Release date: March 2003

Client: DuPont

Title: New Artisan from Modulus

A High Tech Carpet Tile Inspired By Traditional Craftsmanship -

Modulus Flooring Systems has used state of the art manufacturing technology and an outstanding solution dyed yarn from DuPont™ to recreate and reposition Artisan, its extra heavy contract textured loop pile carpet tile, designed for the most demanding of commercial installations.

Modulus now employs advanced Full repeat Scroll (FRS) machinery to achieve Artisan’s distinctive heavily textured appearance, the inspiration for which was provided by homespun rugs and mats created by traditional weavers. The new manufacturing route has sharpened the appearance and clarity of the thirteen commercially attractive colourways in the range, enhancing the aesthetic appeal of this versatile multi-flecked carpet tile.

Artisan is manufactured using Antron® Excel SC yarn. The specialist polymers in this DuPont 6,6 nylon yarn provide the tile with exceptional stain resistance qualities and because the fibres are solution dyed, Artisan tiles are colourfast, even when exposed to extreme sunlight and the most rigorous cleaning regimes.

With the inherent properties of the DuPont yarn, an extra heavy contract rating and a pile weight of 800gsm, new high performance Artisan is an ideal choice for a wide range of commercial applications including high traffic areas such as foyers, lobbies, offices, corridors and terminal areas in airports. The tile carries a 15-year warranty.
