Smartstrand Silk Forever Clean offers maximum softness that can only be achieved through maximum durability. To prove, once and for all, that our ultimate carpet is as strong as it is soft, we took SmartStrand Silk to the Birmingham Zoo to meet Max the Rhino.

We installed both SmartStrand Silk and a competitive premium soft nylon in the zoo enclosure of Max the Rhino. After two weeks with a 5,400-pound rhinoceros, both carpets were covered with more than just mud.


After a thorough professional cleaning, the nylon soft carpet showed signs of matting, crushing, and stains. Only the SmartStrand Silk carpet released stains and remained beautiful, once again proving that SmartStrand is the most durable, easiest to clean carpet on the planet.

Did you know Wilsonart laminate is 70% paper? Not only is it regarded as the most environmentally friendly surface?  Laminate with AEON™ Technology outperforms traditional laminate on wear resistance, as well as scratch/scuff/mar resistance. In fact, Wilsonart had to invent a new testing method to illustrate the improvement. Laminate finishes offer a range from dramatic and playful to natural and subdued.
