International Floor Coverings offers sisal carpet for commercial and residential projects. A coarse and strong fibre, sisal is being increasingly used in composite materials for cars, furniture and construction as well as in plastics and paper products. The plant sisal fibres are obtained from Agave Sisalana, a native of Mexico. Sisal is a renewable resource par excellence and can form part of the overall solution to climate change. Measured over its life-cycle, sisal absorbs more carbon dioxide than it produces. During processing, it generates mainly organic wastes and leaf residues that can be used to generate bioenergy, produce animal feed, fertiliser and ecological housing material and, at the end of its life cycle, sisal is 100% biodegradable.
International Floor Coverings offers a wide range of 100% sisal carpets appropriate for light to medium commercial ware. These carpets feature various Panama, boucle, herringbone and Jacquard weaves and are available in the Chinese, Tuscan, Havana, Bordeaux, Mayan Jacquard and European ranges. Click here to read more about International Floor Coverings’ sisal carpets.
International Floor Coverings offers their Platinum Antron range as part of their Contract floorcoverings for commercial environments. Antron Nylon 6.6 fibres offer a harder, denser and more resilient fibre structure than ordinary type 6 nylon because of their tighter molecular structure, resulting in carpets that are more resistant to matting, crushing, fuzzing, staining and burning. The patented hollow filament construction of the fibre, with precisely placed interior channels running along its length, minimise the visual effects of soiling and staining without compromising wear performance. Antron fibres are engineered to minimise soil-trapping crevices and are protected with patented DuPont™ Teflon® soil resistance technology. Antron fibres feature built-in antistatic protection to minimise shock. These carpets are ware rated for extremely heavy-duty use, such as commercial, healthcare and hospitality environments, as well as fire rated for all classes of buildings (2 – 9c) and fire isolated exits.
The Platinum Antron range includes the following carpets:
- Fine Line
- COM 1000
- Suvi Woven Vinyl

This amazing technology is available as both Feltex Tile by design and 1.95 metre wide Feltex Carpet by design, with a choice of constructions (cut, loop, textured loop or tip sheared).
The Feltex design team surveyed leading healthcare providers and architects to develop the Feltex Healthcare range of carpets that meet the needs of healthcare providers and patients alike.
