Cradle to Cradle Certified
Reclamation and Recycling
As evidence of their commitment to reducing their ecological footprint, Shaw has established itself as an industry leader in both the reclamation and recycling of carpet. To encourage a more circular economy, Shaw flooring reclaims and recycles end-of-use carpet. In fact, since 2006, they have utilized more than 900 million pounds of post-consumer carpet, creatively making use of materials which were previously discarded as waste. This innovation is a true testament to their environmental philosophy and has led more and more customers to express an interest in Shaw flooring.
In recognition of their commitment to sustainability, Shaw flooring holds a number of prestigious certifications. In addition to being Cradle to Cradle Certified,they are also certified by Greenguard, CRI Green Label Plus, FloorScore, NSF 140, and countless others. They also maintain Health Product Declarations (HPDs) for all of their commercial carpet products and Living Building Challenge (LBC) Compliant Declare labels for their EcoWorx® tile products. At Chestnut Flooring, we carry an extensive selection of Shaw flooring, including a wide range of carpet, hardwood, laminate, and vinyl.
Carpet has come a long way in recent years thanks to the innovation of Shaw flooring
They utilize 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
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. When shopping for Shaw flooring in Toronto, Hardwood is most often requested, as Shaw is known for their vast selection of beautiful, quality wood. Whether you prefer hardwood that is smooth, handscraped, wire brushed, or reclaimed, you are sure to find what you’re looking for within Shaw’s four, diverse collections that feature ash, birch, hickory, kupay, maple, oak, pine, and walnut. Shaw also carries a wide range of beautiful and durable laminate products. Available in 21 styles in a vast array of colours including gold, green, grey, orange, red, and white, as well as beige, black and brown, Shaw’s laminate is designed to make a statement in your home. In addition to its resilience, their innovative Repel Laminate is easy to install and is stain resistant.
As its name implies, Repel Laminate repels spills, giving you time to clean up before a stain develops
Because it is water resistant, a wet mop can be used to clean up any spills, dirt or debris. As a result, this product is incredibly easy to maintain so you can enjoy and preserve the beauty of your floors for many years. In addition to being stain resistant, Shaw’s laminate is also scratch and fade resistant, making it an ideal solution for homes with children or pets. It features LocNPlace technology so it is suitable for customers who prefer DIY installation.
Shaw has also developed an extremely resilient luxury vinyl flooring (LVF) collection; since they consider LVF to be their forte, they cleverly named their collection Floorte®.This collectionuses high-definition printing to achieve LVF that realistically mimics the look of more expensive materials such as tile and hardwood.Floorte® features a FOLD N TAP®™locking system which has been precisely engineered to make installation a snap.Floorte® floors have quickly gained popularity due to their incredible strength, durability, and flexibility. In addition, they are waterproof, which makes them ideal for areas frequently exposed to moisture such as bathrooms, kitchens, mudrooms, and basements. Floorte® is available in a range of levels, which determines their wear layer. The Bella and Largo Plank styles have a 20 mil wear layer and their surface is protected with AmourBead; Casa features a 12 mil wear layer, while Mantua Plank has an 8 mil wear layer.
