- CARPETS -

Why Carpet?

Carpets are warm in winter, cool in summer offering 10% better thermal insulation than other floorcoverings. Orthopaedic specialists confirm that the superior underfoot cushioning from the soft, shock-absorbent surface of carpeting alleviates stress and fatigue on your back and joints.

The absorption properties of carpets help reduce noise pollution and improve sound quality by minimising vibration and reflection – this is the reason for carpeting in our best movie theatres and sound studios.

Since we spend up to 70% of our time at home, improving indoor air quality in our home should be a priority for anyone concerned about allergies. Scientific studies have proven it’s the allergens in the air that cause allergic responses such as asthma and carpets are the only type of floor covering that prevents the release of dust, and therefore allergens, into the air.

INNOVATION Belgotex

INNOVATION WITH BELGOTEX

As a vertically integrated company with a strong focus on innovation, quality and environmental imperatives, their backwards integration structure gives them complete control over the production processes. Basically vertical integration means that everything from the raw materials and extrusion to tufting or needling to transport and delivery, Belgotex owns the entire setup and have designed it to maximise operational efficiency whilst minimising any negative impacts on the environment.

Their Specialised Products Division includes GreenFields Sports Turf Systems, Duraturf artificial lawn, Sportec rubber floors and a variety of vinyl products suited to various applications. These range from popular luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) to more specialised products such as medical vinyl for the healthcare sector or low electrostatic vinyl for server rooms (not all of these products are available through Floors Direct yet, enquire at your local FD outlet for special orders).

ENVIRONMENTAL Belgotex

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

Belgotex is committed to being an environmentally friendly organisation. Their main goal was to operate an eco-friendly 'green' factory, without compromising their international quality and standards. Acutely aware of the impact their activities as a company may have, they have vowed to minimise and manage any negative effects of these activities on the environment.

Their first steps have become milestones, and they’re one of the first carpet manufacturers to become ISO 14001 certification. Belgotex have proven that the long term savings both financially and environmentally outweigh the short term costs.

SUSTAINABILITY Belgotex

SUSTAINABILITY

Belgotex support two worthy CSI initiatives namely Wildlands Conservation Trust’s Project Rhino KZN, as well as Wildlands’ entrepreneurial “Green-preneurs” social upliftment scheme. Project Rhino KZN aims to eradicate rhino poaching and secure the rhino populations in Kwa-Zulu Natal, while the “Green-preneurs” project is an intricate social and environmental upliftment scheme that both greens and cleans the environment, whilst providing a much-needed source of essentials for impoverished communities.

This process not only provides a means of sustaining and uplifting each community, but also encourages an entrepreneurial spirit and mentorship within these areas. Belgotex believe wholeheartedly in a “hand-up” rather than a hand-out, and are proud to be associated with initiatives that ensure the preservation and improvement of our country, its people and the environment.
