Common Questions

What do I need to consider when laying the carpet PLANK?

With a sustainable and environmentally friendly PET backing, tretford INTERLIFE planks are designed for loose-lay installation. In large commerical areas greater than 30 m2 or offices using castor chairs, we recommend installing tretford PLANKS using tackifier adhesives such as F-Ball's F54, Arde AF-825, Uzin U 1000 or Bostik Laybond carpet tackifier.

tretford's unique construction allows the carpet to be cut in any directions without fraying.

 

Can tretford be installed on new subfloors, damp cellars or in basements?

Before laying tretford carpet, regardless of whether it is carpet tiles or a continuous carpet roll, ensure that the sub-floor is dry, level and free of grease and dust. If the sub-floor was recently poured or damp, a moisture barrier or DPM needs to be applied before installing. Using a hygrometer, the relative hunidity of the sub-floor must NOT exceed 75%.

 

Can tretford tiles and plank's be installed together?

Since tretford's tiles are installed in checkerboard pattern while tretford plank is installed facing the same direction, it's impossible to combine them in one-floor design.

 

 

What is the difference between INTERLAND, EVER, ROLL and INTERLIFE?

The pile material of tretford INTERLAND and EVER consists of 80% Cashmere goat hair and 20% pure new wool. It offers superior comfort for your living quarters.

As broadloom, Ever (without a mothproofing agent) is available in 40 different colours. Our trendy “Dolce Vita” and “Voyage” colour collections provide additional design options for interiors fitted out with INTERLAND broadloom or carpet tiles.

The pile material of tretford ROLL consists of 80% Cashmere goat hair, 15% nylon and 5% viscose and is available as broadloom in 48 colours. The pile material of tretford INTERLIFE consists of 70% Cashmere goat hair and 30% nylon and is available in carpet tiles and planks in 40 different colours. INTERLIFE and ROLL are highly durable carpets and can thus be used in areas that experience heavy foot traffic or in offices with castor chairs.

Does tretford have to be glued down?

The entire surface area of the continuous carpet should be glued to the sub-floor with suitable carpet glue to guarantee the full 5-year warranty. Careful preparatiion of the sub-floor is essential for optimum results. Please also observe our detailed carpet laying instructions.

 

Why is the texture of tretford carpeting not perfectly even throughout?

We primarily use the long top hair of Cashmere goats, which differs in colour and texture from animal to animal. Our natural Cashmere goats' hair is collected once a year and subsequently sorted and gently washed. Mongolian goat's natura habitat can be quite harsh, and their coasts are subjected to extreme weather conditions which can cause certain irregularities. Even our unique manufacturing process cannot fully compensate for these natural colour deviations, resulting in unevenness in the ribbed texture. All of this is part of the unmistakable character of tretford. Like linen, tretford carpet has specific little irregularities; which make it one-of-a-kind.
