Carpet grading – Australian Carpet Classification Scheme (ACCS)
We recommend selecting a carpet that has been graded by the Australian Carpet Classification Scheme (ACCS). Carpets are classified under the ACCS labelling system according to their durability and appearance retention. Carpets graded by the ACCS carry distinctive labels featuring a star system that provides guidance on the likely appearance retention and performance properties of the carpet.
The more stars the better the carpet?s durability and appearance retention properties.
All ACCS graded carpets carry a minimum two-year performance warranty, supported by the manufacturer or supplier.
Floorwerx’s manufacturer is among the list of companies that are ACCS Graded!
|The yellow and blue labels identify carpets that have been graded for residential use. Residential ratings can have a maximum of six stars.The Star system of rating allows you to quickly decide which carpet is suitable for your needs.|
|The gold and black labels identify carpets graded for contract or commercial use. Contract ratings can have a maximum of four stars.Some carpets will carry both Residential and Contract gradings.Be sure to look for the numbered ACCS label ? these carpets have been tested by NATA accredited laboratories and assessed by the ACCS Panel of carpet experts. Beware of untested claims of carpet?s suitability for different uses.|
