What makes Carpet with Attached Backing unique?
- Kanga helps absorb the punishment of foot traffic that causes your carpet’s face fiber to mat and crush. The result is that your carpet will look better for longer.
- Resistant to most household cleaning supplies. Its moisture resistance makes the clean-up of spills much easier than with conventional carpet.
- Resists mold, mildew or bacteria, making it an excellent choice for any damp or below grade installations.
- “Easy Release” outer skin layer allows for a cleaner removal with less of the crumbly mess left by conventional type cushions.
- They are incredibly light, making them easy to handle. With a few simple, inexpensive tools and double-face tape you can complete a beautiful, quality installation in no time.
What are some technical details?
- Carpet is commonly made in widths of 12 feet (3.7 m) and 15 feet (4.6 m) in North America.
