Are you concerned that you’re running out of time in obtaining the carpets you need for your marine project? Then the following information, provided by René Dupont, Senior Director at Ege Carpets, is for you.

First and foremost, says René Dupont, make sure you or your vendor have a well-organised project department because this can be essential in having your carpets supplied with just-in-time deliveries.

If you opt for pre-dyed wool construction, make sure you have an installation plan that includes all the relevant processes. Pre-dyed concepts typically have a lead time of approximately eight weeks.

However, should your timeframe be even more pressured, René Dupont suggests:

“ … you can also opt for IMO approved dye-injected carpets. These qualities, which also give you full design flexibility, are produced in a fast-track system, reducing lead time to just two or three weeks.”


This option can be very important if you are having difficulties meeting drydock dates or generally running behind schedule.
