Godfrey Hirst Eco+ carpet could be the perfect fit for you!
Eco+ carpet is made using Triexta yarn which is also known as Sorona yarn. Eco+ by Godfrey Hirst Australia is the latest and most technologically advanced and environmentally friendly carpet on the market for Geelong homes.
DuPont®, who are the world leaders in the production and development of nylon fibres, and are now producing Triexta. Using a technique in which corn glucose is fermented, Triexta is made using 37% of this plant based polymer.
This renewable resource is much more sustainable and improves upon the production of nylon, polypropylene, polyester and PET which are petroleum based products. By replacing the use of petroleum with corn glucose the production process uses fewer chemicals and dramatically reduces the reliance on fossil fuels.
This means that in comparison to Nylon, 63% less greenhouse gas emissions and 37% less energy is required for the production of this fibre.
Eco+ carpets made with Sorona (Triextra) are softer than other traditionally used carpet fibres, and due to the natural composition of the fibre, has a high level of stain resistance as it does not absorb moisture. Testing shows that this yarn is far more durable than Polyester and of equal durability to that of a Nylon carpet.
The process used to colour the fibre means that Eco+ is the most colourfast carpet on the market which means it is a great choice for carpeting rooms that have a lot of natural sunlight, particularly those on the coast.
All of these factors contribute to a high quality, hard wearing, long lasting, stain resistant, fade resistant, static resistant, insect resistant and most importantly environmentally friendly flooring solution. Godfrey Hirst Eco+ carpet is the perfect carpet for any home.
