Kinetex FAQs

How is Kinetex installed?

  • Installing Kinetex is as easy to install as traditional modular carpet,
    however special attention should be applied until installers gain
    experience with module placement. Installers should perform site and
    material conditioning, surface preparation, concrete pH and moisture
    testing as if the were installing carpet modules. Because it is such a
    light-weight material, the modules cut very easily, reducing
    installation time.

Kinetex Installation Instructions


How is Kinetex maintained?

  • Kinetex is cleaned using the same vacuum cleaners and hot water
    extraction equipment used to clean carpet. The schedules and cleaning
    supplies for preventative, daily, interim and restorative maintenance
    are similar to that of carpet. Kinetex dries 75% faster than carpet,
    rendering it suitable for cleaning while occupied. Please consult the
    Kinetex maintenance instructions for complete maintenance.

pH will vary, depending on the optional use of Commercialon Premium Sealer.

moisture testing and ASTM F 710 pH testing is required. PreFix installations
