A Wonderful
Climate

Many (usually subjective) factors determine whether we feel comfortable in a room. Yet one is crucial for us all: the quality of the indoor climate. Our textile floor covering makes a positive contribution to this.

Carpets improve users’ level of comfort. In a number of ways. Above all, due to their binding property. For example, humidity, allergens, fine dust and other particles. And to be honest: Who wants to work or live in environments with poor and polluted air?

It is only advantageous that our textile floor coverings are efficient dust magnets. So that they vastly improve the indoor climate and comfort level. For a heightened sense of freshness and health in our daily lives.

Less Pollution Means Greater Freedom

Textile floor covering traps dust and fluff exceptionally well — until they are removed by the next vacuum.

And that is extremely practical. What’s even more practical in our eyes is that it filters the air at the same time. And it also improves the indoor climatic condition.

To keep things this way, we optimize our textile floor coverings in a creative, innovative, and sustainable manner. In order to generate added value. It may not always be visible, but it’s always tangible.

Clean Air

Air quality is a fundamental factor for well-being. After all, the better it is, the less impurities are present.

Clean air is therefore good—especially in interior spaces. Above all because we spend nearly 90 percent of our lives inside. That’s a lot of indoor air we breathe in. All the more important then for it to be as odorless, oxygen-rich, and pollutant-low as possible. It sounds simple, and it is too. With carpet.

Every step and every movement on hard surfaces kicks up dust. Then add to that the fine dust that exists in offices due to printers and photocopiers. It’s constantly swirled around in the air because smooth surfaces offer no grip. Breathing this in over time can be detrimental to your health. What can help here? Textile floor covering. As a true dust magnet, it absorbs even the finest particles and retains them in its fibers.

The effectiveness can even be measured: In Germany, 50 µg per m³ is the limit for maximum fine dust pollution in the (outside) air. At 62.9 µg per m³ on average, smooth floor coverings such as parquet, PVC, linoleum, LVT, or marble clearly exceed this value. If rooms are furnished with carpet, however, the accumulation of dust is minimized. In this case, the level of dust in the air is limited to just 30.4 µg per m³. That isn’t only well below the specified maximum air pollution limit. In rooms with hard flooring, it is also cut by more than half. Up to 50 percent better indoor air quality is thus achieved. Not a bad intervention.

Indoor Comfort for Everyone

Fine dust, fluff, pollen, particles, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) easily rise into the air.

That’s totally fine in outdoor areas. However, if they are too highly concentrated in indoor spaces, they can lead to allergies–and may have impacts on health, such as a runny nose, headaches, fatigue, asthma as well as other respiratory diseases. Our carpet puts things right—thanks to its dust-binding properties and low-pollution materials.

That’s why our textile floor covering makes the ideal solution for asthmatics and allergy sufferers: Because it does not contain any substances that are harmful to health. And it effectively removes—and captures—pollutants, allergens, and (animal) hair and fluff from the air at the same time. Irritants therefore don’t stand a chance. To make sure that it stays that way for good, the carpet must also be cleaned on a regular basis. Doing this is quick and, in comparison to cleaning hard floor coverings, anything but complicated. The result, on the other hand, is most impressive: a room free of dust and particulate matter that doesn’t put any strain on the respiratory system. Replaced by a feel-good atmosphere with clean air to breathe.

Beneficial on Multiple Levels

Temperature, humidity, noises—they all factor into the indoor climate. After all, rooms which are too cold, damp, dry, or loud are neither comfortable nor welcoming. With a textile floor covering that is never going to happen: It creates a pleasant environment because it functions as an insulator and attenuates noise. The temperature in the room seems higher, and noise is quieter. And since it is also hygroscopic, the carpet regulates the humidity. It absorbs moisture when the humidity is too high and emits it when it is too dry, creating a relaxing interior atmosphere. Providing the best condition to be active, creative, and productive.
