Scala Twist: Let’s twist again
THE Scala Solutions line of impervious-backed polypropylene carpet is said by LANO to be famed for its practicality and home-like appeal, and is seen as a popular choice in social housing, care homes and education environments.
Made by Lano in Belgium, Scala Twist is a new style to add depth to this range through a classic 1/8th gauge twist-pile in a 1,200g/sq m weight.
Featuring a two-ply Essenz solution dyed yarn, Scala Twist is said to be stain-resistant and won’t fade, even under intensive cleaning schedules. With a newly developed impervious foam back, Scala Twist is said to be ready for the most rigorous use.
Available 4m-wide, Scala Twist comes in a palette of 20 colours, reflecting its dual role in commercial and education with workman blues and charcoals and in environments needing a home-like feel in classic neutrals.
‘The Scala Solutions range is well-established in the contract sector and has become a stalwart for many contractors and retailers undergoing soft-contract installations,’ explains Gary Alp, UK sales manager.
‘Now with the introduction of Scala Twist we’re giving the range even more depth, keeping its integrity as a true all-rounder, just as capable in a commercial environment as it is in a care-home or school.’
With the impervious foam-backing improving the carpet’s comfort, acoustic and thermal insulation, Scala Twist enhances the performance of solution-dyed Essenz yarn, for a carpet that performs just as good as it looks.
