Are you looking to reduce your downtime when installing your marine carpet?
René Dupont, Senior Director at Ege Carpets, gives you three simple tips to help you optimise your time. For one thing, you can opt for a carpet with an integrated underlay. René Dupont explains:
"By choosing this, instead of a traditional, woven textile backing which normally requires a separate underlay and a double-stick installation, you can now install the carpet directly to the floor, saving time, weight, cost – and the environment!"
Secondly, you can opt for a carpet that is produced with adapted width. So you don’t need to find the time – or the space – to cut the carpet down to your requirements on-site.
Finally, René Dupont suggests, have your carpet pre-cut to fit certain areas, such as cabins, before installation. Pre-cut carpets save a lot of time and are also easy to install while the vessel is in-service, if needed.
These are just three practical ways to reduce the costly downtime!
