measures how much we take in of our materials and energy and what comes out, in the form of products and waste.  Key metrics include waste reduction, renewable energy, carbon emissions, water and energy usage, and percentage of recycled and bio-based materials in products.  Each Interface plant tracks and reports on hundreds of metrics quarterly.
