Carpet and Flooring

Discover more about our hard and soft flooring, underlay and carpet tests

Quality, longevity and safety are important factors in determining the characteristics and attributes of flooring, carpet and carpet products for both consumers and commercial industries. Our lab offers an extensive range of flooring and carpet tests to determine and measure quality standards, efficiency, safety and regulatory compliance.

Density is one of the key indicators of carpet quality and can vary greatly. While wool is recognised around the world as being the ultimate fibre for top-quality carpets, it’s important to remember that not all wool is the same. This is where technical expertise and testing can help determine the most suitable and relevant product.
