Easy maintenance and care
- Permanent built-in lifetime stain and soil resistance protection
- Wash stains off with water
SmartStrand yarns present a closed cellular structure, making it impossible for any kind of fluid or liquid to get absorbed by the fibers. This aspect of the fibers is permanent and does not alter or degrade over time. Therefore it is safe to say that every SmartStrand carpet is stain and soil resistant throughout its entire lifespan.
If by accident the carpet gets stained anyway, in most cases the soiling substances can be washed off with pure water, leaving no marks at all. Depending on the nature and intensity of the soiling substance, in some cases the use of a mild common household cleaner can be required to get rid of the stain. All SmartStrand qualities are bleach resistant (10% diluted).
partly made with natural starch
- Renewable plant based materials
- ISO-Green signature
SmartStrand fibers are for 37% made with natural starch, leading to the most eco-friendly yarn available on the market today. The amount of energy required to produce the SmartStrand Triexta fiber is a full 30% less than with other fibers. The whole production process consequently emits 63% less CO2 than is the case with other synthetic fibers.
The SmartStrand collection is made in Belgium by Lano Carpets, according to the most stringent quality requirements and following the appropriate ISO/Green signature control systems.
Superior softness, smooth & shiny luster
- Luxury comfort experience
- Natural UV-resistance
The SmartStrand silky softness and shiny lustre are reinforced by the high density of filaments in every yarn. They stand for an increased luxury aspect and comfort experience, hard to find in other carpets made with other fibers.
We can safely state that SmartStrand is the only carpet on the market that couples resilience to such high levels of softness and comfort.
The SmartStrand fiber is gifted with an extremely high natural UV-resistance, leading to an unprecedented colour fastness, avoiding a washed out appearance over time. Even after many years of use, your SmartStrand carpet will still look like new.
Exceptional material properties
- Remarkable resilience
- Revolutionary fiber
Triexta SmartStrand has been developed by DuPont as a revolutionary fiber with a particular molecular structure and composition leading to a remarkable resilience. Flattening of the carpet caused by heavy use is virtually excluded, since the fibers will always bounce back to their original form and position.
Some of our SmartStrand qualities for domestic use get exceptional contract class resilience ratings of up to 32 and even 33, earning them the title of a lifetime investment.
