Azo Rugged Entrance 1400 Carpet and Module is an indoor-outdoor double ribbed pattern industrial flooring product designed for commercial traffic. Rugged Entrance 1400 resists UV, pool chemicals, salt water, and is suitable for commercial entrances. The product has a breathable water permeable backing.
AZO Rugged Entrance 1400 is manufactured as a proprietary Fiber V-loop double needled 3/8" gauge double rib construction from blended 100% heavy denier (18-240 d.p.f.) solution colored branded ASOTA olefin fibers, in a UV light fade- and chemical and mildew resistant product. The materials have a primary latex backing that extends to the middle of the carpet, but shall not extend to the pile fiber. For crush resistance and clean-ability the carpet shall not have a latex or acrylic finish impregnated face fiber so as to mask minimum presence of heavy denier fibers and lack of needling density.
A proprietary secondary backing is blended from natural and ground recycled rubber and penetrates into half the total thickness to make the carpet water permeable.
Azo Rugged Entrance 1400 rolls or modules are suitable for use outdoors, in entrances, locker rooms, pool areas, around swimming pools; in retail showrooms; in offices and light manufacturing facilities. This weight is marginal for extra heavy traffic use and is not recommended as a spike resistant carpet in golf and country clubs.
Rugged Entrance 1400 must be 100% glued because of it's marginal dimensional stability.
