Key Properties:

Low VOC

easily removable/adjustable

TacTiles

Product Description

TacTiles replace adhesives when used to install Interface Commercial modular carpet with GlasBac® and GlasBac RE backings, only. TacTiles use a small quantity of a pressure sensitive adhesive, applied on one side of a polyester film, to connect Interface Commercial carpet modules together to form a stable surface over almost any hard surface.

Technical and Environmental Benefits

Convenience - With nearly no VOCs (volatile organic compounds), InterfaceFlor Glasbac and GlasbacRE can be installed at any time using TacTiles, even when associates are in teh building. There are nearly no detectable emissions or odours.

Ease of Use - Using TacTiles creates a durable installation without permanent adhesion, making it easy to remove, replace and recyle.

Closing the loop - TacTiles can simply be recycled along with the InterfaceFlor Glasbac and GlasbacRE carpet tile itself.

Green Star NZ - Can contribute towards points for low VOC in Green Star NZ projets.

Tool Credit Points Available Contribution Symbol Contribution Potential Detail
Office V.1   IEQ - 13  3   tick  1 point  

This credit rewards the use of low VOC paints, carpets and adhesives or the avoidance of these products in the first place. Based on the fact that Adhesive tapes are excluded from the VOC requirements in the Green Star 2009 tools and the fact that TacTiles has received Green Label Plus low VOC certification, it is well suited for use in a Green Star NZ building. Due to the wording of the Office Design and Built Technical Manual, a CIR may be required to secure the point.

Symbol Manner in which the product may contribute towards points
Products must meet specific criteria (e.g. Paint VOC emissions, carpets, etc)
Products may help achieve points by their very nature, if they are specified and included in the design in accordance with Green Star NZ requirements (e.g. bicycle racks)
Products may help achieve an outcome but they must be used in a specific manner (e.g. lightingcontrol and zoning systems) OR this product can contribute towards the outcome but many other products or factor influence that same outcome (e.g. Potable Water Calculator)
