The pile material of Vorwerk carpeting is made of polyamide (PA), which is used either as PA 6 or PA 6.6. Polyamide is the most widely used synthetic fibre on the carpet market. Well-known brand names of these fibres are Nylon or Perlon. The carrier material onto which the pile material is tufted is either polypropylene or polyester fabric, or else spunbond web (PET/PES or PP). The backing of Vorwerk carpets is made of the synthetic fibres polypropylene and polyester (PET/PES or PP). Some of the PET components are recycled fibres from bottle flakes (PET drinks bottles).
First of all, you have to prepare the substrate of the area where you will be laying the tiles. Then you have to determine the room and area axes. After that, you apply an adhesive to the area and lay the tiles along the defined room axes, starting from the middle. It is important to place the rows of tiles close together and to observe the direction of laying if this has been specified. You will also find further information on this topic in our laying recommendations.
Carpet tiles are similar to bathroom tiles, and like ceramic tiles are laid beside each other. This means that individual tiles can be lifted later on, which is especially useful if any tiles are dirty (individual tiles can be replaced) and, for instance, when relocating an office (change cable routes).
Textile floor coverings noticeably increase the living comfort, quality of life, improve the acoustics, and are proven to be good for the body. The many advantages that carpeting offers make it a veritable multi-talent for almost any living area.
With floor coverings for living areas, it is particularly important that no harmful substances are released either during the production process or once they are in use. All Vorwerk carpets are tested by the Textiles & Flooring Institute GmbH (TFI) and given the renowned GuT signet. This means that all Vorwerk carpets are “green” – regardless of their colour in real life.
Yes, because they are specially constructed from several layers, so Vorwerk carpets are particularly springy, which is kind to the joints. Even if you are standing for a long time, the soft fibre layer ensures that your body weight is distributed optimally over the area of your feet, which is much kinder on the joints.
Rooms with modern interiors tend to have lots of sound-reflecting surfaces, and these have a negative impact on the room acoustics. Textile floor coverings are an effective solution for this problem because they absorb sound.
