Orlando -- Fuse Commercial Flooring Alliance members gathered here for their annual conference where Mike Hutton, Fuse senior vice president, announced the launch of Fuse Technical, a go-to network for the design community for technical flooring installation advice.

According to a recent survey of interior design professionals, the top three problems that designers experience with flooring installations are improper installation, poor maintenance, and moisture-related product failures. In fact, these three issues account for 74 percent of their flooring installation problems. Additionally, interior design professionals are looking for more trained installers and more help with moisture and installation issues, Hutton said.

“We created Fuse Technical to help interior designers effectively solve flooring installation issues with the right technical information so that projects stay on track and on budget,” said Hutton.

Offered exclusively through Fuse Alliance, Fuse Technical brings flooring installation expertise specifically for commercial interior designers. Because Fuse Alliance is a network of impartial flooring installation professionals, the Fuse Technical program is designed to close this technical knowledge gap between flooring contractors and interior designers and offer members as their Go-to flooring experts for solutions to these problems.

The alliance plans to leverage relationships with the International Interior Design Association and develop additional continuing education units that help to position Fuse Tech as a go-to problem solver for flooring issues.
