We offer a wide selection of backing solutions specially developed to meet the demanding business market clientele’s requirements for industry standards, comfort, acoustics, durability and minimal environmental impact.
All latex backing consists of water-based, synthetic SBR latex (styrene-butadiene rubber). The backing contains no softening agents or solvents. The latex is protected with antioxidants to ensure that its properties last for a long time, and it is very resistant to degradation during use.
CL backing is a dense latex backing suitable for high traffic areas. The backing ensures excellent walking comfort, great sound absorption and better ergonomics. In addition, CL backing is suitable for wheeled office chairs and in areas with heavy traffic. The backing has an integrated underlay so no additional underlay is required. This means that the carpet can be applied directly to the subfloor.
LL backing is a latex backing suitable for hotel rooms. The very soft backing ensures luxurious walking comfort, high sound absorption and better ergonomics. Compared to CL backing, LL backing is less dense. The backing’s integrated underlay ensures that the carpet can be applied directly to the subfloor, which saves an installation process and the cost of a separate underlay.
WT backing is especially suitable when there are heavy demands regarding the carpet’s resistance to loads such as intense traffic and wheeled office chairs. The backing is thus perfect for conference rooms, offices, hotels, restaurants, bars and institutions. WT backing is woven from 100% polypropylene and ensures great walking, increased sound absorption and better ergonomics. WT backing can be installed directly onto the subfloor, and for even greater comfort, it can be installed on an extra carpet underlay – either installed or mounted on grippers. Mounting on grippers provides a cushioning effect when walking on the carpet. Also creates increased step sound absorption, strength and elasticity.
IP backing has the same product properties such as WT backing, and there is also a unique, impenetrable backing layer that prevents fluid from trickling down to the subfloor. This helps prevent expensive floor damage to, for example, nursing homes, hospitals and fitness centres, for which IP backing is especially suitable as the backing, in addition to being waterproof, is also incredibly durable, sound-absorbing and comfortable. IP is produced in 100% polypropylene.
Sound-absorbing properties are the basis for good indoor environments. A carpeted floor benefits the acoustic environment as it functions as an acoustic aid to increase step and sound absorption. AB backing also ensures extra walking comfort and eliminates the need for a separate underlay, which saves both time and money. The backing consists of a specially developed felt material of polyester, and carpets with AB backing are suitable for most social spaces such as lobbies, corridors, hotel rooms and conference rooms. The backing is PVC-free.
The ECC backing is specially developed for our flat-woven wall-to-wall carpets. The backing is made from a 100% PVC-free textile material with excellent comfort and sound-absorbing properties. The special felt backing renders flat-woven carpets with an ECC backing ideal for areas such as offices, corridors, hotels, restaurants, retail and institutions.
Ecotrust 350 is the standard felt backing for our carpet tiles. Ecotrust 350 backing is made from 100% recycled textile materials without PVC and bitumen and ensures great comfort and sound absorption. Ecotrust 350 is suitable for high traffic areas.
As an alternative felt backing, we can deliver our carpet tiles with Ecotrust 750. Due to its higher weight, Ecotrust 750 is more comfortable under the feet and has even better sound-absorbing properties. Ecotrust 750 is made from 100% recycled textile materials without PVC and bitumen and is suitable for high traffic areas.
Ecotrust is the term used for our modular collections, i.e. carpet tiles. Many collections are developed as tile collections but are also available in wall-to-wall variants. In the same way, some collections are created as wall-to-wall products but are also available as carpet tiles.
The Ecotrust concept also reflects the design of our unique and patented tile backing, which is made from recycled water bottles. An innovative manufacturing technique transforms the bottles into a soft but strong PET-felt material, which is durable and has excellent acoustic properties. Ecotrust backing is Cradle to Cradle certified.
Our carpet tiles are available in 48 x 48 cm and 96 x 96 cm sizes as well as the innovative Figura concept with carpet tiles in various geometric shapes.
