New carpet tiles from Shaw Contract offer classic looks and meet carbon neutral and comfort demands
Shaw Contract has introduced two new carpet tile styles – Beam and Braid into its popular Suited collection. Taking their cues from the feeling of purpose and community that is associated with the skills of weaving, braiding and crafting, Beam and Braid offer a sense of calm and connectivity, with the tactile response that the Suited collection provides.
Featuring smaller-scale, linear patterns, Beam and Braid both complement the Suited collection styles which include Check, Houndstooth, Jacquard and Textile, and share a palette that combines beautifully with these other Suited styles.
Supporting customer-focused solutions, styles Beam and Braid are made in the UK and can be specified with either TaskWorx™ backing or Shaw Contract’s new backing solution for the EMEA region, ComfortWorx™.
Occupant health and wellbeing is a critical consideration for productive environments where we can work, learn and collaborate successfully. Sound can negatively impact building occupants.
Tiles with ComfortWorx backing provide improved impact sound reduction and improved sound absorption over standard carpet tile and hard surfaces. They also offer underfoot comfort benefits.
The Suited carpet tile collection has been optimised for low embodied carbon and is a carbon neutral collection. Styles Beam and Braid are manufactured with Shaw Contract’s EcoSolution Q100™ nylon fibre (Eco Solution Q™ with an allocated 100% content from post-industrial sources). Shaw Contract’s re[TURN]® reclamation programme for EMEA also offers re-use and recycling options across its carpet tile collections.
Shaw Contract’s sustainability pledge – People Together, Planet Forever – is focused around both social and environmental impacts, and how our choices can be fair towards each other and mindful of the environment.
These new styles and a range of collections, made in the UK, will be displayed during Clerkenwell OPEN in Shaw Contract’s London showroom 9-10th September; and at Workplace Paris, at Shaw Contract’ stand B22-C25 on 5-7th October 2021.
