    Twist Carpets

    twist2Twist carpets are made with a fibre that is twisted as it comes from the backing and sheared at the tip. The twisting causes the pile to lie in different directions, giving a more textured appearance, and reduces shading and footprint. Generally the more twists in the fibre, the better wear you will get. The feel of the carpet will also vary depending on the amount of twists in the fibre strands.

    Attributes: Comfortable and soft, hardwearing, textured appearance. Suitable for busy lifestyles and households with pets.

    Loop Carpets

    loop2Loop carpet is where the carpet strand comes from the backing, forms a loop and returns to the backing. Loop carpets don’t tend to show footprints or shading as found in other carpet styles
    Attributes: Durable, easy to maintain, suitable for all lifestyles.

    Plush Carpets

    plush2Plush carpets are where the strands come straight up from the back and are then cut at the tips. Plush carpets have a high density pile that gives a luxurious feel underfoot for comfort. Plush carpets have a tendency to display temporary shading from footprints and vacuuming
    Attributes: Luxurious look and feel, suitable for your personal space

    Multi-Level Carpets – Level Cut Loop or Textured Cut Loop

    levelcutloop2texuredcutloop2Multi-Level carpets allow for design textures to be created within a carpet. They are made from a mix of some loops and some cut fibres often of varying heights to give it a textured or patterned style.

    Attributes: Durable, easy to maintain, perfect for busy lifestyles
     

    Choosing Your Fibre Type

    WOOL

    Wool carpet is naturally flame retardant, environmentally friendly and is a sustainable fibre.

    The natural fibre acts as a great insulator not only helping to reduce noise but also keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer.

    Because of the characteristics of the fibre and the lanolin content in wool, it has a natural ability to resist general soiling, releases dirt easily and responds well to professional cleaning.

    It offers superb resilience to wear because of the inherent quality of the fibre to ‘bounce back’ and recover following the pressure of foot traffic or furniture placement.

    Wool is not only a great choice for living areas where appearance is important but also perfect if you’re looking to carpet the heavier duty areas of the home such as the hall, stairs or landing.

    Wool carpet is generally more expensive than other fibres.

    SOLUTION DYED NYLON

    Solution Dyed Nylon Carpets, have proven they can provide a product with pleasing appearance, stain resistance and strong durability.

    The colour dye is added to the liquid fibre solution BEFORE the fibres are extruded in Solution Dyed Nylon.  This allows the color to be mixed into the solution thoroughly, bringing the color all the way through the fibre once it is extruded.  In this instance, picture a carrot:  unlike a radish, which has color only on the outside, a solution-dyed fibre has color all the way through the fibre. This makes Solution Dyed carpets colorfast and more resistant to fading than other fibres.

    Solution Dyed Nylon Carpets are a very popular choice as they hold the middle ground between Wool and Nylon alternatives.

    POLYESTER/NYLON

    Nylon and Polyester carpets are coloured differently than Solution Dyed Nylon in that the fibres are dipped in a vat of dye after they are extruded.  This method is great for achieving bright colors.  In this method, the dye penetrates just the outer surface of the fibre.  Think of a radish:  the interior is white, but the exterior is red. Nylon and Polyester carpets are generally less expensive than Solution Dyed Nylon.

    POLYPROPELENE

    Polypropylene is a synthetic fibre, popular because it's inexpensive, water resistant and durable.

    It costs less per square metre than other fibres and is ideal for rental properties, children’s bedrooms and playrooms as it is easy to clean and highly stain resistant.

    Polypropylene is not as strong as other fibres and so is normally used in loop pile construction in which there is less need for resiliency.

    Polypropylene, like Nylon and Polyester fibres are dipped in dye to achieve their colour, with the dye penetrating just the outer surface of the fibre.

    A good value for money carpet.

    carpet5Carpet Tiles

    If you are looking for the most versatile flooring product then Carpet Tiles will give you the opportunity to create an all over stylish look with the advantage of removing and replacing individual squares if staining or damage occurs.

    In an abundance of colours, styles and qualities, the majority of Carpet Tiles come in a standard size of 50cm x 50cm and are adhered to the subfloor with pressure sensitive adhesive to allow for easy removal.

    Carpet Tiles are great for Commercial applications where logistics play a part in large areas of space especially where site access for heavy broadloom carpet makes the process of installation difficult. The package size of 5sqm cartons make Carpet Tiles a perfect solution for offices, multi story buildings and Commercial Sites.

    Although Carpet Tiles are available in wool, most carpet tiles are now manufactured using nylon fibre due to its durability, its stain resistant surface and its ease of maintenance qualities.
