Common Questions

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

With a sustainable and environmentally friendly PET backing, tretford INTERLIFE tiles are designed for loose-lay installation. In large commercial areas greater than 30 m2 or offices using castor chairs, we recommend installing tretford tiles using tackifier adhesives such as F-Ball's F41, Ardex AF-825, Uzin U 1000 or Bostik Laybond carpet tackifier. tretford's unique construction allows the carpet to be cut in any direction without fraying.

 

Can tretford also 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 subfloor is dry, level and free of all grease and dust. If the subfloor was recently poured or damp, a moisture barrier or DPM needs to be applied before installing. Using a hygrometer, the relative humidity of the subfloor must NOT exceed 75%.

 

Can tretford tiles and tretford 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 different colours. The pile material of tretford INTERLIFE consists of 70% Cashmere goat hair and 30% nylon. INTERLIFE is available in carpet tiles and planks in 40 differnt colours.

ROLL and INTERLIFE are highly durable carpets and can thus be used in areas that experience heavy foot traffic or in offices with caster chairs.

Does tretford have to be glued down?


The entire surface area of the continuous carpet should be glued to the subfloor with suitable carpet glue to guarantee the full 5-year warranty. Careful preparation of the subfloor 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 natural habitat can be quite harsh, and their coats are subjected to extreme weather conditions which can cause certain irregularities. Even our unique manufacturing process cannot fully compensate for thesenatural colour deviations, resulting in unevenness in the carpet's ribbed structure. 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.
