Their are two main types of modern carpet which are commonly used in today's applications, namely Tufted and Woven -

  • Tufted Carpets usually have two backings, the first is the primary backing, this is usually made of a mesh type of polypropylene, that holds the pile in place and then their is a secondary backing (usually made of either jute or polypropylene) that is glued onto the primary backing, the correct lamination of these two backings, is what gives a carpet it's strength and dimensional stability.
  • Woven Carpets normally have just a single or primary backing, this carpet is usually an Axminster or Wilton carpet, with this type of carpet the backing consists of lengths of what are called "Weft" and "Warped" filaments or twine, whereby these twines and the Pile are woven to incorporate into what is seen on the underside of this carpet and is called the backing and this woven backing is what gives this carpet it's superior strength and dimensional stability above a tufted carpet.  These carpets are more commonly used in a commercial application such as hotels, pubs and clubs more so than in a domestic environment.
 
Carpet Grading
  • For peace of mind, look for carpets that have been graded by the Australian Carpet Classification Scheme (ACCS). This is a national carpet grading scheme covering all types of carpet and all carpet fibres, according to their durability and appearance retention.
