Chilewich Contract Collection is ready to launch BioFelt, what it calls a revolutionary new tile backing system for multi-purpose applications.

BioFelt is a PVC-free tile backing system composed of 82 percent pre- and post-consumer content. It can be installed with adhesives or with special connectors developed by VELCRO to connect each tile to one another and the floor. This allows for easy installation on raised access floors and other floors where adhesives would not be allowed, the company said.

Chilewich CEO Joe Sultan noted, “BioFelt is the most exciting tile backing system we’ve ever developed. The tile has a wonderful cushioned feel to it, it’s much lighter than vinyl, it’s tough and durable and can be installed with VELCRO – it’s a truly exciting development.”

Available from June, the new Chilewich Contract Collection will be showcased for the first time at NeoCon from June 11-13.
