Step Up - Barrier Matting

Step Up is an entrance barrier carpet tile from IVC, designed to stop dirt and provide a seamless colour flow into the European manufacturer’s carpet tiles.

Made from stain-resistant Duracolor yarn in a tip-sheared construction that helps to scrape dirt and moisture from soles, Step Up works to catch up to 80% of all incoming dirt before it hits the main floor. In four neutral colourways, which are also an exact match for bases in Creative Spark and Art Intervention series carpet tiles, Step Up takes coordination to a whole new level. Serving an important practical duty without adversely affecting aesthetics, the barrier carpet tile keeps floors looking fabulous.

Using 30% recycled content Duracolor fibre and IVC’s EcoFlex NXT backing, Step Up features 45% recycled content by weight to make it a more sustainable choice. It can also be recycled at the end of its life. The barrier carpet tile should be installed for approximately six steps from the point of entrance, forming an organic buffer between outdoors and indoors and stopping dirt before it hits the floor.
