Broadloom and carpet tile backings are designed to reinforce durability and total performance across a full range of multi-functional spaces and interiors. From high moisture, traffic-heavy environments to high wear-and tear spaces, our EcoWorx®, EcoWorx® Performance Broadloom, EcoLogix®, StrataWorx® and Ultraloc® Pattern backings reinforce durability and performance across a full range of multi-functional spaces and interiors.
As the foundation of our products, each backing system is warranted for the life of the installation and is guaranteed not to zipper, ravel or delaminate. Low VOCs, CRI Green Label and Green Label Plus certification, and NSF 140 Certification all help contribute to the LEED® Green Building Rating System™. When paired with Eco Solution Q® or Solution Q Extreme® fiber, our Cradle to Cradle Certified™ EcoWorx® and EcoLogix® backings are also covered by our Environmental Guarantee — ensuring we'll collect and recycle it at the end of its useful life — at no additional cost.
Our 100% PVC-free high performance modular backing is designed with ingredient materials that are safe and healthy for humans and the environment. NSF 140 and Cradle to Cradle Silver Certified™, EcoWorx® was awarded the Presidential Green Chemistry Award by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for its environmental performance benefits.
What's more, choosing an EcoWorx®-backed product means choosing products that can help contribute points towards the LEED® Green Building Rating System. And thanks to smart design and construction, when your EcoWorx®–backed carpet is no longer needed, our global environmental guarantee commits that we'll pick it up and recycle it into more EcoWorx® — at no cost to you.
Made with recycled soda bottles, EcoLogix® cushion backing is a PVC–free, environmentally responsible product designed for comfort underfoot in high performance applications. EcoLogix® helps reduce leg fatigue as well as provides superior durability and delamination strength. It also passes the British Spill Test and assists in noise reduction by absorbing sound. With 88% post–consumer recycled content, EcoLogix® can contribute to the LEED® Green Building Rating System™ through recycled content, low–emitting materials and Innovation in Design.
The fiber matrix in EcoLogix pad leaves pathways for vapor to move and escape out through the seams so it does not become entrapped below the tile. EcoLogix is approved for use with no moisture testing above grade and below grade with Shaw 4151 or EcoLogix ES, a mill-applied hot melt adhesive.
EcoLogix backing is an available option on all Patcraft carpet tile styles. Contact your sales rep for ordering and sample information.
StrataWorx® tile is an innovative, lightweight polymer composite backing offering maximum efficiency in manufacturing, transportation and installation. Hitting a level of performance, benefit and cost typically only broadloom products could, StrataWorx® offers a modular solution which was previously unobtainable with carpet tile products. StrataWorx® is a perfect solution for transitionless installation with 2.5mm LVT.
Encompassing all the sustainability and performance attributes of EcoLogix®, EcoLogix® ES provides the same great qualities of EcoLogix®, but with a mill applied hot melt adhesive offering odor free and easy installation. EcoLogix® ES is ideal for high moisture installations, and requires no moisture testing as long as no visible moisture is present. The fiberglass reinforced thermoplastic layer laminated with fiber matrix secondary backing allows moisture to easily escape through the seams of the tile.
Ultraloc® Pattern premium enriched polymer backing comes standard on Patcraft loop pile products, delivering high durability and high value. A hardworking, long–lasting backing system, Ultraloc® Pattern is made to perform in high traffic areas. Available in 12–foot rolls, this backing provides excellent pattern matching capabilities, exceptional rollability, and a lifetime commercial warranty.
UltraLoc MB backing passes british spill, making it ideal for areas where spills are likely to enable easier clean-up and protection of the subfloor. When extra protection from spills is needed, UltraLoc MB can be added to any straight or shifted stitched commercial grade carpet, colorpoint up to three colors and four color colorpoint styles.
