Are you wondering how to reduce waste when having your carpets installed on your ship?
According to René Dupont, Senior Director at Ege Carpets, there are two ways of minimising waste.
Firstly, adjust the width of your carpet from the standard roll of four or five metres wide to, say, three metres. These are called “adapted” or “special” width carpets. René Dupont explains:
"These carpets better fit certain areas, such as cabins but, importantly, they minimise wastage. The carpets are produced and supplied in the adapted width and there are basically no wasteful cut-offs."
Secondly, have your cabin carpet pre-cut before it's shipped, says René Dupont. When choosing a pre-cut service for your marine project, the carpet is cut to the exact required size, resulting in no wastage whatsoever. Cutting to fit means no excess, no waste.
