Carpet already has many inherent advantages as a floor covering, such as dust particle reduction, easy maintenance, and improved acoustic properties of contract and office areas. The OBJECT CARPET’s products consist of recycled Econyl®-Garn, which is manufactured from industrial waste and fishing nets. With WELLTEX, the German brand takes a step forward, further increasing the eco-sustainability of the collections.
“Creating flooring that has no ecological footprint – that is our ultimate aim. After six years of intensive development work, we are delighted to present the new tile coating WELLTEX', says Frank Zimmermann, Object Carpet Export Manager.
Free of any harmful chemicals – the new WELLTEX carpet tile backing minimizes emissions and odor. WELLTEX is 30 percent lighter, extremely flexible and easy to install, simple to cut and work with. What is more, every layer of these carpet tiles – from the wear surface down to the woven backing and the way the threads and filaments are attached, including adhesives and insulating fleece – consists largely of low-emission recycled materials. That has enabled us to develop a product that is completely bitumen-free, latex-free and PVC-free. We are also minimizing our environmental footprint since the new product is so light to transport.
The standard version has a special polyester fleece backing, made of recycled materials, that is pleasing in texture, easy to install and lies perfectly flat. Even our standard version provides greatly improved acoustic values compared with existing types of SL tiles. For our high-performance acoustic version, we have also included an additional acoustic membrane. This means that the feel-good factor in all versions results not just from the innovative reverse backing but also from its acoustic properties.
All styles of OBJECT CARPET products also fulfil the requirements for use in LEED and DGNB certified buildings, helping to meet the internationally recognized standards for environmentally friendly, resource-efficient and sustainable construction. All our carpet floorings are certified as being made from low-allergen materials. WELLTEX produces no harmful emissions. This is guaranteed by the Blue Angel test certificate, that evaluates the entire life cycle of a product.
