Bentley EliteFlex Impervious Carpet Backing

EliteFlex 1.83m Cushion and EliteFlex 1.83m Hardback are optional impervious backings for select Bentley broadloom carpets that add enhanced performance, notably a waterproof layer. This means that popular designs can be fit-for purpose for heavy duty commercial and specified for spaces where additional resilience is needed, such as healthcare, aged care, education, hospitality and retail.

Key Features

EliteFlex Hardback features 5 highly functional layers that improve:

  • moisture protection from spills – keeps moisture to the top layer for easy cleaning and hygeine
  • moisture protection from the slab - no shrinkage at the seams, prevention of material degradation and odours
  • thermal protection from the slab – better ambient temperature in cold weather
  • increased comfort under foot
  • dimensional stability

EliteFlex Cushion back adds a 6th layer for additional:

  • sound reduction
  • under-foot comfort
  • extended appearance of the top carpet by up to 50%

Bentley top carpets feature yarns that:

  • resist soiling
  • resist staining
  • retain texture
  • retain colour
  • are free from topical soil/stain inhibitors/antimicrobials that are harmful to the environment

EliteFlex increases the longevity of the flooring through resistance to moisture, ease of maintenance, and qualities in the fibre of layers that extend the life of the top carpet.

Installation of the 1.83m wide rolls using PermaWeld Premium Seam Sealer ensures moisture does not migrate through the seams

Scope of Use

EliteFlex Cushion and Hardback are ideal for fit-outs that require an aesthetic yet heavy duty commercial soft flooring solution with an impervious layer.

Specify for education, aged care, medical, hospitality, retail and heavy traffic work spaces.
