About our unique digitally printed carpet conservation flooring system.
Our digitally printed carpet can visually replicate, and therefore protect, your precious and historic floors. With our unique conservation flooring system, and thanks to the work we have been doing in conjunction with The National Trust and many private houses we have developed a system to photograph and then replicate historic floors onto re-locatable, photographically imaged printed carpets in 8 grades of carpet and with no size limitations.
Our specialist digital photography is able to capture the patina of stone, the grain of old wood or the texture of carpet. Once photographed, the images are seamlessly and accurately joined together in Photoshop. We then print a full size rendition on paper for a final fitting. Once approved we produce a colour sample test, possibly a 2nd set, and then go to final print.
This ability to produce an exact replica of the floor enables us not only to duplicate the original floor but also to “repair” any damaged or missing sections and it produces stunning results. The images below show the work we have been doing for the National Trust at Melford Hall in Long Melford, Suffolk.
The carpet is printed using state-of-the-art printing techniques. The joy is that the resulting product is hard wearing and can be cleaned as part of normal housekeeping regimes. The ‘Action Back’ allows the floor underneath to breathe and circulate air, so no undesirable moisture can damage the fabric of the building’s floor underneath or the replacement carpet. We use water-based inks and therefore we have as simple, yet environmentally friendly method to conserve your precious and historic floors – so realistic that most visitors think they are walking on the real thing!’
Our carpet has been extensively tested to an exacting standard so that no harmful substances will cause any conservation issues. To be sure of what we claim we had a test carried out on a carpet we printed and laid for the National Trust. Please click the book below to see the full report in a new browser window.
