Healthy Living with Silver and Zinc Release
was created for households on-the-go! It's durable, child and pet
friendly and easy to clean. Best of all, it resists mould and mildew to
help households be cleaner and fresher.
While carpet does
not create the growth of mould and mildew, foreign particles on any
moist surface can promote its occurrence and growth. Silver Release
helps Healthy Living carpets stay naturally fresh and inhibits the growth of bacteria, mould and mildew using silver and zinc ions.
The Healthy Living
Collection offers the most appealing and desirable colours and textural variations for fashion-conscious style families.
This range has
been designed with you in mind, offering performance benefits to support
your busy and active lifestyle. Whilst Silver Release technology is
already in use in other consumer products, Healthy Living is the first carpet with this technology.
Benefits of Silver and Zinc Release
carpets are the only floor coverings in the world to contain Silver
Release anti-bacterial protection that inhibits the growth of bacteria,
mould and mildew.
Bacteria grows by
dividing itself and multiplying. Silver and Zinc which are naturally
occurring elements found in nature, stops bacteria from dividing and as a
result does not allow the bacteria to grow.
How does it work?
The key to the
effectiveness of Silver Release is a unique, balanced combination of
Silver and Zinc ions which are built into the carpet. Based on testing,
this process takes place continuously for the life of your carpet,
won't wear or wash off and is proven safe for people and pets.
The billions and
billions of fibre strands that make up a carpeted room are the perfect
host for Silver Release which works 365 days a year, against the
formation of bacteria, mould and mildew, resulting in long lasting
anti-microbial protection. Health Living is the carpet of choice for those who put a premium on providing the cleanest, freshest feeling.
You can now roll around on your carpet knowing that it's as healthy, clean and fresh as it can be.
Chromolon - A carpet fibre that has all the answers
polyester yarn engineering has brought us to the pinnacle of carpet
yarns and qualities. Today's busy lifestyle demands a simple worry-free
easy-to-clean home environment; flooring made with Chromolon (the advanced polyester carpet fibre) brings all that plus a great looking luxurious floor to your home.
fibre is engineered with inherent stain resistance. Carpets made with Chromolon
are constructed for easy cleaning without compromise on touch and
durability. This new fibre technology will not fuzz or pill, most
spills can be quickly cleaned by blotting with warm water and will hold
that great colour and appearance.
The newly developed continuous extrusion process of Chromolon
creates the ultimate carpet fibre, dramatically increasing the
durability and functionality of the carpet. Stain resistance is
engineered into each individual fibre, although the carpet is piece
dyed, Chromolon has to be heated to more than 110C
before the colour solution is able to enter and bond to the fibre core.
Once the colour is attached, the fibres are slowly cooled to room
temperature closing the "door" on stains and locking the colour in each
Carpets made with Chromolon answer all the concerns plus creating a healthy and luxurious environment for everyone in the family yo enjoy.
fibre (polyester) absorbs very little moisture, making it inherently
resistant to water based stains. Polyester has excellent resistance to
harsh acid based dyes and natural dyed substances and has better than
average resistance to string oxidisers (such as chlorine and bleach).
Because polyester is inherent with permanent stain resistant properties
it does not require an additive to give it stain resistant properties.
Signature Carpets have been treated with a stain blocking agent to
assist the spill or soiling to stay on the surface of the fibre to allow
for easy cleaning.
extremely colourfast to light and ozone gas which means they will resist
harmful ultraviolet rays and help the carpet from fading. As a result
the Anti-fade guarantee is 5 year.
The development of Chromolon
is intended to enhance and simplify your life and add luxury to your
home. The vivid colours are just one of the inherent characteristics.
carpets also come with abrasion resistance, reduced static generation and superior dimensional stability.
Not only does Chromolon
improve your home environment, it also improves the world we live in by
being recyclable at the end of its life-cycle. Through a process of
shredding, pulverising and washing, the carpet fibres can be recycled
back into a wall-to-wall carpet, or another product can be made from the
components thus keeping the old carpet out of landfill and reducing the
need for more petro-chemicals to be refined!
Ultrapure - A self-renewing odour neutraliser that keeps your home fresh
improves the home environment by eliminating pet, cooking, smoking and
many other common household odours. This technology is bonded to the
carpet fibres. It is a non-toxic salt that is laying in wait for the
odour molecule to come in contact with your carpet. The odour is
quickly broken down to it's base components typically carbon, nitrogen,
hydrogen and oxygen that are quickly absorbed back into air. This is a
self-renewing inert salt, meaning once it absorbs the odour from your
pet, it is quickly ready to conquer the next odour that invades your
Simply put Ultrapure
is a carbolic salt that acts as a catalyst, an agent that causes
molecules and elements to react but is not part of the reaction nor is
it consumed by the reaction. Ultrapure separates the offending molecules eliminating the odour! Ultrapure is inactive, non-toxic and environmentally friendly and will not harm your pets.
