How to Leverage the Latest Digital Tools on ki.com
Many of us at KI, perhaps like you, are currently working from home, doing our part to socially distance ourselves during the COVID-19 pandemic. But rest assured, we are here for you. Thanks to technology, we can keep our community connected.
We’re constantly working to improve your experience on ki.com and provide the seamless, efficient experience you require to keep your projects moving.
In fact, we recently made quite a few updates to our website, designed to support all that you’ve come to love about the digital experience.
Following are the highlights of the Design Resources on ki.com that may be useful while working from home (and once you return to the office!).
- Browse KI and Pallas Textiles fabric offerings, including upholsteries, vertical panel fabrics and cubicle curtains.
- Search by source (Pallas Textiles or KI Ingrades), content type (woven, non-woven, leather) or price range/grades
- View fabric details, including color ranges, specifications/properties and on-product approval status (approved, disapproved, not tested)
- Browse finish options, including laminate, wood, paint, plastic, edge colors and styles, acrylic, glass, felt and more
- View color ranges and surface cleaning instructions for each material type
- View all approved fabrics and/or finishes for KI products
