The floor is an important interior design element which influences a room’s atmosphere and the impression it makes.
Its surface lends any room its inimitable character. Materials, finish, floor-laying method and colours create visual accents and fulfil a wide variety of requirements. Functionally, floors have to offer solutions for anti-static and acoustic requirements, and take into consideration heat transmission capacity, hygiene, maintenance, life cycle and changeability.
Carpets create a positive effect on a room’s ambience. They filter dust from the air and collect it. Thick flooring paired with a stable back provides insulation and creates energy savings of 5–10%. Carpets protect muscles and joints, and ensure that we feel comfortable while walking.
Carpets exert a major influence on the acoustics of a space. They dampen noise and avoid unpleasant echoing noise. The higher the pile, the better the effect. The sound of footfalls can be reduced by up to 90%.
