EXCEPTIONAL SUSTAINABLE CARPET EXCLUSIVE TO GRADUS

14 January 2008

Floorcoverings specialist Gradus has signed an exclusive UK deal to distribute Adventurer; an exceptionally hardwearing carpet with strong sustainability credentials, lengthy performance warranties and attractive aesthetics.

Formerly sold in the UK as Explorer by US company Tandus and now manufactured in the UK under their licence, Adventurer is available as tile or broadloom with a range of backing options, including impervious, bitumen, PVC or a unique 100% recycled ER3 backing.

Both the PVC and ER3 backed carpets can be fully recycled and the recyclate is then used to manufacture the ER3 backing, further reducing the impact on landfill.

Ideal for healthcare and education environments, Adventurer’s unique yarn structure and system provides a performance guarantee of 20 years. The warranty can be extended to 25 years if the ER3 backing is specified, thanks to its special bonding system, which prolongs the carpet’s lifespan.

Adventurer is manufactured using a 5/64th loop pile tufting machine and is available in 12 natural colourways, including Sandstorm, Lunar Grey and Oregon Forest, which are an attractive and popular choice for commercial and public environments.

Says Pamela Cairns, Marketing Manager for Gradus Floorcoverings: “Adventurer is a proven product and has an excellent reputation within the marketplace so we are delighted to be supplying the range on an exclusive basis in the UK.

“Public sector specifiers working on schools and healthcare projects are increasingly concerned with environmental credentials and Adventurer certainly ticks the box when it comes to sustainability and recycling.”

Gradus offers a comprehensive range of floorcoverings, including cork flooring, barrier matting, random lay carpet tiles, loose lay vinyl and printed, polypropylene and nylon carpets.
