First Impressions


Company: Advance Flooring Systems

There is much to be said about the phrase ‘first impressions count’. This is a constant challenge with building owners maintaining the appearance of carpet in hardwearing commercial applications.

There are many instances that the product specified is not fit for purpose because, the colour is not appropriate, and/or the construction and fibre of the carpet may not be engineered to withstand the everyday rigours of high foot traffic resulting in a disappointing appearance no matter how much costly maintenance work is applied.

The solution
Advance Flooring Systems are the first to bring Greenpad carpet tiles to the New Zealand market. Greenpad is engineered with DuPont™ Sorona® yarns providing permanent stain resistance that’s built right into the fibre. Unlike Nylon 6 and 6,6 fibres that are used in the majority of other carpet tiles the DuPont™ Sorona® fibres are highly dirt and stain resistant, even to iodine – the ultimate test.

The Greenpad range has attained Environmental Choice accreditation that provides further piece of mind when specifying Greenpad carpet tiles.

In addition, utilising Advance’s highly engineered Entrance Matting Systems right from the start, will trap the majority of dirt and moisture walked in from outside, save in cleaning costs and create a great first impression that counts.

Sustainability a reality with GreenPad Carpet Tiles


Company: Advance Flooring

Advance Flooring’s range of GreenPad DuPont Sorona carpet tiles gave New Zealand’s leader in driveline technology the desired edge in performance, style and sustainability they were seeking in their new South Auckland facility.

Beattys Driveline Technologies have a business based on a simple, practical, yet elegant philosophy: analyse the client’s needs, define the problem, then deliver the best possible solution by looking beyond the obvious and discovered a synergy with GreenPad carpet tiles supplied by Advance Flooring.

GreenPad carpet tiles can help designers, architects and building owners achieve their sustainability goals with a fantastic looking product. Backed by Lifetime Limited Warranties on stain resistance, soil resistance and anti-static and 25 year warranties on fade resistance and abrasive wear you can be assured your floor will remain looking amazing for years to come.

GreenPad Carpet Tiles are made with DuPont Sorona fibre. Sustainably produced plant fibres such as maize make up 37% of DuPont Sorona fibre effectively revolutionizing the carpet tile industry by combining sustainability and performance benefits like never before.

Producing Sorona uses 30% less energy and reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 63% compared to producing an equal amount of nylon 6. Compared to an equal amount of nylon 6.6, the production of Sorona uses 40% less energy and reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 56%. What’s more, no additional chemical treatments are used for stain resistance.

The unique structure of Sorona makes carpet incredibly durable. Carpets made with DuPont Sorona resist crushing because the fibres are crush resistant and retain their shape and texture—step after step, year after year. This high level of carpet durability is perfect for commercial spaces.

The backing of GreenPad carpet tiles can be Mix-Bac – an innovative backing that uses recycled PET bottles – 48 bottles per 1m2. In addition to achieving a high Eco-content in this backing system, it has the added advantage of noise reduction, a softer underfoot feeling and assisting with heating and cooling insulation properties.

Advance Flooring Company is pleased to announce that your selection of GreenPad Carpet Tiles manufactured from DuPont Sorona Fibre is now certified by Environmental Choice New Zealand.

With an increasing range of styles and patterns Advance Flooring are excited to be part of yet another inspired commercial flooring solution and combined with their experience of supplying flooring across New Zealand since 1976 have the ability to help you deliver a world class project.
