What kind of carpet should I use?
Commercial carpet comes in a variety of colors and styles.

In addition the carpet installation can be temporary or permanent depending on your needs. We are here to help you choose a carpet that will work for your workplace.
When would I install a wool carpet in our facility?
If your institution is looking for an environmentally-responsible choice or requires a historical look, wool carpet is a must. Wool is extremely durable and naturally resistant to flames and smoke, even surpassing nylon based carpets, but its steep price makes it an unattractive choice for many.
Wool is a natural fiber and to obtain different colours a dye needs to be added, therefore if your carpet requires frequent washes, wool may not be the best choice for you as the colour may fade the carpet may warp or shrink due to the humidity.
We take pride in installing carpet of Canadian wool manufacturer to insure your satisfaction for the long life of your wool carpet.
What are the advantage of polypropylene carpet?
Polypropylene (PP) carpet is made of a plastic resin. The advantages of polypropylene carpet is that they are very durable with a lower cost. Resistant to ultraviolet (UV) rays and to high traffic polypropylene carpet are ideal for entrances. Other properties to this type of carpet is that the colour is incorporated in the synthetic fiber during its production. This result in a lasting colour. But this carpet does not come from a renewable source. Plastic resin comes from petroleum.

They give you flexibility also when specific areas require repairs. Designs and patterns can also be elaborated with carpet tiles to suit your work environment.
