Healthcare, hospital and care home carpets represent an especially demanding sector of the market and taking this into account, products for healthcare must be resilient, have good colour fastness and be easy to clean.
Kilworth work with all the major manufacturers of impervious backed, heavy duty healthcare carpets and this sector of the marketplace is one in which we are particularly strong with in excess of 25 years’ experience selling and fitting these product types.
Impervious Backing - Within the testing environment of healthcare, carpets experience much soiling and many spillages. Specially engineered products with an impervious backing trap the spillages within the pile of the carpet, enabling the soiling to be removed from the pile by localised cleaning methods.
Solution Dyed Yarns - In the aggressive Healthcare sector of the market, carpets often need to be cleaned on a daily basis. Therefore manufacture with ‘solution dyed’ yarns, which are resistant to bleach and staining, helps to preserve the overall appearance and maintains good colour fastness and minimal fading.
