The Tecsom carpet tile concept offers a wide range of colours, constructions and designs. The use of Jetprint technology can offer a range of customised designs and colours.
Tecsom ranges comprise a 100% recycled PVC Backing System, reinforced with glass fibre. The backing promotes improved acoustic performance, flexibility and tear resistance (manufacturer claim), and contributes to the fact that Tecsom carpet tiles initially are constructed of over 60% recycled materials. Tecsom carpet tiles carry the 'Red Book' accreditation for environmental performance under the British Research Establishment (BRE), and Tarkett claims Tecsom are the only carpet tile to have a 100% recycled backing system.
Tecsom Carpet tiles also feature 100% solution dyed polyamide and technical yarns (see Glossary), making them resistant to traffic, light fastness and wear. Significant water savings are achieved in the production of solution dyed yarns in comparison to 'stock' or 'hank' dyed solutions. These yarns are used to create three different textures of material: loop-pile, cut-pile and structured.
