Foss Floors creates non-woven needle punch floor covering and specialty flooring products. The company has an unwavering commitment to environmentally sustainable, American-made manufacturing. The computerized production facilities in Rome and Chatsworth, Georgia use 100% recycled PET polyester. The polyester comes from post-consumer plastic drinking bottles. Carpets from Foss Floors resist deterioration caused by mold, mildew, and odor. The products are durable, will not unravel, built for stretch-in installation, and you can cut them to fit any area.
Carpet Express recently renovated the showroom at 915 Market Street. The products used for the flooring are from Pentz Commercial and Engineered Floors Hard Surfaces. The luxury vinyl tile and carpet tile compliment each other well, and they really add a sophisticated look to the space.
The luxury vinyl tile from Engineered Floors Hard Surfaces is Bella Sera from the company’s Triumph collection. This product is water-proof and pet friendly. Installation is easy because it is a click lock product, and it has a ceramic bed finish. You can learn more about the Triumph collection by reading our blog “Triumph Luxury Vinyl Tile – Engineered Floors.”
The carpet tile from our Showcase Pentz Collection is High Velocity Modular in the color Magazine. This product is 24 inches by 24 inches wide and features the fiber Encore solution dyed Ultima Nylon. This carpet tile is made in America, and it is stain-proof and Green Label Plus certified.
Stylish Solids and Patterns from Pentz Commercial Carpet
Pentz Commercial carpets and carpet tile are made in the United States. You can get beautiful solids and patterns in broadloom carpet or carpet tile. The Pentz Commercial carpet options consist of Encore SD Ultima nylon fiber or APEX SDP polyester fiber. These carpets are great for commercial spaces because they retain their appearance for a long time, resist stains, and they are easy to clean.

The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) serves as the purchasing arm for the U.S. government. Broadloom carpet and carpet tile purchased by the government must meet the Gold Level certification requirements of the NSF/ANSI 140 standard as part of the GSA’s overall Sustainable Acquisition Goals. GSA requires that all flooring options purchased through the agency must meet sustainability requirements.
Approved Types of Flooring
The GSA approves other types of flooring as well such as carpet padding, luxury vinyl tile, and sheet vinyl. The flooring options available are under the Schedule 72 – Furnishings and Floor Coverings on the U.S. General Services Administration website. We sell many GSA approved products from companies such as Shaw, Mohawk, Interface, Mannington, and other manufacturers.
Stylish Designs of Carpet and LVT
Interface may manufacture carpet, but they sell design. As one of the most trusted names in commercial carpet tile, Interface has led the industry in design, sustainability, and high performance carpet tile. Carpet Express is excited to offer Interface Carpets to our customers. Call 800-922-5582 today!
Interface specializes in less is more. The company uses fewer resources and constantly strives to use more sustainable flooring solutions. The company introduced TacTiles, which are a glue-free installation system. TacTiles adheres carpet tiles to one another to create a “floating” floor, which provides better flexibility. The company also created Cool Carpet, which is their climate-neutral carpet tile program. This program zeros out all greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with the entire life cycle of the carpet tile. Interface also has Intersept, which is a powerful preservative that is safe and effective at protecting carpet tile from mold growth and odors. In addition, the company uses ART, their proprietary Appearance Retention Test that effectively stimulates years of soiling, wear, and routine maintenance to test the durability of their carpet tiles.
Interface focuses on a business model that is renewable, cyclical, and benign. The company focuses on new technologies and systems that reduce or eliminate waste and harmful emissions. They also increase the use of renewable materials and energy sources. The company’s Mission Zero promise is to eliminate any negative impact the company has on the environment by 2020.

You may already know that our hometown of Dalton, GA is often referred to as the “Carpet Capital of the world.”
What you may not know is the incredible leaps and bounds the carpet manufacturers like Mohawk and Shaw have made in recent years to limit their carbon footprint and seek sustainability. As such, flooring manufacturers are now working towards and achieving certifications from the International Living Future Institute’s Petal Challenge and Mohawk was the first to achieve it! Mohawk Carpet, a leading carpet and flooring manufacturer (and basically our neighbor) has been at the forefront of the sustainability movement. Located just a hop, skip, and a jump away from the Dalton city center, Mohawk calls this their “Beacon of Sustainability.”
