PRODUCT SOLUTIONS AND MATERIALS QUALITY DOES FLY BETTER
Carpeting can be made using more or less. More weight, more material, more resources, more energy, more waste. ANKER have opted for less. Hence, ANKER can provide its customers with a high-flying carpet quality. And with solutions and individual accessories that are consistent with every of its customer’s needs.
COMFORT ACCOUSTIC BACK QUIET AS AN EMPTY PLANE
One highly effective contribution to greater comfort through less noise is the new ANKER-C.A.B. (comfort acoustic backing) for aviation carpeting. The special design for aviation needs consists of a three dimensional weave that creates a high-density matrix of microscopic sound-absorbing cavities. This carpet backing acts like an “absorber net”, capturing noise (particularly impact noise) and prevents noise from spreading through the passenger compartment. In this way, ANKER-C.A.B. makes a major contribution to acoustically optimizing the interior, as well as acting as an excellent insulating layer to the under floor as well as any lower decks.
PRE SHRINKING STAYS TRIM
Some airlines face the problem that their carpets shrink while in use. ANKER has developed a process, which reduces the shrinkage to a minimum.
SOLUTION DYED THE HEART OF BRIGHTNESS
The solution dyed yarn has several strong advantages
- consistent color from length to length, no color differences at transitions
- excellent cleaning properties, even with chlorinated cleaning compounds
- hides dirt effectively due to trilobal fiber cross-section
- resistant to UV radiation and yellowing
- more environmentally friendly dyeing process – significantly reduced fresh water, waste water, energy and CO²
ANKER’s self-adhesive backing is designed for easy and faster fitting of carpeting in aircraft. As an option it comes with a protective foil that will make cutting and fitting even easier. After its useful life, any carpets with this backing can be removed without leaving the marks common with conventional adhesive tape, resulting in practically no residue at all.
In order to make replacing carpets significantly faster and prevent residues to be left on the floorboards after removal, ANKER provide double-sided adhesive tape. It comes with various properties: on the one side (facing the carpet) it has greater adhesive strength to ensure that the carpet will not come loose while in use. On the other side (facing the floor) it has an adhesive property ensuring that this tape can be removed without leaving any residue but also without it coming loose while in use.
