Creating solutions that meet specific conditions imposed by a client’s design and budget requirements is always our primary focus. The importance we place on allowing our clients the ability to transform their most creative concepts into beautiful realities, regardless, of tight budget restrictions is never more evident than with our ColourOptics Print Program.

The ColourOptics Zimmer Chromojet printing unit is one of the most advanced systems in the world. Radically different from all other methods of printing, ColourOptics doesn’t require screens and is revolutionary in its ability to create unlimited pattern repeats. This unique system allows for the use of up to twenty-four colors per design, with such flexibility there is little or no restrictions in design and most importantly, unlike many other systems, ColourOptics doesn’t use standard color banks, allowing us to match color exactly to our clients’ palettes.

In addition to its color and design flexibility, another important factor is the precise printing capability of our ColourOptics print program’s machinery. The carpet is stationary when the printing process takes place, leading to accuracy of design, especially important when multi-width matching is required. Deepest color penetration and excellent print resolution are the result of our unrivaled expertise of mechanics and chemistry.

Our print production flexibility allows us to produce down to a minimum of 120 square yards. ColourOptics also offers a full-design and trial facility – even better – it allows us to produce small quantities for mock-up rooms and corridor areas. As an alternative solution to providing fine quality woven carpet, print can meet almost any budget requirement and project criteria imposed by a client. Our ColourOptics program offers products with 100% nylon, 80% wool/20% nylon cut-pile or 100% nylon loop pile configurations. Production is programmed at a width of 13’2″ (4 meters), with a standard Lobac® backing. Other options include an attached pad or EasyLift backing, providing extra underfoot comfort and exceptional wear characteristics.
