CHECK BEFORE CUTTING – Is the carpet the correct style, color, size, pattern, texture? Compare it to the sample and look for obvious errors.
Ask the end user to check the material for a possible error in any of the items listed above.
All carpet must be cut with SHARP CUTTING EQUIPMENT to assure a clean cut and a smooth edge for seam sealing.
All carpet edges (especially loop textures) must be sealed with an appropriate seam or edge sealer to prevent raveling. A non-sealed edge will eventually ravel causing the yarn to come out and the secondary back to delaminate.
Pad – for maximum texture retention, we recommend installation over a proper underlayment or pad such as a flat rubber (Tred-MOR 2580, 1562-2, or equivalent) or fiber cushion (synthetic felt) with a minimum weight of 40 oz/sy.
If there are any problems with the carpet that will prevent you from making a good installation, STOP the installation and report the problems to the Stanton Carpet Technical Department. 706.624.9385.
NOTE: All warranties and performance guarantees require proper installation and maintenance of the carpet. Claims against carpet cut and/or installed with obvious errors or defects will not be honored.
For more detailed installation instructions, refer to publication CRI-105-2002 STANDARD FOR INSTALLATION OF RESIDENTIAL CARPET or CRI-104-2002 STANDARD SPECIFICATION OF COMMERCIAL CARPET.
