I would like to thank all the staff at Roberts Carpet Court for their excellent service as not only did they help me choose the best-looking carpet for my house, they also gave me some information on how to care for my carpet properly. Also, a big thanks to the carpet layer that turned up on time and did a great job laying our new carpet!
Carpet provides the foundation for the rest of your surroundings. Nothing beats the luxurious feel & warmth provided by carpet. There are many styles & fibres to choose from. Our experienced staff can help guide you in the right direction to find the perfect floorcovering that suits your individual needs.
Different qualities of carpet will perform at different levels.
To narrow down your carpet selection, there are a number of factors you need to take into consideration to help find a product that best suits your needs - What kind of "traffic" will your carpet endure? What style & texture would best suit your situation? Do you have pets?
The Carpet Institute of Australia have created a grading system known as the Australian Carpet Classification Scheme (ACCS) which tests and rates carpets based on their results. This is the most widely used grading system - however there are others in the marketplace. You will find gradings on the back of samples. They give you a very clear indication as to what level of durability each carpet will deliver so your selection is made easier.
The colour palettes available today are wide and varied. Choice of colour can create different moods, feelings and perceptions in your home. For example - shades of blue and green are often perceived as cooling, soothing and calming, light colours give areas a more spacious appearance, whilst darker colours give these areas a cosier feeling.
There are a wide variety of fibres used in carpet manufacturing, each of them delivering different looks, feel and varying lustres to suit the needs of today's customers.
Each of these different fibre types has their own strengths based on the types and style of construction they are produced in.
The fibre you choose affects the characteristics of your carpet – performance, durability, resistance to staining, feel & also cost. The amount of fibre used in carpet (density and weight) also affect its performance and cost.
Nylon: Nylon is the leading fibre used in carpet production around the world. Nylon carpets are outstanding in their ability to resist abrasive wear, loss of pile fibre due to foot traffic and resilience in recovering from pile crushing. Many years of research into nylon fibre construction has enabled fibres to be specifically engineered and treated to minimise soiling, varying the degree of lustre, maximise colour, clarity and the application of stain blocking technology which significantly increases the fibres resistance to staining and improves the cleanability. There are two methods used to add colour to the nylon fibre, one is continuous dyeing whereby the nylon fibre is produced in white form and the colour is then added. The other method is called solution dyeing where the actual colour is added to the actual molten nylon polymer before the yarn is produced – meaning that the colour runs right through the fibre. Both methods deliver an excellent finished yarn that will deliver excellent on floor performance, with easy maintenance.
Solution Dyed Nylon: Colour is added to the fibre at the time it is produced. This means that the colour runs right through the fibre - not just coated on the outside – offering excellent colour retention. Solution Dyed Nylon is very resistant to fading, performing well in areas with direct sunlight. This fibre also boasts excellent cleaning properties, as stronger cleaning chemicals can be used in most cases – without stripping the colour from the outside of the fibre.
Econyl® regenerated nylon: Econyl® regenerated nylon is 100% recycled yarn made from nylon waste such as old carpets, fabric scraps and fishing nets. Through the regeneration process, Econyl® yarn never loses its virgin qualities which means it can be recycled an infinite amount of times, making it a perfect sustainable fibre solution.
RESCUE. REGENERATE. REMAKE. REIMAGINE.
The Econyl® regeneration system starts with rescuing waste, like old carpets, fishing nets, fabric scraps and industrial plastic from landfills and oceans all over the world. That waste is then sorted and cleaned to recover all of the nylon possible.
Through a radical regeneration and purification process, the nylon waste is recycled right back to its original purity. That means Econyl® regenerated nylon is exactly the same as virgin nylon.
Econyl® regenerated nylon is processed into carpet yarn and textile yarn for the fashion and interior industries.
The beauty of Econyl® regenerated nylon is that it has the potential to be recycled infinitely, without ever losing its quality. We believe circular design is the future and using Econyl® is our first step on that journey.

Exclusive Range Econyl® Origins, Econyl® Source, Econyl® Awaken, Econyl® Inception, Econyl® Provenance, Econyl® Genesis, Econyl® Frontier and Econyl® Expanse are only available at your local Carpet Court store.
Polypropylene: Polypropylene fibre is coloured using the "solution dyed" process described earlier. Polypropylene has excellent soil and stain resistant properties and also boasts excellent colour fastness. The fibre does not quite have the same resilience and recovery from general pile crushing from day to day wear as nylon. When constructed in tight dense loop pile carpets it delivers exceptional service, wear and tear and excellent value for money.
Wool: is seen by many as the classic carpet fibre. Being a natural fibre, wool has excellent recovery from stress under the influence of moisture so that wet cleaning revives the pile as well as removing soil. Where does the wool come from? Wool produced in Australia is generally believed too soft for use in carpet. The vast majority of wool used for carpet comes from sheep that live in colder climates i.e. New Zealand, England and Scotland where the sheep grow "coarse" wool which is ideal for the wear and tear that carpets endure when used correctly in dense pile construction, wool offers long term durability, appearance retention and the ability to keep its fresh beauty and unquestionably "grows old gracefully".
Polyester: Polyester is another synthetic fibre. Polyester offers excellent stain & fade resistance as well as performance and value for money. Polyester fibre is often made from recycled materials – making it more environmentally friendly.
Blends: There are a number of blended fibres used in carpet production. 50% / 50% wool/nylon or polypropylene to 80% wool / 20% nylon and variations in between. Combining fibres can mean you get a blend of the positive properties associated with two types. For example, you can get a carpet which delivers the soft luxurious feel of wool with the added abrasive quality and strength of nylon.
