University of Canterbury, James Hight Library

As one of the busiest buildings at the University of Canterbury campus, the James Hight Library required flooring that was both hardwearing and acoustically quiet without compromising aesthetics.  A renovation prompted by the September 2010 earthquake saw the use of Shaw Diffuse Magnetic Fields carpet tiles used extensively in the main library areas which have provided great design coupled with even better durability and all at a reasonable price.
