Stair runners add class and beauty upon entering a hotel or a home. Upon viewing them they often look like works of art.  Custom stair runners visually enhance a hotels staircase and make a statement about that hotel.  Stair runners can be made from all types of carpet.  They can be as extravagant as you desire.  Stair runners can be used to enhance the appearance of a hotel, business or home. Some hotels where we have installed custom stair runners include: The Brown Palace, The Steamboat Grand, Sonnenalp in Vail, ST Julien in Boulder, Doubletree on I-225.

Wool or synthetic fiber?

A stair runner is typically more decorative than standard carpet and is  woven for stair use. Stair runners are usually woven using wool or synthetic pile fibers.  The fiber comes in many styles and prices.
Either fiber works great and can be said to be better than the other in different ways.  The experts at Coventry provide our customers with all of the information necessary regarding the differences and help you make the right choice for your business or home.

Stair runner installation:
They are  installed over a dense carpet pad using small hidden staples that keep the carpet from moving.  Having a properly installed stair runner is critical for it  to perform well and last for a long time.  Incorrect installation can result in a safety risk and greatly reduce the life of the stair runner.  At Coventry we have installed hundreds of stair runners on all types of staircases.  You will be glad you chose Coventry as you will have a beautiful staircase for years to come.

Maintaining your stair runner:

1.       Vacuum regularly.

2.       Keep the floors by the stairs clean.

3.       Professional carpet cleaner when needed.

 Commercial carpeting is manufactured to be durable, economical and to hold up well over time.  It is designed to hold up to substantial foot traffic while still looking great.  A commercial space with heavy foot traffic should select a commercial carpet, not a residential carpet, to withstand heavy traffic on a regular basis.

How long will Commercial Carpeting Last?

Commercial carpet is designed to hold up well in a busy  company environment and will last longer than residential carpet would under the same heavy use. The lifespan of a commercial carpet can be anywhere from three years to fifteen depending on a several factors, including: 

  • Fibers: Commercial carpet is usually nylon because it is easy to clean and can come with stain resistance.
  • Density: The more dense the carpet, the longer it lasts.
  • Colors: Darker colors and multiple color patterns hide stains better and will look better for longer time periods.
  • Installation: Professional carpet installation is recommended so that the carpeting will hold up to the heavy traffic.

 While commercial carpet  is primarily used in retail and office spaces, it can be used in any place where you want to a durable flooring .

Advantages of Commercial Carpet 

  • It is affordable and lasts for a long time.
  • Designed to be more durable  so thousands of people walking on it will not harm the carpet fibers.
  • It is usually stain-resistant reducing how often is needs to be cleaned and replaced.
  • Less expensive than residential carpet because it is made from affordable fibers.
  • It comes in a wide range of colors and patterns that can fit into any office space.

Disadvantages of Commercial Carpet

  • Rough texture.
  • High quality carpet can be expensive.
  • Less comfortable to stand on than residential carpet. A thicker underlayment can reduce this issue.
  • Lower quality carpet  can have fibers that crush quickly with heavy use.

Commercial Carpet Materials 

  • Nylon is often the first choice because of its durability,  appearance and stain resistance.
  • Olefin is slightly less durable and has a shorter lifespan.  Olefin is less expensive than nylon which is great if you have a smaller budget or are planning on moving in a few years.

Types of commercial carpet construction

  • Cut pile is usually the most expensive and nicest.  This style is tighter and softer and is great for higher end office spaces.
  • Loop  is the most common type. The fibers are  looped without being cut preventing fraying and providing extra durability.
  • Carpet tiles can be made from cut pile or loop fibers. Tiles come in squares that can be placed directly on the floor. Tiles can be removed and replaced easily.  You can replace damaged or worn out places instead of the entire carpet.

Listed below are a few of the commercial places we have installed carpet. The Brown Palace Hotel (Denver), St. Julian Hotel (Boulder), Sonnenalp Hotel (Vail),Steamboat Grand Hotel (Steamboat Springs), The Glass House (Denver) Paramount Café ( Denver),  Southridge Rec Center (Highlands Ranch), Union Station (Denver).
