INSTALL, Roppe partner at NeoCon 2018

Glassboro, N.J.— At NeoCon 2018, INSTALL and Roppe will emphasize the value of certified installation through live, daily flooring demonstrations. As the largest commercial interiors show in North America, NeoCon 2018 will be held at Chicago’s historic Merchandise Mart from June 11-13. The INSTALL and Roppe demonstrations will be located on the 7th floor at the Interiors + SourcesMaterials Pavilion # 7-1000.

This series of dynamic demonstrations will occur throughout the day June 11-12. Through INSTALL’s floor covering expertise, a fashion-forward design using Roppe rubber sheet and tile products will be brought to life. INSTALL and Roppe will showcase new and innovative installation techniques with Roppe’s newest products:

  • Envire Rubber Sheet & Tile: designed for a natural resilience, exceptional wear resistance and dimensional stability for high-traffic areas.
  • FlashCove Prefabricated Base: puncture-proof reinforced base for the longest life-cycle and easiest maintenance for sheet flooring installations.

INSTALL standards and expertise incorporate the knowledge and backing of the entire flooring industry, including Roppe. “INSTALL’s mission is to train and educate for the purpose of quality flooring installations,” said John McGrath, INSTALL executive director. “This collaboration allows us to highlight the need for both quality products and installation to ensure successful commercial flooring projects.”

Designers take great care to choose the right products and systems for clients. However, no matter how discerning the specifier and regardless of product selection, if the design is installed incorrectly, the customer will suffer. The product will not perform the way the designer intends and dismantling and replacing the installation is expensive, time consuming and can tarnish the image of everyone involved.

“Working alongside INSTALL to provide a quality flooring experience from start to finish has proven to be invaluable,” explained Brent Fike, RHC general manager of technical and installation. “INSTALL continues to be an important resource for us as we strive to partner with educated, skilled installers to deliver outstanding end results.”
