Heckmondwike FB and Supacord
HECKMONDWIKE FB, a UK manufacturer of fibre-bonded carpet, has reported an increase in demand for its renowned heavy duty Supacord range for use in educational environments.
The company attributes this rise to schools seeking carpet with anti-fraying properties.
Jeremy Broadhead, commercial manager for Heckmondwike FB, said: ‘With pressure on schools to choose durable, long lasting carpet solutions, Supacord is becoming more popular than ever. Schools and colleges have seen how some type of loop pile carpets can ravel and fray and there’s a noticeable trend towards fibre bonded carpet as it’s known for being so much more durable.’
Heckmondwike FB has supplied the education sector with Supacord for more than 40 years and says now the range has a more comprehensive choice than ever.
There are 42 shades available and the option of tile or sheet, to suit project requirements. ‘Supacord is renowned for not ravelling or fraying, even in the most heavy-duty environments,’ says Heckmondwike. ‘It also provides good acoustic properties and reduced noise transmittance, which is really important in educational environments.
‘Like all Heckmondwike FB’s carpet, Supacord has anti-static and anti-slip properties, it also offers low maintenance. Great thermal performance is another property attributed to Supacord, which is warm and comfortable underfoot.
‘Schools like the fact that Supacord is available in all primary colours to match their branding or classroom themes. Supacord can also be complemented by bespoke entrance matting in Heckmondwike FB’s Diamond, with integrated logos or customised designs.
‘This is widely used in schools to create a striking entrance area or reinforce an education establishment’s ethos.
