So why choose SmartStrand?
SmartStrand fibers utilise a closed cellular structure, making it impossible for any kind of fluid or liquid to be absorbed by the yarn. This inherent property gives permanent stain resistance which does not reduce over time, allowing SmartStrand to be the only type of carpet on the market to boast stain and soil resistant throughout its entire lifespan.
If something nasty gets spilled on your carpet, in most cases the soiling substances can be washed off with pure water. Depending on the nature and intensity of the culprit, a mild common household detergent can be used to remove the residue. All SmartStrand carpets are bleach resistant with a 1:10 ratio.
SmartStrand is made up from 37% natural starch, leading to the most Eco-friendly yarn available on the market today. The amount of energy required to produce the SmartStrand Triexta is a full 30% less than other fibres such as nylon. The whole production process emits 63% less CO2 than other synthetic materials.
The SmartStrand collection is made in Belgium by Lano Carpets, according to the most stringent quality requirements and following the appropriate ISO/Green signature control systems.
SmartStrand's silky softness and shiny lustre are reinforced by the high density of filaments in every yarn. They provide a luxurious and comfortable experience under-foot, which is difficult to find in other carpets with similar resilience.
We can safely state that SmartStrand is the only carpet on the market that couples high resilience with such high levels of softness and comfort.
The SmartStrand fibre benefits from with an extremely high natural UV-resistance, leading to an unprecedented colour fastness, avoiding a washed out appearance over time. Even after many years of use, your SmartStrand carpet will still look like new.

Flattening of the carpet caused by heavy use is virtually eliminated, since the fibres will always bounce back to their original position.
