Carpet Yarn

Carpet fibre determines the quality of a carpet. The fibre influences many aspects such as surface structure, colour and feel as well as the functional benefits including resilience to wear, colour fastness and soil and stain resistance.

danfloor use a variety of yarns including branded yarns and yarns which they have manufactured themselves.

prism™ yarn has a unique cross section engineered to deliver purity in colour and is combined with light refraction properties which helps to defuse visual soiling.

STAIN AND SOIL RESISTANCE

The cross section results in a rigid fibre which blocks soiling particles from sticking to the surface of the carpet therefore reducing soil adherence and assisting with the removal of dirt.

INHERENTLY ANTI-STATIC FIBRE

The prism™ fibre naturally prevents electrical charges that can sometimes be produced when in contact with such textiles.

SOLUTION DYED YARN

prism™ yarn is solution dyed which means the colouring is added to the fibre when it is formed producing a carpet with outstanding texture and colour. Furthermore it results in a carpet that can withstand commercial cleaning agents, including those with bleaching elements, without the loss of colour or appearance.

The ECONYL® nylon yarn used to create a number of our ranges, including ECONOMIX and The EVOLUTION Collection, is an important factor contributing to the integrity and resilience of the carpets and goes a long way in determining their overall performance.

Made with regenerated nylon fibres, including pre and post-industrial and consumer waste, makes the ECONYL® yarn 100% regenerated and infinitely regenerable.

IN ADDITION TO EXCELLENT ENVIRONMENTAL CREDENTIALS ECONOMIX AND THE EVOLUTION COLLECTION ARE ALSO ABLE TO OFFER A NUMBER OF OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE BENEFITS:

– Class 33 heavy-commercial use certification
– 10-15 year wear warranty
– Colour fast solution dyed fibres
– On trend colour palette
– Soil and stain resistant fibres
– Spill safe impervious membrane
– mædical™ i-Link™ anti-microbial treatment (Economix only)

Fibre influences many aspects of a carpets appearance and performance. The Antron fibre has been tried and trusted for over 40 years and offers a great deal of flooring possibilities in the commercial interiors sector.

Fusion is manufactured with Antron’s polyamide 6.6 nylon yarn, which has a significant number of hydrogen bonds and an optimum molecular chain alignment, meaning its performance and appearance retention far exceeds those carpets made with a polyamide 6 yarn.

Carpets made from Antron® nylon offer outstanding qualities for the contract sector with medium to heavy traffic use. The carpets are available in a wide range of fibre sizes, lustres and dye abilities, offering excellent design flexibility.

The Aquafil Alto Chroma filament cross section produces a fibre that is not only crush resistant but one that has superior yarn elasticity. This ultimately minimises carpet pile compression and deformation, limits light reflection and guarantees appearance retention.

The yarn filament is prevented from breaking due to the superior fibre tenacity and abrasion resistance properties of the Alto Chroma fibre which ultimately provides excellent carpet durability.

The use of Alto Chroma yarn is recommended in carpeted areas used near or around food and drink, such as in the healthcare and hospitality sectors. The formation of the yarn makes carpet cleaning and disinfection possible with solutions containing bleach, with no risk of polymer or colour degradation

COLOUR FASTNESS

Alto Chromo colours have been created from special non-photosensitive, non-soluble pigments and therefore guarantee light and colour fastness even when subject to intense cleaning with products that contain bleach.

Wool is strong, static resistant and pleasing to touch. The 80/20 wool mix fibre used to manufacture our wool ranges has a number of benefits that make it ideal for use in busy commercial environments including:

STRONG AND RESILIENT

Wool carpet provides superior performance, unique resilience and long lasting durability.

EASY CARE

Wool has an inbuilt resistance to soiling due to it’s natural oils and outer surface of microscopic scales.

SOFT AND WARM

Wool carpets act as an insulator improving heat retention and energy efficiency. They also absorb sound and reduce sound reverberation.

FIRE RETARDANT

Wool is naturally fire retardant and has a slow ignition rate. It also has self extinguishing properties making it ideal for contract locations.

ANTI ALLERGY

The minute scales on the fibre’s surface will hold airborne particles until vacuumed which helps to improve indoor air quality.

NATURAL AND SUSTAINABLE

Wool is 100% natural, fully sustainable and biodegradable.
