Impervious Carpets

Bathgate Flooring specialises in the supply and installation of impervious carpets in hospitals, nursing homes, nurseries and staffrooms.

Impervious carpet backing is normally used where clean ability is an important factor. Impervious carpet offers varying degrees of impermeability. Aqueous liquids, such as water, can normally penetrate through conventional carpet. Thus, in cases where water is spilled on conventional carpet, it typically seeps through and ultimately reaches the flooring below. This trapped water can lead to bacterial or fungal growth which can further cause odours and deterioration of carpet backing or flooring. In the impervious carpet the backing prevents water from passing through the carpet. Spillages can be cleaned and removed quickly and effectively.

The impervious backing in the carpet also permits washing of the carpet with generous amounts of water without wetting the subfloor. Therefore, impervious carpets can be shampooed and wet methods used on them for regular maintenance.

Impervious backed carpets are manufactured with loop or cut pile surfaces and are available as plain, mottled or patterned.

We offer impervious carpet flooring from the top manufacturers such as Ege, Heckmondwike, Gradus and Joseph Hamilton & Seaton.
