Tough Enough For Kids, Pets, Rhinos and Elephants
If you simply selected your carpet based on looks alone, SmartStrand would be an obvious choice. But your home demands a carpet that is tough, resilient, and able to withstand the rigors of household action. Mohawk put SmartStrand through all kinds of foot traffic and durability tests. SmartStrand passed them all with no problem.
Then we installed it in a rhino enclosure at the Birmingham Zoo for two straight weeks. After being cleaned, it looked good as new. So Mohawk went several steps further and carpeted the rhino, elephant and camel enclosures at the Dallas Zoo in SmartStrand. But again SmartStrand passed the test with flying colors. SmartStrand fiber is tough enough even for 50,000 POUNDS of constant animal pressure.
What Makes SmartStrand So Durable? Think "Kink." Each carpet strand has a unique "kinked" structure that bends easily and rebounds quickly to resist the crushing and matting that can happen with other carpets.
