A new ultra lightweight carpet is being introduced.
B.I.C. Carpets sets the first steps with a revolutionary aircraft carpet. This carpet boast a significant difference in weight compared to standard carpet. They are made of eco-friendly yarns (100% recycled content) while still ensuring optimal technical performance and excellent durability.
B.I.C. is aware of the constantly changing landscape which led to the investment in search of innovative solutions: we want to make the carpets look different to traditional ones and increase the strength and durability.
After running methods of testing for burning behaviour, anti statics, color and surface appearance to determine changes in appearance of textile floor coverings, we found, besides ultra light weight coverings, which are non-carpet, our very durable carpets can deal with tough stains as well as absorb dirt and dust.
We have worked hard in developing new programs and look to help airlines that care about fuel burning savings resulting in lower CO2 emissions and that focus on cost efficiency by saving fuel.”
“At B.I.C.-Carpets we strive to meet the environmental regulations that protect the health and safety of our planet. We are committed to reach our goals of improvement concerning reducing the waste of our production process, our choice of ecological resources and our contribution to natural power sources.”
