Creating a unique showroom to demonstrate its innovative and bespoke awnings and window blinds, James Robertshaw required floor coverings that would match the industrious, stripped back feel implemented across the rest of the showroom.
Simon Peers of Barratt & Hughes Flooring Specialists Ltd was called upon for this fit out that exuded modernity. The only definite specification was for a heavy duty carpet tile that could withstand heavy footfall, but would complement the urban theme running through the showroom.
Having achieved great results by using CFS’ Illusion carpet tiles, Barratt & Hughes Flooring Specialists knew the covering would not only meet the specification, but would complete the look the owner wanted to achieve.
Throughout the showroom and main display area of CFS Illusion in Night Time was installed, while CFS Lobby, in Anthracite, was selected for the entrance matting. CFS illusion is a hard wearing, loop pile carpet tile consisting of 10 plain colours and 8 complementary linear patterns. Entrance matting is a simple yet effective way to maintain carpet within a property, particularly in buildings that may experience a higher than average footfall, such as offices, retail outlets and hotels.
There are typically two types of entrance matting used in commercial settings: primary and secondary. Primary entrance matting is generally used externally, outside the main entrance of a building, to reduce the amount of dirt and moisture transferred into a building. This increases the effectiveness of secondary or internal matting, which is installed inside a building, usually in receptions, entrances or foyers.
Secondary entrance matting usually consists of two functional materials: an absorber yarn and a scraper yarn. As the name describes, the scraper yarn removes any debris from footwear, such as dirt or gravel, whilst the absorber yarn absorbs any liquid from the shoe that might be brought in from the outside, protecting any floor covering that may be installed further into the building.
The CFS ranges were installed challenge-free, thanks to their ease of fitting and expertise of Barratt & Hughes. James Robertshaw now enjoys not only an exemplary looking space from which to showcase its products, but knows its flooring of choice will remain in peak condition for years to come.
CFS Stockists, Carpet & Flooring also supplied screeds, adhesives and trims for the project. With the floor covering and associated accessories sourced from one supplier, the job was quick and simple to complete.
