More quiet, better indoor climate

INTERLIFE broadloom is an excellent feel-good choice when it comes to the interior design of commercial spaces (such as hotels) or your home office. A pile material blend of 70% Cashmere goat hair and 30% polyamide makes this carpet hardwearing and easy-care. At the same time, it insulates impact sound and effectively reduces particulate matter in indoor air. Broadloom is easily cut into place and won’t fray, which facilitates its combination with diverse flooring materials.

Common Questions

Why is broadloom carpet only available in a width of 2 metres?

Owing to production factors, it is not possible to manufacture tretford carpets wider than 2m. The  advantage is this width is that the carpet rolls can be transported more easily in stairways, for example.

Are the seams obvious when several carpet webs are laid side by side?

It is not possible to prevent a slight seam when laying several carpet webs. A particularly neat seam can be achieved by trimming the factory-finish edge. As a rule, it is virtually impossible to perfectly align the individual ribs in two webs because the carpet shifts slightly as the glue dries.

Usually the seam is noticeable right after laying when the room is still empty of furnishings. In our experience, this appearance soon diminishes due to the traffic on and use of the carpet. With time, the ribs "settle" and the individual fibres become overlapped. This conceals the seam somewhat so that it is less noticeable. It is, however, not possible to make the seam completely "invisible".

What do I need to consider when laying INTERLIFE on stairs?

Tretford INTERLIFE broadloom is unusually hard-wearing. Use tretford stair profiles to protect edges that are subjected to extreme stresses. For further information, please consult the carpet laying guidelines for INTERLIFE broadloam.

What do I need to consider when laying carpet over underfloor heating systems?

When laying tretford continuous carpet over underfloor heating, make sure the entire surface area is glued down. Observe the supply temperature of the heating system.

An electric underfloor heating system, for instance, has a supply temperature that is too high, which is why tretford carpet is not suitable for use with this type of system.

Ensure that there is sufficient relative humidity during the heating period.

Does tretford have to be glued down?

The entire surface area of the continuous carpet should definitely be glued to the sub-floor with a suitable carpet glue in order to guarantee the full 5 year warranty. Careful preparation of the sub-floor is essential for optimum results. Please also observe our detailed carpet laying instructions.

What is the difference between INTERLAND, EVER and INTERLIFE?

The pile material of tretford INTERLAND and EVER consists of 80% Cashmere goat hair and 20% pure new wool. It offers superior comfort for your living quarters.

As broadloom, Ever (without a mothproofing agent) is available in 40 different colors. Our trendy “Dolce Vita” and “Voyage” color collections provide additional design options for interiors fitted out with INTERLAND broadloom or carpet tiles.

The pile material of tretford INTERLIFE consists of 70% Cashmere goat hair and 30% polyamide. This highly durable carpet can thus be used in areas that experience heavy foot traffic or in offices with caster chairs. INTERLIFE is available as broadloom, carpet tiles and carpet floorboards in 40 different colors. 

Why is the texture of tretford carpeting not perfectly even throughout?

We primarily use the long top hair of Cashmere goats. And this differs in color and texture from animal to animal. It is collected once a year and subsequently sorted and gently washed. Cashmere goat hair is a natural fiber. The Cashmere goat’s natural habitat can be quite harsh and this hair is subjected to extreme weather conditions. It thus shows certain irregularities.  Even our unique manufacturing process cannot fully compensate for these irregularities. Natural color deviations are also possible as is some unevenness in the carpet’s ribbed texture. All this is part of the unmistakable character of Cashmere goat hair. 

Just like linen, our carpeting has specific little irregularities; these are typical for genuine tretford carpeting, which is one-of-a-kind.
