Scientific testing helps ensure great in-home results
We believe the test that matters most is how our carpet performs in your custom’s home, and that’s where we focus our eforts. We use scientific method to test our carpets in a way that we think is truly predictive of the way they will perform in real life.
* The ASTM D5417 Vettermann Drum Test uses a drum tumbler that’s more than 5 times heavier than the industry standard Light Ball Hexapod, because we believe it simulates the actual dynamics and forces of human footsteps more accurately.
* The ASTM D6540 Drum Soiling Test is a rigorous test that’s designed to assess the carpet’s ability to resist household soiling in a repeatable manner both before and after cleaning cycles.
* Real-World Walk Test is a test where we install carpet in a special high-traffic location that allows us to measure the longterm effect of real-world foot traffic – without waiting years to see the result.
* The ASTM D6972 Chair Caster Test is an extreme test of carpet durability that is good at predicting carpet performance in high traffic areas and in pivot points around doors, corners or stairs where the foot traffic has a turning motion vs. straight line walking.
* And There’s More…but you get the picture
