Tarkett has debuted SineEffect, a modular soft surface flooring product designed by Jhane Barnes and created for Tandus Centiva.
SineEffect takes its name from the mathematical sine function that was discovered by analyzing circles. Not only is there a connection between sinusoids, curves having the form of a sine wave, and circles, but the sine function also describes the motion of things that sway, like a clock pendulum. The sinuous, smooth, back and forth flow of sine curves are also found in nature, like wind waves, sound waves and light waves. That may be why people who are not mathematicians and don’t understand the circular functions respond to sine effects. Sine effects resonate because the person perceives that what they are seeing is connected to the familiar and everyday life.
Made in America, SineEffect is a solution to adverse flooring. ethos with Omnicoat Technology can be installed over a variety of substrate issues, such as green concrete and old adhesives. When ethos with Omnicoat Technology is installed with TarkettTAPE, there is no need for pH or MVER testing, as long as no moisture staining or free-standing liquid are present. Powerbond hybrid resilient sheet floorcovering has a closed-cell cushion that provides an impermeable moisture barrier.
