A carpet is a textile floor covering consisting of an upper layer of "pile" attached to a backing. Carpet widths vary from 0.69m (27”) to 5.0m (16’ 5”) and can be seamed together where necessary. Carpet tiles are also available, typically 0.5m x 0.5m (20” x 20”) and are affixed using methods which hold them in place while allowing easy removal and refitting if required.
Walkways Flooring will only recommend carpets that are fit for purpose, improvements in fibre technology and construction techniques mean that the less expensive carpets wear well in the right location. Of course, some carpets are more hardwearing than others. The length of time a carpet will last is dependent upon a number of factors including pile fibre, weights of fibre, density of the pile, construction, maintenance and of course location. Walkways Flooring will advise you throughout to assist you on your choice.
