In open-office environments, with teams of people all talking at once, noise can be disturbing and frustrating. In such environments, the acoustic advantages of Milliken cushion backing are impressive.

A BIM object is a combination of many things: It is detailed information that defines the product and geometry that represents the product’s physical characteristics. The visualisation data that gives the object a recognizable appearance and behavioural data, such as detection zones, enables the object to be positioned or to behave in exactly the same way as the product itself. There are two primary types of object: component and layered. The component objects are building products that have fixed geometrical shapes such as windows, doors, boilers etc. Layered objects are building products that do not have a fixed shape or size such as carpets, roofing, walls and ceilings.
LRV is a measurement that indicates how much light a surface reflects and how much it absorbs.
Values are measured on a 0 – 100 scale, where 0 = perfectly absorbing black, 100 = perfectly reflecting brilliant white. Understanding Light Reflectance values of surfaces enable interior lighting levels to be optimised and colours to be contrasted. Milliken provides these values for all products in accordance with BS8300.
Simply use the L value for determining lighting levels * or the LRV (Y) value to compare the carpet colour to edgings and other surface finishes, in order to achieve the recommended 30 point difference in colour contrast required for inclusive design.
(*L value can additionally be converted to a decimal for lux rating e.g. L 24 = Lux rating 0.24)
