CARPET

WARM & COMFORTABLE

The physical properties of carpet make it an effective insulator, helping to ease the cost of home heating or air conditioning by increasing the R-value of the carpeted space. Carpet is a soft surface under the foot for young and old, and can help reduce leg and back fatigue, prevent slips, cushion falls, and reduce the risk of falling objects breaking.

BEAUTY & STYLE

Carpet is available in endless colours, styles, textures, and patterns, from classic cut piles with elegant patterns, to casual loops and fun friezes, to contemporary prints and geometric texture subtleties that create understated designs. Carpet is an important decor element that adds dimensional texture, pattern, and colour to any space in the home.

QUIET

Carpet is the perfect sound insulator and helps absorb the noises that come with everyday life – televisions, stereos, computers, children playing, etc. Carpet also works as a sound barrier between floors by helping block sound transmission to rooms below.

STYLES - FIBERS

The type of fibre used and the way the carpet is constructed will determine how well the carpet will stand up to spills, pets and daily traffic. There are four basic types of carpet pile fibres:

Nylon

The most popular carpet fibre because of its exceptional durability, wear-resistance and resiliency. It is very receptive to dying for colour versatility and uniformity, and can be remarkably soft. Most nylon carpets are usually treated to enhance stain resistance.

Polyester

Luxurious and soft to the touch, polyester carpets have excellent colour clarity and retention, and are also naturally stain and fade resistant.

Olefin (Polypropylene)

Olefin carpets are water resistant and static electricity resistant. In the solution-dying process, the colour is actually blended right into the fibre in liquid form, thereby ensuring it will not fade, even when exposed to intense sunlight, bleaches, or other harsh chemicals or elements. Olefin is not as durable as other nylon and polyester fibres and should be used in low-traffic areas.

Wool

Wool is a natural fibre with excellent wear and resiliency and moderate stain and soil resistance. It is soft to the touch and has a luxurious appearance. Wool carpets are considerably more expensive than most synthetic carpets and should be used in low-traffic areas.
