Godfrey Hirst has announced that they are now encouraging use of the KOOLGLIDE System for installation of wool broadloom products.  According to John Sheffield, Vice President – North America at Godfrey Hirst, the KOOLGLIDE System “allows for a better, lower profile seam, which is critical on low profile products like the wool broadlooms.  It also can make a seam where the edges do not bind when stretched in, which is the number one cause of seam peaking.  Peaked seams account for 80% of our claims and they are installation related, not manufacturing or carpet related.”

Hirst is also encouraging installers to become certified through the Natural Fiber Installation Certification (NFIC) program.  This certification program focuses on the unique installation aspects of natural fiber floor coverings.  Wool, sisal, sea grass, flatweaves and other natural fibers require specialized installation techniques to insure proper seaming and floor applications.

These classes also include certification on installation with the KOOLGLIDE System.
