Prep Wall Covering (Acousticord) by Tretford is a high-traffic acoustic wall carpet manufactured in Ireland and made with 80% goat hair. The goat hair is dyed from its original color, rather than being bleached first, which gives the carpets a stunning, natural depth of color. It is available in 34 vibrant colors and has the world famous ribbed construction for fabulous clean lines. This color palette takes note of global trends and preferences in wall coverings. It offers designers and customers a vast range from which to choose from, blending house colors and wall design to perfection.
Prep is extremely durable and can be installed in offices, banks, shops, showrooms, universities, colleges, schools, sports centers, hospitals, institutions, hotels, residential homes, airports, ticket offices, receptions areas and lounges.
We also stock this weave in our European facility.
