Pancoast, Ferendino, Grafton and Skeels, Architects, Miami, FL.
The efficiency, cost and selection of carpet in schools were discussed in some detail, including flammability, maintenance, type and density of fiber, underpad, and methods of installation. The following conclusions were stated--(1) the use of carpet substantially improves the educational environment, and (2) the total cost of carpet, including maintenance, is no more than that of resilient floor finishes. The publication also states that the Dade County Board of Public Instruction will issue a detailed specification of acceptable carpet materials and contruction for the purpose of bidding, purchase and installation.
