Leading flooring supplier, KBAC Flooring, is now stocking four new additions to the Vanguard Collection of carpets and luxury vinyl tiles. Two of the new ranges are suitable for residential installations, and the other duo for commercial applications.
The two new Vanguard Collection brands for domestic installation, Whisky and Tango, are broadloom nylon residential cut pile carpets which, although totally complementary in the neutral colour palette offered, have distinct variances in pricing and application. Stitch and Tweed, on the other hand, are modular flooring brands. Stitch features carpet tiles of 500mm x 500mm, and Tweed, planks that measure 1200mm x 300mm.
Brandon Park, Sales Director of KBAC Flooring, says all four new Vanguard Collection brands are easy to clean as they are produced from 100% solution dyed nylon (SDN) which is superior to other carpet types in terms of colour retention, durability and performance. This is largely because of SDN’s innate bleach resistance derived from the fact that pigment is used to colour the yarn as it is extruded, melting the pigment directly into the nylon fibre as it is being made.
Vanguard Whisky is a ‘heavy duty residential carpet’ and therefore suitable for areas of the home where there is more foot traffic, or where a plush look is aimed for. Vanguard Tango is the more affordable version of the two new brands but as both offer the same nine colours, the home-owner could easily mix-and-match the two types of broadloom carpeting in various areas of the house.
“Both Vanguard Whisky and Tango nylon carpets now offer the home-owner economic and quality alternatives to polypropylene,” Park added.
Dave Keefer, KBAC Flooring Business Development Manager, says the Vanguard Collection’s Stitch and Tweed commercial flooring ranges feature appealing patterns and texture for commercial office installations. “The two new ranges provide an alternative for interior designers who want to break away from striped and linear patterns that require tessellated installation with shapes constantly repeated without any gaps or overlap,” Keefer explained.
“In the development of the new commercial Vanguard Collection, the emphasis was on providing a carpet tile that would have a seamless look and feel once installed,” he added.
