Colortec carpets are manufactured with modern tufting technology. Colortec is, compared to woven carpets, a high output production.
Colortec tufted carpets are not printed, but using the same type of pre-dyed woollen yarns as woven carpets. This gives the carpet a woven look and ensures great color brilliance and clear design definition.
Colortec provides unlimited design possibilities using up to 7 colours and qualities range from 1100 g/m2 to 1900 g/m2.
Dansk Wilton produces custom design Colortec carpets using only pre dyed yarns in an 80/20 wool blend. Colortec is produced in 400 or 500 cm width with an integrated felt backing which optimizes the handling process during installation.
Colortec carpets are used for areas where longevity and design flexibility are essential. We have a wide range of qualities suitable for all areas – from hotel rooms to high traffic public areas.
Dansk Wilton was the first carpet manufacturer in Europe to start production of Colortec carpet solutions.
Our wool blend:
Because quality is the very heart of what we do, we select materials of the finest quality.
Wool is still recognised as the best fibre for use in carpets and in a blend with nylon its wear properties improves. An 80/20 blend of wool/nylon is generally recognised as the most suitable and durable make up of a carpet for use in heavy traffic areas, for instance in hotels, on cruise liners, ferries, in restaurants, theatres, cinemas and casinos.
We use a wool blend consisting of the finest grades of British and New Zealand wool. This combination provides the best results, both in terms of expression and strength:
With New Zealand wools purity and whiteness, we can achieve lighter, more delicate shades and high clarity of colour. British wool is naturally tough because it has developed over thousands of years to protect Sheep from the harshest of conditions, making the wool suitable for carpet manufacturing.
A unique spiral crimp built into the wool fibre means a wool carpet will retain its look for longer because it has natural bounce-back abilities. The good capability to recover also makes walkways seem less worn and furniture marks less visible.
