Comfort underfoot. (The Buzz).

A recent survey titled "Facility Managers Research Report on Carpet Cushion" reported that 58 percent of respondents are using carpet cushion in their facilities. Conducted by the Houston-based International Facility Managers Association (IFMA) for the Alliance for Flexible Polyurethane Foam (AFPF), the study also asked where users were most likely to install cushion; 87 percent of carpet cushion users cited the likelihood of installing carpet cushion in public spaces, such as lobbies, and prestigious settings such as executive suites and conference rooms. Findings revealed that part of the reason for cushion's popularity is due to its ability to help carpet retain its beauty, absorb noise in any environment, extend carpet life, and increase workplace comfort.
