Mohawk are pleased to announce the launch of our new environmental tombola, featuring carpet manufactured from 100% recycled material STRONG From bottle to floor - how we do it: A plastic bottle today could one day be fibres in Mohawk's carpet. It may sound LUXURIOUS far-fetched, when in reality it's one of our most amazing stories. Polyethylene terephthalate (P.E.T.) is a top quality resin required in the DURABLE production of plastic drinks bottles. When recycled, it can be extruded into fibres that are far superior to lower- grade synthetic fibres used in making other brands of carpet yarns. RESILIENT Mohawk recycles more than 2 billion plastic bottles each year. By controlling every aspect of the recycling process we guarantee the highest standards of VIBRANT performance in our beautiful, luxurious carpet.

The range includes, Standard, Contract, Super 50 and Super 65 with all four twists available in any width up to seven metres The Van Gogh inspired colours have influenced this new Ryatwist collection which displays a selection of 120 colours including vibrant shades such as chocolate, grey and red.These colours reflect customers’ demand for carpet shades far from traditional beiges. Plus, if a customer can’t find their preferred colour choice they can always make use of Ryalux's any colour match option. To re-launch the Ryatwist collection, Ryalux have updated their traditional red pattern books which clearly identify the benefits of being able to supply carpet in any width up to seven metres wide and the colour matching service. In support of their extra -wide service, Ryalux has strengthened its dedicated delivery fleet and also offers retailers the option to have extra- wide carpets delivered directly to the customer on their behalf. Tough choices with style For consumers, the essential elements of a flooring solution involve the product being functional and stylish. With its truly attractive surface that provides innovative practical features such as antimicrobial protection and built-in stain resistance, retailers can be full of conviction when promoting Heuga’s New Nature flooring; safe in the knowledge of its superior serviceable benefits, along with a strong sense of style. The secret to its hardwearing construction lies in New Nature’s structured loop pile, which presents a resilient, natural surface that effortlessly copes with the vigour of modern life, without compromising on style. Perfect for nearly every room in the house with its contemporary look, New Nature features Intersept, Heuga’s renowned antimicrobial treatment, which is incorporated in the carpet tiles for the lifetime of the flooring, as well as its specially developed Protekt stain protection. The truly exceptional advantage of New Nature is its price point, which aims to attract consumers looking for an affordable yet modern looking floor covering with a natural appearance and feel. It is also backed by a seven- year 'no quibble' guarantee thus providing ‘priceless’ peace of mind.

But there is one can that is not so humble and outstrips its competitors, Floorwise’s F599 Spray Adhesive. As any good chemist will tell you, the difference is in the composition. And the F599 composition gives F599 a higher adhesives content than spray adhesives from leading manufacturers and the results of this are two fold. With a higher adhesives content, F599 has less solvent to evaporate and so dries in less than half the time of other products. In the summer months, F599 takes just 30 seconds to develop tack allowing far quicker installation. And in the winter comparable performance is even better, with F599 taking just one- minute to dry while other spray adhesives can take five or more to achieve the same state. More adhesive in the can, means more adhesive and so F599 goes down thicker than the competition creating a higher coat weight on the subfloor.The result is that F599 creates a stronger bond, giving more peace of mind and allowing installers to work without worry. Floorwise hasn’t just thought about what is in the can, it has also thought about how it comes out. Cans of F599 are equipped with the latest in nozzle technology, allowing both the flow and direction of adhesive to be controlled by the installer.This helps to reduce the chance of overspray onto walls and skirtings making for a cleaner and quicker job. With a coverage rate of 3m2 from a 500ml can on a single, smooth and non- porous surface, F599 is perfect for small rooms and those little finishing jobs and with no CFC propellants it will not damage the ozone layer. F599 Spray Adhesive can be used to adhere foam-backed and polyurethane-backed carpets, carpet tiles, cork, paper felt, underlays and felts to wood, concrete, stone, terrazzo and quarry tile floors. from The Stocklists April 2008 49 News Ulster’s Hard Days Night One of Ulster Carpets’ most recent projects is set to become part of a worldwide phenomena.

The finish of the British Wool/Farm Stay UK prize draw at the end of February – winners to be announced in next month’s issue - provided real food for thought for the BWMB marketing team. “We had produced a very nice promotional pack for the Autumn retailer promotion,” said Irfan Khan, promotions manager for the BWMB. “The desktop leaflet dispenser is already in the hands of over 200 retailers and we wanted to give it a future use. So we discussed ideas with a few people in the trade and found out what they liked and wanted in terms of British Wool literature.” The general consensus was that people like to know a little more about the wool and also to know about the chain of activity from field to floor. Sheep images also seemed to be popular – with some retailers commenting that British breeds and origin were increasingly attractive to consumers. “At British Wool we have a wealth of material about sheep, sheep farmers, the textile industry and carpet but nothing captured the right balance of wool/sheep/carpet information that they were asking for. So we have created our new info-brochure especially for the retailer, which is going to be a great promotional tool,” said Mr Khan. The leaflet will initially be sent to all retailers that participated in the Autumn promotion but if this proves successful, may be rolled out to other retailers later in the year. “We have had some superb support from the retail network and it is brilliant when they participate in our promotions. The intention is to keep building this relationship with Spring and Autumn promotions with either a point of sale or incentive based campaign. “ Retailers who wish to be involved in future British Wool promotions should contact the The latest info-brochure by British Wool is designed marketing team on 0800 0288 673 and leave their name, address and contact number. specifically for the retailer Cormar Carpets launch Berwick in British Wool Cormar Carpets have introduced a superb new range in British Wool in time for Spring.
