We're really pleased to be announcing the launch of our Hi Tech Evolution heavy contract carpet tile range. This product has plenty of virtues, but we're choosing to enhance its appeal even more by making a unique offer - please read on.
This innovative product represents the evolution of our best selling Hi Tech product and will be run alongside it, as its design-focused stable mate. There will be clear options to use the two ranges in tandem, but we think Evolution will be a clear winner, in its own right, when used on its own!
The product specification is a proven one; the pile is constructed from 100% solution dyed nylon with a 500 gm/m2 pile weight; the tiles are 500x500mm bitumen backed, with an overall weight of 4400 gm/m2 - and it's manufactured in the UK.
The big news is that the Hi Tech range has achieved an A+ BREEAM rating (check out the 'Green Guide' listing for confirmation).
The really big news is that these carpet tiles are designed to be random-lay - so install them in accordance with BS5325:1996, but don't worry about the direction of lay; just take them out of the box, and away you go, creating your own random design as you install.
The really, really big news is that for every square metre of Hi Tech Evolution sold, we're aiming to divert a square metre of waste carpet tiles from landfill. By utilising our own 'Benefit Recycling Plus' option, and working with a number of co-operating distributors and waste converters, we're hoping to make a real difference to the amount of waste carpet tile finding its way into landfill. We think it's the first waste carpet tile, take-back scheme of its type, and what's more, it's free of charge to the purchaser.
There are some basic qualifying criteria, but they're by no means onerous, and we think that this product provides a real opportunity for flooring professionals, specifiers and end-users to use a product with real added value.
We also like to take this opportunity to thank Carpet Recycling UK for their valuable input into this concepts development process.
