FLOR modular carpet flooring system allows you to create rugs or wall-to-wall carpeting of any size. Because the carpet comes in modular pieces, there is less waste in cutting to size and worn spots can be pulled up and replaced without removing the entire carpet. Worn carpet pieces are accepted by the manufacturer for recycling and recycled back into new carpet. Comes in a variety of colors, textures, and patterns to suit any decor.
Choose from several different types of material:
Recycled nylon--Recycled content varies from style-to-style--the more carpet they receive through their recycling program, the higher the percentage of recycled nylon in the new carpet. Most of the recycled nylon is used in the backing, which is a recyclable, vinyl-composite backing manufactured with the recycled content ASG filler (Aluminum Silicate Glass, a post-consumer waste product).
"Half-and-half"--Terra collection is made of nylon and Polylactic Acid (PLA) face-fiber, derived from corn, a bio-based, rapidly renewable resource.
Natural and renewable--Heartfelt collection is made from a blend of hemp and wool. Coir2 ("Coir Squared") collection is a Coir and Sisal blend.
