Shaw Contract Enhances Its Carbon Neutral ‘Rapid Select’ Collection with New Neutrals

Shaw Contract is proud to announce the introduction of five specially selected neutral shades to its well-established Rapid Select collection.  Rapid Select is recognised as the premier flooring choice for professionals seeking quick turnaround without compromising on quality, performance, or design.

The addition of these warmer, lighter neutrals enhances the versatility of the existing Graph, Nook, and Roam styles, expanding the creative possibilities for commercial interiors and educational facilities.

Expanded Colour Palette for Enhanced Creativity

The refresh of the collection introduces new dynamics in the colour spectrum of the Graph and Nook styles, now boasting 13 colourways, and the Roam style with 8. This expansion provides professionals with an even greater range of options to tailor any commercial space to their exacting standards.

Commitment to Carbon Neutrality and Low Embodied Carbon

The Rapid Select collection is now carbon neutral and optimised for low embodied carbon utilising Shaw Contract’s EcoSolution Q100™ yarn.  EcoSolution Q100™ is a high-performance nylon fibre made from 100% recycled content, contributing to decreasing the Global Warming Potential (GWP) of Shaw Contract products. Produced in a carbon-neutral manufacturing facility in Scotland, Rapid Select underscores Shaw Contract’s dedication to sustainability.

Promoting Material Health and Wellbeing

Available with TaskWorx® and ComfortWorx® backings, Rapid Select not only supports carbon neutrality but also prioritises recyclability and material health. ComfortWorx® is engineered for acoustic and underfoot comfort, reducing impact noise by 50% and enhancing sound absorption by 65% compared to standard carpet tile and hard surfaces, with each square meter created from 67 PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) plastic bottles.

In line with Shaw Contract’s commitment to transparency and environmental stewardship, the collection is accompanied by an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) and boasts Cradle to Cradle and Indoor Air Comfort Gold® certifications for low VOC emissions.

The new additions to the Rapid Select collection are designed to inspire creativity, support material health, and revitalise commercial projects. The collection is accompanied by a 15-year warranty and is also included in the Shaw Contract In-Stock UK programme. This means customers can select from a specially curated selection of high-quality flooring options, with 24-hours dispatch on receipt of acknowledgement*.  *Terms and conditions apply.

The Rapid Select collection is currently showcased at Shaw Contract’s Great Sutton Street showroom in Clerkenwell, London.
