In floor­ing, even sub­tle in­no­va­tions can make liv­ing in your home eas­ier. Here is a sam­pling of re­cent im­prove­ments. Touch tech­nol­ogy makes the new ther­mo­stat from Warm Up fully in­ter­ac­tive. As it works with ra­di­ant floor heat­ing sys­tems, the ther­mo­stat mon­i­tors elec­tric en­ergy use and rec­om­mends ideal tem­per­a­ture ad­just­ments. In a step away from the ubiq­ui­tous white box, the ther­mo­stat comes in black, sil­ver, white, cream, blue, green, pur­ple and pink. Weav­ing car­pet from glass fiber coated with vinyl gives the tiles from 2tec2 su­per dura­bil­ity, stain re­sis­tance and the look of a tra­di­tional wo­ven tex­tile. Use the tiles inside or out, and if one is dam­aged, it can eas­ily be re­placed. The striped pat­tern al­lows you to cre­ate a checker­board ef­fect or the seam­less look of wall-to-wall car­pet­ing. Out­door liv­ing re­quires spe­cial floor­ing. Tac­tTiles pro­vides the look of tiles while al­low­ing rain­wa­ter to drain through quickly, re­duc­ing pud­dles and slip­pery floors. Use the weath­er­proof tiles on decks, bal­conies, ter­races or pa­tios. They can also be laid di­rectly over pavers, con­crete and tar­mac. The tiles in­ter­lock to fit to­gether eas­ily and come in a va­ri­ety of de­signs and col­ors. Com­bine the ease of lam­i­nate floor­ing with gen­tle ra­di­ant heat with Quiet Warmth Film from Quiet Walk. The roll-out line volt­age un­der­lay­ment fea­tures grad­ual sup­ple­men­tal warmth in an ul­tra­thin and flex­i­ble prod­uct that’s per­fect for float­ing tile sys­tems.

Glass fibers coated with vinyl make the car­pet tiles man­u­fac­tured by 2tec2 ex­tra durable. If a tile be­comes dam­aged or stained, it can be quickly re­placed.
