    Exploring Coloration of Fibers in Commercial Carpet - Dyeing, Testing and Specifying

    A very important consideration for those specifying carpet for commercial interiors is carpet construction and fiber type. But, in addition to these factors a specifier must consider how the carpet is dyed. This course will cover carpet fiber types, different methods of dye application and types of dyestuffs, why color and pattern selection is important, and how different fiber types perform in carpet industry tests where color could be affected.

    Specification of Flooring Surfaces (PRINT COURSE)

    Specifying the right flooring and installation products for the appropriate application can be challenging. Whether specifying tile, hardwood, carpet, or resilient flooring, there are basic specification considerations that encompass the very broad category of flooring. From flooring type and auxiliary products to surface preparation, installation, maintenance and accessibility, specifiers have many decisions to make that they then must clearly convey in a specification. This learning unit will cover the range of considerations such as function, performance, application, cost, environmental impacts and aesthetics that can all influence a flooring specification.

    Sustainability: An Everyday Practice, Not Just An Idea

    This course explains how the concept of the "Triple Bottom Line" − which addresses the environmental, economic and human impacts of product specifications - can be applied to selecting high performance, sustainable flooring. The course describes key criteria that can be used to compare flooring products and to select products that minimize environmental impacts, maximize economic benefits and, at the same time, create people-friendly spaces that increase health and productivity. The course ends with a review of the key sustainability advantages of a variety of resilient flooring applications. Enroll

    The Language of Color

    Selecting colors that match can be a challenge to design professionals, who will learn in this course, the language of color and a scientific numeric system for color control. Interactive exercises demonstrate the subjectivity of visual color selection and the factors that influence color. When specifying color the design professional will learn the importance of stringent color tolerances on raw materials, color checks at various stages of the manufacturing process as well as uniform numeric standards. By learning the science of color, and the importance of manufacturer controls, the design professional can eliminate costly project errors and meet design objectives. Enroll

    New Sustainable and Aesthetic Options in Finishing Borders

    Finishing borders, also referred to as wall base, are the architect’s solution for concealing the gap between the wall and the floor in the built environment. This building component provides the finishing touch to a space as well as general protection from the open exposure between the drywall and the floorboards. In the past, designers have chosen the right wall base for a project based on the color, style, material and cost. Now, as the design community and building owners become more invested in the idea of green building and sustainable design, designers want the ability to evaluate wall base solutions on the basis of the product’s overall sustainability as well.

    Designing Memory Care Facilities

    Over the last 20 years, study after study has empirically proven something that many professionals in the design community have known, or at the very least have surmised, for awhile. The design of the built environment can have a real and tangible impact on the people within. Schools can be designed to enhance student performance. Office spaces can be designed to improve employee productivity and satisfaction. Hospitals can be designed to promote healing and minimize medical errors. One of the newest applications where the impact of design is still being realized is in long-term care facilities designed specifically to accommodate people living with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, often called memory care facilities.

    Improving IAQ by Reducing TVOC

    This learning unit will provide a general overview of how indoor air quality (IAQ) is defined and quantified today, and how poor IAQ can impact the health and safety of occupants. Also, this course will identify common contributors to poor IAQ and specifically look at how Total Volatile Organic Compounds (TVOCs) play an important part in understanding IAQ. As part of a strategy to improve IAQ, students will be introduced to modern flooring systems that focus on reduced TVOCs and certification programs available to better evaluate and choose healthy and durable flooring products.
