Shaw utilizes the most durable carpet fibres available to create a beautiful, plush layer underfoot. Available in a wide range of colours and styles, Shaw carpet has eleven stunning collections, including the classic designs found in AnsoColorwall, Anso Living and Anso Originals, beautiful neutrals found in Bellera, lush finishes featured in Caress, subtle and luxurious prints found in Caress Patterns, practical basics available in Foundations, bold prints and texture found in Life Happens, natural tones featured in Soft Shades, subtle texture found in St Jude, and unique patterns available in TruAccents.
In addition to their extensive selection, what sets Shaw carpet apart is its exclusive, patented Stain and Soil Resistance system, known as R2X. First introduced in 2001 following extensive research and rigorous testing, this system is considered a new generation in carpet technology, as it effectively protects carpets against spills, splatters, and staining. Unlike traditional repellents, which only protect the carpet’s surface, R2X provides total fiber coverage, meaning the carpet is protected from top to bottom. As a result, spills which make contact with the base of the yarn are not able to penetrate its surface.
SoftBac platinum carpet backing
Another advantage of Shaw carpet is its innovative SoftBac platinum carpet backing, which is superior to traditional carpet backings for a number of reasons:
- It delivers unparalleled softness and flexibility
- It eliminates the possibility of wrinkles
- It is stronger, has fewer visible seams, and is more resistant to seam peaking
- It has improved flexibility during the cold winter months
- It absorbs sound and offers superior insulation
Carpets: Superior Warranty
Shaw stands by the quality of their products and offers a generous warranty on all of their carpet fibres, guaranteeing that you will enjoy the comfort and style of their carpet for years to come. Although the warranty varies depending on your selection, in most cases, it covers wear for up to twenty years.
